Microsoft releases Windows 10 Build 14936 to Windows Insiders


Windows Insiders, there’s a new build out for those on Fast Ring. Microsoft has just pushed out build 14936 to Insiders in the Fast Ring for both PCs and Mobile devices. Needless to say, the new build does not introduce any major new improvements apart from the usual bug fixes — and that’s probably because Microsoft released build 14931 just last week. However, the update does bring a few minor improvements and bug fixes which I am sure a lot of Insiders will appreciate.

Firstly, Windows 10 will now install Ubuntu version 16.04 instead of Ubuntu 14.04 when you developers use the Bash feature. The build also fixes an issue which caused Windows Explorer crash frequently for some users, which was a much-needed fix. Microsoft’s Dona Sarkar also talks about some new Edge extensions such as Turn Off the Lights, Microsoft Personal Shopping Assistant on the announcement blog post, but you can still use those extensions if you are on an older build of Windows 10 (Redstone 2).

As per usual, it is worth noting that Microsoft is still pretty early in the development of Windows 10 Redstone 2. We probably won’t be seeing any exciting new features with the upcoming builds, but features should start showing up by the end of this year or early 2017. Redstone 2 is expected to be quite a major update, especially for Windows 10 Mobile devices, so things should get much more interesting next year. The update is supposed to come sometime in 2017 and just like the last two Windows 10 updates, Redstone 2 will also be a free update for existing Windows 10 users.

If you are part of the Windows Insider program, make sure to download the latest build on your Windows 10 device — which you can download by heading over to Windows Update in the Settings app.
