Microsoft has delivered Windows 10 build 16179 for Fast Ring Insiders. The latest Redstone 3 insider build includes bug fixes and minor improvements. The build was compiled on April 14, 2017. Microsoft also released Windows 10 Mobile build 10.0.15205.0.

Previously, Windows Insider team released Insider preview build 16176 for PC and build 10.0.15204 for Mobile users. Check out what’s new in this build.

New in Windows 10 build 16179

Revert VM: Continuing our theme of simplifying Hyper-V for developers on Windows 10. we’re introducing automatic checkpoints so that you’ll always be able to undo a mistake in your virtual machine – you can now always revert to the last time you started a virtual machine.

Introducing Power Throttling*: You may remember some of the power experiments we did back in January with Build 15002. Power Throttling was one of those experiments, and showed to have up to 11% savings in CPU power consumption for some of the most strenuous use cases. So, we’re turning this on for everyone starting with last week’s build. Check out our complete blog post on this for more details!

Fixed in Windows 10 build 16179.1000

  • We fixed the issue causing apps that use the Desktop Bridge (“Centennial”) from the Store such as Slack and Evernote will cause your PC to bugcheck (GSOD) when launched with a “kmode exception not handled” in ntfs.sys error.
  • We fixed an issue where adding Hindi to your language list and downloading the on-demand language resources would result in Microsoft Edge crashing on launch and file search returning no results via Cortana or Windows Explorer.
  • We fixed an issue where desktop icons would sometimes move around unexpectedly when “Auto arrange icons” was set to On and “Align icons to grid” was set to Off.
  • The existing Group Policy to disable the lock screen is now available for those on the Pro edition of Windows 10. Appreciate all who shared feedback on the subject. Note, the Group Policy text has not yet been updated to incorporate this change, that will happen with a later flight.
  • We fixed a rendering issue from previous flights where specific multi-monitor and projection configurations could fail depending on the hardware used. This could have impacted all Surface (Surface Book, Surface Pro, etc.) devices as well as other devices using similar chipsets. Another symptom may have been to see screen flickering and potentially being logged out when any screen mode change occurred.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in the location icon being continually on in the taskbar after the first time the Action Center was opened if the night light quick action was visible.

Known issues in Windows 10 Redstone 3 build 16179

  • Some Insiders have reported seeing this error “Some updates were cancelled. We’ll keep trying in case new updates become available” in Windows Update.
  • Double-clicking on the Windows Defender icon in the notification area does not open Windows Defender. Right-clicking on the icon and choosing open will open Windows Defender.
  • Surface 3 devices fail to update to new builds if a SD memory card is inserted. The updated drivers for the Surface 3 that fix this issue have not yet been published to Windows Update.
  • Pressing F12 to open the Developer Tools in Microsoft Edge while F12 is open and focused may not return focus to the tab F12 is opened against, and vice-versa.
  • exe will crash and restart if you tap any of the apps listed in the Windows Ink Workspace’s Recent Apps section.
  • Insiders who use Simplified Chinese IMEs or the Traditional Chinese Changjie or Quick IME to input text will find that the candidate window doesn’t appear when typing into certain apps. If you press space, the first candidate will be finalized. Using the number keys will not finalize any other candidate. If the candidate you need is not the first one, for now you will have to enter your text into an app where the candidate window appears, such as Notepad, and copy it into the desired text field.
  • Navigating to Settings > Update & security > Windows Update may crash Settings app. You can simply re-open the Settings app again and it should work again.
  • The “Save” dialog appears to be broken in several desktop (Win32) apps. The team is investigating.

According to the company, insider members won’t see many big noticeable changes or new features in initial Redstone 3 builds.  Also, these new builds may include more bugs and other issues.

That’s because right now, Windows Insider team is focused on making some refinements to OneCore and doing some code refactoring and other engineering work that is necessary to make sure OneCore is optimally structured for teams to start checking in code.

The next major update for Windows 10 will include new features like Project NEON UI and more. Microsoft will share its vision for Windows 10 Redstone 3 at its upcoming Build 2017 conference in May. The update is expected to release later this year.

Meanwhile, Windows 10 Creators Update is now available for everyone. The company will also release the Creators Update for Windows 10 Mobile on April 25.

  13. I have observed that charges for on-line degree pros tend to be a terrific value. Like a full College Degree in Communication from The University of Phoenix Online consists of 60 credits with $515/credit or $30,900. Also American Intercontinental University Online provides a Bachelors of Business Administration with a whole course requirement of 180 units and a tuition fee of $30,560. Online degree learning has made obtaining your college diploma been so detailed more than before because you can easily earn your own degree from the comfort of your dwelling place and when you finish working. Thanks for all other tips I have really learned through the site.

Simply because at the same time that they’re becoming more and more very affordable, their computing power keeps growing to the point where they’re as powerful as pc’s coming from just a few years ago.

  19. One other thing to point out is that an online business administration diploma is designed for students to be able to well proceed to bachelor degree education. The 90 credit college degree meets the lower bachelor college degree requirements and when you earn your associate of arts in BA online, you will have access to the newest technologies in such a field. Several reasons why students want to get their associate degree in business is because they may be interested in the field and want to get the general knowledge necessary before jumping right bachelor diploma program. Thanks for the tips you actually provide as part of your blog.
