The latest Windows 10 preview for PCs and phones was released for Windows Insiders in the Fast Ring and it comes with a few minor improvements. Of course, many bugs have been fixed, but this build contains two issues. One of them might prevent from completing the update if you have installed a third party antivirus product, while Windows Ink Workspace might crash when using the protractor. Below we’ll tell you more about Windows 10 build 14955 that is available for download via Windows Update.
According to the change-log, users will be able to draw along the protractor, while the degree visual was updated to be clearer, as the black text will appear on a white background, instead of a red background. Also, by bringing context awareness in Narrator, now it will be easier to navigate around the OS, as users will be “notified about different groups or other areas you move to, such as groups in the Office ribbon. To configure the amount of context you hear, cycle through options with ALT + Caps Lock + /. To change whether the context is read before the item with focus or after, use CTRL + Caps Lock + /. To check the context at any point. Press Caps Lock + D twice.”
In addition, Outlook Mail will allow users to mark emails as read, to move them, archive them or delete them directly from the notification. Other additions to Outlook Mail include support for @mentions, as well as pop-up mail.
Here are some of the bugs that Microsoft has fixed in this build:
– Users were prevented from signing into Feedback Hub, Groove, MSN News and other apps with their Microsoft Account after signing out of them;
– Task Manager was always opening with the default view, even if it was configured on the previous launch;
– Certain USB drives didn’t mount automatically or via Device Manager, although they were mountable using Disk Management;
– Accessibility settings failed to roam down-level to some computers running the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. A sync loop was triggered and performance issues were caused
– Files weren’t automatically selected after being pasted into a folder in File Explorer;
– Microsoft Edge prevented dragging content out of the browser to other windows;
– Microsoft Edge was crashing when using the Share button to share web pages and PDFs to Mail.
