Microsoft releases Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 19640

Microsoft have released another fast ring build for Windows Insiders. Build 19640 only has two changes to the OS: A change to storage sense clearing cloud based downloads folder and a slight change to the login screen.

Recent changes to the fast ring builds have been pretty dull, now that the May 2020 Update is available lets hope we get some focus on new features from Microsoft.
UPDATE: Here is my hands on video:

General changes & improvements

Based on feedback, if your Downloads folder is synced to a cloud provider, we are disabling the option to have Storage Sense automatically clear out your Downloads folder on a cycle.

We updated our login logic, so if your PC is set up so you need to type in your username when logging in, accidentally starting your username with a space will no longer result in an error.

Known issues

We’re looking into an issue where some devices booting from eMMC storage bugchecked when resuming from hibernate.

We’re looking into reports of the update process hanging for extended periods of time when attempting to install a new build.

We’re working on fixing an issue for a future Insider Preview build where in Settings > Privacy, the Documents and Downloads sections show a broken icon next to their page name (just a rectangle).

We’re looking into reports that taskbar preview thumbnails aren’t rendering consistently (showing a blank area).
