What’s new in Windows 10 Build 19023 20H1

Other updates for Insiders

Microsoft expert team is conducting an experiment that runs through November 25 related to how the company delivers driver update through Windows Update. According to the software giant, Windows Insiders running build 18980 or newer will not have optional driver updates automatically delivered through this section. Furthermore, to install optional driver updates during this period, you’ll have to manually download them through the “Optional Updates” portion of Windows Update. Additionally, it is also expected to finalize the update sometime in December 2019, and future releases after it’s complete will likely include fixes and small improvements.

General improvements and fixes – 20H1 Build 19023

  • With this update, the company settled down an issue where, if a build attempted to download and install before you had completed the first login of a prior install (such as Build 19013), you would experience a 2-hour window before you could install this new build.
  • While playing a video, now you will not struggle with an issue resulting in a lag processing input.
  • Microsoft team resolved an issue where the quick action region in the Action Center was somewhat off-center in the last few builds.
  • The company rectified an issue that could result in Cortana’s voice activation setting. In the earlier flight, this setting switches from on back to off. This issue mainly occurs when you relaunch the explorer.exe, or if you rebooted your device.
  • Windows 10 team confirmed that the Downloads folder is no longer available in the Disk Cleanup application. However, if you prefer having this option, it’s still available via Storage Settings.

Known issues

  1. Microsoft team identified an issue hindering Sandbox and WDAG from working. If you trust on these features, you may consider pausing updates prior to taking this build. The company is working hard to get another flight out with the fix as quickly as possible.
  2. Both the BattlEye and the team have found incompatibility issues. It is because of the changes in the OS between some Insider Preview build and certain versions of BattlEye anti-cheat software. The team has implemented a compatibility hold on the affected devices from being offered affected builds of Windows Insider Preview. This is mainly to protect users who might have these versions installed on their device.
  3. For a few Insiders, yet the Settings folder isn’t accessible outside of launching via the URI (ms-settings:). However, the company is still investigating.
  4. As per the expert team, the same driver is still showing as available for install after successfully installing printer drivers from the Optional Updates section. However, the company is looking into the issue.
  5. Several users claimed to have struggling fingerprint readers which are not working as of Build 19013. If you’re one of them, for now, you’ll need to log in with a password instead.
