Here's what's been fixed and what's broken in Windows 10 build 14951 | Windows Central

Too many new things as mentioned above...

What's fixed for PC

  1. We fixed the issue causing PCs that are capable of Connected Standby such as the Surface Book and Surface Pro 4 to sometimes bugcheck (bluescreen) while in Connected Standby.
  2. We fixed an issue resulting in Forza Horizon 3, Gears of War (and some 3rd party games) failing to install from the Store with the error code 0x80073cf9 when the system?s app install location was set to drive with native 4k Sectors (or 4k sector sized drive).
  3. We fixed an issue resulting in larger Store games such as ReCore, Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3, Killer Instinct and Rise of the Tomb Raider possibly failing to launch.
  4. We fixed an issue where the console window (which hosts Command Prompt, PowerShell, and other command-line utilities) might not snap correctly to the inside edges between two monitors with different DPI scaling.
  5. We fixed an issue where all agenda items in the taskbar?s Clock and Calendar flyout were using the primary calendar?s color, rather than matching their respective calendar?s colors as selected in the Outlook Calendar app.
  6. We fixed issue where the Add PIN button in Settings > Accounts > Sign-in Options was sometimes unexpectedly greyed out for domain-joined devices.
  7. We fixed an issue resulting in Groove crashing if you tried to reorder the songs in a very large playlist.
  8. We?ve updated our migration logic to now include custom scan code mappings. That means that going forward from this build, if you?ve used Registry Editor to remap certain keys (for example, Caps Lock key to null), that change will persist across upgrades.
  9. We fixed an issue Insiders may have experienced resulting in Adobe Photoshop Express crashing after clicking on the ?correct? button when trying to edit a cropped image.
  10. We fixed an issue resulting in .csv or .xlsx files downloaded from Microsoft Edge sometimes unexpectedly appearing to be locked for editing by ?another user? when SmartScreen was enabled.
  11. We fixed an issue where enabling the RemoteFX adaptor for a Virtual Machine would result in it failing to power on with the error ?Unspecified error? (0x80004005).

What's broken on PC

  1. Signing into apps such as Feedback Hub, Groove, MSN News, etc. with your Microsoft Account if you sign out or get signed out of these apps will not work. If this happens to you and you cannot sign in to Feedback Hub, you can send us feedback via the forums.
  2. You may experience a crash while using the protractor in Sketchpad ? we?re working on a fix.
  3. If you have a 3rd party antivirus product installed on your PC ? your PC might not be able to complete the update to this build and roll-back to the previous build.

This build and version is the latest Redstone 2 build in testing for Desktop Insiders on the Fast Ring.

[TIP]Basic tip

If you're having any issues with your device, try a reset.

Settings > Update & security > Recovery > Reset this PC > This provides you with two options: 1. keep my files and 2. remove everything[/TIP]

[TIP]Keep my files

Does just as its name describes. If you choose the setting you can reinstall Windows 10 without having to back up any of the pictures, videos, music and documents that you have stored on it. You absolutely should back up these things just in case, but you shouldn?t need to use that back up. Keep My Files requires a certain amount of free space on your device. As such, it may be unavailable to you if your device is stuffed with a lot of files. If you get an error message asking for more storage when you choose this option you?ll need to back up your files and choose the remove everything option. You could also delete any files that you aren?t using on your device and try the option again. This option will take longer than the other options.[/TIP]

[TIP]Remove Everything

Deletes every file, every setting from your device and gives you a blank copy of Windows 10 to work with. You?ll need to add any files you have backed up to your device again [/TIP]
