Its worth checking every now and then if the base version of Windows 10 has changed


UPDATED on Feb 03, 2016: Release of Windows 10 Insider Preview build 14257 for PC.

If you are using Windows 10 Insider Preview (previously known as Technical Preview) in your computer, here is a good news for you.

Microsoft has released a new update Build 14257 of Windows 10 to public which comes with many bug fixes and improvements. This is the 5th Insider Preview build of Windows 10 released after the November Update build 10586 (Threshold 2). This new build also comes via new "RS1" (RedStone1) development branch.

This build doesn't contain big noticeable changes or exclusive features. It is basically focused on bug fixes and general improvements.

WHAT'S FIXED:

  • The issue of periodic app crashes or other memory related app errors due to a memory management change has been resolved. If you were having issues launching the Git client for Windows, you should now be able to launch it in this build.
  • The Connect button now shows up again in Action Center.
  • F12 Developer Tools will now load correctly in Microsoft Edge web browser.
  • [Fixed] Suggested apps were being shown on the Start menu even though "Occasionally show suggestions in Start" option was disabled under Settings -> Personalization -> Start page.
  • [Fixed] If you try to change the Lock screen picture with "Get fun facts, tips, tricks and more on your lock screen" option enabled, it will revert back to the default.
  • [Fixed] The positions of desktop icons get jumbled up after switching DPI settings from 100% to 150% or 175%.
  • [Fixed] Pasting files into a new .zip file (compressed folder) in File Explorer by either right-clicking or Ctrl+V hotkey would not work. You should be able to paste tiles into new .zip files just fine now.
KNOWN ISSUES:

  • You might see a WSClient.dll error dialog after logging in. Microsoft is working on a fix for this but as a workaround, you can run following command in Command Prompt as Administrator:schtasks /delete /TN "\Microsoft\Windows\WS\WSRefreshBannedAppsListTask" /F
  • If you choose "Reset This PC" from Settings -> Update & Security -> Recovery page, your PC will be in an unusable state. There is no workaround if your PC gets into this state and you will need to reinstall Windows. This issue will be fixed in the next build. You can still rollback to the previous build if for some reason this build doesn't work out for you. This bug also existed in previous build 14251 so avoid resetting your PC on these builds.
  • The front-facing camera is unusable on PCs with Intel RealSense resulting in being unable to use Windows Hello or any other apps that utilize the front-facing camera.
  • After logging in to your PC, you may hit a UI issue in which Airplane Mode will incorrectly show as ON even though your PC's Wi-Fi is powered on. This is due to a timing issue between how the UI communicates and waits for the underlying platform to respond. The UI for Airplane Mode essentially does not wait long enough for the device's physical radios to power on before reporting the current state. You can toggle the Airplane Mode on and off to get Airplane Mode back to showing the correct state.

The new build is available for download via Windows Update, so it'll be automatically downloaded and installed in all computers running Windows 10 Insider Preview soon.
