    Windows 10 build 16362 discussion (Redstone 4, Fast)
    WC: https://www.windowscentral.com/windows-10-build-16362
    MS: https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexp...pc-skip-ahead/

    New/Fixed on PC:
    • Improved Boot Experience
    • Use sign-in info to apply settings after a restart or update:*Building on our work*seen in Build 16251, if you stay on the lock screen for a few seconds before signing in, you will now see your lock screen personalization (such as Windows Spotlight, and/or status information from Cortana, Calendar, Mail, and more). As always, you can customize your lock screen experience using the settings listed under Settings > Personalization > Lock screen. Note: The feature is only available on PCs that are not managed by enterprises. This includes home PCs that are sync’d to enterprise (work, school, etc.) email.
    • Narrator Improvements
    • You can now select the desired audio channel for Narrator speech output!*Simply go to Settings > Ease of Access > Narrator and you’ll find a new option to do this at the top of the “Sounds you hear” section
    • Windows Shell Improvements
    • We fixed an issue where minimized app windows on mixed-DPI monitor setups might end up drawing offscreen after your PC resumed from sleep.
    • We fixed an issue where if you changed your display language preference to something other than the machine’s default then any app which did not take an update while also getting the updated language resource package from the Store would end up continuing to display its tile in Start in that default language rather than the new language displayed within the app and other system UI.
    • We’ve updated the Action Center to now use “AM” / “PM” when indicating timestamp with the 12hr clock format, rather than “a” / “p”.
    • We fixed an issue where using the letters in Start to jump to different locations in the alphabet wasn’t consistently working in the last few flights.
    • We fixed an issue where when the People button was present in taskbar, and toast-only banners (for example from Outlook 2016) were sent, the Action Center badge counter would become inaccurate.
    • Microsoft Edge Improvements
    • We fixed an issue resulting in multiple apps crashing in the previous flight if you tried to log into the app using Facebook.
    • We fixed an issue where pasting an image to Imgur.com from your clipboard wouldn’t work.
    • We fixed an issue which could result in uploads failing on some sites, such as Behance.net.
    • We fixed an issue resulting in drag and drop onto websites intermittently not working.
    • We fixed an issue where Microsoft Edge would crash after choosing to pin certain websites to Start.
    • We fixed an issue where a tab could get in a state where it displayed a tab preview thumbnail even though your mouse wasn’t hovering over the tab.
    • We fixed an issue where website tooltips could end up displaying behind the Microsoft Edge window after opening a link in new tab in the background.
    • We fixed an issue for certain websites where after watching an embedded video full screen then using Esc to return to the page would result in the video controller no longer being visible.
    • We’ve updated editable fields in PDFs to now have a subtle color to help indicate that they’re editable.
    • Gaming Improvements
    • We fixed an issue resulting in Ghost Recon: Wildlands not starting in recent flights since the Easy anti-cheat component wouldn’t load.
    • We fixed an issue resulting in Train Simulator 2017 failing to launch on recent flights.
    • Input Improvements
    • We fixed an issue where the Pinyin IME’s emoji picker wouldn’t load in recent flights.
    • We fixed an issue where the Emoji Panel’s tooltips could become mixed up.
    • We fixed an issue from recent flights resulting in precision touchpads potentially dropping gestures after coming out of sleep.
    • We’ve made some adjustments to address an issue resulting in sudden and brief CPU spikes where you couldn’t move your mouse. If you’ve encountered this, please try it in this new build and let us know if your experience has improved.
    • We fixed an issue where when using the Chinese (Simplified) handwriting panel InputPersonalization.exe could get into a state where it would unexpectedly have a continually high CPU usage.
    • General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC
    • We’ve updated the Run dialog so when hold Ctrl + Shift then click OK or press enter, it will run that task or program elevated, just like how it works in Cortana.
    • We fixed an issue where the Windows Defender Security Center app icon was missing in taskbar when the app was open, as well in Start’s all apps list. You will also notice that the icon is now un-plated in the taskbar.
    • We fixed the issue where USBhub.sys was causing spontaneous reboots due to bugchecks (GSOD).
    • We fixed an issue where the battery flyout might incorrectly show “PC not charging” while the device was changing in recent builds.
    • We fixed an issue where fonts using shortcuts would become unusable and disappear from the Fonts folder.
    • We fixed an issue where upgrading to recent flights would fail if you had a speech for a secondary language installed.
    • We fixed an issue from recent flights resulting in some Insiders experiencing an issue where Store apps would begin to fail to activate after being launched a few times.
    • We fixed an issue where your PC might not go to sleep automatically after remoting into it and signing out of the remote session.


    Broken on PC:
    • ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


    This build and version is the latest Redstone 4 build in testing for Desktop Insiders on the Fast Ring.

    Issues? Bugs? Solutions? For all things Windows 10 build 16362, discuss it here.

    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

    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.

    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.

    @Adrian Frej, are your settings in Windows Insider set to "Skip Ahead"? If not it won't download.

    I'm having the same issue on a Lenovo Twist. I have two machines (one at home and one at work) in the skip ahead ring. The i5 Intel NUC at work loaded 16362.1000 fine. The twist just reboots and rolls back. I'd call it a green screen but the only part of my screen that flashes green is the square behind the spinning dots. This makes me think it's an issue with the video chipset. The twist has Intel HD 4000 the NUC is newer with the Intel HD5500. Suggestion will be appreciated.
