Microsoft Almost at the Finish Line – New Windows 10 1903 Build Is Out With Just Two Bug Fixes


Microsoft has released Windows 10 19H1 Insider Preview Build 18361 to Insiders in the Fast Ring. Almost at the finish line, today's Preview Build brings just two bug fixes and the list of known issues is also getting shorter.

It appears we might just be able to get our hands on the upcoming Windows 10 version 1903 aka the April 2019 Update by the end of this month. The company does seem to be having some issues with fixing the GSOD issue triggered by anti-cheat software. Here's everything that's fixed with today's Preview Build and the list of known issues that are yet to be addressed.
