Changes and Improvements

Microsoft started rolling out an update to the converged clipboard history design ( WIN + V ) to support pinning, unpinning, deleting, and syncing individual entries. If you have installed this build, Microsoft wants you to test this improvement and share your feedback in the Feedback Hub under "Input and Language" > "Clipboard".

 

The other improvement in this build is the ability to manage and create Storage Spaces from within the Settings app. This feature is now rolling out to all Windows 10 Insiders in the Dev Channel. If you have any feedback as you explore the changes, please file it under "Files, Folders, and Online Storage" > "Storage spaces" in the Feedback Hub.

  • Microsoft fixed an issue from the previous flight where Xbox Game Bar was launching on its own for certain games, without pressing WIN + G.
  • Microsoft fixed an issue where when the Xbox Game Bar was launched (like when pressing WIN + G), the PC might appear unresponsive.
  • Microsoft fixed an issue resulting in the Program Compatibility Assistant sometimes unexpectedly taking up a large amount of CPU resources in the last few flights.
  • Microsoft also fixed an issue that could result in explorer.exe hanging when mounting ISOs.
  • Other than that, Microsoft fixed an issue where the Windows Security app might show both a check for updates button and link at the same time.
  • Microsoft also fixed an issue causing some Insiders to experience rendering / graphic issues after resizing certain app windows.
  • Installing this build will restore x64 emulation on ARM64 if it had previously broken after installing Build 21292.1010.
