Windows 10 Anniversary Update June Bug Bash Kicks Off With New Insider Preview Builds

Microsoft is laser focused working on its upcoming Windows 10 Anniversary Update to ship it to customer bundle with significant new features and bunch of really good and important fixes and general performance improvements.

In this regard, the Redmond company has unveiled today, a new Windows 10 Anniversary Update June Bug Bash. Most specifically, they’ve released two new builds to the Windows Insiders Fast Ring, “Build 14366 for Windows 10 PCs” and “Build 14364 to Windows 10 Mobile devices”.

The Software company official notes, that “the Windows Insiders are critical to helping make the Windows 10 Anniversary Update awesome for customers.” Adding, “This update will go out to the 300+ million active devices already running Windows 10 today and beyond,” it said.

“Over the course of the next 4 days, we will also be publishing multiple Quests inside Feedback Hub that will highlight different areas of the product each day[…]The goal is just to work together now through Sunday to get the best bug reports possible! We are cycling the Quests over the week but will be bringing them all back over the weekend for more feedback,” the Official said.

Just like last time, the Quest will be marked as with:

  • LIMITED TIME Quests will expire within 24hrs of being published so make sure you get to these before the time runs out and they’re replaced with new Quests.
  • ADVANCED Quests are more technical and may require changing the system configuration on your device and require an understanding on how to revert the changes after the Quest is done. You should only perform Quests that you feel comfortable doing, if something goes wrong you’ll need to be able to troubleshoot how to get back to a good state on your PC.

Here’re some issues Insider Build 14366:

  • “The Desktop App Converter Preview (Project Centennial) will fail to run on the Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14366. If you are a developer utilizing the converter tool to convert your desktop app to UWP, we suggest skipping Build 14366 or switching to the Slow ring until we can fix this issue.
  • If you click on a file download link outside of Microsoft Edge, sometimes Edge will open a tab and close it without doing anything. The workaround is to go to the Download pane and start the download there by clicking “Save” or “Save As”.
  • Narrator does not launch when you toggle switch to “on” via Settings app > Ease of access > Narrator.,” revealed Windows team.
