Like the feature-packed Insider Build 14327 that was released for Mobile recently, Microsoft pushed out a newer Insider Build 14328 that also brings a whole lot of features to PCs. There aren't any major changes to the Mobile Build 14328 though.
So let's look at what's new on the PC side with this Build 14328:
Updated Start Menu: Microsoft tweaked the Start Menu in this Build, you now have instant access to the App's list. This also affects how the start menu behaves when in tablet mode. A requested feature that has been asked by Insiders fr a while now is the ability to auto-hide the taskbar in tablet mode, that feature is now introduced in this build.
Cortana in Lockscreen:
A feature that was demo'ed during this year's Microsoft Build event is now available. from the lock screen, you can activate Cortana and use her as your digital assistant even without unlocking your screen.
In addition, setting reminders with Cortana has been improved, you can add images to your reminders too. Also, Cortana will now remind you when your Windows Phone battery is low, she can help you find your phone too and you can now share map directions from your PC to your phone via Cortana.
Lastly, Cortana's notifications/reminders now show up in the notification center!
Speaking, of the notifications center, it has been visually improved on. No more duplicated app icons, notifications are now grouped under each app.
Enhanced Search: When you search for files on your PC, files from your OneDrive are now included and you can filter between different file types (Music, Documents, Pictures...)
Improved quick action buttons customizations: You can now easily customize the positions of quick action buttons from its settings page.
The WiFi quick action button now takes you to the "Wireless Networks available" settings page. Previously, when pressed it would toggle your WiFi on or off. There is a lot of debate over this feature though, especially since we already have Network icon on the taskbar that already shows you the list of wireless networks.
The taskbar also received various new features and improvements.
There are a whole lot more features, including new features in the settings page, the lock screen and more. Read the full list of new additions form Windows Blog.
Of course, when new features are introduced, there will be bugs, it is a rule of thumb that the more features we get in a build, the more issues are introduced, that's how beta builds work. So here is a list of the known issues:
Known issues for PC
- After upgrading to this build, there may be some cases in which when your PC enters Connected Standby, it may have a bluescreen (bugcheck). For more information on how to mitigate this issue if this happens to you – see this forum post.
- We are continuing to make changes to our extension datastore schema in Microsoft Edge. As a result, after updating to this build any extensions installed in Microsoft Edge will be removed. You can reinstall these extensions to get them back.
- Feedback Hub is not localized and the UI will be in English (U.S.) only, even with language packs installed.
- Feedback Hub takes about 20-30 minutes after updating to this build to download and hydrate itself. If Feedback Hub is not fully hydrated, if you receive a mini-survey notification it will take you nowhere in the app, search in Feedback Hub won’t show results, and if you click to go to Feedback Hub from another app or setting, Feedback will not open.
- The Desktop App Converter Preview (Project Centennial) will fail to run on the Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14328. If you are a developer utilizing the converter tool to convert your desktop app to UWP, we suggest skipping Build 14328 until we can fix this issue.
- All Tencent online games no longer work in current builds from the Development Branch.
- The updated UAC UI (mentioned above) breaks the ALT + Y keyboard shortcut to choose “yes”.
- If you are in an app and click on a link with a URL longer than 260 characters, it will bring up the “Open with…” dialog instead of opening with your default browser.
- We are aware of situations in which Groove Music will crash on launch at the splash screen and working to get a fix out soon. As a workaround, you can use Groove Music online.
- Playing music in the Groove Music within 2 minutes after logging into your PC will result in 0xc10100ae playback errors. If you wait more than 2 minutes after logging in to play music in Groove Music you will avoid this issue.
- In Microsoft Edge, some large downloads may appear to get stuck at 99% completion. You can work around this issue by renaming the file in your downloads after closing Microsoft Edge. This workaround skips security checks on the file, so it should be used only with files from a trusted source.
- If you have BitLocker/Device Encryption enabled and try go back to a previous Insider Preview build via “Go back to an earlier build” under Settings > Update & security > Recovery – the app will crash and you will be unable to rollback. To work around this issue, disable BitLocker/Device Encryption and try again.
- Settings will crash if you try to pin one of the pages to Start, resulting in page not being pinned
- You may see square boxes in certain apps when using some of the new emoji – we’re still getting things set up, this will be resolved in a future build.
- If you upgraded from 14316, you may see stuck apps in the Store. Those apps will also be duplicated in Start’s all apps list (one real, one pending). To resolve this: 1) Start downloading some other app. 2) Pause the download, then go to the downloads and update view. 3) Click the “Resume All” button. Once everything has downloaded, the issue should be resolved.
Microsoft did fix some issues though, you can read all about them and also the other new features from the Official Windows Blog
