In addition, there's a handful of new features and known issues included in this build. Here's a look.

General changes, improvements, and fixes

  • The build watermark at the lower right-hand corner of the desktop is no longer present in this build.This doesn't mean we're done…
  • We fixed an issue resulting in an increased number of Insiders experiencing rollbacks (error code 0xc1900101) when upgrading to recent builds.
  • We fixed an issue from recent builds that could result in a crash when trying to log into a secondary account on your device.
  • We fixed an issue when using the Japanese IME in certain Office apps that could result in the candidate window not appearing when using reconversion.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in win32 apps experiencing an unexpected increase in CPU usage if left idle after having opened the Common File Dialog.

Known issues

  • BattlEye and Microsoft have found incompatibility issues due to changes in the operating system between some Insider Preview builds and certain versions of BattlEye anti-cheat software. To safeguard Insiders who might have these versions installed on their PC, we have applied a compatibility hold on these devices from being offered affected builds of Windows Insider Preview.
  • We're looking into reports of the update process hanging for extended periods of time when attempting to install a new build.
  • We're looking into reports of certain external USB 3.0 drives not responding with Start Code 10 after they're attached.
  • We're looking into reports of the Optimize Drives Control Panel incorrectly reporting that optimization has never run on some devices.

If you're enrolled in the Fast or Slow Insider rings, you can grab build 19041.1 now via Windows Update. Otherwise, you can go into more detail with this update with Microsoft's full release notes.
