Microsoft updates Windows 10 with lots of improvements and fixes

Not too long ago, Microsoft released the Windows 10 Technical Preview build 9926 which introduced a handful of new features including the much-awaited Cortana for desktop as well as an improved Start menu and much more. However, it doesn’t mean that the operating system is free of bugs, trust me, there are still a handful of them, which is one of the reasons why the company is testing it with most people.

Earlier today, the software giant released an update for Windows 10 which comes with several improvements and bug fixes on board, 18 to be exact. The update brings a handful of improvements and fixed bugs such as the malfunctioning Start Menu, the new Store (beta) shortcut doesn’t appear in the taskbar, and many more. Here’s the complete list of changes introduced with the latest update:

  • XBOX Live-enabled games that require sign-in do not launch, and incorrectly display the message, “To use this app, you need to sign in with the Microsoft account that was used to download it.”
  • The Start Menu fails to launch shortly after install
  • The shortcut for the new Store (Beta) does not appear on the taskbar
  • The user remains at the “Please Wait” screen when attempting to sign in with a Smart Card connected
  • Virtual machines (VMs) lose connectivity to virtual hard drives (VHDs)
  • Users receive Error 0x8E5E05E2 when installing apps
  • The system stops responding when installing apps from the Store
  • There is a delay when opening a new tab in Internet Explorer
  • The system fails to resume from sleep when connected to multiple monitors with some graphics drivers
  • The user is presented with the incorrect End-User License Agreement (EULA) during upgrade
  • The Settings app incorrectly reports that new builds are available, which return error 0x80246017 when attempting to download
  • The screen doesn’t properly refresh after rotating between portrait and landscape
  • Creating a virtual machine or bringing a HyperV host under management results in error 0x80200065 – “The transfer was paused because the computer is in power-saving mode. The transfer will resume when the computer wakes up.”
  • Windows Remote Desktop Client crashes when playing video or displaying fast moving images in a remote session
  • Reliability improvements for virtual machine live migrations
  • Reliability improvements to prevent some system crashes
  • Reliability improvements to prevent possible data corruption
  • Increased power efficiency to extend battery life

It’s definitely a good idea to install the update. It may take a few minutes, but rest assured, it will fix several issues present in the current build. Just make sure you’re running build 9926 before you apply this patch. Also let us know if you encounter any major bugs after updating.
