Windows 10 Build 10586 rolls out to the Fast Ring of Insiders and here’s what they fixed in it

A few days ago, we reported that Microsoft’s Gabe Aul had hinted that the company would be releasing a new build of Windows 10 to the Insider Program.

And the Redmond company did not disappoint.

Microsoft has officially rolled out Windows 10 Build 10586 out to the Fast Ring of Insiders. But the important thing to note here, is that even though the version has been bumped by 10, there are no new features in the build at all. Nope, zero, zilch, nada.

All that the new build bring is big fixes, nothing more. But this isn’t really a bad thing. In fact, the lack of new features and the presence of bug fixes, hints that Microsoft could be releasing Build 10586 as the Fall Update or Threshold 2 Update for all users running the general availability build, 10240 RTM, next week.

We reported about this happening a few days ago, when a Microsoft Support Engineer, announced at the Redmond Company’s official forums that the new Build would be released along with support for Cortana in India, on November 10th.

So, let’s take a look at what has been fixed in Windows 10 Build 10586:

1. The bug which caused the volume to drop by 75% for a certain time, when a media file was played with the Groove music app or the Movies & TV app has been fixed. This issue only occured when a notification popped up in the notification center.

2. Surface Pro 3 devices will no longer shut down, when the power button is pressed, and should now go to sleep as intended.

3. The flashing disksnapshot.exe command prompt window bug which appeared randomly has been fixed.

4. Windows 10 now remembers the prefereed login type on the device (eg: Password or PIN).

5. Missing or black Tab previews in Microsoft Edge has been fixed. This also applies to note clippings on the web.

6. Dell Venue 8 Pro and similar small devices, with rotation or virtual mode screen size set larger than the physical display size will no longer have issues with OS upgrades. Prior to this fix, when the devices were trying to upgrade, they would run into a Blue screen of death and roll back to the previous build.

7. Issues related to downloading content (Apps, Games) from the Windows Store has been fixed.

There you go, as I said before, it is just a performance fixing build. And since the build was only released to the Fast ring, there is no official ISO to download and upgrade yet. But I believe Microsoft would be releasing the ISO next week, when the Build is pushed out to all users as the Threshold 2 Update.
