Second Windows 10 Preview Released this Week – Microsoft to Iron Out Any Issues Before Anniversary Update
Microsoft is releasing another build for both PC and Mobile this week. Bringing Fast ring Insiders to build 14372, today's release brings nothing new to the operating system. However, it does bring a number of bug fixes and performance improvements.
Windows 10 Insider Preview 14372 for PC and Mobile
Following the release of Windows 10 PC 14371 and Windows 10 Mobile 14371 earlier this week, Microsoft is already releasing a new build. "This build is just one build newer than the last one but has a handful of fixes to improvement overall performance and reliability," Dona Sarkar said. But, if it counts as anything new, you will find Evernote Web Clipper for Microsoft Edge. With this new Edge extension, you can clip the web pages you want to keep and then save them in Evernote.
Known issues for Windows 10 Insider PC 14372
Clicking on networks or VPN connections in the network flyout on the taskbar doesn’t launch the network settings page like it should.
There are a few known issues with the Evernote Web Clipper extension for Microsoft Edge. The Evernote Web Clipper might not load on certain websites and there is no thumbnail image when clipping bookmarks. There are also various visual issues.
When you enable Developer Mode in this build, you will receive an error message because the necessary package needs from Windows Update isn’t being published appropriately. This will prevent you from using Device Portal. We’re working to get this fixed as soon as possible. You can still F5 deploy apps from Visual Studio to your PC.

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.
We’ve heard you and we are investigating decreases in battery life on older devices such as the Lumia 830, 930, and 1520 (devices with SoC 8974 chipsets).
We’re 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.
There is no usual list of bug fixes and performance improvements, so we can't say what those "handful of fixes to improvement [sic] overall performance and reliability," exactly are. If you are a Fast ring member, go ahead and install the latest build and hopefully you will experience stable and improved performance.
