Microsoft releases Windows 10 19H1 Build 18346 to the Fast ring

The Windows 10 October 2018 Update has been a disaster for Microsoft. It caused all manner of problems for users, so much so that Microsoft had to pull it for a while, and even though the update has now been cleared for use on most systems, hardly any users have it.

The software giant will be hoping its follow up, Windows 10 19H1, due out in the spring, will be much more successful, and it has been rolling out new Insider builds at an accelerated rate this past week.


The latest new flight, Build 18346, doesn’t offer much to get excited about, but as always there are a number of changes, improvements and fixes.

  • Fixed an issue which caused the Bluetooth Hands-Free audio driver to hang.
  • Fixed an issue resulting in some Insiders not being able to access the Quests section of the Feedback Hub.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause Settings to crash if you clicked "Pick your insider settings" button under Windows Insiders Program Settings.
  • Fixed an issue where the PowerShell .GetType method was unexpectedly returning error "out-lineoutput : The method or operation is not implemented".
  • Fixed an issue where in certain languages if you pressed WIN+V before having opted into clipboard history the clipboard history UI would be truncated.
  • Fixed an issue with the new Adlam keyboard resulting in not being able to type certain common words.
  • Fixed an issue where, when typing Vietnamese, the touch keyboard was auto-capitalizing ever word in certain apps.
  • Fixed an issue where, when friendly dates were enabled in File Explorer, in certain languages (such as Japanese and Chinese) Insiders would see the wrong day name displayed.
  • Fixed an issue resulting in an unexpected and non-functional Family Safety icon in the notification area of the taskbar.
  • Fixed an issue that could result in the taskbar search box text becoming black on a black background.
  • Fixed an issue where Start menu would crash when using Narrator to navigate pinned folders in Start.

There are still plenty of known issues in this build however:

  • Launching games that use anti-cheat software may trigger a bugcheck (GSOD).
  • Creative X-Fi sound cards are not functioning properly.
  • Please note that while Microsoft has made some improvements to night light reliability in this flight, it’s continuing to investigate reported issues in this space.
  • For display calibration scenarios, monitors may be missing in the built-in Color Management application. As a workaround, use the Settings app to select color profile instead, under the Display Settings page.
  • Some Realtek SD card readers are not functioning properly.
  • In Windows Sandbox, if you try to navigate to the Narrator settings, Settings app crashes.
  • Mouse pointer color might be incorrectly switched to white after signing out and signing back in.
  • Microsoft is investigating reports of the Chinese version of multiple games not working.
