Microsoft just released a new preview build for its upcoming Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, which is slated for a release next month. Windows 10 Build 16275 is now available for Windows Insiders enrolled in the Fast Ring.
That being said, the new build does not arrive with any headline grabbing feature so to speak. Instead, it primarily focuses on bug fixes and performance improvements. For instance, Build 16275 fixes the an issue with the task bar that looked rather awkward when you boot your PC with an external monitor connected via a different DPI. Also, the new build brings several fixes for Microsoft’s Edge browser, along with gameplay improvements to Asphalt 8 racing game, as well as improved mouse sensitivity.
“We are now at the point of the development cycle for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update where our focus is now on stabilization for release to the world. This means that we intend to release new builds to Insiders more quickly and that these builds will include mostly bug fixes. You’ll notice that this build includes a bunch of good bug fixes Insiders will enjoy,” Dona Sarkar, the head of the Windows Insider program, explained in a post.
Also, there are no know issues listed with Build 16275. However, there are quite a few fixes listed which you can find in the changelog below:
- We fixed an issue resulting in Asphalt 8 not accepting input in recent flights.
- 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 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 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 progress wheels on certain websites in Microsoft Edge unexpectedly moving out of place during their rotation.
- 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 the taskbar being unexpectedly thick if you booted up the PC while plugged in to an external monitor with a different DPI.
Windows 10 build 16275 is specifically aimed at Windows Insiders enrolled in the Fast ring, however, Microsoft says that users in the Skip Ahead channel can also grab the build. But doing so would mean that they would be unable to re-join Skip Ahead if they decide to switch back to the Fast Ring. Put simply, Skip Ahead users should not go for this build as they could be kicked from the program and then will be unable to re-join.
