Windows Insider tråden.

post-31420-0-24242000-1537999056_thumb.png

 

Tenkte jeg kunne bidra litt med å starte opp denne tråden og poste litt innimellom de oppdateringene som blir sluppet, nå er jeg ikke helt inne på "Fast Ring" hele tiden da jeg har en god del å gjøre på den personlige siden som tar opp tid, men tenkte at dette kunne være en grei plass å ha litt informasjon.

Har du aldri vært med på Windows Insider opplegget så er det rett og slett forhåndslipp av oppdateringene som gjøres på Windows slik at vanlige brukere kan bli med og teste dem, man kan selv velge hvor hyppig og risikabelt disse oppdateringene kommer og sånn i farta betyr det at det finnes :

Tre typer innhold :
*Bare fikser , apps og drivere.
*Aktiv utvikling av Windows.
*Skip ahead / Hopp videre til neste Windows utgave.

Som man sikkert forstår så er den øverste helt grei å bruke, nr 2 betyr at man bidrar ved å ha aktive oppdateringer av Windows og sistenevnte er der med så fort noe nytt slippes (som kan være mer risikabelt , per dags dato har jeg hatt en ren reinstall pga hd krasj der ).

Litt lengre ned har man et valg til som vil påvirke valgene man får ovenfor, og det er hvor ofte du ønsker å få oppdateringer, Fast eller Slow.
*Fast : Da er man som regel i aktiv utvikling av Windows ringen eller skip ahead og ønsker å bidra med å teste hvordan ting fungerer før mange andre.
*Slow : Mindre risiko for at ting går galt, men fortsatt bidra med tilbakemelding til Microsoft.

Vil legge ut litt hva som kommer ut av utgivelser i denne tråden og siden hvor man kan lese mer om det her.

Tråden er også ment som en liten hyllest til myhken.

Og der kom det enda en oppdatering, det er tydelig at det nå jobbes intens med visuelle forbedringer og fikser på mindre feil som har vært der en stund.

Edit : Som Nebrewfoz påpeker er dette trolig det som kommer i etterkant til neste build av Windows. Er ikke inne og tester selv den aller siste utgaven akkurat nå( sitter på 17763.1 ) men plukker jo opp release notes fra insider.

Annonse

Disse preview-buildene 18242 og oppover er for den versjonen som skal releases om 6 måneder; altså en skip-ahead versjon. Dette ser man også i kodenavnet "19H1" - 1.halvår 2019.

 

Den versjonen som er så å si gryteklar nå, har build nr. 17763.

Den har tidligere hatt kodenavn RS5 (Redstone 5), og blir snart til Windows 10 Version 1809.

Godt mulig, hadde dog oppfattet det fra forumet som at en del av feilrettingen ville bli med på 1809, men vi får vente og se.

Skal endre litt på hva jeg har skrevet ovenfor.

Hvis 17763 viser seg å være release-versjonen av 1809, så kan vi regne med at det samme dag blir sluppet en oppdatering (gjennom Windows Update) som fikser nyoppdagete bugs. Vi vil m.a.o. gå fra 17763.1 til 17763.n samme dag.

Noen av disse bugfixene kan godt være overført fra skip-ahead-versjonene (18xxx).

Tråden her er forresten ikke ment som at jeg skal ha enerett, ønsker noen å bidra med innsyn, meninger, erfaringer osv i forhold til de forskjellige utgavene så er det bare å kjøre på.

 

Selv er jeg veldig fornøyd med 17763.1 som føles kjapp og relativt stabil i forhold til noen andre utgaver jeg har testet.

Jeg har heller ikke noe å utsette på 17763.1, men jeg har den installert på en "reserve-PC" som jeg ikke bruker så mye - jeg har ikke tatt sjansen på å kjøre Fast Ring Previews på min "daily driver". Men Microsoft får nå i det minste gleden av telemetridata fra den hardwarekonfigurasjonen jeg har på denne PC'en. (Intel Z87 chipset, i5 CPU, R290 GPU)

Jeg har 17763.1 installert på gaming laptopen min, fikk den oppdateringen i går, så jeg har ikke sjekket så mye. Men alt funker helt topp så langt med spilling av Shadow of Tomb Raider.

 

Ingen problemer med programmer heller, så langt er jeg som sagt happy.

Burde egentlig oppdatert tråden for en stund siden da det ble lansert den 03 oktober følgende build :

Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18252

https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2018/10/03/announcing-windows-10-insider-preview-build-18252/#LUiQWT6gem0O6roE.97

What’s new in Build 18252

Network improvements
Enhanced settings for Ethernet: We’ve heard your feedback, and you can now use the Settings app to configure advanced Ethernet IP settings. We have added support for configuring a static IP address as well as setting a preferred DNS server. These settings were previously accessed within Control Panel, but you will now find them on the connection properties page under IP settings.

On the Ethernet properties page in Settings, showing editing IP assignment settings (IPV4 and IPV6).

New icon for disconnected internet: First seen on Always Connected PCs, as some keen eye’d Insiders noticed, we have brought the disconnected internet icon to all devices running Windows 10. This single icon appears when there is no internet connection detected, and replaces the individual disconnected icons for Cellular, Wi-Fi, and Ethernet. This new icon should help you quickly identify network problems so that you can take action to resolve them.



Ebrima font addition with ADLaM support
The Windows team is pleased to announce you can now read your ADLaM documents and webpages with the Windows Ebrima font!

ADLaMis a writing system for Pular/Fulfulde, the language of the Fulani people, predominantly residing in west Africa. In the early 1990s, two young teenager brothers, Abdoulaye and Ibrahima Barry, created this writing system. Their work became “Bindi Pulaar” and eventually “ADLaM,” ADLaM is enabling literacy and growing in use for commerce, education, and publishing across western Africa. It was added to Unicode in Unicode 9.0.

The Ebrima font also supports other African writings systems N’ko, Tifinagh, Vai and Osmanya – here’s a sample of what the font looks like:

Showing Ebrima Adlam font sample.

General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC
We fixed the issue causing Task Manager to report inaccurate CPU usage.
We fixed the issue where the arrows to expand “Background processes” in Task Manager blink constantly and weirdly.
We added a microphone icon in the system tray which appears when your microphone is in use.
Pressing F4 when in Registry Editor will now place the caret at the end of the address bar, expanding the autocomplete dropdown.
We fixed an issue where when using dark mode File Explorer’s context menu had an unexpectedly thick white border in recent builds.
We fixed an issue resulting in the advanced startup pages not rendering text correctly (showing square boxes instead) in certain languages, like Thai.
We fixed the issue causing Narrator to crash when reading by line in a Command Prompt.
We fixed the issue where Narrator did not read out the Windows Security application name in Shell Notification area (Systray) and only read the recommended actions.
The corresponding Ethernet adapter name will now be listed in the sidebar under the “Ethernet” header so you can easily differentiate Ethernet entries at a glace if there’s more than one.
In RS5 we introduced extra pages to the Emoji Panel when using it in Chinese (Simplified), and based on your feedback we’re looking to expand these to more languages. After upgrading to today’s build, some Insiders may see them – more details coming later.
We fixed an issue resulting in Windows Hello not working on the login screen in the previous build (instead of logging in it would prompt you to enter a pin).
Known issues
Error 0xC1900101: if your device hits this error and fails to update, rebooting and retrying the update should bypass and allow the update to proceed.
We’re investigating an issue resulting in Settings crashing when invoking actions on certain pages. This impacts multiple settings, including:
In Ease of Access, when clicking “Apply” on Make Text Bigger the Settings app will crash and the text size will not be applied.
In Windows Security, when clicking hyperlinks the Settings app will crash.
If you cannot sign in with any credential and logon fails with error 0xc000005e, rebooting your computer should resolve this.
Some users may have an issue launching Inbox Apps after updating. To resolve this please check the following thread on the Answers forum: aka.ms/18252-App-Fix.
[ADDED] If the update succeeded but Office will not launch or services did not start, rebooting your computer should resolve the issues.
[ADDED] Entering the wrong PIN can show an error and stop further attempts from logging in again until the computer has been restarted.
[ADDED] If you are a Mixed Reality User, you might be impacted the by “Inbox Apps launching issue” mentioned above. As a workaround please un-install the Mixed Reality Portal app and re-install it from the store to get the app back to a working state.
Known issues for Developers
If you install any of the recent builds from the Fast ring and switch to the Slow ring – optional content such as enabling developer mode will fail. You will have to remain in the Fast ring to add/install/enable optional content. This is because optional content will only install on builds approved for specific rings.
New Achievement badges for 19H1
We are releasing new badges for 19H1 to reward our Insiders for updating their machines to the most recent Insider preview builds. This is a small token to show our appreciation and give you recognition for your impact in ensuring we deliver a quality product that our customers will love. Once you’ve met the criteria for each achievement badge, you can view it in the Feedback Hub (badges are awarded on a weekly basis).

Og da kommer neste versjon av Insider : 

Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18262

Link her


Hello Windows Insiders! Today, we are releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18262 (19H1) to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring AND those who have opted in to Skip Ahead.

REMINDER: As is normal with builds early in the development cycle, builds may contain bugs that might be painful for some. If this makes you uncomfortable, you may want to consider switching to the Slow ring. Slow ring builds will continue to be higher quality.

What’s new in Build 18262
See DPI Awareness in Task Manager
Interested to know which of your running apps is DPI Aware? We’ve added a new optional column to the Details tab of Task Manager so you can find out the DPI awareness per process – here’s what it looks like:

Showing the DPI Awareness category in Task Manager, with examples of Per-Monitor and System.

To show the column, right-click on any of the column headers in the Details tab, click “Select Columns”, then add “DPI Awareness” to the list. To learn more about DPI Awareness, see here.

Uninstall additional inbox apps
In 19H1, we are adding the ability to uninstall the following (preinstalled) Windows 10 inbox apps via the context menu on the Start menu All Apps list:

3D Viewer (previously called Mixed Reality Viewer)
Calculator
Calendar
Groove Music
Mail
Movies & TV
Paint 3D
Snip & Sketch
Sticky Notes
Voice Recorder
In the Windows 10 October 2018 Update and prior, only the following inbox apps could be uninstalled via the context menu on the Start menu All Apps list:

Microsoft Solitaire Collection
My Office
OneNote
Print 3D
Skype
Tips
Weather
Troubleshooting improvements
Don’t feel like troubleshooting? We’ve got you covered. In previous releases, if you noticed your PC was having a problem, you would have to find the right troubleshooter and then manually walk through all the different steps to resolve it. We hear your feedback that the time that takes to do can be frustrating – why not just automatically fix issues that you know how to fix and can detect? We agree! If an issue occurs we want to get you back up and running as quickly as possible, so with Build 18262 you’ll find a new recommended troubleshooting setting under Settings > Update & Security > Troubleshoot in Build 18262. This feature uses diagnostic data you send to deliver a tailored set of fixes matching problems we detect on your device and will automatically apply them to your PC.

We’re still hard at work on this feature so it’s greyed out right now in Settings, but stay tuned for updates in future builds!

Narrator Improvements
Narrator Read by Sentence: You can now read next, current and previous sentences in Narrator. Read by sentence is available with the keyboard and with touch. Move by sentence doesn’t yet work for Braille.

Caps + Ctrl + Period (.) to Read next sentence
Caps + Ctrl + Comma (,) to Read current sentence
Caps + Ctrl + M to Read previous sentence
Sentence is now a new Narrator view and can be reached via Caps + Page Up or Caps + Page Down and then you can navigate with Caps + Left arrow for move by previous sentence and Caps + Right arrow for move by next sentence.

General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC
We fixed an issue resulting in App History being blank in Task Manager in the last flight.
We fixed an issue from the previous flight resulting in Task Manager’s icon in the notification area of the taskbar not staying visible while Task Manager was open.
We fixed an issue resulting in the upgrade to the previous flight potentially failing with error 0xC1900101. This same issue could have resulted in Office products not launching, services not starting, and/or your credentials not being accepted on the login screen after first upgrading until rebooting.
We fixed an issue where Settings would crash in the last few flights if in Ease of Access you clicked “Apply” on Make Text Bigger.
We fixed an issue where Settings in the last few flights might crash in the last few flights when clicking Check for updates or applying an updated Active Hours range.
We fixed an issue where Notepad wasn’t listed on the Set Defaults by App page in Settings.
When adding a new language in Settings, we now offer separate options for installing the language pack and setting the language as the Windows display language. We also show separate options for installing the Speech recognition and Text-to-speech features, when these features are available for the language.
We’ve updated the Printers & Scanners page in Settings to now include a link straight to the troubleshooter in case you need it.
Some Insiders may notice some changes to clipboard history – more details later.
We fixed an issue resulting in File Explorer not launching if invoked from a pinned Start tile when in Tablet Mode.
We fixed an issue resulting in the brightness sometimes resetting to 50% after a reboot.
Known issues
We’re investigating an issue resulting in Settings crashing when invoking actions on certain pages. This impacts multiple settings, including various links in the Windows Security section.
Some users may have an issue launching Inbox Apps after updating. To resolve this please check the following thread on the Answers forum: https://aka.ms/18252-App-Fix.
Switching audio endpoints from the volume flyout in the taskbar doesn’t work – there will be a fix for this in an upcoming flight, we appreciate your patience.
Task View fails to show the + button under New Desktop after creating 2 Virtual Desktops.
Known issues for Developers
If you install any of the recent builds from the Fast ring and switch to the Slow ring – optional content such as enabling developer mode will fail. You will have to remain in the Fast ring to add/install/enable optional content. This is because optional content will only install on builds approved for specific rings.
Insider Community

And ten extraordinary winners of the Windows Insider Women in Computing recently experienced the Grace Hopper Celebration, to be followed by mentoring at Microsoft HQ.

Kan være lurt å ha passord tilgjengelig, denne rotet til mitt hurtig passord så måtte bla opp med det på 20...

 

Ellers fungerer ting relativt ok, kjekt å kunne fjerne konkrete programmer om du føler det er MS press bak dem.

Det finner jeg fort ut ved neste build :p

Men tilbakemeldingene vi gir til MS kan hjelpe til ved å levere en bedre opplevelse for forbrukerne og dermed kan det være at man får nye mapper for å ikke forstyrre like mye.

Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18267
 



Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18267

 SHARE  TWEET  SHARE  SHARE  SKYPE
 


Hello Windows Insiders! Today, we are releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18267 (19H1) to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring.
REMINDER: As is normal with builds early in the development cycle, builds may contain bugs that might be painful for some. If this makes you uncomfortable, you may want to consider switching to the Slow ring. Slow ring builds will continue to be higher quality.

What’s new in Build 18267

Input Improvements
Vietnamese Telex and Number key-based keyboards are now available on your PC: Do you write Vietnamese? We want you to have the best possible typing experience, so we’re happy to announce that with this build you can now use Vietnamese Telex and Number-key based (VNI) keyboards for typing Vietnamese! Bringing these keyboard options to PC has been one of the top feature requests in the input space, so we’re looking forward to you trying it out!
Here’s a short gif of what it looks like (using the touch keyboard so you can see what we’re typing):
761a3ef99bda8503d455a071fb995299.gif
If your native language is Vietnamese or you have some knowledge of the Vietnamese language, please try them out with hardware keyboard or touch keyboard and let us know how it feels.  Here are the steps to get started:

  •  
  • Select Start > Settings > Time & Language > Language from the navigation menu.
  • Select the + icon labeled [Add a preferred language] (or skip to step 4 if Vietnamese was already added)
  • Type “Vietnamese” in the search box and select Vietnamese. Click Next button and install Vietnamese on your device, which will return you to Language page.
  • Click Vietnamese, and then click Option button. Which will navigate you to Language options: Vietnamese.
  • Select the + icon labeled [Add a keyboard] (or skip to step 7 if your target keyboard was already added)
  • Enable the Vietnamese Telex keyboard or Vietnamese Number key-based keyboard (whichever you prefer).
  • Click the input indicator button on the taskbar (or press Windows key + Space) and select Vietnamese Telex or Number-key based keyboard. Input anything via your hardware keyboard or touch keyboard.
More symbols are now available on the touch keyboard: Now you can easily access more symbols and special characters directly from touch keyboard. After changing to the number & symbols view (&123) on the touch keyboard, just tap the new ‘Ω ‘ key and you’ll now see a number of tabs with lists of symbols.

Accessibility Improvements
  • Narrator works better with Chrome now! Using up and down arrows in scan mode, navigating with tab key, continuous reading commands, and navigating by headings and links have initial support for Chrome, with more functionality coming in future flights.
  • Narrator Braille: BRLTTY version 5.6 is now provided which adds USB support for Inceptor and Orbit 20 displays. In addition, the BrailleNote Touch is recognized when using USB. Baum displays can now use B9 and B10 interchangeably. Liblouis binaries and tables have been updated to version 3.7.0.
  • UI Automation framework IAccessible2 Support: The UI Automation framework now supports translating IAccessible2 information from Chrome, which supports IAccessible2 rather than UI Automation. This enables UI Automation clients to receive the IAccessible2 information through the UI Automation client interfaces.
Enhanced Mode for Search Indexer
To improve our search indexing, we created a new feature that enables Windows to search all your folders and drives, instead of limiting search to your documents, pictures, videos, and desktop by default. To turn it on, search for Windows search settings, and in the Searching Windows settings, under “Find My Files”, select Enhanced to begin the one-time indexing process. It will take about 15 minutes for search to begin returning these additional files in results. If you have lots of files, it may take longer. Make sure you plug in before you start, indexing is a resource-intensive activity.
When the indexing is complete, you’ll be able to find all your files almost instantly when you use Windows Search. To exclude a folder from search, add it to the Excluded Folders list. Thanks for your feedback about search and the indexer. These improvements were made because of your input. Keep the feedback coming!
b4ee8524ef383c6e8d98db4832bc196d-1024x71

General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC
  • We fixed an issue resulting in Settings crashing when invoking actions on certain places, including under Windows Security.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in some Insider experiencing green screens with IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL in the previous flight.
  • We fixed an issue where the Action Center might suddenly appear on the opposite side of the screen before appearing on the correct side.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in the Action Center icon sometimes showing a number of unread notifications, however when you opened Action Center it would be blank.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in Settings crashes on launch for a small number of users.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in recently opened items sometimes showing in jump lists even though “Show recently opened items in jump lists” was disabled in Settings.
  • We fixed an issue where the Built-in Phrases Setting page for the Pinyin IME would hang for a time if you clicked any phase in the list.
  • We fixed an issue where Uninstall would still be shown as an option when right-clicking apps in Start if the group policy “Prevent users from uninstalling applications from Start” was enabled.
  • We fixed an issue where if you had an inbox app with a version number longer than 20 characters it wouldn’t be returned as a result if you searched for it.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in switching audio endpoints from the volume flyout in the taskbar not working in the last few flights.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in some users having issues launching inbox apps after updating to the last few flights.
  • We fixed an issue where if word wrap was enabled when using Notepad with a screen reader some words might unexpectedly be read out as two half words rather than one.
Known issues
  • Task View fails to show the + button under New Desktop after creating 2 Virtual Desktops.
  • Some users will notice the update status cycling between Getting Things Ready, Downloading, and Installing. This is often accompanied with error 0x8024200d caused by a failed express package download.
  • If you change Task Manager settings, the next time Task Manager is opened it will revert to default.
  • If you have a have a large number of OTF fonts, or OTF fonts that support the extended East Asian character set, you may experience some unexpectedly missing text across the system. We’re working on a fix. If you encounter this issue, navigating to the Fonts folder (c:\windows\fonts) may resolve it.
Known issues for Developers
  • If you install any of the recent builds from the Fast ring and switch to the Slow ring – optional content such as enabling developer mode will fail. You will have to remain in the Fast ring to add/install/enable optional content. This is because optional content will only install on builds approved for specific rings.

REMINDER: As is normal with builds early in the development cycle, builds may contain bugs that might be painful for some. If this makes you uncomfortable, you may want to consider switching to the Slow ring. Slow ring builds will continue to be higher quality.

What’s new in Build 18272 Sign-in Options Redesigned for Windows Hello

Security shouldn’t be intimidating, and we aspire to help you eliminate passwords. That’s why we want to make sure you can easily set up your first line of defense securing your device with Windows Hello. Your feedback that the previous design was cluttered, and confusing is what drove us to simplify the Sign-in options Settings. We believe this update will help you choose the safest and fastest sign-in option for your needs, whether that’s using a PIN or a biometric factor like fingerprint or facial recognition.

Ultimately, we want to help you make the right decision for your situation. By condensing each sign-in option into a list that explains individual properties and next step for setup, we hope you feel more informed the next time you decide how you want to sign in using enhanced security features with Windows Hello.

Input Improvements

Expanding SwiftKey’s Typing Intelligence to More Languages: In RS5 we started working on bringing SwiftKey’s AI technology to Windows, and we’re excited to announce that we’re expanding support to the following languages:

  • English (Canada) – en-CA
  • English (India) – en-IN
  • French (Canada) – fr-CA
  • French (Belgium) – fr-BE
  • French (Switzerland) – fr-CH
  • Portuguese (Portugal) – pt-PT
  • German (Switzerland) – de-CH
  • Spanish (United States) – es-US

If you’re a touch keyboard user that writes in any of these languages, please try out the text predictions and shapewriting in this build and let us know how it feels for you. If you’d like to compare how the keyboard feels with and without this change, check the options for supported languages under Settings > Devices > Typing > Suggestions and Autocorrections.

Using a physical keyboard? Hardware keyboard text suggestions are also supported with the above languages now. Text suggestions for the hardware keyboard is a learning tool we originally introduced in RS4, and expanded language support for with RS5. If you’d like to try it out in one of the supported languages, you can do so by enabling the “Show text suggestions as I type” feature under Settings > Devices > Typing.

e297db592b8fca87f7e1b08f139f8b51.gif

Indic Phonetic keyboards now available for PC: Do you write in an Indic language? We’ve heard your feedback, and in addition to the Indic Traditional INSCRIPT keyboards already available, with today’s build we’re adding Indic Phonetic keyboards for Hindi, Bangla, Tamil, Marathi, Punjabi, Gujarati, Odia, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam!

How does a phonetic keyboard work? Basically it’s a convenient way of typing that leverages the English QWERTY keyboard – as you type, we use transliteration to suggest possible Indic text candidates. For example, if you typed “namaste” using the Hindi Phonetic keyboard we would suggest नमस्ते, as you can see in the below gif:117667e527602838698c5555195fbc88-1024x78

 

 

If your native language is one of the above languages or you have some knowledge of Indic languages, please try this out with either the hardware or touch keyboard and let us know how it feels.

Here are the steps to get started:

  1. Select Start > Settings > Time & Language-> Language from the navigation menu.
  2. Select the + icon labeled [Add a preferred language] (or skip ahead to step 4 if your preferred Indic language was already added).
  3. Type the name of an Indic language into the search box and select it – for example “Hindi”. Click the Next button and install the Indic language on your device, which will return you to the Language page.
  4. Now back on the Language page, click the one you just added, and then click the Options button. This will take you to that language’s options page.
  5. Select the + icon labeled [Add a keyboard].
  6. Enable the Phonetic keyboard, for example [Hindi Phonetic – Input method editor] – now the languages options page will look something like this:

c29d4801f0b4208606269016ff5c640f-1024x64

  1. Click input indicator on the taskbar (or press the Windows key + Space) and select the Indic Phonetic keyboard. Time to type something!

Note: The dictionaries used for the Indic Phonetic keyboards need to be downloaded. Right after adding the keyboard, please connect to Internet – you may need to wait a bit for the dictionary download to finish.

Accessibility Improvements

Narrator Caps Lock ON alert while typing: Narrator will now alert you when you are accidentally typing with Caps Lock turned on. The setting is on by default. To adjust this setting, visit Narrator Settings (Ctrl + Win + N), then navigate to the “Change how much content you hear” heading and review the combo box for “Change when you receive Caps Lock warnings while typing”.

It will work even if you have character echo option (“Hear characters as you type”) disabled, and it will work in edit fields as well as password field. By default, Narrator will always alert you regardless of presses of the Shift key as you type alphabetic characters. But you can choose to only be alerted when you press the Shift key together with an alphabetic character, or you can disable the feature altogether.

In this initial release, the sound effect you hear will sound like the standard Narrator error sound effect which we are working on improving. We look forward to your feedback on this new feature!

Other Updates for Insiders

Snip & Sketch (Version 10.1809.2964.0): Thank you to everyone who’s shared feedback so far! It’s been great seeing all of your comments, and we’re making progress on addressing them with our latest app update that’s in the process of rolling out to Insiders in the Fast ring. The update brings several improvements, including:

  • Adding some emphasis. Planning to paste your screenshot somewhere? Does that place have the same color background as the background of your screenshot? When you update to the latest app version you’ll find a new option to add a border to your screenshots – giving them that little bit extra needed to stand out.
  • Printing! Sometimes you want to keep a physical copy of your screenshots – we hear you that it took too many steps before, and have added a button in the toolbar so you can print directly from the app (you can also print to PDF!)

ed1dc4237e6ac30b72732f162d017885.jpg

  • Refining our save options:
    • If you have unsaved changes and go to close a window or open a file that will now pop a confirmation.
    • The default proposed file name will now include a timestamp.
    • We’ve heard your feedback and saving now also supports jpg and gif file types.
  • Also, we have a new settings page! We’re replacing our old the old About flyout with a full settings page where you’ll find the aforementioned option to add a border, an option for updates made to your snip to copy automatically to your clipboard, and more!

bda5ff9f02ac23e609ecbc3fa158bc03-1024x80

Have an opinion as to what’s next? We have a few things on our list already and would love to hear your thoughts! Head to the Feedback Hub to see some of the things we’re already tracking and share your voice.

Sticky Notes 3.1 (Version 3.1.32): Thank you for sharing your feedback on 3.0 release with us. We think you are going to love this update!

e90dd858fa9002742c5c72b498530394-554x102

  • We tested the waters with the Charcoal Note and you all seemed keen to go even darker! Introducing full-on Dark Mode support in Sticky Notes.  We support Windows Dark Mode as well as the ability to set your color mode in Sticky Notes to suit your mood independent of your system settings.
  • Everyone seemed excited about Sticky Notes syncing, so we spent some time making it even faster! Check it out and let us know how it feels.

Please give it a shot and let us know on Feedback Hub your thoughts on the new update.

Want to get to your notes from anywhere? How about on the web at http://www.onenote.com/stickynotes! It will be rolling out worldwide soon – take a look and let us know what you think.

General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC
  • We’re rolling out a feature where if you right click on a group name or tile folder in Start, you will now have an option to unpin it. Currently 50% of Insiders will have this option.
  • We fixed an issue where Task Manager settings wouldn’t persist after closing and reopening Task Manager in recent flights.
  • We fixed an issue where only users in Vietnam could use the new Vietnamese Telex and Number key-based keyboards. Now anyone can use them – please try it out if you’re familiar with the language!
  • We fixed an issue where doing an upwards search with wrap enabled in Notepad wouldn’t find the last word in the text.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in Settings crashing when navigating to Data Usage.
  • We fixed an issue where starting the PIN removal process in Settings then clicking Cancel when prompted for your password would crash Settings.
  • We fixed an issue where twinui.dll would crash on some devices in the last few builds after selecting a wireless display to project to from the Connect flyout.
  • We fixed an issue where enhancements selected under Speaker Properties > Enhancements wouldn’t persist on upgrade.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in FLAC metadata being cut short in File Explorer and other locations.
  • The “Forget” option for Wi-Fi profiles is now available for non-admin users.
  • Ctrl + Mouse Wheel Scroll to zoom in text is now supported in Command Prompt, PowerShell and WSL.
  • When using dark theme (Settings > Personalization > Colors) your scrollbars in Command Prompt, PowerShell and WSL will now become dark too.
  • We fixed an issue with the console that could cause graphical glitches in the embedded terminal of VS Code (see Microsoft/vscode#57803).
  • The options to change your default app mode and enable/disable transparency have moved to the top of Colors Settings so it’s easier for people to find.
Known issues
  • Task View fails to show the + button under New Desktop after creating 2 Virtual Desktops.
  • Some users will notice the update status cycling between Getting Things Ready, Downloading, and Installing. This is often accompanied with error 0x8024200d caused by a failed express package download.
  • If you have a have a large number of OTF fonts, or OTF fonts that support the extended East Asian character set, you may experience some unexpectedly missing text across the system. We’re working on a fix. If you encounter this issue, navigating to the Fonts folder (c:\windows\fonts) may resolve it.
  • PDFs opened in Microsoft Edge may not display correctly (small, instead of using the entire space).
  • We’re investigating a race condition resulting in blue screens if your PC is set up to dual boot. If you’re impacted the workaround is to disable dual boot for now, we’ll let you know when the fix flights.
  • The hyperlink colors need to be refined in Dark Mode in Sticky Notes if the Insights are enabled.
  • Settings page will crash after changing the account password, we recommend using the CTRL + ALT + DEL method to change the password.
  • [ADDED] WSL will not work on this build. If you require WSL to work, you can rollback to Build 18267.
Known issues for Developers
  • If you install any of the recent builds from the Fast ring and switch to the Slow ring – optional content such as enabling developer mode will fail. You will have to remain in the Fast ring to add/install/enable optional content. This is because optional content will only install on builds approved for specific rings.

Og da har vi kommet til denne utgaven : 

Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18277

 

 

Happy Diwali for the Indian Windows Insiders who are celebrating! Today, we are releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18277 (19H1) to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring.

REMINDER: As is normal with builds early in the development cycle, builds may contain bugs that might be painful for some. If this makes you uncomfortable, you may want to consider switching to the Slow ring. Slow ring builds will continue to be higher quality.

If you are looking for a complete look at what build is in which Insider ring – head on over to Flight Hub. You can also check out the rest of our documentation here including a complete list of new features and updates that have gone out as part of Insider flights for the current development cycle (which currently is 19H1).

What’s new in Build 18277 Evolving Focus assist

Starting with the Windows 10 April 2018 Update, we embarked on a journey to help reduce the number of distractions you encounter when you’re trying to get in the zone. With today’s build, we’re taking this to the next level: We’ve added a new focus assist option so that when you’re doing *anything* full screen we can automatically turn on focus assist.

b16ccf9dcc827868ee6c0581c3794b26-1024x76

Watching a movie? Poring over some excel tables? Studying? Focus assist is here for you, and will keep your notifications quiet until you exit full screen mode.

Like our other focus assist settings, this can be found under Settings > System > Focus Assist. Make sure you take a moment to customize your priority list to ensure any notifications you want to break through the rule will appear! If you’d like to turn off the warning notification that’s shown in Action Center after entering focus assist, you can do so by clicking the rule in Focus Assist Settings which prompted the notification.

Improving your Action Center experience

One of the top requests we’ve heard from you is that you’d prefer the brightness Quick action to be a slider instead of a button, and with today’s build we’re making it happen!

f3ded6e39f880d45e21a71dd7964af5d-1024x68

But wait, there’s more!

You can now easily customize your Quick actions right from the Action Center itself, rather than having to go into Settings. That means not only can you re-arrange in the moment, but you can also add any Quick action you need on the fly, without needing for it to always take up space.

614f30eeed4919d6d5c4539f0ec512a1-1024x65

We’d love for you to try it out and share feedback!

Preparing for Emoji 12

With today’s build, Insiders will get a first look at the emoji we’ve designed so far in preparation for the Emoji 12 release! These emoji are available for use via the emoji panel (WIN + .) and the touch keyboard.

639b5e93a1dd8dc6297ff6bc0bc60244-1024x73

Note: The complete list of emoji for the Emoji 12 release is still in Beta, so Insiders may notice a few changes over the coming flights as the emoji are finalized. We have a bit more work to do, including adding search keywords for the new emoji, and adding a few emoji that aren’t finished yet.

High DPI Improvements

As many of you know, we’ve been working over the past few years to improve the High DPI story for Win32 (desktop) apps on Windows. As part of this, some of you may recall getting a toast about fixing your apps that led you to this setting we added with Build 17063:

ea1b221e57e3c643563307681ac95987.png

In 19H1, we’re enabling this setting by default, to help automatically address some of your scaling feedback, and reduce the number of times you see that “Fix blurry apps” notification.

We’d love your feedback! Notice that some of your apps seem blurry after docking/undocking, or other mixed DPI scenarios? You can let us know by reporting it here!

If you’re interested to learn whether or not an app is DPI aware you can find out using this feature we rolled out to Task Manager a few flights ago.

Windows Security gets an additional Windows Defender Application Guard setting

Insiders will notice that Isolated browsing has an additional toggle that lets users manage access to their camera and microphone while browsing using Application Guard for Microsoft Edge. If this is managed by enterprise admins, users can check how this setting is configured. For this to be turned on in Application Guard for Microsoft Edge, the camera and microphone setting must already be turned on for the device in Settings > Privacy > Microphone & Settings > Privacy > Camera.

5ed9e7d792e02a2ebc9ff58ae0aa449a-1024x74

Refreshing the Japanese IME

We’ve already made a few announcements about how we plan to improve your typing experiences in Windows with this release, and we’re excited to add one more to the list today! To provide increased security and reliability, we’re updating the Japanese IME by redesigning how it works with applications. Not only that, but we’ve updated the IME candidate window interface to be cleaner and more polished:

730c028c31e2633e0320ccfd489c62bf.png

You’ll notice that each text prediction candidate now has an index so you can quickly select it, just like the conversion candidates! We’re looking forward to you trying it out, and that’s not all! As part of this work, all of your familiar Japanese IME settings have now been fully integrated into Settings. If you’d like to check them out, fastest way there is to right-click the IME mode indicator in the taskbar and select Settings, although you can also get there from the Language Settings page.

e8df8f823ea9bffda6ff417469e15007-1024x49

Some Insiders have had this change for a few flights now, so we wanted to take a moment to say thank you for all of your great feedback so far! Please don’t hesitate to continue sharing thoughts with us about typing in Windows – our ears are open and we’d love to hear from you.

Help us shape the future of Cortana + Amazon Alexa

Recently, we announced an exciting preview in the US that allows you to call up Cortana on Amazon Alexa Echo devices – and Alexa on your Windows 10 PC. You can, for example, enlist Cortana through an Amazon Alexa Echo device to tell you your next meeting or have Alexa order groceries through your Windows 10 PC. Now, we’d like to take the experience even further with the help of Windows Insiders like you. Just start by completing this short survey.

If you haven’t already tried it out, simply click the microphone icon in Windows Search on your Windows 10 PC and say ‘’Hey Cortana, open Alexa’. Or, on your Amazon Echo device, say “Alexa, open Cortana” on Echo devices. (Then let us know what you think in the Feedback Hub.) For more, see our AI blog.

Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18282 (19H1)
 

 

NOVEMBER 14, 2018 10:02 AM

Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18282
 SHARE  TWEET  SHARE  SHARE  SKYPE
 

Hello Windows Insiders, today we are releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18282 (19H1) to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring.

REMINDER: As is normal with builds early in the development cycle, builds may contain bugs that might be painful for some. If this makes you uncomfortable, you may want to consider switching to the Slow ring. Slow ring builds will continue to be higher quality.

If you are looking for a complete look at what build is in which Insider ring – head on over to Flight Hub. You can also check out the rest of our documentation here including a complete list of new features and updates that have gone out as part of Insider flights for the current development cycle (which currently is 19H1).

What’s new in Build 18282 Windows Light Theme

dd2b8a94b9559143c6c97d239f6daa0f-1024x68

Ever since we introduced the ability to choose between light and dark in Windows 10, we’ve heard feedback asking for a truer separation between the two options. When you select Light under Settings > Personalization > Colors, the expectation is that the system color would be lighter too. And it didn’t do that before – the taskbar and many other things stayed dark. Now, if you choose Light under Settings > Personalization > Colors, all system UI will now be light. This includes the taskbar, Start menu, Action Center, touch keyboard, and more.

When you update to this build, your system color won’t automatically change to the new light system color. This is because we want everything to be exactly as you left it before you did the update. We’re leaving the choice up to you! If you had light mode selected prior to the update, this is what Color Settings will look like after updating:

4829e56bf79981e07f0c8a7e5b18e198-1024x79

To try the full light experience, just click the “Choose your color” dropdown and select Light.

As part of this work we’re also adding a new default wallpaper! Showcased above, you can use it on your PC today by going to Settings > Personalization > Themes and selecting “Windows Light”. This will also change your PC to be light themed.

We look forward to hearing your feedback on the new light system color experience. However, please note that we’re still working on “lightening up” different pieces of the OS and refining the experience. For example, the OneDrive icon in the notification area (system tray) is white making it hard to see when you are using the light system color. Expect us to refine this experience.

Bringing window snip to your modern snipping experience

When we started this journey, we asked for your feedback and two requests shone above the rest:

  • Add a delay snip option
  • Add window snip mode

Delay snip was the first on our list, and we added it with app version 10.1807. We then addressed a few more of your requests with app version 10.1809*, and today are really excited to announce that window snip is on its way to Insiders too!

5ebdc189495340dcafa5afeeb1833f84-1024x65

Start your snip via your preferred entry point (WIN + Shift + S, Print Screen (if you’ve enabled it), directly from within Snip & Sketch, etc.), and select the window snip option at the top, and snip away! That selection will be remembered the next time you start a snip.

Currently the window snipping experience is available for 50% of Insiders, as we want to ensure a smooth rollout – we’ll let you know once it’s live for 100%.

What’s next? Let us know what you’d like to see!

*This app update is now starting to roll out to people on Windows 10 version 1809! Please note that the borders feature is currently only supported on 19H1 builds, and like window snipping is currently only available for 50% of Insiders.

Improving your modern printing experience

You’ll notice a few differences once you update to today’s build:

  • First and foremost, the modern print dialog now supports light theme!
  • Second: In order to improve clarity, we’ve updated a number of the printing options to now include icons to help you easily and quickly identify the one you’re looking for. We’ve also added a line of description to some of the dropdown settings. This can be seen in the Pages example below, and in other settings if you click More Settings at the bottom of the print dialog.
  • Finally: If you have a long printer name, it will now wrap rather than being cut off.

If you have any further feedback in the printing space, please don’t hesitate to tell us! You can log feedback for this in the Feedback Hub under Devices and Drivers > Print.

1dd6e44f5bf83db558652a421fc514a9-1024x88

Updating Windows Update

Based on customer feedback, we’re introducing two important new features to provide more control over updates:

Pause Updates: We’re making the Pause Updates feature easier to find by surfacing the existing option directly on the ‘Settings > Update and Security > Windows Update’ page. Just like before, when Pause is enabled, some updates, like Windows Defender definition updates, will continue to be installed. In addition, Pause can be enabled for either a pre-defined number of days or until the specific day (day selector is available on Advanced options page).

5df4c134882f08be89ebf684cc3181cc-1024x72

Intelligent Active Hours: Setting your active hours will let Windows know when to avoid rebooting your device. However, we understand some of our users have shifting productivity schedules and remembering to adjust Active hours can be a challenge. Now, Windows can automatically adjust active hours for you based on your device activity. Just go into ‘Settings > Update and Security > Windows Update > Change active hours’ page to turn this setting on and know that reboots will not disrupt your productive time.

74d2844985055b97a58de43580793144-1024x72

Display brightness changes when going to battery power 

We’ve heard your feedback about a specific case where a display can become brighter when transitioning from a battery charger to battery power. For 19H1, we’re modifying the display brightness behavior so that this can no longer happen. If a person adjusts their display brightness, that brightness will now be remembered as their preferred brightness whether they are on battery or connected to a charger. This new behavior results in a more consistent and battery friendly experience. This does not affect battery saver mode settings; if a person has opted into lowering the screen brightness in battery saver mode, their display will still dim when the battery is below the threshold selected.

Please use Feedback Hub to tell us what you think! You can file the feedback under the category “Device and Drivers” and subcategory “Display and Graphics”.

Narrator Improvements

Narrator Verbosity Improvements: We are improving the amount of information you hear while interacting in Windows and you will see these changes filter in throughout future builds. In the current release we have a new Narrator Setting entitled “Hear advanced information about controls when navigating”. When this feature is off you will not hear the advanced information previously spoken on controls. In addition, Tooltips will not be read by default. Use the Narrator Advanced Information command (Narrator + 0) to read a tooltip on a given item. In addition, you will notice that some control information will now begin to speak in a more consistent manner. Checkboxes and radio buttons will be the first controls with this new behavior.

More consistent reading experience: Narrator text reading commands (previous/next for character/word/line/sentence/paragraph/page) can now be used to scan a full window from top to bottom. It is no longer possible to get the “not on explorable text” error and only when you reach the boundary of the window will you receive “no next/previous text.” Also, the views options are now consistent whether you are within text content or not. For example, you can now use the views option to search for a link anywhere within the active window.

Read by Sentence Braille support: The new read by sentence commands are now available via a braille display by pressing dots 2-3-4 or 2-3-4-7 in command input mode. Note, we are still working on fixing a couple issues.

Narrator character phonetic reading optimization: In a previous release, Narrator received support for reading characters phonetically. That is, reading out “a Alfa, b Bravo, c Charlie” while navigating “abc” by character.

Since then, we have received feedback that you didn’t want to hear the phonetic information announced automatically. Instead, this should be an on-demand feature, to be called upon only when you needed it. In this release, we will no longer announce the phonetic information automatically. As you navigate by characters, this information will be omitted. If you need the phonetic information to disambiguate characters, you can issue a command to hear the phonetics. Use the keyboard command of Narrator key + Comma twice quickly. If, for example, you are using the Standard Keyboard layout with the default Narrator key setting of “Caps Lock or Insert”, you would issue the command of Caps Lock + Comma (or Insert + Comma), where the Comma key is pressed twice quickly while depressing the Caps Lock (or Insert) key.

If you need to hear phonetics for a string of characters in a sustained fashion, the phonetics can be read out continuously as you move forward or backward through a range of characters with the Read Next Character command (Narrator key + Period) or Read Previous Character command (Narrator key + M). However, in this mode, you will only hear the phonetics announced and not the characters themselves (e.g., “Alfa Bravo Charlie”). To stop hearing the phonetics, press any other command (e.g., Left arrow, Right Arrow, Tab, etc.) or re-issue the Read Current Character command (Narrator key + Comma). Subsequent reading of next and previous characters via Narrator key + Period or Narrator key + M will return to reading just the characters, without phonetic information.

If you prefer the original character phonetic reading behavior, a setting has been added for you to toggle on the automatic reading of phonetics.

Other Updates for Insiders The OneDrive flyout now supports dark theme

In case you didn’t hear last week, OneDrive is rolling out an update so that the OneDrive flyout will now be dark if you have dark mode selected in Settings!

General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC
  • We fixed an issue causing File Explorer to freeze when interacting with video files in the last few flights.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in certain x86 apps and games having blurry text rendering in the last few flights, where the text appeared to have a shadow.
  • If you were seeing certain games fail to launch with an error citing unexpected kernel modification detected, please check the games for available updates and let us know if you encounter further issues.
  • When you hover over the navigation pane in Start, after a short period it will now automatically expand. This is something that a portion of Insiders have had for a little bit now, and after finding positive results we’re now rolling it out to all Insiders.
  • We’re adding a shadow to Action Center, to match the shadow seen along the borders of our other taskbar flyouts.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in some users not being able to set Win32 program defaults for certain app and file type combinations using the Open with… command or via Settings > Apps > Default apps.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in the context menu not coming up when right-clicking an open app in Task View.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in the touch keyboard not working correctly when trying to type Chinese with the Bopomofo IME.
  • We made some improvements in the Narrator and Chrome browser experience.
  • Narrator Scan Mode will more reliability toggle off when a user reaches the Word Online canvas, making it easier to type.
  • We fixed a race condition resulting in blue screens if your PC was set up to dual boot in recent builds.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in some Insiders experiencing a PDC_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT bug check / green screen on resume from hibernate.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in the Network button on the sign-in screen not working recently.
  • [ADDED 11/14] We fixed an issue resulting in some users noticing the update status cycling between Getting Things Ready, Downloading, and Installing (often accompanied with error 0x8024200d caused by a failed express package download).
  • [ADDED 11/14] We’ve updated the Start and Taskbar jump lists to now have a touch of Fluent Design.
Known issues
  • PDFs opened in Microsoft Edge may not display correctly (small, instead of using the entire space).
  • The hyperlink colors need to be refined in Dark Mode in Sticky Notes if the Insights are enabled.
  • Settings page will crash after changing the account password or PIN, we recommend using the CTRL + ALT + DEL method to change the password
  • Due to a merge conflict, the settings for enabling/disabling Dynamic Lock are missing from Sign-in Settings. We’re working on a fix, appreciate your patience.
  • Settings crashes when clicking on the “View storage usage on other drives” option under System > Storage.
  • Remote Desktop will only show a black screen for some users.
Known issues for Developers
  • If you install any of the recent builds from the Fast ring and switch to the Slow ring – optional content such as enabling developer mode will fail. You will have to remain in the Fast ring to add/install/enable optional content. This is because optional content will only install on builds approved for specific rings.

Usikker, for meg med pro så er den der i alle fall og ser sånn ut :
