Here’s what’s fixed, improved, and still broken in Windows 10 build 19592

Today, Microsoft released Windows 10 Insider Preview build 19592, and as usual, there isn't much in the way of new features. It just introduces some new UI elements for tablet, which are different from tablet mode. This was actually already introduced a while back, but it's coming back.

As always though, there are a whole bunch of fixes, improvements, and known issues in the build. There's one item under general changes and improvements:

  • The Windows Search Platform (Indexer) has been updated with improved logic to help find better times to perform indexing of your files and avoiding heavily indexing while you are using your machine. An improvement was also made to significantly limit the amount of times the service indexes your files for content that doesn’t have an impact on search experiences, and gives you a better experience on Windows.

Here's the full list of fixes:

  • We’ve fixed the issue causing ARM devices to receive a bugcheck and have removed the block with this build.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in the Optional Features page in Settings appearing blank.
  • We’ve fixed an issue where, when running corruption repair (DISM), the process stopped at 84.9%.
  • We fixed an issue where, after successfully completing installation of an update and rebooting the device, the Start menu Shutdown button still showed Update and Shutdown and Update and Restart.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in Windows updates failing with error 0x80070003.
  • We fixed an issue that could sometimes result in Settings crashing when pausing updates or the Windows Update settings page not loading.
  • We fixed an issue from the previous flight that was resulting in extra lines appearing in the taskbar jumplist.
  • We fixed in an issue resulting in a black window, with only a mouse being visible to others, when sharing a single app over Microsoft Teams.

Finally, here are the known issues:

  • BattlEye and Microsoft have found incompatibility issues due to changes in the operating system between some Insider Preview builds and certain versions of BattlEye anti-cheat software. To safeguard Insiders who might have these versions installed on their PC, we have applied a compatibility hold on these devices from being offered affected builds of Windows Insider Preview. See this article for details.
  • We are aware Narrator and NVDA users that seek the latest release of Microsoft Edge based on Chromium may experience some difficulty when navigating and reading certain web content. Narrator, NVDA and the Edge teams are aware of these issues. Users of legacy Microsoft Edge will not be affected. NVAccess has released a NVDA 2019.3 that resolves the known issue with Edge.
  • We’re looking into reports of the update process hanging for extended periods of time when attempting to install a new build.
  • Some devices may experience a bugcheck (GSOD) during the reboot to install this update. If this happens, log in, schedule a time for the update to install, and then log off all user profiles before the scheduled install time. The install will then proceed as expected.
  • The Documents section under Privacy has a broken icon (just a rectangle).
  • When trying to use Win + PrtScn to capture a screenshot, the image is not saved to the Screenshots directory. For now, you’ll need to use one of the other options for taking screenshots, such as WIN + Shift + S.
  • Sticky Notes windows can’t be moved. As a workaround, when you set focus to Sticky Notes, press Alt + Space. This will bring up a menu that contains a Move option. Select it, then use either the arrow keys or the mouse to move the window.
  • We’re looking into reports of some Insiders receiving driver compatibility warnings when attempting to update to a newer build in certain virtual environments.

Note that the issue with anti-cheat software isn't going to be fixed in the OS. Since it relies on a third party fixing its own software, and this issue has been around for so long, it's presumably going to stay on the list forever.

As always, you can gran today's build via Windows Update. If you're not on the Fast ring yet, you can enroll through the Windows Insider Program tab in Settings.
