Today Microsoft released two new 19H2 builds (Build 18362.10014 and Build 18362.10015 ) into the Windows 10 Insider Slow Ring.

  • If you are on 19H2 Build 18362.10012 – you will receive Build 18362.10014 with features turned OFF by default. This includes the below-mentioned features as well as the features from the previous release.
  • If you are on 19H2 Build 18362.10013 – you will receive Build 18362.10015 with features turned ON by default.

Microsoft is testing the ability to ship these updates with features turned off by default so that Microsoft can then turn them on via controlled feature rollouts. This means not everyone in the Slow ring will see new features right away.

If you’re on the Windows 10 May 2019 Update and just joining your PC into the Slow ring to take 19H2 updates, it’ll be a virtual “coin toss” as to whether your PC gets features turned on or turned off.

If you are lucky enough to have a build with features turned on, the update brings the following new features:

  • Microsoft has enabled Windows Defender Credential Guard for ARM64 devices for additional protection against credential theft for enterprises deploying ARM64 devices in their organizations.
  • Microsoft has enabled the ability for enterprises to supplement the Windows 10 in S Mode policy to allow traditional Win32 (desktop) apps from Microsoft Intune.
  • Microsoft has updated search in File Explorer to show web-powered suggestions in addition to files locally indexed on the PC.
  • Microsoft has added the ability for Narrator and other assistive technologies to read and learn where the FN key is located on keyboards and what state it is in (locked versus unlocked).

Windows Insiders in the Slow Ring can update to the new build by Checking for Updates in Settings.
