Microsoft have released a new Windows 10 build for Windows Insiders on the fast ring. The build is for the “skip ahead” option of the fast ring which is now for delivering builds for the next version of Windows 10. (code named Redstone 4). There is a big jump in build numbers, the build number jumps to 16353. Microsoft are still focusing on the Fall Creators Update so this build from the PRE_RELEASE branch just has a few fixes and improvements.
Here are the changes and lookout for my hands on video soon.
General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC
When the Action Center is black (the default option) the “clear all”, “expand”/”collapse”, and “see more” link text will now all use your accent color – making them pop more and improving discoverability.
We’ve updated the Action Center to now support a two finger touch gesture to dismiss all notifications. Place two fingers vertically within the Action Center near the edge opposite to the side of your screen. Then slide these fingers towards the side of the screen. You will notice all notification groups following your fingers and then dismissing as you slide your fingers off the side of the screen.
We fixed an issue in XAML resulting in text animations appearing slightly blurry in the last flight until the animation had stopped (for example, when loading the main page of Settings).
We fixed an issue resulting in the taskbar being unexpectedly thick if you booted up the PC while plugged in to an external monitor with a different DPI.
We fixed an issue that caused minimized per-monitor DPI aware windows to miss DPI changes and end up with a mix of DPI scaling upon restoring.
We fixed an issue from recent flights where when Slideshow was enabled resuming from sleep a second time might place the Lock screen in a state where it couldn’t be dismissed without pressing Ctrl + Alt + Del.
We fixed an issue resulting in an unexpected change in mouse sensitivity in the last flight for PCs using non-default display scaling.
We fixed an issue resulting in Asphalt 8 not accepting input in recent flights.
We fixed an issue resulting in progress wheels on certain websites in Microsoft Edge unexpectedly moving out of place during their rotation.
We fixed an issue where the Windows Hello strings would appear on top of the page when performing a pin reset from the login screen.
