    What’s New in Build 18348
    Emoji 12.0 Update
    With Build Build 18277, Insiders got their first look at the Emoji 12.0 emoji. In early February, the set of emoji to be included with Emoji 12.0 was finalized by Unicode, and with today’s build when you press WIN+(period) or WIN+(semicolon), all of these emoji now have keywords hooked up to make them easy to search for. Try it once you install the build! Keywords include otter, sloth, waffle, ballet shoes, and more.

    If you haven’t tried it already, be sure to also check out our new Kaomoji and Symbols section in the picker – makes it super easy to type things like (☞゚ヮ゚)☞ or em dash!

    General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC
    • We’ve made some adjustments to improve WIN+(period) reliability.
    • We fixed an issue that could result in the Start menu not launching if the GPO to turn off the all apps list in Start was enabled.
    • We fixed an issue where the default Microsoft Word web tile pinned to Start (in the case where Office wasn’t installed) was unexpectedly launching Microsoft Edge in inPrivate mode.
    • We fixed an issue resulting in Microsoft Edge sometimes crashing when editing or tabbing through PDFs.
    • We’ve made a change to improve cloud clipboard (if enabled) sync reliability.
    • We fixed an issue that could result in the lock screen unexpectedly not dismissing until Ctrl+Alt+Del was pressed.
    • We fixed an issue where if high contrast mode was enabled during Windows setup, that state wouldn’t persist first logon.
    • Note: We’re rolling back the new Settings header from 100% to 50% of Insiders on Home and non-domain joined Pro edition PCs. This is so we can have a side by side comparison to help evaluate quality in both on and off state. We’ll let you know when the rollout increases again.
    • We fixed an issue where Narrator continuous reading in Edge did not keep the text cursor at the position where reading was started from.
    • We fixed an issue where Narrator Scan mode down arrow navigation might get stuck when reading in Chrome.
    • In Windows Sandbox, Settings app no longer crashes when you navigate to the Narrator settings.
    Known issues
    • Launching games that use anti-cheat software may trigger a bugcheck (GSOD).
    • Creative X-Fi sound cards are not functioning properly. We are partnering with Creative to resolve this issue.
    • We’re continuing to investigate reported issues in the night light space.
    • Some Realtek SD card readers are not functioning properly. We are investigating the issue.
    • Mouse pointer color might be incorrectly switched to white after signing out and signing back in.
    • If you use third party apps to adjust the color of your screen, we’ve made a fix with this build to address feedback that certain apps were no longer working. We’re continuing to investigate feedback in this space.
    • For display calibration scenarios, monitors may be missing in the built-in Color Management application. As a work around, please use the Settings app to select color profile instead, under the Display Settings page.
    • We’re investigating reports of the Chinese version of multiple games not working.
    • We’re investigating an issue where region settings are being reset on upgrade for some Insiders.

    You can't further improve or enhance what is already at a perfected state. Windows 10 already provide godlike gaming.

    Until they actually address these issues I can't take microsoft seriously anymore. Ridiculous how long these bugs have been in these versions.

    For me the breaking point was when they messed up file associations in 1803 and released 1809 with it too! I wasted too much time troubleshooting that bug, thinking I fucked up somewhere.

    Both are likely an issue with 3rd party software. Creative's drivers are pure crap and anti-cheat s/w often use stuff which shouldn't supposed to be used at all.

    Since everything works like a charm to previous builds, you can never blame the developers of 3rd party apps but the platform itself. It seems you no nothing about programming :) . Microsoft should take precautions with their idiotic directions in their software route. They are an enemy to all devs.

    That's not true. S/w can use functions which aren't permitted to be used in the first place and when such functions are deprecated or forcibly disabled such s/w will stop working - and it's not an issue of the platform, on quite the contrary the platform tend to get better because of this - more secure, more stable, etc.

    Win10 1903 is supposed to have Spectre mitigations with a lower performance impact than currently, so Microsoft might indeed be able to say it now has improved gaming performance:D

    Current Meltdown/Spectre mitigations impact on gaming performance has been rather minimal and improving them will have a minimal gain too.

    That's because you have a newer CPU or have just watched benchmarks with newer CPUs, the older generations, even Haswell, have a notable impact after the Spectre fix was enabled.

    I have Broadwell-E and the only game which had a noticeable impact (which is ~5% performance loss) from Meltdown/Spectre fixes on my PC is Far Cry Primal.

    1809 got them too and apparently they're only for older than Skylake CPU's so I'm kinda underwhelmed about all that.

    They seem to be disabled everywhere so far.

    It's in the Kb article under the intro section that it's meant for older processors. Skylake and newer might not see any gains when they flip the switch.

    "this construct is only safe to use on processors where the RET instruction does not speculate based on the contents of the indirect branch predictor. Those processors are all AMD processors as well as Intel processors codenamed Broadwell and earlier according to Intel’s whitepaper. Retpoline is not applicable to Skylake and later processors from Intel."
