Windows 10 Build 10565 – A list of the bugs fixed and known issues
Windows 10 Build 10565 was released earlier today, and it brought in a slew of new features.
But what about the changes under the hood? That’s what we’re here to discuss.
Build 10565 fixed quite a few bugs, here’s a list of those fixes:
In the previous Insider Preview Build, an error used to pop up in the Settigs App, under the Update & Security > Windows Update tab. The error was related to changing the ring settings (Fast or Slow) for getting the preview builds, but the issue was that the error popped up even when the user hadn’t switched rings.
Audio playback works in the background, when apps such as the built in music player, Groove is minimized. Previously builds broke this functionality.
Fly-out issues have been fixed (yet again). Clicking on the sytem tray icons, no longer causes the Windows Shell to break the pop-up which is expected to appear. This issue actually has been quite persistently appearing in preview builds, and has been fixed multiple times.
Microsoft says it changed the Context Menu’s to be more mouse friendly, as Insiders had complained that some of the menus were too big for mouse. This seems like a rather odd change, but we have not come across such unusable menus, so we can’t really comment on it.
The People App now allows users to pin contacts to the Start menu, for quick access. Speaking of pinning content, the apps pinned to the taskbar should no longer have a duplicate icon, this issue only affected a few apps.
The desktop’s context menu option (View > Display desktop icons), which was broken in the previous build, now works correctly.
The issue which prevented auto updates for Windows Store Apps, has also been fixed.
Known Issues in Windows 10 Build 10565
It wouldn’t be Windows without a few bugs, would it? Then again, this is a preview build and bugs are expected, that is the whole purpose of these test versions.
Cortana and Search has a major issue in that the search box does not work, if the digital personal assistant’s service is not available in your region. Unfortunately there is no workaround for this from Microsoft, but perhaps you could try disabling Cortana?
The Xbox app for Windows 10, touted as one of the key features in the operating system, apparently is consuming more RAM than it should, and that’s in the gigabytes range. A simple workaround for this bug, is to close the Xbox app.
Support for video coding formats WebM and VP9 have been suspended from Windows 10, but the latter is expected to make a comeback in the future.
Tablet devices such as the Dell Venue 8 Pro which are set to use a rotation or virtual display size higher than the device’s screen size will run into the dreaded bluescreen of death when trying to upgrade the device to the latest build, and as a result of which the tablet will automatically roll back to the previous build it was running.
