Windows 10 Insider Preview build 14905 for PC and mobile arrives on the fast ring

Windows 10 logoMicrosoft finally began rolling out the Anniversary Update for Windows 10 Mobile yesterday, but today there’s already a new Redstone 2 build for those users on the Fast ring. Build 14905 is also available for PC users.

The new build doesn’t fix the freezing issues that some users have reported following installation of the Anniversary Update (although there are workarounds you can try if affected) but it does include several improvements and fixes for PC and Mobile.

Changes in the build for desktop include:

  • Fixed an issue causing a large blank space to appear between the address bar and web content after the address bar moves back to the top when opening a new tab in Microsoft Edge.
  • Updated Narrator Scan mode for table navigation to now support CTRL + ALT + HOME to go to the beginning of the table CTRL + ALT + END to go to the end of the table.
  • Microsoft Edge now supports the CTRL + O keyboard shortcut for setting focus to the address bar.
  • Fixed an issue resulting in Sketchpad and Screen Sketch crashing after trying to change the ink color twice in a row when the ruler was visible.

With this being a Fast ring release, there are the following known issues to be aware of when updating:

  • Support for kernel debugging over 1394 has been removed, but will be available in an upcoming kit release. A workaround will be posted to the Debugging Tools for Windows Blog shortly.
  • Adobe Acrobat Reader crashes when you try to launch it.
  • Cortana’s text to speech capabilities is not working in this build. For example, Cortana won’t be able to read text messages out loud for you, tell jokes, sing, or give verbal prompts.
  • When clicking on the power button on the Start menu, it closes the Start menu without opening the flyout with restart/shutdown options appearing. As a workaround you can right-click on the Start button (or WIN + X) and choose to shutdown via this menu instead.
  • Apps such as Yahoo Mail, Trivia Crack, Google and the Skype Translator Preview app will crash in this build due to a compatibility issue from a recent platform change.
  • The Settings app may crash on certain editions of Windows 10 when navigating to different settings pages due to a missing .dll file. Microsoft is working on getting this fixed soon.

There’s a new refined sound set in this build for Mobile users -- go to Settings > Personalization > Sounds to see the updated list. Improvements and fixes for Mobile include:

  • Missed call notifications are now more actionable, with inline options to call back, text or remind yourself to do something about it later.
  • Fixed an issue where videos played in Windows Phone 8 apps might not pause when an incoming call was received.
  • Fixed an issue where, if "Show my caller ID" is set to "My contacts", the contact being called might still see a blocked caller ID.
  • Fixed an issue where the Lock screen might fail to update to the new time after a time zone change.
  • Fixed an issue resulting in music not resuming after a call was finished, if Turn-by-Turn directions were being read out from the Maps app when the phone call came in.
