Microsoft Finally Fixes Windows 10 19H2 Bugs And Details Key New Features
Microsoft is rolling out the latest build of the Windows 10 19H2 preview to everyone in the Slow ring. This is 19H2 Build 18362.10019, and the software maker says that all Windows Insiders in the Slow ring will now be on the same build. Previously, some Slow ring Windows Insiders received Build 18362.10014 with 19H2 features turned off by default. That update was pushed out to some on August 19th.
On that same date, some Insiders received Build 18362.10015 with 19H2 features turned on by default. All Insiders, no matter the version they are on now, will receive Build 18362.10019 and all new features will be turned on. Windows users who are just now joining the Slow ring will get the latest 18362.10019 build. Rolling the update out to all Slow ring insiders is a big deal as only 10% of Insiders got to test the new features last time.
A few of the update features that will be turned on for all users are listed below:
- Microsoft now allows third-party digital assistants to voice activate above the Lock screen.
- Users can now create an event straight from the Calendar flyout on the Taskbar. Microsoft says users can click on the date and time at the lower right corner of the Taskbar to open the Calendar flyout. Users can then pick the desired date and start typing in the text box. Inline options to set a time and location are now part of the calendar.
- The navigation pane on the Start menu now expands when you hover over it with your mouse to better inform where clicking goes.
- Microsoft has enabled the ability for enterprises to supplement the Windows 10 in S Mode policy to allow traditional Win32 (desktop) apps from Microsoft Intune.
Microsoft says that the update also includes general improvements for all of the features. The full list of new features in the update can be seen here. The first Windows 10 19H2 Insider Preview build was released on July 2nd.
