    Hello Windows Insiders!


    Today we are excited to release Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16241 for PC to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring! We are also releasing Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview Build 15230 to Insiders in the Fast ring.
    Upcoming Bug Bash

    We’re really excited to do our 2nd (and final) Bug Bash for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update! The Bug Bash will start at 12am (Pacific Time) on Friday July 14th and will run a full week ending at 11:59 pm (Pacific Time) on Sunday July 23rd. This build will be our Bug Bash build. As usual, we will be publishing new quests so be sure to open Feedback Hub and complete as many quests as you can!
    And we’ll also be doing Mixer webcasts at the following dates and times for the Bug Bash:

    • Tuesday July 18th: 1:30pm – 3:00pm (Pacific Time)
    • Friday July 21st: 10:00am – 11:30am (Pacific Time)


    What’s New in Build 16241 For PC

    Windows Shell Improvements:

    Recover your pin and password from the lock screen: Self Service solutions empower end users, unburden helpdesk/IT admins, and save organizations money. Cloud Self Service Password Reset (Cloud SSPR) has been a really popular Azure AD Premium (AADP) feature and now we want to take this great capability one step further – Windows Integration. If you’re using an AADP or MSA account and you find yourself stuck at the login screen, you can now reset your password and PIN straight from here. Just click the “Reset password” (for password) / ”I forgot my PIN” (for PIN) link and you’ll be prompted to go through the AAD or MSA flow to reset it. Once reset, you’ll be returned to the login screen where you can login with your newly minted credentials.


    Refining Acrylic Material: We’ve heard your feedback, and in response in today’s build you’ll notice we’ve softened the noise layer of Acrylic Material. Below you’ll find a side by side comparison of how it was and how it is now. This will take effect in any XAML based UI and apps where Acrylic Material can be seen which targets Build 16241+.

    PC Gaming Improvements:


    • We fixed an issue preventing profile cards in the Xbox Live in-game experience from working.
    • We also fixed an issue causing Game bar to crash while broadcasting.
    Task Manager Improvements:

    We have made some design changes to the GPU section of Performance tab:


    [​IMG]



    • The GPU name is now shown on the left-hand side of the Performance tab for each GPU.
    • We now default to the multi-engine view, which shows performance monitors for the four most active GPU engines. Typically you’ll see charts for the 3D, Copy, Video Encode and Video Decode engines. Right-click on the chart to switch back to the single-engine view.
    • There is now a total GPU memory text counter next to the dedicated and shared text counters at the bottom of the Performance tab.
    • The Direct X version now also contains the highest supported DX feature level.


    We have improved how Microsoft Edge’s processes are labeled in Task Manager: In Build 16226, we introduced grouping an app’s processes together in Task Manager. For Microsoft Edge, tab processes were labeled in Task Manager with their web page title.


    [​IMG]


    We’ve heard your feedback that other Microsoft Edge processes could use better labels. Starting in Build 16241, additional processes (such as the Chakra JIT Compiler, UI Service, and Manager process) are now labeled in Task Manager. We’ll continue to revise these labels based on feedback.


    Mixed Reality Improvements:


    • Added support for Mixed Reality Motion Controllers over USB (Wireless/Bluetooth support to come soon!)
    • Connection reliability improvements (Code 43 errors in Device Manager).
    • We’ve updated the Mixed Reality Portal icon.
    • We’ve updated teleportation experience to make this more intuitive and direct.
    • We have also improved stability of the headset during your Mixed Reality session.
    • We have fixed the issue where the Hill on the side of the cliff house flickers.
    • We have also fixed where the audio of HoloTour can now turn off promptly when switching between apps and cliff house.
    • we have also fixed speech commands to work during exclusive app sessions.
    • We have also improved the experience where we can now load the Environment effectively with no black screen during startup.
    • Mixed Reality Portal now explicitly informs users that headsets require USB 3.0.
    • Improved support for ASMedia and other 3rd party USB controllers
    • 4K 360 Video streaming has also been improved in this build.
    • 3Glasses improvements: we have fixed various issues with 3Glasses headset and controller to help jumpstart your development.
    • Preset holograms in the Cliff House now show up in the right order.
    • We have also fixed the issue where black screen is shown when the environment is loading.
    • We have fixed the headset’s sleep cycle to correct according to user activities.
    • We have also fixed the issue to enable users to share the Mixed Reality captures to Facebook.
    For more details, please go to Mixed Reality Flight Notes


    Delivery Optimization Improvements:

    Delivery Optimization has been synonymous with “Peer-to-peer” but few people are aware that it is also used as the main downloader for content downloaded from Windows Update and Windows Store. Delivery Optimization, even without P2P, is what makes downloads from Windows Store much faster as well as makes downloads of Quality and Feature updates far more reliable. In line with this, the main settings page – now titled “Delivery Optimization” – indicates that while you can enable or disable the P2P functionality, Delivery Optimization is still used when downloading updates and apps directly from Microsoft’s content servers. You can go to this page via Settings > Update & security > Windows Update under “Advanced options” and then “Delivery Optimization.
    You may notice two new links under the Delivery Optimization settings page that provide you with some new features for more control and visibility:


    Delivery Optimization Advanced Options: Here you can configure various Download and Upload settings.


    [​IMG]


    Delivery Optimization continuously measures your available bandwidth during a download and dynamically adjusts the amount of bandwidth used in background downloads to ensure these downloads won’t interrupt your use of your device. However, Delivery Optimization may not be aware of download activity that takes place on other devices in your household. If you have limited connectivity and would like to minimize the impact you can now use the Download settings to throttle your download speed for background downloads.


    If you own multiple devices we encourage you to allow downloads from other PCs on your local network to reduce the amount of bandwidth used by your devices that are downloading the same updates.
    In addition, if you enable the option to download from other PCs on the Internet, you may want to restrict the use of your upload bandwidth by throttling the upload speed or the total amount of bytes sent to other devices by enabling a Monthly upload limit.


    Activity Monitor: Here you can see the overall bandwidth used in downloads of OS Updates including Feature and Quality updates as well as Store App downloads and updates on your device. You will also be able to see exactly the amount of data coming from other PCs on your local network or other PC on the Internet based on your settings.


    [​IMG]


    Note that the data reflects the bandwidth used since the first day of the month.


    Windows Console & Bash on Windows:

    Canonical’s Ubuntu Linux Distro is now available in the Windows Store and can be downloaded and installed on any Windows 10 Insider Preview build >= Build 16215! For more – check out this blog post from Rich Turner.

    General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC


    • The Pin to Taskbar option is now grayed out for InPrivate sessions in Microsoft Edge. Websites pinned to the taskbar from an InPrivate session on a previous build will now open in a regular (non-InPrivate) Microsoft Edge session.
    • We fixed an issue where Windows Defender Security Center showing an ‘Unexpected’ state depending on the implementation of the 3rd party firewall product.
    • We fixed an issue where the battery status on certain laptops wasn’t updating while the device is unplugged. Thanks everyone who shared logs to help narrow this down.
    • We fixed an issue from the last flight where apps that called into the firewall, such as Microsoft Edge and other apps using networking, might become unresponsive until you rebooted.
    • We fixed an issue from the last flight resulting in the Surface Dial UI not appearing.
    • We fixed an issue when in Recovery Settings if you chose “Reset This PC” > “Keep My files” the operation would fail at 1% and will revert with no changes to the system.
    • We fixed an issue resulting in an increase in UWP app reliability issues, for example in Microsoft Edge and Photos, in recent flights.
    • If you were still seeing Storage Spaces issues in 16237, please try again in 16241 and let us know if the issues have been resolved. We’ve made an adjustment to our previous fix.
    • We fixed an issue resulting in Windows Media Player displaying a class registered error when attempting to play music files in recent flights.
    • We fixed an issue where the touch keyboard wasn’t automatically displaying upper case keys at the beginning of sentences.
    • We fixed an issue where Storage Settings might show the size of C: as double the actual size.


    Known issues for PC


    • IMAP email accounts such as Gmail, Yahoo, and Aol may not sync in the Mail app in this build.
    • Trying to use the dictation hotkey (WIN + H) in UWP apps won’t work – you’ll see the UI come up and immediately dismiss. If you’d still like to use dictation, the microphone in the touch keyboard will work. You can right-click the Taskbar for an option to show the touch keyboard button if it’s not already visible.
    • We’re investigating your reports that the Copy Link option displayed in Microsoft Edge when you right-click a hyperlink isn’t working in recent builds.
    • There is an issue with PC Games using the Origin overlay. Use of overlay may cause game movement to lock up.
    • We’re investigating your reports that after upgrading to the latest Insider Preview builds, some network settings are lost and revert to default settings. Static IP address configuration is reverted to DHCP. Networks which were marked as private are reverted to public. After the upgrade you will need to manually readjust your network settings back to your preferred settings.
    • If you have display scaling higher than 100%, you may encounter a bug where the hit targeting is offset when interacting with various parts of the shell. This is particularly noticeable in Action Center, where it might appear that nothing in Action Center can be cleared, but can also happen with the taskbar Jump lists and My People. If this happens, go to Settings > System > Display and change the size of text, apps, and other items to something else. Once you’ve done that, put it back to how you like it and issue should be resolved.
    • Some apps like Tweetium may not render the UI correctly and be difficult to use.
    • Windows Defender Security Center cannot be used to configure and list items for Controlled folder access, Threat History and Exclusions due to a crash in the UI. This is not affecting the real-time protection capabilities and will be fixed in the next build.

    It got stuck for me twice, wiped the SoftwareDistribution folder and it worked.

    Really good build. 16237 had a sluggish feeling, and Windows animations could be slow, almost like how the OS acts with only a basic display driver installed. All that gone in this build. Other accounts in Mail are working again too.

    Uninstall any 3rd party software that might be interfering with it, Samsung Magician was mentioned above, remove any AV / Security software etc etc

    Some ISOs here you could try too

    should fix it cause deleting those windows update files causes some issues that need fixing :)

    What i did:

    Uninstalled Spybot Anti-Beacon, Samsung magician, Deleted the ":\Windows\SoftwareDistribution" and then installed Windows update Troubleshooter https://aka.ms/wudiag . But it updated fine after that!

    Hello you all again, I haven't been doing any testing lately ever since I been doing alot of benchmarks on the rs2 rtm.

    How is the rs3 coming along compared to the rs2 rtm? I know rs3 rtm is little ways off, but just wondering how is it now? I remember the first several sets of rs3 wern't all that great, is it any better now? Curious, thanks.

    I actually got a GSOD yesterday....So i uninstalled my AMD drivers then ddu and reinstalled. Part of me suspects it has something to do with steady video or fluid motion possibly. I dont recall ever getting a crash if leaving those settings alone. Seems like i always had chrome open when i got a crash with a video recently played. I have NEVER had a crash with gaming or stress tests and for now im just going to not use the video enhancements built into Radeon settings just to be on the safe side. I absolutely NEVER had crashes with my older AMD card so i have to think its related some how.

    Samsung magician Rapid mode is Non- functional with these current insider builds and Startisback wont work either and so far thats about it for me.

    LOL, startisback won't work?? LOL, that's enough to kinda push me back atm, also, even the latest version of classicshell, acts up on the rs2 rtm build I am using and will defin't act up the builds you are all testing, sucker hasn't been updated since last what july, Startisback with these builds = VERY GOOD, with classicshell with these builds = You will have tons of problems, older builds went excellent, be very careful.

    Have to say..been using this one for a week and its not half bad. I did notice a slow boot up yesterday as if it was getting ready to install another update, but it never did and fired up like normal. (except time wise)....Since start is back is only half functional and displays not comparable every time it loads....Im just using the crappy win 10 start with all the store apps removed
