Microsoft has pushed Windows 10 Build 10547 to Windows Insiders and as we write this post, our PCs are already downloading the update. Read the full official changelog of the build here. Now, the build comes with a list of known issues too (though they don’t look so severe) and a new forum topic for Insiders who are Gamers.
Build 10547 known Issues:
- Languages packs are being published, but will be rolling out to the update servers throughout the day.
- Windows Store apps may not update automatically. To receive app updates, open the Store, click on your profile picture at the top right, choose “Download and updates” and check for updates manually.
- Using Notepad.exe from the command line to open files when using only a file name, such as ‘file.txt’, will fail with a permissions error. This will be fixed in a future build, but this can be worked around by using a full or partial path, such as ‘.\file.txt’, or using File->Open options in the UI. Clicking on the system icons in the notification area quickly can result in Windows Shell blocking the launch of fly-outs like Audio, Networking, etc. This can be resolved by rebooting your PC.
- You will see a warning message in the Settings app > Update & Security > Windows Update regarding preview builds. Don’t worry about this – It is safe to ignore for now. We’re adding some new functionality to help you diagnose what’s going on if a new build isn’t getting to you, but it’s not fully implemented yet.
New Forum Topic for gamers:
For Windows Insiders who are gamers – we went live with the “Gaming on Insider Preview” topic in the Windows Insider forum. This new forum topic is the best place for Windows Insiders to get support for gaming-related issues with Windows 10 Insider Preview builds. It’s also a place for Windows Insiders to have discussions with other gamers too. In addition to our regular forum support staff, we’ll have engineers with gaming expertise on standby to assist in these forums, as well as some support staff from our partners, such as Intel, AMD, and NVIDIA, so feel free to stop by these new areas of the forum and let us know how you’re feeling about your gaming experience on Windows 10. For Xbox Live related features and games – you can also find communities to discuss those games at forums.xbox.com.
