What you need to know
- Build 21332 is rolling out in the Insider Dev Channel.
- It features minor changes and enhancements.
Microsoft is back with another Windows 10 Insider Preview build for testers in the Dev Channel to download and install. Today's build is 21332 and is packing yet more bug fixes and minor enhancements, with highlights being that "news and interests" is getting yet more improvements.
Here's what's new:
- Over the last two months, we've been trying out several variations of the news and interests experience on the Windows taskbar. We have received a lot of great feedback from Windows Insiders and as a result, have landed on what we believe to be the best experience for customers. The news and interests flyout experience will now show two columns of content, making it easy to quickly glance over your feed of weather, headlines, money, and more. By default, it will open via hover or click. Based on your feedback, we will also be introducing an option to only open via click in a coming update. As a result of these changes, we're resetting the roll out of news and interests to Insiders in the Dev Channel. This means that Insiders who previously had news and interests enabled on their taskbars may see it go away. Don't worry, we hope to make news and interests available to everyone in the Dev Channel soon!
- Our new option to paste as plain text from clipboard history (WIN + V) is now rolling out to all Insiders in the Dev Channel.
- Theme-aware splash screens have been re-enabled for everyone in the Dev Channel with this build.
- 3D Viewer and Paint 3D will no longer be preinstalled on clean installs of the latest Insider Preview builds. Both apps will still be available in the Store and will stay on your device after an OS update. So, if you upgraded your PC like normal, you shouldn't see these apps changed in your app list.
- Due to increasingly low usage, Math Input Panel is being removed. However, the input control and math recognition engine that powered the app is remaining as an optional feature titled "Math Recognizer" which can be installed via Settings > Apps > Apps & features and clicking "Optional features". So, while the app itself will no longer be there, the features it enabled for math equation input in OneNote, Excel, and elsewhere, will continue to work and developers can continue to utilize the input control.
And here's what's fixed:
- We fixed an issue where Surface Pro X devices would bugcheck when resuming from sleep.
- We fixed an issue where devices were experiencing hangs when Xbox controller were connected while shutting down, restarting, or entering sleep in recent Dev Channel builds.
- We fixed an issue leading to the About page of Settings not being present in the previous flight.
- We fixed an issue where the OS Info link on the Windows Update Settings page did not work.
- We fixed an issue resulting in some Settings search results unexpectedly being missing in recent flights.
- We fixed an issue where if you go to Settings > System > Power & Sleep it would crash Settings for some Insiders.
- We fixed an issue where the status information was not being displayed under Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update when you were up to date.
- We fixed an issue where the Chinese text for the lunar calendar in the clock and calendar flyout was not displaying properly in recent flights.
- We fixed an issue where it was unexpectedly possible to scroll the quick actions area of the Action Center when the region was collapsed.
- We fixed a bug affecting GPU Compute support in the Windows Subsystem for Linux. See this GitHub issue for reference.
- We fixed an issue where clipboard history might not update to display the latest entries.
- We fixed an issue where launching an app would dismiss the touch keyboard even though you'd used the taskbar button to manually invoke it.
- We fixed an issue resulting in gifs (via the touch keyboard or emoji panel) unexpectedly being inserted as a single image in certain apps.
- We fixed an issue where when using search to insert the red heart emoji from the touch keyboard or emoji panel, in certain apps upon insertion it would unexpectedly appear black, despite the app supporting colored emoji.
- We fixed an issue where when using the new dark mode for the Pinyin IME displayed tips would be unreadable due to having black text.
- We fixed an issue when typing with certain IMEs where Narrator wouldn't announce when you expanded or collapsed the displayed information in the candidate window.
- We fixed an issue where certain TV tuners no longer were no longer working.
- We fixed an issue that could result in your PC bugchecking when renaming a file or folder on an SD card.
- We fixed an issue where devices running Trend Micro software may randomly bugcheck.
- An issue has been fixed where devices with Bitdefender installed experienced a black screen and/or explorer.exe crashes. Resolving the issue requires an update to the Bitdefender software.
