Another Windows 10 1809 Build Is Out – Some Issues Are Yet to Be Fixed Ahead of the Public Release
While we were happy to see just a handful of fixes and no known issues with the last Windows 10 1809 Preview Build, it looks like some bug still need fixing. Microsoft has started releasing Windows 10 Redstone 5 Insider Preview Build 17763 to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring, offering some more fixes and improvements along with two issues with the Task Manager.
Here is the complete changelog of the latest Windows 10 October 2018 Update Preview Build:
General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC
- The build watermark at the lower right-hand corner of the desktop is no longer present in this build. This doesn’t mean we’re done…
- We fixed an issue where touching a Flash element in Microsoft Edge with two or more fingers could result in the tab crashing.
- We fixed an issue where thumbnails and icons might not be rendered if there were any video files saved to the desktop.
- We fixed an issue where certain Bluetooth audio devices wouldn’t play sound in apps that also used the microphone.
- We fixed an issue resulting in an unexpectedly increased use of battery recently when using certain apps like OneNote.
- We fixed an issue in PowerShell where it wasn’t displaying characters correctly in Japanese.
- We fixed an issue resulting in display scaling factors not being applied correctly (so the UI was smaller than expected) when viewing a full screen remote desktop window on a monitor set to certain display scalings.
Known issues with Windows 10 1809 17763
- Task Manager is not reporting accurate CPU usage.
- Arrows to expand “Background processes” in Task Manager are blinking constantly and weirdly.
The Redmond software maker recently released a list of all the features that are either being removed or deprecated with the upcoming Windows 10 October 2018 Update. You can find more details on the alternatives in our earlier post. The next version of Windows 10 is expected to arrive in October but we are hoping the company will be able to deliver the RTM build in the next two weeks.
