Today, Microsoft released 19H2 Build 18362.10014 and Build 18362.10015 for Windows Insider in the Slow Ring. As a reminder, Microsoft is currently testing the ability to provide these updates with features that are disabled by default so that they can be enabled through controlled feature deployments. This helps them to get better feedback on the overall quality of the construction. A subset of insiders of the Slow ring have disabled the default features, and another subset has enabled them by default.
This means that not everyone in the Slow ring immediately sees new features:
- If you are on 19H2 build 18362.10012 – you will get build 18362.10014 with the features disabled by default. This includes the features listed below as well as the features of the previous version.
- If you are on 19H2 build 18362.10013 – you will get build 18362.10015 with features enabled by default.
If you are on the Windows update May 10, 2019 and you simply plug your PC into the Slow ring to receive 19H2 updates, it will be a virtual “draw” to determine if your PC’s features are enabled or not.
Apart from an update, the features are disabled and the other activated – the two updates published today and highlighted above are identical and include the following features in addition to what was included in the last update 19H2:
- Microsoft has enabled Windows Defender Credential Guard for ARM64 devices to provide additional protection against credential theft for companies that use ARM64 devices in their business.
- Microsoft has enabled enterprises to complete the Windows 10 in S Mode policy to enable Microsoft Intune’s traditional Win32 (desktop) applications.
- The search box in the File Explorer is updated to be powered by Windows Search. This change will help you integrate your OneDrive content online with traditional indexed results.
- They have added the ability for Narrator and other assistive technologies to read and learn where the FN key on the keyboards is located and in what state it is (locked or not).
As always, insiders are encouraged to report any problems they have with these updates through the Feedback Hub.
If you’re a Windows Insider in the Slow ring, you can update to the Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18362.10014 & 18362.10015 (19H2) by going to Settings -> Update & Security -> Windows Update and then looking for the latest update.
