Here’s what’s fixed for Windows 10 Redstone PC build 14271

Kellogg Brengel

Gabe is back from MWC in Barcelona and was eager to put out a new PC and Mobile build for insiders, the first time Microsoft has released new Insider builds for PC and mobile at the same time. PC Build 14271 fixes 10 issues from the previous build. They include:

  • We fixed an issue where the window borders on apps would change from accent color to black after every upgrade to a new build.
  • We have updated the music control icons that are shown in taskbar previews in music apps like Groove to look more crisp and clean at higher resolutions.
  • We fixed an issue where the taskbar would sometimes not auto-hide and show unexpectedly on top of full screen windows such as showing above a PowerPoint presentation when in slideshow mode.
  • We fixed an issue where the “Hide notifications while presenting” setting preference is lost after upgrading to a new build.
  • The entire app header in Action Center is now right-clickable instead of just the app name or “x”.
  • We made it easier to dismiss all officiations from a specific app in Action Center by increasing the target area to encompass the entire app header.
  • We fixed an issue where interaction notifications would not show a button to input text in some cases.
  • Fast user switching should work now with Picture Password.
  • We fixed an issue where some desktop (Win32) apps look missing from Start.
  • We fixed an issue where the accent color does not automatically change when the slideshow option is chosen for your desktop background.

The build is available now in the fast ring. Let us know if you find any other fixed issues or improved performance in the comments section below.
