Windows 10 19H1 Known issues

  • When using dark mode, File Explorer’s context menu has an unexpectedly thick white border.
  • Task Manager is not reporting accurate CPU usage. This should be fixed in the next flight.
  • Arrows to expand “Background processes” in Task Manager are blinking constantly and weirdly.

Known issues for Developers

  • If you install any of the recent builds from the Fast ring and switch to the Slow ring – optional content such as enabling developer mode will fail. You will have to remain in the Fast ring to add/install/enable optional content. This is because optional content will only install on builds approved for specific rings.
