Windows 10 Build 19044.1739 (21H2) is now available for beta testing in the Release Preview Channel of the Insider Program. This update contains several fixes that will be published in the production channel via an optional cumulative update scheduled to arrive in a few days.
It is important to understand that Build 19044.1739 isn’t a feature update and it doesn’t come with any visual improvements or features, but Microsoft has confirmed that the patch could address the annoying app crashes and improve the speed of file transfer if you were affected in the first place.
With Windows, things are as simple as can be. You can select files or folders and transfer them to the other partition or plug your phone into any open USB port on the computer, and transfer the data to the mobile device. However, a bug in the OS could result in slower file transfer.
Microsoft says the update should fix an issue that causes file copying to be slower than usual even on modern hardware. We don’t know when the bug was first reported, but the issue seems to have been flagged by many users, according to posts in the Feedback Hub.
Another bug where the system could stop responding if you sign out of your Microsoft OneDrive account has been resolved. This happens when users attempt to exit OneDrive when the app or the service itself is in use.
Microsoft is fixing app crashes on Windows 10
Windows 10’s May 2022 Update, which brought several important fixes, apparently broke apps that rely on the .NET 3.5 framework. While not every user or app has been affected, Microsoft acknowledged the reports and promised to fix the problem in a future cumulative update.
The issue was reported by a small number of users, but it was wide enough for the tech giant to acknowledge and fix it. In addition to .NET Framework compatibility issues, there is another bug that would crash apps if they rely on GPU.
As per the release notes, Microsoft fixed a potential performance issue where certain apps (not all) could crash if your device comes with the graphics card and apps use a file called d3d9.dll. If your machine is affected, d3d9.dll might cause apps on Windows to close unexpectedly.
As mentioned above, Build 19044.1739 is currently available in the Release Preview Channel only and it will begin rolling out as an optional update soon.
