Hello Windows Insiders, today we’re releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 19541 to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring.

 

Spoiler

General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC

  • We fixed an issue impacted System Settings reliability.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in Windows Update “Reboot needed” notifications persisting reboot.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in the update speed in Task Manager unexpectedly being set to Paused.
  • We fixed an issue when using Narrator that could result in Start not saying the correct index of an app in the all apps list.
  • We fixed an issue where the Search window wasn’t showing acrylic at the top.
  • We fixed an issue from the previous build resulting in the Feedback Hub unexpectedly not showing store apps in the list of contexts when logging feedback under the Apps category. This same issue resulted in the symptom of apps continuing to show Install in the Microsoft Store, rather than Launch, after the app had been installed.

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’re looking into reports of the update process hanging for extended periods of time when attempting to install a new build.
  • We’re looking into reports of certain external USB 3.0 drives not responding with Start Code 10 after they’re attached.
  • The Optimize Drives Control Panel is incorrectly reporting that optimization has never run on some devices. Optimization is completing successfully, even though it is not reflected in the UI.
  • The Documents section under Privacy has a broken icon (just a rectangle).
  • Remote Desktop Connection crashes when attempting to connect to multiple sessions.
  • Snipping isn’t working on secondary monitors.
  • Timeline isn’t showing any activities.
  • We’re investigating reports that Outlook search isn’t working for some Insiders.

Not much new features, I thought since it's been more than 20 days, we would have gotten something big like SETS but oh well, maybe next time

@HotCakeX These Insider Preview Builds through Fast Ring will be named as 20H2?

No they said that they are trying not to give a specific release date or build for the fast ring releases.

" Moving forward, the Fast ring will receive builds directly from this active development branch and new features will show up in these builds first. While features in the active development branch may be slated for a future Windows 10 release, they are no longer matched to a specific Windows 10 release. This means that builds from the active development branch simply reflect the latest work in progress code from our engineers. New features and OS improvements done in this branch during these development cycles will show up in future Windows 10 releases when they are ready. And we may deliver these new features and OS improvements as full OS build updates or servicing releases."
