Windows 10 Build 10547 Known Issues Settings Update

We have already posted an in depth article, about the official bug fixes on the newest preview build of the operating system.

Well, the Insider Program is all about testing bugs and reporting them to the Redmond company, which fixes the issues. That being said, here is the official list of known issues in the latest build.

Oh, and there are a couple of really annoying bugs here, so be prepared for it, before you decide to upgrade.

Windows 10 Build 10547 Known Issues

Language Packs aren’t available yet:

First of all, this could well be the most annoying issue here, Microsoft has not published the languages packs for all languages. The English Language pack is available already. But the good news is that it will be releasing it as soon as possible, through out the day. This is likely a way to help reduce the load of its update servers, which is likely a wise move, considering that the Insider Program boasts over 7 Million users.

Windows Store app updates:

Microsoft says that updates for Windows Store apps may not be downloaded automatically. it has suggested that users should enable the auto update option from the Store app. You can follow our guide to disable/enable that, and yes Home Edition users, you can toggle auto updates for Store apps too, as we reported recently.

Notepad – Command prompt error:

If you are a power user who uses command line to open files, you will be annoyed to know that you cannot open text files directly. Attempting to doing so ends up with a permission error. Microsoft says this issue will be fixed in a future build, obviously it can’t be done through a Windows Update.

The workarounds recommended by the company are:

A. Open the file with a complete file path for e.g: C:\File.txt.

B. Use Notepad’s GUI to open the files e.g: File > Open > C Drive > File.txt

Fly-outs not working:

Windows 10 has had concurrent issues with taskbar/system tray fly-outs (pop-ups which open when you click on an icon). Build 10547 suffers from a similar issue in that,clicking on the system icons in the notification area quickly may block the launch of the fly-outs like Audio, Networking, etc.

This issue does not have a workaround sadly, and the only option you have is to reboot the PC.

Ignore the warning in Settings app:  

The Settings app in Build 10547 displays a warning message under the following tab: Update & Security > Windows Update. Microsoft says that this error is safe to ignore. The company is working on ironing out issues whuch may cause the detection of new builds to fail
