Windows 10 build 17112 (from RS4) released to Insiders in the Fast Ring


Microsoft released a new preview build 17112, to the Windows Insiders in the fast ring. This build is from the Redstone 4 development branch and contains no new features rather than a bunch of fixes to make it ready for the next major release.

 

If you are a Windows Insider, check for updates to get the new builds. But before that, read the list of fixes and known issues in this build.

 

 

What's new in build 17112?

  • Fixed an issue where selecting a notification after taking a screenshot or game clip opened the Xbox app’s home screen instead of opening the screenshot or game clip.
  • Fixed an issue where EFI and Recovery partitions were unexpectedly listed in Defragment and Optimize Drives.
  • Fixed an issue optimizing drives in Defragment and Optimize Drives didn’t work in the last few flights.
  • Fixed an issue resulting in a permanently black window if you dragged a tab out of a Microsoft Edge window, pulled it up to the top edge of the screen, and moved it back down and released it.
  • Fixed an issue where the warning on Windows 10 S when trying to run non-Microsoft Store apps from File Explorer might end up stuck behind the File Explorer window.
  • Fixed an issue where there was some unexpected extra space in the File Explorer navigation pane before the chevron icons to expand/collapse folders.
  • Fixed an issue where if focus was set inside Action Center pressing Esc wouldn’t close the Action Center window.
  • Fixed an issue that could result in ShellExperienceHost periodically waking the device from hibernate if active live tiles were pinned to Start.
  • Fixed an issue where navigating to Settings | System | Focus Assist | Customize your priority list could crash Settings.

 

Known issues in build 17112

  • IMPORTANT: The Microsoft Store may be completely broken or disappeared altogether after upgrading to this build. Please see this forum post for details including a workaround on how to get the Microsoft Store back.
  • If you try to open a file that is available online-only from OneDrive that hasn’t been previously downloaded to your PC (marked with a green checkmark in File Explorer), your PC could bugcheck (GSOD). You can work around this problem by right-clicking on these files and selecting Always keep on this device. Any file-on-demand from OneDrive that is already downloaded to the PC should open fine.
  • Post-install at the first user-prompted reboot or shutdown, a small number of devices have experienced a scenario wherein the OS fails to load properly and may enter a reboot loop state. For affected PCs, turning off fast boot may bypass the issue. If not, it is necessary to create a bootable ISO on a USB drive, boot into recovery mode, and this this will allow bypass.
  • When Movies & TV user denies access to its videos library (through the Let Movies & TV access your videos library? popup window or through Windows privacy settings), Movies & TV crashes when the user navigates to the “Personal” tab.
