Microsoft have released another Windows 10 19H1 build for Windows Insiders on the fast ring. The new build is 18356 and includes the new screen-mirroring feature for Android. The feature is going to roll out over the next few days and you will need to have a Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+/S9 or S9+ to use mirroring. You will be able to see your phones screen in Windows 10 saving you having to get your phone out of your pocket or bag.
The changes to the OS a minimal as you would expect this close to the release of the update but the known issues are now down to four. Lookout my hands on video soon.
General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC
- We fixed a Microsoft Edge crash encountered when interacting with combo boxes in PDF forms.
- We fixed an issue that could result in night light being on after an upgrade, even though all the settings showed that night light should be off.
- We fixed an issue where using the slider to adjust the night light strength could result in night light getting stuck on.
- We fixed an issue where night light was skipping the fade transition when it was turned off (manually or scheduled).
- We fixed an issue resulting in increased battery drain while the screen was on in recent builds.
- We fixed an issue resulting in the “…” menu contents being clipped for certain apps like Voice Recorder and Alarms and Clock when the app was full screen.
- We fixed an issue resulting in some Insiders experiencing bugcheck green screens citing a KERNEL_SECURITY_VIOLATION error.
- Launching games that use anti-cheat software may trigger a bugcheck (GSOD).
- Creative X-Fi sound cards are not functioning properly. We are partnering with Creative to resolve this issue.
- Some Realtek SD card readers are not functioning properly. We are investigating the issue.
- We’re investigating an issue preventing VMware from being able to install or update Windows Insider Preview builds. Hyper-V is a viable alternative if available to you.
