Microsoft released a new Windows 10 preview with improvements to login options, SwiftKey, Input, Availability, Snip & Sketch and Sticky Notes. This building is from the 19H1 branch, which will be released in the first half of next year.

Windows 10 is developed as a service, which means that it regularly receives new features. Microsoft has released six major updates so far: November Update, Anniversary Update, Creators Update, Fall Creators Update, April 2018 Update and October 2018 Update.

Sign-in options have been simplified to help users choose the safest and fastest login option for their needs. The team believes that “Condense each login option to a list that explains individual properties and next step for installation”, users will feel more informed. But Microsoft really wants you to use Windows Hello and help kill the password.

In October 2018, Microsoft SwiftKeys updated AI technology to Windows 10. This building expands multi-language support: English (Canada), English (India), French (Canada), French (Belgian), Portuguese (Portugal), German (Switzerland) and Spanish (USA). These work with the touch keyboard, but suggestions for hardware keyboard languages ​​are now also supported by the above languages ​​(Settings => Devices => Typing => “Show text suggestions when I type”).

Other input enhancements include addition of Hindi, Bangla, Tamil, Marathi, Punjabi, Gujarati, Odia, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam keyboard. When you write using the English QWERTY keyboard, Windows 10 uses transliteration to propose possible indirect text candidates. You must add Indication Language in Settings and download the Indicator Keyboard.

For accessibility enhancements, the notifier now warns you when you accidentally enter Caps Lock enabled. The setting is enabled by default, but you can turn it off (click Ctrl + Win + N and press “Change when Caps Lock Alerts are received as you type”).

Microsoft also released updates for Snip & Sketch version 10.1809.2964.0) and stickers (version 3.1.32).

Snip & Sketch lets you now add a frame to your screenshots, let you print directly from the app (including print to PDF) and delay save options (confirmation to close an unsaved file, the filenames now contain time stamps, jpg and gif file types are now supported). The old About flyout has been replaced with a full setup page where you will find the above option to add a border, an option for updates made to your snip to copy automatically to your clipboard, and so on.

Sticky Notes now supports Windows 10’s dark mode. Alternatively, you can set your color mode to suit your mood regardless of system settings. Synchronization is also faster now, although Microsoft did not say how much.

Today’s update encountered the Windows 10 building number for the 19H1 branch from 18267 (available for testers on October 24th) to build 18267.

This building has nine known issues:

  • Task View fails to show button + under New Desktop after creating 2 virtual desktops.
  • Some users wi I notice the update status cycle between Getting things done, download and install. This is often accompanied by error 0x8024200d caused by a failed express package download.
  • If you have a large number of OTF fonts or OTF fonts that support the expanded East Asian character set, you may find that text is unexpectedly missing from the system. If you encounter this problem, PDFs that open in Microsoft Edge might not be displayed correctly (small instead of using the full space).
  • A competition condition that results in blue screens may occur if your computer is set to dual boot. If you are affected, the solution is to disable dual boot.
  • References colors need to be refined in dark mode in Sticky Notes if the insights are enabled.
  • The settings page will crash after you change your account password, we recommend using the CTRL + ALT + DEL method to change the password.
  • WSL does not work on this building. If you need WSL to work, you can return to Build 18267.
  • If you are installing some of the latest buildings from fast speed, switching to slow ring – any content like activating developer mode fails. You need to stay in the Quickbar to add / install / enable any content. This is because optional content is only installed on buildings that are approved for specific rings.

Do not install on your production machine as always.
