    Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14371 for PC
    By Dona Sarkar / Software Engineer, Windows and Devices Group



    Hey Windows Insiders!

    Time to show our PCs some love. We think you’ll really like this update. Today we’re releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14371 to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring.

    Here’s what’s new in Build 14371
    Activation Improvements: We’ve received feedback from Windows Insiders who have run into activation issues on Genuine Windows devices after making changes to device hardware such as replacing a hard drive or motherboard. As part of the Windows 10 Anniversary Update and starting with this Insider Preview build, we’re introducing the Activation Troubleshooter that will help you address most commonly encountered activation issues on Genuine Windows devices including those caused by hardware changes. For example – if your device has a digital license (formerly called “digital entitlement”) for Windows 10 Pro from a previously installed activated Windows 10 build but you accidentally re-installed Windows 10 Home on such a device, the troubleshooter will automatically guide you through upgrading to Windows 10 Pro and activate Windows. You can launch the troubleshooter by going to Settings > Update & security > Activation and select Troubleshoot. Remember, Windows 10 Insider Preview builds are intended to be installed on Genuine Windows devices.

    Based on Insider feedback, we are also introducing the ability to link your Microsoft account (MSA) to the activation digital license with this Insider Preview build. If you already used an MSA to log in to your activated Windows 10 Home or Pro device, your MSA will be automatically linked. You can use this MSA linked digital license to re-activate your Genuine Windows 10 device by running the Activation troubleshooter, if you run into Activation issues caused by hardware changes.

    Go to the Feedback Hub for additional details about this feature.

    Other improvements and fixes for PC
    • We have made a couple of key fixes for accessibility. We fixed the issue causing Narrator to not launch when you toggle switch to “on” via Settings app > Ease of access > Narrator. We also fixed an issue where Narrator spoke at an unexpectedly accelerated rate.
    • We improved learning speed for some slow cases on Japanese IME conversion, and prediction candidate quality. We fixed a short hang issue in Japanese IME which had been there since the Windows 10 November Update.
    • We improved the file download experience in Microsoft Edge. Now if you click on a download link from outside of Microsoft Edge that quickly opens and closes a tab, we will open the Download Hub so it is more apparent that a download has begun and succeeded. We also fixed an issue where moving the caret to beyond the visible end of the textbox when editing the name of a favorite in the Favorites Bar would result in keyboard focus moving to the next favorite. And we also fixed an issue where enter might not work to navigate to a URL if you began typing in the address bar very shortly after opening a new tab.
    • Going forward from Build 14371, the 3D Display setting state will be preserved across build updates.
    • We fixed an issue resulting in MPEG-2 videos showing the wrong duration in the Movies and TV app.
    • We fixed an issue where “Scan options” text in Windows Defender would be clipped when high DPI (text scaling) was increased. We also fixed an issue where the offline scan event wasn’t correctly formatted, and would show an exposed parameter (%1) in the Event Logs. We also fixed an issue resulting in the permissions dialog for a new extension possibly appearing under the Microsoft Edge favorites bar.
    • We fixed an issue where using the OneNote Web Clipper extension for Microsoft Edge on certain sites might result in an error saying “Please allow third party cookies in your browser”.
    • We fixed an issue where the Action Center icon was clipped by the “Show Desktop” icon at 225% DPI. We also improved the resolution of the sound and network icons when using a non-standard DPI setting.
    • We added a small animation to Action Center for when notifications are deleted by the platform or dynamically repositioned, and generally improved Action Center reliability.
    • We fixed an issue resulting in the Clock and Calendar flyout possibly showing a very old appointment when looking at today’s events.
    • We fixed an issue where certain keys in the Calculator app might stop working after switching between OCT and HEX mode. We also fixed an issue where hitting Enter in the calculator could result in the menu opening rather than calculating the current result.
    • We fixed an issue that could result in the VPN Settings page freezing after pressing Connect. We also fixed an issue where VPN might attempt to automatically connect over metered networks, despite “Allow VPN over metered connection” being turned off.
    • We fixed an issue where the icon for Settings was missing from the Background apps and Data usage settings pages. We also fixed an issue where content in the Windows Insider Program settings page might be truncated.
    • We fixed an issue where File Explorer would show two copies of any picture or screenshot taken on a phone while that phone was connected to the PC, despite only one file actually existing on the phone.
    • We fixed an issue where going between the All apps list and the tile grid of Start in Tablet mode could have a glitchy animation, or not have an animation at all.
    • We fixed an issue where you might see duplicate “The VPN connection needs your sign-in info.” notifications saved in the Action Center, when only one needed to be displayed.
    • We fixed an issue resulting in certain PDFs failed to print.
    • We fixed an issue where a focus box was sometimes visible when launching the Start menu, resulting in type to search not working.
    Known issues for PC
    • Clicking on networks or VPN connections in the network flyout on the taskbar doesn’t launch the network settings page like it should.
    We are still looking at all of the Quest & Feedback Hub data from the bug bash and we’re so impressed with how incredibly creative all of you are in your usage. We feel so fortunate to have you as part of our team. Let’s keep building Windows together.

    Keep hustling. We will too.

    Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14372 for PC and Mobile
    By Dona Sarkar / Software Engineer, Windows and Devices Group



    Hey Windows Insiders!

    First off – I want to say that you were amazing during last week’s Bug Bash. You completed ~71K Quests and filed 81,217 pieces of feedback and up-votes. Windows Insiders from all over the world participated including strong participation from China, India, and Brazil which gave us great insight into what we can expect in our international markets. We even saw feedback from Insiders in far-away places like Botswana, Turkmenistan, Gambia, Seychelles, Togo, Mali, Liberia, or Greenland. Together, we are making a product that people will love all over the world. THANK YOU!

    With your help, we’re on our way to make the Windows 10 Anniversary Update awesome for ALL of our customers this summer. The team is busily working on triaging and investigating the top bugs that you sent in. The hustle is pretty real around Redmond right now. As they check in fixes for these bugs into builds, its important for us to get those builds out to you as soon as we can to validate those fixes. So here we are today with another new build for you! We are releasing Build 14372 for both PC and Mobile to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring.

    This build is just one build newer than the last one but has a handful of fixes to improvement overall performance and reliability.

    The Microsoft Edge Team also has a new extension to let you know about!

    Evernote Web Clipper for Microsoft Edge: Clip the web pages you want to keep. Save them in Evernote and easily find them on any device. Visit our extensions page at the Microsoft Edge Dev website to learn more and try it out for yourself.

    Known issues for PC
    • Clicking on networks or VPN connections in the network flyout on the taskbar doesn’t launch the network settings page like it should.
    • There are a few known issues with the Evernote Web Clipper extension for Microsoft Edge. The Evernote Web Clipper might not load on certain websites and there is no thumbnail image when clipping bookmarks. There are also various visual issues.
    • When you enable Developer Mode in this build, you will receive an error message because the necessary package needs from Windows Update isn’t being published appropriately. This will prevent you from using Device Portal. We’re working to get this fixed as soon as possible. You can still F5 deploy apps from Visual Studio to your PC.
    Known issues for Mobile
    • We have changed the backup format for Windows 10 Mobile devices to reduce the size of the backup stored in OneDrive. As a result, if you do a backup on a device running the latest Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview builds and move back to the released version of Windows 10 Mobile (Build 10586) and restore from your backup – your Start screen layout won’t restore and remain the default Start layout. Your previous backup also gets overwritten. If you need to go back to Build 10586 temporarily, once you are on Build 10586 you should disable backup so it doesn’t overwrite the good backup from Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview builds.
    • We’ve heard you and we are investigating decreases in battery life on older devices such as the Lumia 830, 930, and 1520 (devices with SoC 8974 chipsets).
    • We’re investigating Wi-Fi disconnect issues – if you are experiencing an issue with your Wi-Fi disconnecting, please see this forum post and make sure to upvote Wi-Fi disconnecting issues in the Feedback Hub.
    Keep hustling,
    Dona

    Hello my Windows Insiders!

    This week we have been hosting a Continuum App Contest in Redmond and it’s been really cool to see the awesome apps our dev Insiders have created. I installed the finalists’ apps and love how useful they are to my day-to-day—on both PC AND Phone. You all should check them out, there are some that are quite—Insider-y


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    You can get a Perfect Workout—anywhere! The graphics & animations on this app are simply wow and failure-proof.

    You can keep track of what’s going on with world currencies (along with a TON of other functionality) with Calc Pro (coming soon to HoloLens as well!).

    I have my personal blog on WordPress, so I really loved WP for Windows (which has gorgeous magazine style layouts and a read-out-loud feature!).

    EZPodder is perfect for me to consume TED Radio & my other fave podcasts from anywhere (the presentation also came with a free Design for non-Designers lesson along with MVVN design patterns example, which was awesome for a nerd like me!).

    And of course, what is life without a hilarious Meme Generator Suite (and there are a TON of templates especially for you, my creative Windows Insiders!).

    We in Redmond are about to take off for the long weekend to celebrate the 4th of July weekend, BUT before then we wanted to give you what we’ve been working on. Today we are releasing Build 14379 for both PC and Mobile to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring with another batch of bug fixes based on feedback:

    Improvements and fixes for PC
    • We fixed an issue where the size of the Credential UI might not be big enough to display the contents on a PC with High DPI.
    • We fixed an issue where Action Center might crash after dismissing a large number of notifications.
    • We fixed an issue where Centennial app launches from Start or Cortana wouldn’t count towards those apps bubbling up in Start’s “Most used” list.
    • We fixed an issue where no note would have keyboard focus after minimizing then reopening the Sticky Notes app.
    Improvements and fixes for Mobile
    • We fixed an issue that could result in a stray focus rectangle becoming visible in certain apps, such as Groove or Cortana, after bringing up the keyboard.
    • We fixed an issue where the aspect ratio of images on live tile wasn’t preserved if they need to be shrunk, leading to them appearing stretched.
    Known issues for PC
    • Using Continuum from your phone on your PC via the Connect app will not work. This should be fixed in the next build.
    Known issues for Mobile
    • You can open PDFs in Microsoft Edge but won’t be able to use touch to interact with the PDF (such as scrolling, pan or zoom). When you try to use touch to interact with a PDF, it will constantly reload the PDF.
    • We’ve heard you and we are investigating decreases in battery life on older devices such as the Lumia 830, 930, and 1520.
    • We’re also investigating Wi-Fi disconnect issues – if you are experiencing an issue with your Wi-Fi disconnecting, please see this forum post and make sure to upvote Wi-Fi disconnecting issues in the Feedback Hub.
    • REMINDER: We have changed the backup format for Windows 10 Mobile devices to reduce the size of the backup stored in OneDrive. As a result, if you do a backup on a device running the latest Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview builds and move back to the released version of Windows 10 Mobile (Build 10586) and restore from your backup – your Start screen layout won’t restore and remain the default Start layout. Your previous backup also gets overwritten. If you need to go back to Build 10586 temporarily, once you are on Build 10586 you should disable backup so it doesn’t overwrite the good backup from Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview builds.
    Check out some of those sweet apps for Phone and PC, play with the build. have a fantastic weekend and as always, keep hustling,

    Build 14383 was released today. Just downloaded it. Not sure how stable or good it is. One thing different is there are no watermarks down in the right hand corner.

    Hello my Windows Insiders!

    We wanted to share with you the winner of the Continuum app contest from last week. It was a super hard decision, but we went with Vuong Chung from Vietnam. His app, Perfect Workout, can be found here. You can check out the finalists’ apps from my blog here. We were really happy to have heavy involvement from our engineering team for coaching and judging as well as sponsorship and support from HP for this event. Vuong took home quite a haul for his work. He received a Lumia 950, a Continuum Display Dock, an Office 365 Subscription, a copy of Visual Studio Pro, an HP Elite XP3 phone, $1,000 Advertising Credit on the Microsoft Store and my fave: A Surface Book.

    Congrats to Vuong. We love his app!

    In build news: today we are releasing Build 14383 for both PC and Mobile to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring. On PC, you will notice a few things are different with this build. For example, the desktop watermark is now gone. This is because we’re beginning to check in final code in preparation for releasing the Windows 10 Anniversary Update to customers on August 2nd. But we’re not finished yet and will have more builds to release to Windows Insiders between now and then. Remember you guys play a big role in helping us decide which are the final *final* bits that we ship globally.

    Improvements and fixes for PC
    • The link to “Get more extensions from the Store” under the Extensions pane in Microsoft Edge now takes you directly to the Store to download available extensions.
    • We have changed the keyboard shortcut to invoke Cortana in listening mode to Win + Shift + C based on feedback from Insiders experiencing a large number of unintended activations of Cortana while in listening mode. Speaking “Hey Cortana”, when enabled in Cortana Settings, continues to invoke Cortana in listening mode as it always has.
    • Going forward from this build, updates to the Quick Action area of Action Center will be preserved across upgrades.
    • We fixed an issue where disconnecting the Surface Book from an external monitor set as primary might result in the Surface Book screen showing in portrait rather than landscape until having detached and reattached the screen.
    • We fixed an issue where the Settings app was showing media controls in the taskbar preview window.
    • We fixed an issue where dragging the file comparison or manage library dialogs between two monitors with different DPIs would result in the dialog content no longer displaying correctly
    • We fixed an issue where the checkmark used to indicate a selected state in app bar toggle buttons wasn’t visible in high contrast, for example in the Photos menu under “…”.
    • We fixed an issue where connecting to a PC using Remote Desktop when a maximized window is immediately behind the Remote Desktop dialog would result in the subsequent the Credential UI window being displayed behind the maximized window.
    • We fixed an issue where, with certain monitor configurations, Explorer.exe would hang after a tooltip is displaying.
    • We fixed an issue resulting in certain Bluetooth mice, such as the Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse, sometimes accelerating erratically when moving the cursor across the screen.
    • We fixed an issue where on certain webpages in Microsoft Edge when Narrator was in Scan mode and going line by line through a list of hyperlinks, Narrator wouldn’t announce the fact that these were hyperlinks.
    • We fixed an issue with certain websites potentially causing a memory leak and becoming unresponsive in Microsoft Edge when the LastPass extension had been enabled.
    Improvements and fixes for Mobile
    • We have improved battery performance for those who tend to quickly turn the screen on and off in order to look at the Lock screen.
    • We fixed an issue in Microsoft Edge where zooming in and out of embedded maps could sometimes result in the map jumping to an unexpected location.
    • We fixed an issue resulting in volume mute not working on certain devices, such as the Lumia 640, when playing YouTube videos that use the OPUS audio codec.
    • We fixed an issue where if you are connected to a car via Bluetooth that supports it, tapping “End Call” on the car’s console wouldn’t work while an incoming text was being announced.
    • We fixed an issue resulting in not being about to make Store purchases using mobile operator billing when using an Orange SIM.
    • We fixed an issue resulting in Groove sometimes unexpectedly pausing music after music has manually been paused and resumed.
    • We fixed an issue resulting in the keyboard sometimes outputting @ and € instead of “a” and “e” for certain languages in Windows Phone 8.1 apps.
    • We fixed an issue resulting in many Windows Phone 8.1 games seeming to play in slow motion on certain devices, such as the Lumia 535.
    • We fixed an issue where notifications received while the screen was off didn’t take into consideration the proximity sensor, resulting in the screen turning on to display the notification while in pockets, potentially leading to accidental screen presses.
    • We fixed an issue where Visual Voicemail setup wouldn’t appear after hard resetting the device.
    • We fixed an issue resulting in tiles pinned from within apps sometimes being blank and not falling back to show the app name within the tile. Also fixed an issue where “SIM 2” title was missing from pinned Messaging and Phone tiles for the second SIM.
    • We fixed an issue resulting in incorrect Start screen scaling after switching from Continuum/Extended Desktop to Mirrored/Duplicated screen on devices with a non-default DPI.
    • We fixed an issue resulting in there sometimes being a delay when showing the missed call count on the Phone app Live tile.
    Known issues for PC
    • If you are seeing a notification pop-up once a day that started on 7/1 saying that your Windows evaluation copy expires on 7/15/2016, don’t worry – this is a superfluous dialog and your OS won’t expire. The dialog will also go away soon.
    • A recent fix went into place for the Hyper-V firmware that will that affect the ability to boot Windows Server 2016 Tech Preview 5 VMs with Secure Boot enabled. A fix for TP5 builds has been developed however, due to release schedules, the Insider Preview build changes will be released before the TP5 fix is released. During that time, if you try to boot a new TP5 VM with Secure Boot enabled, it will fail. The workaround is to disable Secure Boot during this period.
    Known issues for Mobile
    • Voice Recorder does not show up consistently as an option for Call Recording.
    • You can open PDFs in Microsoft Edge but won’t be able to use touch to interact with the PDF (such as scrolling, pan or zoom). When you try to use touch to interact with a PDF, it will constantly reload the PDF.
    • REMINDER: We have changed the backup format for Windows 10 Mobile devices to reduce the size of the backup stored in OneDrive. As a result, if you do a backup on a device running the latest Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview builds and move back to the released version of Windows 10 Mobile (Build 10586) and restore from your backup – your Start screen layout won’t restore and remain the default Start layout. Your previous backup also gets overwritten. If you need to go back to Build 10586 temporarily, once you are on Build 10586 you should disable backup so it doesn’t overwrite the good backup from Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview builds.
    It’s feeling like ship season around here and we can’t wait to see what you think of this build. Keep hustling,
    Dona <3

    New build released to fast ring on the 9th:

    JULY 9, 2016 3:01 PM
    Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14385 for PC and Mobile
    By Dona Sarkar / Software Engineer, Windows and Devices Group


    Hello my Windows Insiders!

    Surprise! Today we are releasing Build 14385 for both PC and Mobile to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring. But wait – it’s the weekend!? We’re churning out builds like crazy and this one has a few hundred bug fixes we wanted to get out to Insiders as quickly as possible to help validate scenarios to make sure we are together building the best possible product.

    Improvements and fixes for PC
    • You should no longer see a notification pop-up once a day saying that your Windows evaluation copy expires on 7/15/2016. I know this has caused a lot of you some angst so thank you for being patient.
    • We have improved battery life for Surface devices.
    • We fixed an issue resulting in Spotify sometimes crashing while playing music.
    • We fixed an issue resulting in the Google Chrome window being clipped on the top when maximized.
    • We fixed an issue with Mobile Hotspot that could result the host device bug-checking (bluescreen) and rebooting if it was sharing on a 5GHz band and the connected device browsed to certain websites.
    • We fixed an issue where the pin prompt shown when connecting to certain VPNs would display behind the other open windows.
    • We fixed an issue resulting in LastPass and AdBlock extensions for Microsoft Edge not showing the expected context menu items or status information in subsequently opened Edge windows. We also fixed an issue where the current tab in Edge might hang after exiting Web Notes.
    • Projecting to a PC auto-discoverability is off by default. To have your PC beacon so it can be discovered and you can project to it through the Connect quick action from a Continuum enabled phone or another PC, go to Settings > System > Projecting to this PC and set “Windows PCs and phones can project to this PC when you say it’s OK” to “Available everywhere” or “Available everywhere on secure networks”. You can also set other settings on this page to your preference.
    Improvements and fixes for Mobile
    • You can open PDFs in Microsoft Edge and use touch to interact with the PDF (such as scrolling, pan or zoom) again without it constantly reloading the PDF.
    • We have improved battery life for older devices, such as the Lumia 830, 930, and 1520.
    • We fixed an issue where setting the SIM name on a dual SIM phone would sometimes fail.
    Known issues for PC
    • A recent fix went into place for the Hyper-V firmware that will that affect the ability to boot Windows Server 2016 Tech Preview 5 VMs with Secure Boot enabled. A fix for TP5 builds has been developed however, due to release schedules, the Insider Preview build changes will be released before the TP5 fix is released. During that time, if you try to boot a new TP5 VM with Secure Boot enabled, it will fail. The workaround is to disable Secure Boot during this period.
    • After you install this build on a PC using a non-EN-US language, you may get error code 0x80004005 when enabling Developer Mode on the “For Developers” Settings Page. Even after seeing this error message, your machine is in developer mode and you should still be able to use Visual Studio to develop Universal Windows Applications. In most cases, this error indicates that extra components required by the operating system to enable additional debugging features in Visual Studio or the Windows Device Portal could not be installed automatically. To fix this:
      #1. Go to Settings > System.
      #2. Click on “Apps & features”
      #3. Choose “Manage Optional features”
      #4. Press the button “Add a feature”
      #5. Select the package for Windows Developer Mode
      #6. Click “Install”
      #7. Reboot your PC
      #8. Launch Command Prompt as Administrator
      #9. Run: sc config debugregsvc start=auto

      Finally, return to the “For Developers” Settings page. You will still see the error code, 0x80004005 but you should now be able to enable Windows Device Portal and the Device Discovery features.
    Known issues for Mobile
    • Voice Recorder does not show up consistently as an option for Call Recording. We heard your feedback and are working actively on this.
    • The keyboard doesn’t show up consistently for InPrivate mode on Microsoft Edge. We’re working on this. A workaround is to click on the Microsoft privacy statement hyperlink on that page and then the keyboard works in the search/address bar. We’re working on fixing this.
    • REMINDER: We have changed the backup format for Windows 10 Mobile devices to reduce the size of the backup stored in OneDrive. As a result, if you do a backup on a device running the latest Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview builds and move back to the released version of Windows 10 Mobile (Build 10586) and restore from your backup – your Start screen layout won’t restore and remain the default Start layout. Your previous backup also gets overwritten. If you need to go back to Build 10586 temporarily, once you are on Build 10586 you should disable backup so it doesn’t overwrite the good backup from Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview builds.
    We’re getting down to the wire on the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, team. Please install the build and send us your feedback. I can’t tell you how much I love being on the same team as you.

    Thank you for your dedication and keep hustling,
    Dona <3

    Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14388 for PC and Mobile
    By Dona Sarkar / Software Engineer, Windows and Devices Group

    Hello my Windows Insiders!

    I’m at the Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) this week to meet partners and customers to understand the needs of their businesses and brands. Yesterday I gave a talk about what I have learned about my first 41 days about being the Insider lead and what I envision for the future of the program. Nothing should be a surprise for you, my Insiders. We are all about education and empowerment to transform every industry with our tech skills in the next decade. The audience had quite a few questions about how to engage their own customers in different industries (autos, medical, construction) and I learned quite a bit about how these industries differ from tech. It got me thinking about how to help these leaders build fans-as-part-of-product programs like ours. You can find the audio and slides from the talk here.

    In build news, today we are releasing Build 14388 for both PC and Mobile to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring. This build has 44 new fixes in it including a bunch of fixes to improvement reliability and battery life and improvements to accessibility. A few of the most notable fixes are listed below.

    Improvements and fixes for PC
    • We have updated the Store to version 11606.1001.39 with bug fixes.
    • We fixed an issue where Narrator keyboard shortcuts would not work after locking your PC and then logging back in and going to your desktop.
    • We fixed an issue where Narrator would not read the date and time under Settings > Time & language > Date & time.
    • We fixed a TPM driver crash that could result in the device bug-checking (bluescreen) and rebooting.
    Improvements and fixes for Mobile
    • We have updated the Store to version 11606.1001.39 with bug fixes.
    • We fixed the issue causing the keyboard to not show up consistently for InPrivate mode on Microsoft Edge.
    • We fixed an issue that could result in an app getting into a state after being suspended where it would be unable to launch until rebooting the device.
    Known issues for PC
    • A recent fix went into place for the Hyper-V firmware that will that affect the ability to boot Windows Server 2016 Tech Preview 5 VMs with Secure Boot enabled. A fix for TP5 builds has been developed however, due to release schedules, the Insider Preview build changes will be released before the TP5 fix is released. During that time, if you try to boot a new TP5 VM with Secure Boot enabled, it will fail. The workaround is to disable Secure Boot during this period.
    • After you install this build on a PC using a non-EN-US language, you may get error code 0x80004005 when enabling Developer Mode on the “For Developers” Settings Page. Even after seeing this error message, your machine is in developer mode and you should still be able to use Visual Studio to develop Universal Windows Applications. In most cases, this error indicates that extra components required by the operating system to enable additional debugging features in Visual Studio or the Windows Device Portal could not be installed automatically.
    To fix this:

    #1. Go to Settings > System.
    #2. Click on “Apps & features”
    #3. Choose “Manage Optional features”
    #4. Press the button “Add a feature”
    #5. Select the package for Windows Developer Mode
    #6. Click “Install”
    #7. Reboot your PC
    #8. Launch Command Prompt as Administrator
    #9. Run: sc config debugregsvc start=auto

    Finally, return to the “For Developers” Settings page. You will still see the error code, 0x80004005 but you should now be able to enable Windows Device Portal and the Device Discovery features.

    Known issues for Mobile
    • Voice Recorder does not show up consistently as an option for Call Recording. We heard your feedback and plan to release a Voice Recorder app update via the Store soon that has the fix for this issue.
    • Wallet users are prompted for a PIN twice when using tap to pay from a locked phone. You can enter their PIN twice and tap as usual once the phone is unlocked.
    • REMINDER: We have changed the backup format for Windows 10 Mobile devices to reduce the size of the backup stored in OneDrive. As a result, if you do a backup on a device running the latest Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview builds and move back to the released version of Windows 10 Mobile (Build 10586) and restore from your backup – your Start screen layout won’t restore and remain the default Start layout. Your previous backup also gets overwritten. If you need to go back to Build 10586 temporarily, once you are on Build 10586 you should disable backup so it doesn’t overwrite the good backup from Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview builds.
    We’re getting down to the wire, my Insiders. Thank you for your dedication this past weekend and every day.

    Keep hustling,
    Dona <3

    Yup I pretty much like it and would give it a 10 out of 10 if not for the update debacle (still).

    I will never get used to Microsoft installing updates without my say so and hope that at some point in the future this policy will change, especially as the free offer will be over too.

    Apologies. Anyone reading my post #691. Posted in the wrong thread. The contents referred to the Tuesday update - NOT the new insider build

    Hello my Windows Insiders!

    I spent a few days this week at our Worldwide Partner Conference in Toronto this week and one of the most exciting things for me was how much people are talking about the Windows Insider Program. We got multiple shout-outs during the keynotes (by Satya on Monday, by Bryan Roper and his Bridgestone Tire on Tuesday) as well as a segment on Windows Weekly and the whole SurfaceSmiths podcast. The photo below is of the local Windows Insiders dinner where we got to know an incredibly diverse group of Insiders who are leading in the Toronto area. We can’t wait to do more of these types of things globally. It’s pretty cool to see people who have been a part of the Windows ecosystem for a long time be genuinely excited and curious about how the Insiders are going to transform the world next. I love being on this journey with you. Thank you!

    And now, the build news: today we are releasing Build 14390 for both PC and Mobile to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring.

    The Microsoft Edge Team has a new extension to tell you about that many of you have been waiting for:

    • Amazon Assistant: Amazon’s official browser extension is now available for Microsoft Edge! Amazon Assistant helps you make better decisions wherever you shop online by giving you access to Deal of the Day, Product Comparison, Wish List and Shortcuts to your favorite Amazon destinations. Check out all of the available extensions by launching Microsoft Edge, opening the “…”menu, selecting “Extensions” and then clicking “Get extensions from the Store”.”
    Improvements and fixes for PC
    • You should no longer see the error code 0x80004005 when enabling Developer Mode on the “For Developers” Settings page if your PC is using a non-EN-US language.
    Known issues for PC
    • AWARENESS: A recent fix went into place for the Hyper-V firmware that will that affect the ability to boot Windows Server 2016 Tech Preview 5 VMs with Secure Boot enabled. A fix for TP5 builds has been developed however, due to release schedules, the Insider Preview build changes will be released before the TP5 fix is released.

    Team, we’re getting down to the wire for the Anniversary Update release. Please install this build and try things differently than usual this weekend. We still have our quests published in Feedback Hub. We’re going to be doing these this weekend, so if you do as well, please send us feedback on them. I’m going to be creating images on Sketchpad for an IoT project I want to do with you guys next month. I’ll tweet pics as I go.

    We are so grateful to be sprinting the finish line with you by our side. Thank you!!!

    Keep hustling,

    I don't know how many are trying Build 14390 but I do find it to be stable and really like it. I have heard that there will be one more build coming out before the RC. Don't know if that is true or not.

    My sources say maybe 2. Culminating before the release date to build 400.

    391 (escrow) and 395 are already hanging loose.
    I've dropped out of the fast (and slow) ring, as my download speed was a great hindrance. So I am happy, at this penultimate stage, to wait for the official update. It has been known to come early on the msdn download site, so I have an eagle eye out there.

    I am going to stay with it for another 9 days and then switch back for the big update.

    Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14393 for PC and Mobile
    By Dona Sarkar / Software Engineer, Windows and Devices Group

    Hello my Windows Insiders!

    I hope everyone had an awesome weekend. Many of you know that helping people learn tech is a deep passion of mine so I spent some time working on some UWP app ideas that the we can do with you all, both in-person and online. We are always looking to learn new things (such as IoT development) and what better way that alongside all of you. I’ll share some videos of the progress we make.

    In build news, today we are releasing Build 14393 for both PC and Mobile to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring. This build includes a handful of new fixes to take note of:

    Improvements and fixes for PC
    • We have improved the reliability of Start, Cortana, and Action Center.
    • You should now be able to mount iPods as USB mass-storage devices.
    Improvements and fixes for Mobile
    • We fixed an issue resulting in rapid battery drain when Visual Voicemail syncs voicemail messages on Dual SIM devices like the Lumia 950 XL.
    • We also fixed an issue causing some battery drain on older devices like the Lumia 535, 640, 735, 830, 930 and Icon.
    • We fixed the issue causing Voice Recorder to not show up consistently as an option for Call Recording. A app update was released last Friday that fixes this issue. Make sure you have the app version 10.1607.1931.0.
    • We fixed several issues impacting Dual SIM capabilities. Using a device with two SIMs should work as it should.
    Known issues for PC
    • We are aware of certain cases in which Surface Books and Surface Pro 4’s may bugcheck (bluescreen) due to a camera driver issue. An updated driver will roll-out via Windows Update soon that will fix this.
    Known issues for Mobile
    • We are continuing to investigate W-Fi issues on certain devices.
    • Turning off Bluetooth can sometimes result in freeze, crash, or reset. See this forum post for more details.
    • Wallet users are prompted for a PIN twice when using tap to pay from a locked phone. You can enter their PIN twice and tap as usual once the phone is unlocked. A fix for this will come as a Wallet app update via the Store.
    • REMINDER: We have changed the backup format for Windows 10 Mobile devices to reduce the size of the backup stored in OneDrive. As a result, if you do a backup on a device running the latest Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview builds and move back to the released version of Windows 10 Mobile (Build 10586) and restore from your backup – your Start screen layout won’t restore and remain the default Start layout. Your previous backup also gets overwritten. If you need to go back to Build 10586 temporarily, once you are on Build 10586 you should disable backup so it doesn’t overwrite the good backup from Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview builds. We will stop noting this going forward.
    All right, that’s all for now. Have an excellent week, team.

    Keep hustling,

    Dona <3
