Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16294 released on Fast Ring (Not Skip Ahead)!

Though it was claimed on the webcast yesterday that no build would be released, the Windows Insiders team at Microsoft gave the green flag and released Build 16294 for PC on Fast Ring (Not Skip Ahead) . As we are moving close towards the release of Fall Creators Update, there is no watermark first of all and builds are coming more frequently and will bug fixes and under the hood changes . This build is no different .

Here is the changelog :

  • This build has the fix for the bug that was causing some Surface Pro 3 devices to end up in a “unbootable” state where the Windows OS will not load and it appears to be stuck on a “spinning dots” screen. After installing this build, Surface Pro 3 devices should no longer get into this state. If you have a Surface Pro 3 in a bad state – follow the instructions on this forum post to get back up and running.

  • We fixed an issue on Dutch builds where explorer could go into a crash loop if an app-requested downloads notification popped up from OneDrive.

  • We fixed an issue where expand.exe couldn’t expand CABs that contained Japanese characters in the file name.

  • We fixed a race condition that could result in window content being transparent (but showing the window frame) or stale after unlocking your desktop.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in some Insiders seeing error 0x800B010C when attempting to upgrade to the last few flights.

Also, it is worth noting that the booting issue with Surface Pro 3 has been fixed with this build and users can use their Surface Pro 3s normally .
