Windows 10 Build 10041 Known Issues

Windows10Build10041Header1

Microsoft has today release a new Build Version of its Windows 10 Operating System for Desktops. With Build 10041 are coming some cool new features like the transparent Start Menu, which we know already from some leaks and of course from the Windows 10 Technical Preview for Phones. However with every Build Microsoft releases, there are coming some issues which are know at the release already.

According to the official Blog Post from Microsoft, these are the Issues which they are already aware of and might appear in your Windows 10 installation:

  • Some people might hit an issue where the username and password boxes do not appear or don’t accept input when logging in, which will prevent them from logging in. Possible workarounds include clicking the “Switch User” button, using Ctrl+Alt+Del, or pressing the power button on your PC to sleep/resume and try again.
  • It is possible to manually lock your PC during the initial out-of-box experience. If you do this, you will have to hard reboot your PC and restart the OOBE experience.
  • There are several accessibility issues in this build, which may make it difficult to use with Narrator or 3rd party screen readers. Additionally there is an issue where using a Lens after enabling Magnifier may cause the screen to be unusable.
  • Some apps in the Store Beta will fail to install or update due to a licensing issue.
  • In this build, the Mail, Calendar, and People apps may be broken due to a licensing issue with the Store Beta. To get these apps working again, you need to follow these steps:
    1. Open powershell as administrator
    2. Run the command Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like “*windowscommunicationsapps*”} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online
    3. Re-install Mail, People and Calendar from the Store (green tile)
  • You might notice a chess knight icon on your Lock screen to the right of the screen. This was added by the Lock screen team so they could tell via screenshots if someone was using the new Lock screen or the old one, and will eventually be removed in a future build.
  • Font sizes on the Lock screen on devices with high DPI can be really large.
  • We currently have the Tablet Mode notification turned off by default to address some of the issues we’ve been seeing. The notifications can be turned back on via Settings.
  • The touch keyboard doesn’t show up on login screen which prevents you from unlocking your PC when Narrator is on.
  • Some people might see frequent prompts to restart to install updates, even though no updates need a restart. This prompt can be ignored safely.

As you can see, this is quite a long list so be sure do not install this version of Windows 10 on devices which you have daily in use. Better try it in a virtual machine, install it on another device or the best method, wait for the slow ring to be released since there will be resolved most of the known issues.

For previous versions Microsoft has released several patches for the released Builds, sometimes even right after the release, however I do not know when Microsoft will release first patches for this Build Version. Microsoft has not said anything about when they will release the Windows 10 Build 10041 for Slow Rings users but it should not take too long.

In case that you experience any Issues with your freshly installed Windows 10 Build 10041 drop me a comment below to solve your problem and to inform other users of this issue.
