Microsoft released Windows 10 19H1 Build 18282 for Windows Insiders on the fast ring

Microsoft have a new Windows 10 19H1 build for Windows Insiders on the fast ring. The new build is 18282 and it features a new light mode for Windows. The light mode changes the taskbar and other areas of the UI with a new light look, replacing the dark feel when in light mode.

There is also new light theme wall paper. I can’t wait to give this a try.

Other Changes

The snipping tool has a new feature, you can now snip active windows.

There are new printing options:

First and foremost, the modern print dialog now supports light theme!

Second: In order to improve clarity, we’ve updated a number of the printing options to now include icons to help you easily and quickly identify the one you’re looking for. We’ve also added a line of description to some of the dropdown settings. This can be seen in the Pages example below, and in other settings if you click More Settings at the bottom of the print dialog.

Finally: If you have a long printer name, it will now wrap rather than being cut off.

Windows Update

Microsoft have made some changes to Windows Update. They have made it easier to find the Pause Update feature by adding it to the Windows Update page. Active Hours now tracks usage of your device so it can workout the best time to reboot your device.

Here are the other changes and known issues. Look out for my hands on video soon.

General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC

We fixed an issue causing File Explorer to freeze when interacting with video files in the last few flights.

We fixed an issue resulting in certain x86 apps and games having blurry text rendering in the last few flights, where the text appeared to have a shadow.

If you were seeing certain games launch to launch with an error citing unexpected kernel modification detected, please the games for available updates and let us know if you encounter further issues.

When you hover over the navigation pane in Start, after a short period it will now automatically expand. This is something that a portion of Insiders have had for a little bit now, and after finding positive results we’re now rolling it out to all Insiders.

We’re adding a shadow to Action Center, to match the shadow seen along the borders of our other taskbar flyouts.
