Microsoft has started releasing Windows 10 Preview build 14376 to Insiders on the Fast ring. Today’s build is available to both the desktop and mobile Insiders, bringing some important bug fixes and improvements.

The company has gone forward to release four new builds today, after the release of Windows 10 Preview 14372 last week. “Since you all seemed to like the breakneck build pace last week, we’re starting the week off right and releasing not one, not two, not three…but *four* builds today,” Dona Sarkar said in the announcement post. She further noted that the new preview brings over 1800 bug fixes over the last build, along with some “notable” improvements.

One major change that has been announced with today’s release is the changes in “Messaging everywhere” feature. This feature allowed users to send and receive text messages from Windows 10 phones to/from your Windows 10 PC. The company has decided not to release this feature as part of Windows 10 Anniversary Update, which means Insiders too won’t have the ability to respond to text messages directly from their PCs. Microsoft will be integrating this feature in the Skype team. Doesn’t seem like a good decision, but we will see in the coming weeks how this pans out.

Here is what’s fixed and improved in Windows 10 Preview build 14376 for PC and Mobile.

Fixed in Windows 10 Preview 14376 PC

We’re rolling out an Store update (11606.1001.25) that improves performance and reliability and includes fixes for accessibility as well.

Clicking on networks or VPN connections in the network flyout on the taskbar should now launch the network settings page like it should. We also fixed an issue where the network flyout would sometimes only show the network settings link, despite being currently connected to Wi-Fi.

For my dev peeps: we fixed the issue causing an error message when you enable Developer Mode due to the necessary package needed from Windows Update not being published appropriately. Go forth and create!

We have updated Narrator to now support using physical volume buttons to adjust the volume while Narrator is in Scan Mode. We also fixed an issue that could result in Narrator crashing when arrowing through list entries.

We have updated Windows Hello on the Lock screen to not repeat the name of the person logging in, when it is already displayed on the screen.

We have fixed an issue where you might be unable to type in some UWP apps. We also fixed an issue resulting in certain Polish characters being duplicated when typed into UWP apps.

We fixed an issue where the Lock screen background might not be displayed correctly.

We fixed an issue where your password would revert be being hidden if you tried to edit it while holding the reveal button.

We fixed an issue where the search dropdown in the Settings app could end up displaying above the search box instead of below it. We also fixed an issue where the “For developers” settings page would be blank while checking for an optional package, and an issue resulting in no handwriting, speech and other optional components being listed for languages that do support them.

We fixed an issue that could result in not being able to turn on “set time zone automatically”.

We fixed an issue where the icons in some Start menu tiles could appear zoomed in, for example Alarms & Clock app or Calculator app.

We have improved the consistency in scrolling and zooming speeds between monitors when using a precision touchpad on a multiple-monitor setup.

We fixed an issue that could result in Explorer.exe crashing after receiving a notification from Microsoft Edge.

We fixed an issue where the caret might jump to the beginning of the line, rather than maintaining current y axis position when using the up and down arrow keys in a textbox in Microsoft Edge.

We fixed an issue resulting in an authentication error when launching mstsc.exe from an elevated Command Prompt.

Windows 10 Preview 14376 for Mobile – fixes and improvements

We’re rolling out an Store update (11606.1001.25) that improves performance and reliability and includes fixes for accessibility as well.

The Gadgets app has been updated to fix issues using it with a Microsoft Display Dock.

We fixed an issue that could result in tiles pinned to Start from within an app being blank after a restore. We also fixed an issue that could result in multiple Live tiles no longer updating until the phone had been rebooted.

We fixed an issue making it difficult to download certain offline maps via Settings > System > Offline maps, as the list would jump back to the top when you reached close to the bottom.

We fixed an issue resulting in the Camera app intermittently freezing for a second when used in certain apps.

We fixed an issue resulting in links no longer working in Microsoft Edge after exiting one-handed mode while a webpage is loading. We also fixed an issue where the enter key would act as if it had been pressed twice on some websites, resulting in two new lines being entered.

We have improved the reliability of going between camera roll and Camera app.

We fixed an issue where estimated time remaining for battery life under Settings > System > Battery could be clipped. We also improved performance of enumerating the list of apps in under Settings > System > Storage.

We fixed an issue where the link in Cortana to download a speech language would open the Settings app homepage instead of going directly to Settings > Time and language > Language.

We fixed an issue where the checkmarks in checkboxes in high contrast mode didn’t use the correct contrast ratio making them difficult to see.

The company has said that there are no known issues in this build for desktop; you can read more about the known issues for Mobile here. If you are a Fast ring Insider and can’t see the new build, don’t worry. Microsoft is also pushing some builds into its internal rings, which is why it might take a while before you see the new release. Along with these, the Windows team has also started rolling out Windows 10 build 14372 to the Slow ring.
