Windows 10 Build 14295 for PC and Mobile released to Windows Insiders


Microsoft today released Windows 10 Build 14295 to Windows Insiders in the Fast Ring for PC and Mobile. The latest build of Windows 10 does not include a tonne of new features, but it includes a few improvements as per usual. Additionally, the latest update fixes quite a few bugs which are always nice to see.

Here’s what’s fixed for PC

  • We fixed the issue that was causing PCs to freeze when plugging in an Xbox One or Xbox 360 controller and other gamepads.
  • We fixed an issue where Microsoft Edge would refresh the tab if you pressed caps lock in a password field.
  • We fixed an issue preventing the Xbox app and other Xbox Live enabled apps and games from signing in.
  • We have fixed the driver bug that prevents Kaspersky Anti-Virus, Internet Security, or the Kaspersky Total Security Suite installed from working as expected in builds from the Development Branch.

Here’s what’s fixed for Mobile

  • We fixed the issue where If you reset your phone on Build 14291 and restore your phone from a backup, restore will fail to install apps from your backup’s apps list leaving blank grey titles on Start. You should be able to reset your phone on this build, do a restore from a backup, and have your apps installed and restored appropriately.
  • We fixed an issue where new languages and keyboards were not downloading. However, there is an issue where the “reboot” UX doesn’t appear in the Settings app after downloading a new language or keyboard. You will need to go to Update & security > Phone update and restart your phone manually from there for the new language and keyboard to go into effect.

As you may notice, Microsoft did not include a lot of new things in this build as the company is very close its annual developer conference, Build 2016 which is happening later this month. We are told that Microsoft will show off a 1430x build at the keynote, possibly 14308 or 14306 which should have a lot more features — including improvements to the Action Centre and Cortana.

As per usual, we will have a closer look at the build once we have it installed on our PCs, until then, discuss what you think of the latest build in the comment section below. Happy downloading! 🙂
