Another Windows 10 Insider Build (14379) Released for PC and Mobile


Right before the long weekend, Microsoft has started pushing out a new Redstone Preview build. Windows 10 Insider 14379 is available for both PC and Mobile Insiders in the Fast ring. Following the tradition started last week, this week has also brought in two Preview builds to the Insiders. Ahead of the Windows 10 Anniversary Update release on August 2, Microsoft has accelerated the number of Preview builds that it's releasing, to fix the remaining bugs in the operating system. Last Preview  brought in fixes for over 1,800 bugs and today's build continues this bug bashing.

Windows 10 Insider 14379 for PC

In comparison to the previous build, today's release is a smaller build bringing only a handful of improvements. Following is what is improved and fixed in Windows 10 Insider 14379 for PC.

We fixed an issue where the size of the Credential UI might not be big enough to display the contents on a PC with High DPI.

We fixed an issue where Action Center might crash after dismissing a large number of notifications.

We fixed an issue where Centennial app launches from Start or Cortana wouldn’t count towards those apps bubbling up in Start’s “Most used” list.

We fixed an issue where no note would have keyboard focus after minimizing then reopening the Sticky Notes app.

Today's build has only one known issue for PC, where "Continuum from your phone on your PC via the Connect app will not work."

Windows 10 Preview 14379 for Mobile

We fixed an issue that could result in a stray focus rectangle becoming visible in certain apps, such as Groove or Cortana, after bringing up the keyboard.

We fixed an issue where the aspect ratio of images on live tile wasn’t preserved if they need to be shrunk, leading to them appearing stretched.

Known issues for Mobile

You can open PDFs in Microsoft Edge but won’t be able to use touch to interact with the PDF (such as scrolling, pan or zoom). When you try to use touch to interact with a PDF, it will constantly reload the PDF.

We’ve heard you and we are investigating decreases in battery life on older devices such as the Lumia 830, 930, and 1520.

We’re also investigating Wi-Fi disconnect issues – if you are experiencing an issue with your Wi-Fi disconnecting, please see this forum post and make sure to upvote Wi-Fi disconnecting issues in the Feedback Hub.

REMINDER: We have changed the backup format for Windows 10 Mobile devices to reduce the size of the backup stored in OneDrive. As a result, if you do a backup on a device running the latest Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview builds and move back to the released version of Windows 10 Mobile (Build 10586) and restore from your backup – your Start screen layout won’t restore and remain the default Start layout. Your previous backup also gets overwritten. If you need to go back to Build 10586 temporarily, once you are on Build 10586 you should disable backup so it doesn’t overwrite the good backup from Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview builds.

Get the build, and don't forget to let us know what you think of the latest improvements. For more, visit the official post.
