This afternoon (Redmond time) Microsoft has just released Windows Insider build 18985 for connoisseurs of Fast Ring 20H1. Along with an updated Bluetooth pairing experience and an update of the Snip & Sketch screen capture application, the company has published a list of fixes that will be released until 18985, including some fixes to the new cloud download option to reset Windows 10 PC, Task Manager fixes, and what appears to be the final resolution of the known problem of the Realtek SD card reader. Here is the complete list of "changes, improvements and fixes for PC" for compilation 18985:
- We solved a problem in which adding a new language pack reported a successful installation but it was not installed.
- We solved a problem that affected the reliability of Configuration when accessing the Network and Internet section.
- We solved a problem that could cause the printer entries not to display correctly for non-administrator accounts: the text overlaps and cannot be clicked.
- We solved a problem that resulted in the Task The administrator shows an unexpectedly high temperature for certain GPUs.
- We solved a problem that caused the Task Manager to unexpectedly show a 0% CPU usage in the Performance tab.
- We solved a problem where the settings that enable Microsoft accounts on your device go without a password (by requiring Windows Hello login and hiding the password option from the lock screen) was displayed for users of the local account Now, the settings will only be displayed for users of Microsoft accounts.
- Fixed an issue with the Reset this download option in the PC cloud that did not calculate the correct amount of space that needed to be freed if it did not have enough disk space to continue.  We solved a problem with the option Reset this download option in the cloud of the PC that did not work when specific optional functions were installed.
- At this time, we are eliminating our known issue about Realtek SD card readers. If you still have problems with an SD card, take a moment to check for driver updates and send comments if that doesn't solve it for you.
You may think that the list of known problems is a bit smaller. time without the ubiquitous problem of the Realtek card reader, and I would be right. Apparently, problems with anti-cheat software, which require the work of game developers to update their game software after changes in Windows 10, are also about to be resolved. Microsoft says it is working with game developers to "minimize the likelihood of these problems in the future." However, some seemingly new problems are emerging regarding the mixed reality of Windows. Here is the complete list of known issues:
- There has been a problem with previous versions of anti-cheat software used with games in which after upgrading to the latest 19H1 Insider Preview compilations they can cause PC failures. We are working with partners to update their software with a solution, and most games have released patches to prevent PCs from experiencing this problem. To minimize the possibility of encountering this problem, make sure you are running the latest version of your games before attempting to update the operating system. We are also working with game developers and anti-cheats to solve similar problems that may arise with the 20H1 Insider Preview compilations and will work to minimize the likelihood of these problems in the future.
- Certain 2D applications (such as Feedback Hub, Microsoft Store, 3D Viewer) are incorrectly treated as protected content within Windows Mixed Reality. During video capture, these 2D applications block the recording of your content.
- When capturing a playback video while an error occurs through the Feedback Hub in Windows Mixed Reality, you cannot select Stop Video, due to the protected content problem mentioned above. If you want to send a playback video, you must wait 5 minutes for the recording time to run out. If you want to archive the error without a playback video, you can close the Comment Center window to end the recording and resume the error presentation when you reopen the application in Comments> Drafts.
- When viewing optional drivers in the new section on the Windows Update page, you may notice that older drivers are shown as available for download. If they are accepted, they will try to install it and they will not. This is an error related to the revised Windows Update detection logic instead of this new user interface. The root cause is understood, and there will be a solution available in an upcoming version.
We hope to hear from the 19H2 side of things soon, since it has been a while since we had a 19H2 version, but for now, if you are a Windows Insider in the 20H1 fast ring, download it now!
