Microsoft releases Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16281 for Fast Ring PCs

Microsoft has released a new build of Windows 10 to insiders on the fast ring. The build is for the Fall Creators Update and is not a Skip Ahead Build.

The update appears to fix a number of significant issues, including apps failing to start, which is somewhat worrying now we know we are only 6 weeks away from the release of Fall Creators Update on the 17th October.

The update, which only brings fixes and not new features, has the following changes:

  • We fixed an issue resulting in Train Simulator 2017 failing to launch on recent flights.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in not being able to tab into an open PDF in Microsoft Edge after interacting with the any of the Microsoft Edge window elements using mouse.
  • We fixed an issue where the Windows Defender Security Center app icon was missing in taskbar when the app was open, as well in Start’s all apps list. You will also notice that the icon is now un-plated in the taskbar.
  • We’ve made some adjustments to address an issue resulting in sudden and brief CPU spikes where you couldn’t move your mouse. If you’ve encountered this, please try it in this new build and let us know if your experience has improved.
  • We fixed an issue where minimized app windows on mixed-DPI monitor setups might end up drawing offscreen after your PC resumed from sleep.
  • We fixed an issue where if you changed your display language preference to something other than the machine’s default then any app which did not take an update while also getting the updated language resource package from the Store would end up continuing to display its tile in Start in that default language rather than the new language displayed within the app and other system UI.
