A new update for Windows 10 is in the works, and Insiders are able to download a preview build 19640 now. While it isn’t a massive update by any means, it does deliver a couple of notable generable improvements that will still be welcomed by Windows 10 users.
The following is a list of the general changes and improvements:
- Based on feedback, if your Downloads folder is synced to a cloud provider, we are disabling the option to have Storage Sense automatically clear out your Downloads folder on a cycle.
- We updated our login logic, so if your PC is set up so you need to type in your username when logging in, accidentally starting your username with a space will no longer result in an error.
Of course, seeing as this is a preview build, there are undoubtedly going to be some issues. The following is a list of the issues that are currently known, though it’s possible that there are even more:
- We’re looking into an issue where some devices booting from eMMC storage bugchecked when resuming from hibernate.
- We’re looking into reports of the update process hanging for extended periods of time when attempting to install a new build.
- We’re working on fixing an issue for a future Insider Preview build where in Settings > Privacy, the Documents and Downloads sections show a broken icon next to their page name (just a rectangle).
- We’re looking into reports that taskbar preview thumbnails aren’t rendering consistently (showing a blank area).
You can find all of the details via the official blog post. It remains to be seen when this update will release for all users, but we’ll keep you posted as more information becomes available.
