Windows 10 PC Preview 11102 Released to the Fast Ring – Features & Known Issues
Microsoft has released Windows 10 PC preview build 11102 to the Fast ring members of the Windows Insider Program.
Windows 10 11102 Preview build available in the Fast ring:
Microsoft promised in December that we will be seeing more preview builds coming to Insiders this year. Speeding the frequency of previews sent to the Fast ring, Microsoft seems to be following that promise pretty well so far. Only a week after Windows 10 11099 was released, today comes a new Preview build, Windows 10 11102.
Windows 10 11099 didn’t bring any major improvements and focused on structural improvements to OneCore, underlying core shared across all Windows 10 devices. This build was followed by a report that shared that Microsoft is considered to cut back some earlier planned features for Windows 10 Redstone update as it intends to focus more on improving OneCore. Following a rather unexciting build, Windows 10 11102 seems to be a little better on the front end with some new features brought in to Microsoft Edge. Here’s what is new in Microsoft Edge in Windows 10 11102 Insider Preview build:
New history menu in Microsoft Edge: A highly requested feature by Insiders, you can now right-click on the back and forward buttons in Microsoft Edge for quick access to your recently visited websites in the current tab. Give it a try and let us know what you think.
Windows 10 11102 known issues:
Gabe Aul has also shared the known issues in the new PC preview build.
- Some PC games will crash switching from windowed mode to full screen, upon game resolution change, or upon launch due to a bug in Windows graphics stack. We have observed this with The Witcher 3, Fallout 4, Tomb Raider, Assassin’s Creed, and Metal Gear Solid V but it may occur with other titles as well.
- With this build (and with the last build), applications such as Narrator, Magnifier, and third-party assistive technologies may experience intermittent issues or crashes. If you rely on screen readers or other software, you should not use this build. This issue will be fixed with the next build.
- You might see a WSClient.dll error dialog after logging in. We’re working on a fix for this but as a workaround, you can run the following in Command Prompt with administrative rights: schtasks /delete /TN “\Microsoft\Windows\WS\WSRefreshBannedAppsListTask” /F
- While attempting to update to this build, your PC may show a message that your wireless card is not compatible with Windows 10. The workaround is to visit the support page for your PC or wireless card and install the newest driver that is available.
- The Connect button does not show up in Action Center.
