Microsoft today is releasing Windows 10 build 20215 to Insiders in the Dev Channel. This release follows up last week’s build 20211. There isn’t much in the way of new front-facing features in today’s new build. But it does include a list of fixes and improvements. Here’s a look at what you can expect with today’s most recent Insider release.
Windows 10 Build 20215
A new feature included in today’s build is Windows 10 Search supports the dark theme. “For Insiders who have their system theme set to dark, we are introducing dark theme search results for the Windows 10 search experience on the taskbar.
This server-side change is rolling out to all Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel. This change will make the transition between Start and search results easier on the eyes now that both support dark theme,” writes Microsoft exec Brandon LeBlanc.
Here is the list of fixes contained in today’s latest release:
- We fixed an issue that could result in the Windows Security app hanging.
- We fixed an issue that could result in the Windows Security app crashing when navigating to the Exclusions page when there were a large number of exclusions.
- We fixed an issue where using a restore point that had been created prior to a Microsoft Edge update to do a system restore could result in Microsoft Edge not launching after the restore was finished.
- We fixed an issue resulting in the text cursor unexpectedly moving to the beginning of a text field when typing with the Korean IME in certain apps.
- We fixed an issue impacting Voice Typing reliability.
- We’ve fixed an issue where on a small subset of devices the Start menu did not reflect when an update was pending restart and scheduled restarts are cancelled.
Keep in mind that Insider builds are meant for coders, IT admins, and Windows 10 enthusiasts who want to test new features and submit feedback to Microsoft.
These builds are not meant for inexperienced users. They are also not meant to run on your primary production machine. Insider builds contain many known stability issues that can cause your system to become unstable or even crash.
