Here’s what’s new in build 16193:
Story Remix, a new Photos app makes it easier to relive your memories and introduces video story creation from photos and videos. The app will be releasing with Fall Creators Update, but Windows Insiders can try it out today. See below features highlights of the new Photos app:
- Story Remix automatically suggests video stories for the most relevant content each with a soundtrack, theme, and transitions. And, you can then share, remix, or edit in a story editor.
- Story Remix automatically tag your content by using deep learning and AI, so you can now search by people, places or things to easily find specific photos in your ever-growing collection so that you can view, edit or create a story.
- It sports new Fluent Design elements like connected animations, conscious scrollbars, and acrylic. While, the Explore page serves as the hub, the Create page is where you begin creating new stories.
- Discovery bar gives quick access to delight and common tasks, making it easy to create a new story, see stories we’ve created for you, and discover your past memories of people, places, and things.
- Share your video stories quickly to YouTube and Facebook, or share them easily via email or via OneDrive.
Additionally, the Task Manager column name is changed to “Power Throttling” from “Background Moderated.” And, the Volume Mixer to now updated to include UWP apps like Microsoft Edge, or Groove Music, so you can set their volume without impacting the overall system volume.

Changes, improvements, and fixes for PC
- PC Reset via Settings > Update & security > Recovery works again on non-English Insider Preview builds.
- Navigating to Settings > Personalization > Lock screen should no longer crash Settings app.
- We fixed an issue where Settings would crash on launch for Insiders using certain display languages, including Russian, French, Polish and Korean. If you were impacted by this on Build 16188, that means you won’t be able to open Windows Update to check for updates. However, your PC will download the new build in the background. Once the build is downloaded and staged, your device should automatically restart to install it when idle and outside of your configured active hours. Or you could go to Start and Power and choose to Update and Restart to install the build.
- We fixed the issue causing XAML designers in Visual Studio and Blend for Visual Studio to show an exception when a XAML file from a Universal Windows Platform project is opened.
- We fixed an issue resulting in some fonts not rendering properly in Greek or other single-byte system locales such as Hebrew or Arabic.
- We fixed an issue where the “clear all” button in Action Center wouldn’t work if a notification had been expanded.
- You can now use Ctrl + Win + N to directly open Narrator Settings.
- We fixed an issue where the Windows Store App Troubleshooter was erroneously showing the message “Not Fixed” instead of “Fixed” after following the steps to troubleshoot the error “Windows Store cache may be damaged”.
- We fixed an issue from recent flights that could lead to the PC no longer recognizing any USB device until the USB Root Hub had been disabled and re-enabled in Device Manager.
Known issues for PC
- Windows Defender Application Guard (WDAG) will fail to work on touch PC’s, showing a solid black window on launch. Non-touch enabled devices should not experience the issue. A temporary workaround if you would like to use WDAG is to go to Device Manager, expand Human Interface Devices and disable the “HID-compliant touch screen” and “Intel Precise Touch Device” if they are present. After a reboot try WDAG again. Re-enable these devices to restore touch.
- [DEVELOPERS] The XAML designer in Visual Studio 2017 hits an error causing a squiggle error under ThemeResource references to XAML’s generic.xaml resources.
- Some Insiders have reported seeing this error “Some updates were cancelled. We’ll keep trying in case new updates become available” in Windows Update. See this forum post for more details.
- 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.
- Outlook 2016 may hang on launch due to an issue where the spam filter gets stuck reading the Outlook Data File and the UI waits indefinitely for it to return. We’re investigating.
- We are investigating reports that Microsoft Edge fails to open PDFs with “Couldn’t open PDF. Something is keeping this PDF from opening” error.
- You will be unable to type in your password to log in to the Facebook, Instagram or Messenger apps. A workaround is to use the “Login with the browser” button.
Changes, improvements, and fixes for Mobile
- We fixed an issue where the Battery Settings page caused the device to become unresponsive and appear to have hung.
- We fixed a general issue where certain background tasks were being incorrectly starved under resource contention. This issue would impact music and video playback.
- Under low memory conditions, additional app launches will cause the OS to run out-of-memory and the device will restart unexpectedly to recover. This fix detects the condition and blocks app launches until memory is freed up.
- We fixed an issue with Microsoft Edge which prevented the phone from entering Connected Standby which caused battery drain.
- We fixed an issue where the word auto-correction service would crash.
- We fixed 2 issues causing the device screen to stay off when unplugging from the Continuum dock after screen has timed out normally requiring the device to be rebooted to recover.
- We fixed an issue with the Notifications Settings page which made the UI appear unresponsive.
- We fixed an Enterprise MDM issue where the policy could hide all pages except the Work Access page.
Known issues for Mobile
- The copyright date is incorrect under Settings > System > About. It shows as 2016 when it should be 2017. Thanks to the Windows Insiders that reported this!
- In some cases, the WeChat app may crash on launch.
