    Hello Windows Insiders!
    Today we are excited to be releasing a new build from our Development Branch! Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16170 for PC has been released to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring. As we mentioned earlier this week, you won’t see many big noticeable changes or new features in new builds just yet. That’s because right now, we’re focused on making some refinements to OneCore and doing some code refactoring and other engineering work that is necessary to make sure OneCore is optimally structured for teams to start checking in code. This also means more bugs and other issues that could be slightly more painful to live with – so check your Windows Insider Program settings!





    Other changes, improvements, and fixes for PC


    • We fixed the issue causing your PC to fail to install new builds on reboot with the error 8024a112.
    • We have updated the share icon in File Explorer (in the Share tab) to match our new share iconography.
    • We fixed an issue where Cortana Reminders was displayed as a possible share target when Cortana wasn’t enabled.
    • We fixed an issue where Miracast sessions would disconnect a minute or so after the Connect UI was closed if the connection was a first time pairing.
    • We fixed a high-DPI issue when “System (Enhanced)” scaling is enabled so as to now correctly display certain applications that use display graphics accelerated contents.
    • Turning the night light schedule off in Settings now turns night light off immediately.




    Known issues for PC


    • Narrator will not work on this build. If you require Narrator to work, you should move to the Slow ring until we get this bug fixed.
    • Some Insiders have reported seeing this error “Some updates were cancelled. We’ll keep trying in case new updates become available” in Windows Update. See this forum post for more details.
    • Some apps and games may crash due to a misconfiguration of advertising ID that happened in a prior build. Specifically, this issue affects new user accounts that were created on Build 15031. The misconfiguration can continue to persist after upgrading to later builds. The ACL on the registry key incorrectly denies access to the user and you can delete the following registry key to get out of this state: HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AdvertisingInfo.
    • There is a bug where if you need to restart your PC due to a pending update like with the latest Surface firmware updates, the restart reminder dialog doesn’t pop up. You should check Settings > Update & security > Windows Update to see if a restart is required.
    • Certain hardware configurations may cause the broadcast live review window in the Game bar to flash Green while you are Broadcasting. This does not affect the quality of your broadcast and is only visible to the Broadcaster. Make sure you have the latest graphics drivers.
    • Double-clicking on the Windows Defender icon in the notification area does not open Windows Defender. Right-clicking on the icon and choosing open will open Windows Defender.
    • Surface 3 devices fail to update to new builds if a SD memory card is inserted. The updated drivers for the Surface 3 that fix this issue have not yet been published to Windows Update.
    • Pressing F12 to open the Developer Tools in Microsoft Edge while F12 is open and focused may not return focus to the tab F12 is opened against, and vice-versa.
    • The Action Center may get into a state where dismissing one notification unexpectedly dismisses multiple. If this happens, please try rebooting your device.

    Yep, Windows 10 is in constant development and RS3 is planned for release in Autumn though it could get delayed depending on what happens. :)

    This current build doesn't bring that much though. :)

    Microsoft Edge is not properly opening pdf's. When opened you can see portions of the page then disappears and mostly blank pages are shown.

    Can't seem to install Nvidia drivers from the .exe on this build. I get the "Checking system compatibility" on the driver install then it just closes. The Windows GPU updates work and can install through that but they aren't the newest. I updated to this build from the previous version and I had 381.65 already install, the driver worked but I wanted a fresh install so uninstalled but cant install it now.
    Anyone got the same problem?

    After a fresh install of Windows 10 I changed to Fast Builds to grab this.

    All almost went fine... It appeared to download and setup the update to install but now everytime I restart, it doesn't install and Windows Update is stuck on "You need to restart to install the update".. Yet it never installs it..

    Try deleting the contents of softwaredistribution to force it to download the build again, and delete this reg key before letting it attempt the install

    Got the Nvidia driver to install but had to go through device manager. So at least I'm back on 381.65 and not stuck on the Windows update version.

    Yes its just rufus any ISO to usb tool i use you cant click browse it just clicks for a sec then disappears. If I try to put a iso image on the usb stick it fails at format even if i dont have formatted ticked. However their are some strange settings going on under the bonnet/hood . Some settings seem to return to default after a reboot or onedrive and other junk seems to return despite myself running tron script on the lot. Going to wipe the lot tomorrow and start again on a fresh 15063 install.

    Or I just could wait for a fix in another build.

    USB might be a bit borked in 16170 from what I've read.

    Also my Hauppage WinTV-DualHD USB tuner stick does not work in this build, so gone back to Creators for the moment. It's the USB capture process of the software that doesn't work due to the USB bug.

    Bugs are expected, but sometimes there are bugs that you just can't 'live with' :)

    Could just copy the files to it manually, mount the ISO, format stick to FAT32, copy files to stick, iirc you don't need a USB program these days anyway

    Everything needed for the initial boot is there

    No need to use rufus or the like any more, mount iso in windows, copy over to a fat32 formatted usb drive

    However I personally use rufus with the usb formatted to ntfs
