Bugs and quirks[edit | edit source]

Shell[edit | edit source]

The hidden icons flyout on the taskbar may disappear completely in some cases. Restarting explorer.exe may solve this issue.

Task Manager[edit | edit source]

Enabling Efficiency mode from the command bar may cause the process list to fluctuate between the Apps and Background groups in the Processes page. To bypass this issue, use the right-clicking context menu to enable or disable Efficiency mode then close and re-open Task Manager.

Widgets[edit | edit source]

The Widgets panel may not load as expected when using the swipe from left edge of screen touch motion.

Live captions[edit | edit source]

  • Certain apps in full screen (e.g., video players) may prevent live captions from being visible.
  • Certain apps positioned near the top of the screen and closed before live captions is run may re-launch behind the live captions window positioned at top.

Safe mode[edit | edit source]

  • Quick Settings and date/time clock on the taskbar may be missing due to the Capability Access Manager Service service not running.
  • Clicking Bluetooth & devices and Personalization pages may crash the Settings app due to an overrun of a stack-based buffer 0xc0000409.
