Windows 10 preview build 17115 rolls out to Slow ring Insiders

Windows Insiders on the Slow ring haven't seen a new build release in some time, but the wait is now over. Microsoft today announced that WIndows 10 preview build 17115 is now rolling out to Slow ring Insiders, bringing a bevy of general changes and fixes, along with a new setup experience for privacy settings, and more.

Here's a recap of what's new in Windows 10 build 17115:

What's New

A new privacy settings layout in the set up experience

  • This spring, we will release an update to Windows 10 that will include changes to the set up experience for privacy settings. This new design conveys focused information to help our customers make focused choices about their privacy and offers two new settings for Inking & Typing and Find my device. More details about the change can be found in this blog post here.

General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC

  • We fixed an issue where If you tried to open a file that was available online-only from OneDrive that hadn't been previously downloaded to your PC (marked with a green checkmark in File Explorer), your PC could bugcheck (GSOD).
  • We fixed an issue where post-install at the first user-prompted reboot or shutdown, a small number of devices experienced a scenario wherein the OS fails to load properly and might have entered a reboot loop state.
  • We fixed an issue where the Microsoft Store might be completely broken or gone altogether after upgrading.
  • We fixed an issue where when you denied Movies & TV access to your videos library (through the "Let Movies & TV access your videos library?" popup window or through Windows privacy settings), Movies & TV would crash when you navigated to the "Personal" tab.
  • We fixed two issues impacting the usability of Windows Mixed Reality on the previous build (Windows Mixed Reality running at a very low frame rate (8-10fps), and a potential crash at startup that could cause Windows Mixed Reality to not work).
  • We fixed an issue from recent flights resulting the Direct Messages section of Twitter.com potentially not rendering in Microsoft Edge.
  • We fixed an issue from recent flights causing precision touchpads to periodically need a few tries to be able to move the mouse.
  • We fixed an issue impacting the Italian touch keyboard layout where the period key would act as a delete key in UWP apps.
  • We fixed an issue impacting the Czech touch keyboard layout where numbers on the &123 view couldn't be inserted into UWP apps.
  • We fixed an issue where you couldn't use touch to interact with the Timeline scrollbar.
  • We fixed an issue where a failed app update could result in that app becoming unpinned from the taskbar.
  • We fixed an issue where the controls in the Focus Assist Settings subpages didn't have accessible labels.
  • We fixed an issue from the last few flights where after launching, minimizing, then closing UWP apps enough times, you would stop being able to launch UWP apps.

Known issues

  • There are currently no known issues for this flight however if any issues are discovered based off Insider feedback, we'll add them here.

Build 17115 first rolled out to Fast ring Insiders earlier this week, so the jump to the Slow ring came pretty quickly. For those looking to do a clean install, Microsoft says it is hoping to make an ISO available for build 17115 "early next week." For now, Slow ring Insiders should be able to grab this build now via Windows Update.

  • Yessss!
  • Does anyone have an issue with notifications, or rather with the lack of them? I'm not getting any in messenger or Twitter.
  • Check your focus hours to see if its turned on.
  • What a horrible name. These are the hours I want to focus on stuff so please don't disturb me. i.e. Do not disturb. That and it makes me think of focused inbox, which I consider an abomination. I don't begrudge people who like it, I just can't stand it and am irritated every time I have to go turn it off on each mailbox individualy. 
  • Wonder, how do you find your movie or music festa ticket days or months later? Search or hit the Focus button to get it?
  • It's off
  • Received and installed it on my laptop. I thought I was in the Release preview? But that ring doesn't exist anymore?
  • The Release Preview does exist but only if you select "Just give me updates early" if you select the "Next version of Windows" you get a choice of Fast or Slow but no Release Preview.
  • That's what I'm on, but still received it. And installed it, looks good. Version 1803 build 17115.1
  • the release ring is mostly faster app update/drivers there are occasionally builds
  • On this build everytime I put my pc in standby, applications get closed as for a shutdown (Windows knows this and tells me there was an error). Anyone with the same issue?
  • i am unable to install amd display driver
  • Nice! Time for me to finally try one of the new RS4 builds on my SP4 and SP3! Too bad they aren't updating Windows phone anymore, my 950 XL needs some love :/
