Microsoft rolls two new versions for insiders who are using 19H2 in the slow ring – Build 18362.10012 & 18362.10013. The Company is currently shipping these updates with disabled features by default. Moreover, they can test enabling them through controlled feature rollouts. Doing so, they receive better feedback and thus can improve the overall build quality on upcoming releases.
The users who are currently on 19H2 Build 18362.1006 will receive the Build 18362.10013. By default, the new features are enabled if they switch to the new build. On the other hand, 19H2 Build 18362.10005 users will migrate to Build 18362.10012 and won’t get the new features turned on. However, they can enable these new attributes manually. The same condition applies to users having Windows 10 May 2019 Update and want to join the Slow ring.
Apart from the above two different initial set-ups, all the features discussed below remain the same on both builds. This newer version comprises enhancements from KB4505903 and the previous 19H2 update as well.
What’s new in 19H2 Build 18362.10012 & 18362.10013
Here are the key attributes that came along with this build for Windows Insiders in the Slow ring-
- Windows 10 users can now create an event right from their Calendar flyout available at the Taskbar. All you require is to tap on the Date and Time section. This will start the Calendar window where you can pick your specific date and type the details inside the text box. The company also allows users to set a particular time or location as well.
- Microsoft introduces new navigation pane on the Start Menu. This will auto-expand when you hover the mouse cursor over it.
- The team has rolled friendly images that categorize “banner” and “Action Center” separately. This is relevant only if you are trying to adjust the app’s notifications.
- The notifications will now have the new sorting criteria. This will display as most recently shown notification instead of simply the sender name. Windows 10 users can now sort the latest senders and configure them as well as per their likings. They can even mute the sound of a notification from a particular sender.
- Build 18362.10012 brings a new option that can configure and turn off notifications straight from an app or website notification. This is applicable to both “Banner” as well as “Action Center”
- Microsoft introduces a “Manage notifications” button at the top of “Action Center”. Its prime role is to launch the main “Notifications & actions” Settings page.
- The experts brought additional debugging capabilities for newer Intel processors. However, this is applicable only to a few hardware manufacturers.
- They have improved the battery life and power efficiency for certain processors on PCs.
- In general, a CPU comprises several “favored” cores. The Company introduces a new rotation policy under which work will be distributed among these cores more fairly.
That would be all. If you face any issue while using 19H2 Build 18362.10012, report the same using the Feedback section.
