Changes[edit | edit source]

  • Changed Cortana's animations in OOBE.
  • A dialog has been added when Adobe Flash content is blocked in Microsoft Edge. It is located in the URL bar.
  • When reading a locally saved EPUB book in Microsoft Edge, A book icon is used in place of the previous generic icon.
  • If you switch pages while an EPUB book is being read, the reader will jump to the specified page.
  • If you've changed the read aloud settings when reading an EPUB in Microsoft Edge, the settings you chose will now be preserved for other e-books that are opened afterwards.
  • Removed the watermark and timebomb temporarily.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • Some machines may still experience constant crashes with the Spectrum.exe service, causing PCs to lose audio, disk I/O usage to become very high, and apps like Microsoft Edge to become unresponsive when doing certain actions. To fix this, stop the Spectrum service, navigate to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Spectrum, delete the PersistedSpatialAnchors folder and reboot.
  • Some games might minimize to the taskbar when launched.
  • Microsoft Edge F12 tools may intermittently crash, hang, and fail to accept inputs.
  • The icon for the Windows Insider Program under Settings → "Update & security" is shown as a square instead of its usual icon.
  • Windows Hello authentication may not work on some Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book devices.
  • Microsoft Edge and/or the taskbar may randomly stop responding. If that happens, open Task Manager via Ctrl+⇧ Shift+Esc and close Microsoft Edge and restarting Explorer.exe.
