Yesterday the new Insider Preview was released, downloaded it this morning on my one machine:
So what is new in this update?
- WSL Improvements.
- General overall performance improvements.
What have I noticed on this build?
On a positive note, the windows store is super fast on this build. Previous builds the store was very sluggish and took forever to download updates for apps.
- The general feel of opening apps etc. is great.
- Task View is not crashing like it did last time.
- Adding a new mail account text overlay is fixed.
The download and install took quite a while.
The fans on my machine went full blast and even after the reboot they stayed high. My virtual machine does not have that issue with cpu and memory spiking.
What I noticed is still not resolved:
- Control panel still reports Mail (Outlook 2016) but the machine is running Office 2019
- Notepad dark theme still not available.
- Office updates crashing from within the application.
- Disk cleanup menu request not available yet.
- Highlighting large files request not available yet.
I hope they will add the options suggested.
