Microsoft releases Windows 10 build 19635 to the Fast ring with more fixes

Microsoft released Windows 10 Insider Preview build 19635 to the Fast ring today, and as usual, there are no new features in the build. It’s once again coming from the mn_release branch, which would normally mean it’s being serviced for a public released, but that’s not the case here. Microsoft is more or less treating this like it’s going to be 20H2, but 20H2 is going to be an enablement package like 19H2 was.

That’s why there aren’t any new features being added at this point. The Redmond firm is currently planning to bring 21H1 builds to the Fast ring in June, so we should start seeing new features then.

While there are no new features, there are new fixes and known issues. Here’s what got fixed:

  • We fixed an issue resulting in the apostrophes in the Location not available dialog, Mount File dialog, and File Explorer folder options text not being displayed correctly.
  • We fixed an issue where the Work or School account > Allow Windows Search to provide… toggle under Search Settings could be unexpectedly disabled.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in cellular data not working on certain devices.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in Settings crashing when changing display orientation or resolution.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in some Insiders seeing a large number of “Program Compatibility Assistant Service stopped working” critical events in Reliability Monitor.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in constant display flashing on certain devices.
  • We fixed an issue with the camera on certain devices showing unexpected artifacts.

Here’s what’s still broken:

  • We’re looking into an issue where some devices booting from eMMC storage may bugcheck when resuming from hibernate.
  • We’re looking into reports of the update process hanging for extended periods of time when attempting to install a new build.
  • We’re working on fixing an issue for a future Insider Preview build where in Settings > Privacy the Documents and Downloads sections show a broken icon next to their page name (just a rectangle).
  • We’re looking into reports that taskbar preview thumbnails aren’t rendering consistently (showing a blank area).

As always, you can grab this build through Windows Update if you’re on the Fast ring. If not, you can sign up through the Windows Insider Program tab.
