Microsoft releases Windows 10 Fall Creators Update Build 16291 to the Fast ring

Windows-10 key

The release date for the next big Windows 10 feature update is drawing ever closer, and Microsoft is working hard to get it as complete and polished as possible.

Today sees the release of the latest Fall Creators Update build to the Fast ring (not Skip Ahead), and as you might expect, bug fixes and stability and performance tweaks are the order of the day. But that said, Microsoft has managed to sneak in another new feature too.

New in Build 16291 is the ability for users to continue reading articles and news in Windows 10 that they started on their iPhones or Android devices. This is handled directly from within the Cortana app.

Aside from that, the main changes, improvements, and fixes in this build are:

  • Fixed an issue where sometimes after an upgrade Windows Update’s update history would be missing a listing for the feature update you’d just done.
  • Fixed an issue where scrolling with touch or precision touchpads wasn’t working with the F12 Developer Tools.
  • Fixed an issue where pin reset above lock ("I forgot my PIN") would only work the first time the password was reset.
  • Fixed an issue where Microsoft Edge would crash if you added a Favorite to a Favorites folder and then immediately sorted that folder by name.
  • Fixed an issue with the indexer from recent flights that could result in Outlook 2016 search failing to index the body of messages.
  • Fixed a recent issue resulting in the Skype UWP app not being launched if it was minimized when you clicked an incoming call notification.
