What’s New in Build 16257 For PC

Eye Control (beta)

Yesterday, we announced Eye Control, which makes Windows 10 more accessible by empowering people with disabilities to operate an on-screen mouse, keyboard, and text-to-speech experience using only their eyes. The experience requires a compatible eye tracker, like the Tobii Eye Tracker 4C, which unlocks access to the Windows operating system to be able to do the tasks one could previously accomplish with a physical mouse and keyboard. We are starting by supporting the EN-US keyboard layout, and we are looking to expand to more keyboard layouts in the future. We are excited to release this experience as a beta and would love your feedback!

Setting up Eye Control:

Own or purchase a Tobii Eye Tracker 4C (Coming next will be support for Tobii Dynavox PCEye Mini, PCEyePlus, EyeMobile Plus, and I-series.)
Download and update to Tobii’s Core eye tracking hot fix release 2.10.11.6458 and run calibration with your own profile
Check for Windows Updates; the new Tobii Eye Tracker HIDClass Driver should be found on Windows Update and installed automatically.
Make sure your Tobii eye tracker is connected to your PC and turn on Eye Control by going to Settings > Ease of Access > Other Options > Eye control.



Eye Control launchpad – When you turn on Eye Control, the launchpad will appear on the screen. This allows you to access the mouse, keyboard, text-to-speech, and to reposition the UI to the opposite side of the screen.




Eye Control interaction model – To interact with the UI for Eye Control, simply look at the UI with your eyes until the button activates. A visual affordance will appear around the UI that you are looking at.

Eye Control mouse – To control the mouse, select the mouse from the launchpad, position your eyes on the screen where you want the cursor to be placed, fine tune the position, and select what action you want to take (left click, double left click, right click, or cancel).





Eye Control keyboard – To use the keyboard, select the keyboard from the launchpad, and dwell at the characters you want to type. You can type numbers and symbols on the &123 page and function keys on the Fn page. We currently support the EN-US keyboard layout.




Eye Control shape-writing – Type faster with your eyes by shape-writing on the Eye Control keyboard. To use shape writing, turn it on from the keyboard settings (found on the Fn page). Once it is on, you can form words by dwelling at the first and last character of the word, and simply glancing at letters in between. A hint of the word predicted will appear on the last key of the word. If the prediction was incorrect, you can simply select an alternative prediction provided.





Eye Control text-to-speech – Communicate with your family and friends in person by using text-to-speech. To use text-to-speech, select text-to-speech from the launchpad. From here, you can use the keyboard to type sentences and have it spoken aloud. At the top are phrases that are spoken aloud immediately and can be edited to say different words. This uses the default text-to-speech voices, which can be changed in Settings > Time & Language > Speech > Text-to-speech.





Eye Control settings – Access settings from the Fn keyboard page to adjust the dwell times, turn on/off shape-writing, and turn on/off the gaze cursor used to test hardware calibration.





Known Issues:

Eye tracking does not work well in direct sunlight. The device may require new calibration when moving to a location with different lighting conditions.
The launchpad partially blocks the Tobii UI during device calibration. To work around this, turn off Eye Control during calibration and turn it back on when you are done. You can also use touch or mouse to reposition the UI during calibration.
Sometimes shape-writing can get stuck on. You can fix this by dwelling at the shape-writing icon to turn it on and off again
Sometimes the reposition UI icon in the launchpad takes focus after exiting text-to-speech
Hardware support:

Currently, Eye Control works with select Tobii hardware. We are open to working with additional hardware vendors to provide customers a broader set of hardware options to enable this experience.

To learn more:

If you have questions or feedback on how we can continue to improve our products and services, you can also contact us through the Disability Answer Desk (now with ASL support) and Accessibility User Voice Forum. You can learn more about accessibility at Microsoft by visiting, http://microsoft.com/accessibility.


Microsoft Edge Improvements





We’re giving Microsoft Edge a refreshed and more modern look in the browser frame, inspired by the Fluent Design System. The use of Acrylic material provides depth and transparency to the tab bar and other controls, and we’ve improved button animations to feel more responsive and delightful.”

Based on your feedback we’ve adjusted the design of the address bar so now even if the address bar isn’t in focus to start with when you click and drag the text it will remain under the cursor. Previously the text would shift as the “http://” appeared – this change will make it easier to quickly edit parts of the URL.

We fixed an issue where right-clicking on an image in Microsoft Edge and selecting copy then later pasting the clipboard content would result in the image URL being pasted rather than the image itself.
We fixed an issue where if a tab had been opened while Microsoft Edge was in full screen mode, using Ctrl + W to close that tab while still in full screen mode would close the content but leave the tab in the frame.
We fixed an issue where if you had two unrelated tabs in Microsoft Edge and opened a link from the first in a new tab, the new tab would appear to the right of the second tab rather than the first.

Console Improvements

During the Creators Update development we updated the Windows Console to support full 24-bit RGB color and today the Windows Console’s default colors are getting their first overhaul in more than 20 years! Yay!

The default color values have been changed to improve legibility of darker colors on modern screens, and to give the Console a more modern look & feel.




To preserve your preferences, this new color scheme will only be visible in Properties if you clean install this build. For more details about Windows Console, head to the Command Line Blog.

Input Improvements

We’ve improved the performance of launching the touch keyboard after tapping the touch keyboard button in the taskbar.
We fixed an issue where using WIN+H to dictate into a UWP app’s text field wasn’t working.
We fixed an issue resulting in the Japanese IME prediction candidates position being shifted and overlapping with typed text if you set the page zoom level to something other than “100%” in Microsoft Edge.
We’ve adjusted the design of the Japanese curve-flick touch keyboard to display numbers and English letter keys in a smaller font that’s more consistent with the size of the Japanese character keys.
Windows Defender Application Guard (WDAG) Improvements

We have added new status strings to the WDAG splash dialog to provide more information about the startup stages for WDAG. These new strings will be displayed to users when WDAG is starting up and when it’s being resumed from a paused state.
We have also made significant improvements to container launch times by optimizing background preparation of the WDAG container.
We fixed a number of issues that were impacting networking inside the WDAG container as well as a poor user experience when connecting to the WDAG container.
Fixed an issue where the WDAG launch resulted in Error Codes 0x02 / 0x00 or 0x02 / 0c.
Fixed an issue where only part of the WDAG window was being displayed after launch.
Added a registry key to allow users to optimize WDAG launch times during active browsing by not suspending the WDAG container when the WDAG window is closed. You can set the registry key to optimize for performance here: Computer\HKLM\Software\Microsoft\HVSI\, Value name: SuspendOnContainerClosed, REG_DWORD, Value data: 1. Note: Setting this key will result in the container not pausing and the container will not release committed memory.


General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC

We fixed an issue where the battery flyout might have shown unexpected text for the % charged (specifically “%1!s!%2!s!% until fully charged”).
We’ve fixed an issue resulting in certain network setting being lost on upgrade and reverting to default. Specifically, static IP address configuration was reverted to DHCP, and networks marked private were reverted to public.
If you had installed Builds 16226-16237 and had found Storage Spaces to not be working, today’s build expands upon the fix in 16241 to remediate those PCs that had upgraded from the impacted build range and were still in a bad state. Thanks again to the Insiders that have helped us investigate this!

We fixed an issue where if you switched to a new tab and back in Microsoft Edge, Narrator would start reading from the top of the page again, rather than remember where you had been on the page.
We fixed an issue where right-clicking on a folder in File Explorer and saying Scan with Windows Defender wouldn’t work if the folder name contained #.
We fixed a rare issue where the Windows Search Service might get stuck on initialization after upgrade, resulting in File Explorer showing “Working on it…” infinitely when accessing certain folders.

We fixed an issue resulting in certain games such as Wargaming’s World of Tanks, World of Warships, and World of Warplanes appearing to hang/freeze shortly after launch when played on x86 PCs in recent flights.
We fixed an issue where some Insiders were not being offered builds higher than Build 16241.

Known issues for PC

Start, Action Center and notification toasts may at times have a background that is 100% transparent. A fix will be available in later flight – for now, if you encounter this issue, try ending ShellExperienceHost.exe via Task Manager or rebooting to resolve the issue.
We’re investigating reports where Action Center shows it has some number of notifications but when you click to open Action Center, there are no notifications shown.

We’re investigating reports that suggested apps are visible in Start despite the related setting being off. For now, if you encounter this please try toggling Settings > Personalization > Start > “Occasionally show suggestions in Start”.

Connecting to a VPN using a solution downloaded from the Windows Store may result in a system crash.
When installing or updating a Windows Store app, you may see error 80070057. As a workaround, you can get the latest app by uninstalling the older version of the app from your device and reinstall latest version from Store.

So far this build's been really good. Since the last insider build I've had an issue with my multiple display setting ending up stuck between duplicate or extend, depending on which setting it was on before I upgraded (I can still switch between one or the other display, and between the other two I'm stuck on duplicate which is fine since I never use extend), but beyond that no major issues. I like the fluent design on Edge too, I hope they end up putting it on all title bars. And still hope they plan on adding it to the taskbar. Still looks silly having Start and Notification Center having it and the taskbar still being standard.

I missed a few builds so don't know which one exactly fixed this but now Spatial Sound works with any audio format not just 16bit, 48kHz. It was quite a downgrade from 24bit 192kHz I had before.
//Apparently not, it just bugged out on me

I can also confirm that for the first time since RS2 final, you can run the restore image command from DISM successfully again without all the hoop jumping.

Yes, shame Windows on Phones is apparently dead in respect to there will be no new phones and it's in a pure maintenance only cycle. Windows Mobile type platform isn't dead though, they apparently have gone to a modular approach and there is the possibility of new phones running this system instead - and have even greater cross-platform capability with desktop UWP apps. It's all speculation of course, I'm not even sure if Microsoft knows exactly what the future will hold!

So, who's in the skip-ahead branch and who's just on the 'fast ring'. I activated the skip-ahead to RS4 branch when it was available, but thus far it has only applied to store apps. This will supposedly change within the next couple of weeks or so.

There were tentative plans for the new build today, but another bug was found. Maybe tomorrow. If not tomorrow sounds like no new build again this week.

Supposedly September, although having builds that won't install this late in the game doesn't sound too promising

This is a weird one, and I haven't reported it yet but I only see it in Battlefield 1 under DX12 mode with this new build. When I go to Customize my Soldier, the game crashes with a DX12 error. DX11 works fine.

Seems odd if that would crash that specific thing though but who knows what changes Microsoft has done to D3D12 and DXGI for RS3 under the hood really.

RTSS does have a couple of compatibility options though at least in the config file for D3D12 and various situations so those might be helpful, anything more would have to wait until RS3 comes out as a general release in September somewhere assuming there's no further delays though as already said above these types of issues this late is a bit of a problem but hopefully it can be quickly resolved by Microsoft and a new candidate can be promoted and tested for fast-ring release on the insider branch quickly.
