Microsoft has announced yesterday a new build for PC and Mobile to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring. Build 14383 for PC removed the desktop watermark because the developers are “beginning to check in final code in preparation for releasing the Windows 10 Anniversary Update” that will be launched on August 2. Microsoft will continue to bring builds until then, but today we’ll focus on Build 14383 and its changes.
Build 14383 For PC
According to the change log, Microsoft has prepared new upgrades for the Quick Action area of Action Center and it changed the keyboard shortcut to invoke Cortana in listening mode to Win + Shift + C based on feedback from Insiders. Users can download available extensions for Edge browser by following the link to “Get more extensions from the Store” under the Extensions pane, and if they have a Surface Book, they will no longer experience the issue that occurred when disconnecting the device from an external monitor. Other issues fixed in this build are related to:
– the Settings app, which was showing media controls in the taskbar preview window;
– the dialog content which no longer displaying correctly when dragging the file comparison or manage library dialogs between two monitors with different DPIs;
– the checkmark that indicated a selected state in app bar toggle buttons wasn’t visible in high contrast;
– some Bluetooth mice were sometimes accelerating erratically when moving the cursor across the screen;
– some websites were causing a memory leak and became unresponsive in Microsoft Edge when the LastPass extension had been enabled;
– Explorer.exe would hang after a tooltip is displaying with certain monitor configurations etc.
Build 14383 For Mobile
The battery performance has been improved, an issue related to Microsoft Edge which appeared when zooming in and out of embedded maps and resulting in the map jumping to an unexpected location, has been fixed, and some Lumia devices have problems with volume mute not working when playing YouTube videos that use the OPUS audio codec. The developers have also fixed an issue that affected Orange SIM users who weren’t able to make Store purchases using mobile operator billing, and sometimes, keyboard was outputting @ and € instead of “a” and “e” for certain languages. Lumia 535 owners have complained that some Windows Phone 8.1 games were playing in slow motion, so this issue has been fixed as well.
