    Hello Windows Insiders! Today, we are releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18262 (19H1) to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring AND those who have opted in to Skip Ahead.

    REMINDER: As is normal with builds early in the development cycle, builds may contain bugs that might be painful for some. If this makes you uncomfortable, you may want to consider switching to the Slow ring. Slow ring builds will continue to be higher quality.

    What’s new in Build 18262
    See DPI Awareness in Task Manager
    Interested to know which of your running apps is DPI Aware? We’ve added a new optional column to the Details tab of Task Manager so you can find out the DPI awareness per process – here’s what it looks like:

    [​IMG]

    To show the column, right-click on any of the column headers in the Details tab, click “Select Columns”, then add “DPI Awareness” to the list. To learn more about DPI Awareness, see here.

    Uninstall additional inbox apps
    In 19H1, we are adding the ability to uninstall the following (preinstalled) Windows 10 inbox apps via the context menu on the Start menu All Apps list:

    • 3D Viewer (previously called Mixed Reality Viewer)
    • Calculator
    • Calendar
    • Groove Music
    • Mail
    • Movies & TV
    • Paint 3D
    • Snip & Sketch
    • Sticky Notes
    • Voice Recorder
    In the Windows 10 October 2018 Update and prior, only the following inbox apps could be uninstalled via the context menu on the Start menu All Apps list:

    • Microsoft Solitaire Collection
    • My Office
    • OneNote
    • Print 3D
    • Skype
    • Tips
    • Weather
    Troubleshooting improvements
    Don’t feel like troubleshooting? We’ve got you covered. In previous releases, if you noticed your PC was having a problem, you would have to find the right troubleshooter and then manually walk through all the different steps to resolve it. We hear your feedback that the time that takes to do can be frustrating – why not just automatically fix issues that you know how to fix and can detect? We agree! If an issue occurs we want to get you back up and running as quickly as possible, so with Build 18262 you’ll find a new recommended troubleshooting setting under Settings > Update & Security > Troubleshoot in Build 18262. This feature uses diagnostic data you send to deliver a tailored set of fixes matching problems we detect on your device and will automatically apply them to your PC.

    We’re still hard at work on this feature so it’s greyed out right now in Settings, but stay tuned for updates in future builds!

    Narrator Improvements
    Narrator Read by Sentence: You can now read next, current and previous sentences in Narrator. Read by sentence is available with the keyboard and with touch. Move by sentence doesn’t yet work for Braille.

    • Caps + Ctrl + Period (.) to Read next sentence
    • Caps + Ctrl + Comma (,) to Read current sentence
    • Caps + Ctrl + M to Read previous sentence
    Sentence is now a new Narrator view and can be reached via Caps + Page Up or Caps + Page Down and then you can navigate with Caps + Left arrow for move by previous sentence and Caps + Right arrow for move by next sentence.

    General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC
    • We fixed an issue resulting in App History being blank in Task Manager in the last flight.
    • We fixed an issue from the previous flight resulting in Task Manager’s icon in the notification area of the taskbar not staying visible while Task Manager was open.
    • We fixed an issue resulting in the upgrade to the previous flight potentially failing with error 0xC1900101. This same issue could have resulted in Office products not launching, services not starting, and/or your credentials not being accepted on the login screen after first upgrading until rebooting.
    • We fixed an issue where Settings would crash in the last few flights if in Ease of Access you clicked “Apply” on Make Text Bigger.
    • We fixed an issue where Settings in the last few flights might crash in the last few flights when clicking Check for updates or applying an updated Active Hours range.
    • We fixed an issue where Notepad wasn’t listed on the Set Defaults by App page in Settings.
    • When adding a new language in Settings, we now offer separate options for installing the language pack and setting the language as the Windows display language. We also show separate options for installing the Speech recognition and Text-to-speech features, when these features are available for the language.
    • We’ve updated the Printers & Scanners page in Settings to now include a link straight to the troubleshooter in case you need it.
    • Some Insiders may notice some changes to clipboard history – more details later.
    • We fixed an issue resulting in File Explorer not launching if invoked from a pinned Start tile when in Tablet Mode.
    • We fixed an issue resulting in the brightness sometimes resetting to 50% after a reboot.
    Known issues
    • We’re investigating an issue resulting in Settings crashing when invoking actions on certain pages. This impacts multiple settings, including various links in the Windows Security section.
    • Some users may have an issue launching Inbox Apps after updating. To resolve this please check the following thread on the Answers forum: https://aka.ms/18252-App-Fix.
    • Switching audio endpoints from the volume flyout in the taskbar doesn’t work – there will be a fix for this in an upcoming flight, we appreciate your patience.
    • Task View fails to show the + button under New Desktop after creating 2 Virtual Desktops.

    Thinking about this a bit, I wonder how this will pan out on new builds were the MB bios already has spectre and meltdown in there.
    Any performance degrade can't be reversed in OS, I think?

    It's my understanding that they've taken inspiration from Google and applied it to the Windows kernel. They should patch it in all supported versions of win10, what good is their support otherwise.

    Google- "With Retpoline, we didn't need to disable speculative execution or other hardware features. Instead, this solution modifies programs to ensure that execution cannot be influenced by an attacker. With Retpoline, we could protect our infrastructure at compile-time, with no source-code modifications. Furthermore, testing this feature, particularly when combined with optimisations such as software branch prediction hints, demonstrated that this protection came with almost no performance loss.” https://www.neowin.net/news/google039s-meltdown-and-spectre-patch-isn039t-slowing-cloud-systems

    right, It sounds like the google software fix, but again, Google can make sure their servers "don't" have any fixes in the bios, consumers are stuck that way.
    I guess we will see once it is out how this works.

    They can but I really doubt they'll want the legal liability for not protecting their infrastructure if anything goes wrong.

    Best Windows 10 feature ever.
    Now give me a solid (which O&O solution is not) and simple option to pull out all the advertise from search/cortona server (just to remember people that cortana is the server indexing service and NOT the narrator) and all the bullcrap for the legit Windows 10 Pro licences I own.
