Windows 10 October 2018 Update build 17763.104 hits Slow and Release Preview Insider rings

Microsoft today began rolling out Windows 10 October 2018 Update build 17763.104 to Insiders on both the Slow and Release Preview rings. This update is a cumulative one, correcting a handful off issues that still remain present in the October 2018 Update as Microsoft prepares to rerelease the update to the public.

Here's a look at all of what's been fixed:

  • We have fixed the issue where the incorrect details were being shown in Task Manager under the "Processes" tab.
  • We fixed an issue where in certain cases IME would not work in the first process of a Microsoft Edge user session.
  • We fixed an issue where in some cases applications would become unresponsive after resuming from Connected Standby.
  • We fixed several issues causing application compatibility problems with 3rd-party antivirus and virtualization products.
  • We fixed several issues with driver compatibility.

Microsoft will keep hunting for bugs with Insiders before shipping the October 2018 Update back out to the public. It's possible that build 17763.104 could be the release build, but we could see further updates on the Insider rings if more show-stopping bugs are found.

  • Nothing on the known folder deletion bug?
  • That was addressed a week ago for Insiders.
  • I missed that. Oops!
  • Already fixed in last week's update
  • How are Task View animations on this build? That's the main thing keeping me on 1803 because I see them many times a day and they are too broken currently. Any improvement?
  • Task manager has been fixed to. no blinking
  • It appears the problem is larger than previously thought!
  • This did not work for me. I don’t have dual accounts, so #2 was the only option. The shift-Restart item was not on my menu, however. I had “Update and shutdown” and “Update and Restart”. Trying the latter now... Updates started but locked up at 30%. And I mean LOCKED. The machine is totally unresponsive, the caps lock key won’t even toggle the indicator now. Sooooooooo tired of these broken updates. Unix anyone?
  • Maybe you should not be part of the insider program then. This would reduce your chances of bad updates greatly.
  • At this rate it will be the November Update
  • Then you don't install it.
  • Why wouldn't I? I'm waiting for the new ISO to be released then I'm clean installing
  • then you keep wait for it
  • lol correct . seems like MS has no quality coders

  • agreed
  • after the release of avengers infinity war 2
  • Will all Windows 10 PC now support Wake from Sleep using "Hey Cortana".
    I asked Best Buy and they said it is a modern standby feature in Windows 10.
    Is that accurate ?
  • MS is out of quality coders.
  • Where do you find these wallpapers? They're gorgeous.
