Windows 10 Technical Preview Build 10061: Known Issues for this Build



Late last night, depending on where you are from, Microsoft has released another Build of the Windows 10 Technical Preview. We have already published an article where you can find a detailed list of all new Features which have been included in this Build, and there is also an article with a list of all fixed issues just in case you are interested in. However this post is about the Known Issues of Build 10061 and there are quite a lot like we all know it already from previous Builds.

As every Windows 10 Technical Preview Build, this is not a final version of Windows 10 yet and it has some rough edges that is why Microsoft is not recommending to install this on a mainly used PC. However most you might already know it and are aware of that but to have an overview of all Known Issues in this Build I have embed and list for you below:

  • Win32 Apps:
    We know this one will be a bit painful but there is a bug with this build in which Win32 (desktop) apps won’t launch from the Start menu. The workaround is to use search to find and launch these apps and pin them to your taskbar for quick access.
  • Store (Beta) | Project Spartan:
    The Windows Store Beta (grey tile) and Project Spartan get unpinned after upgrading. You can re-pin them to your Taskbar from All apps on your Start menu.
  • Mail & Calendar:
    The version of the Mail and Calendar apps included in this build (17.4008.42281.0) have a known issue that causes every typed letter to appear twice. Which might be funny if it weren’t so irritating. We have fixed this issue with updated versions of the apps (17.4016.42291.0) available in the Windows Store Beta (grey tile). If you don’t open the Mail and Calendar apps within the first 15 minutes after logging in to your device for the first time after upgrading and your device is connected to the Internet, the apps should update automatically. You can also go into the Store Beta and check for updates manually at any time.
  • Cortana:
    Cortana will highlight things it will be able to help users with, but some of these features are not yet implemented and we are working to deliver them soon.
  • Black Screen:
    There is a known issue where you might see a black screen with only your mouse cursor during login/logout. We have a fix for this coming via WU.
  • Music Apps:
    Downloading music in the Xbox Music and Music Preview apps is currently broken. We also have a fix for this coming via WU.
  • Minimized Apps:
    When you minimize an app playing audio, it may stop playing once its minimized.
  • Magnifier:
    Magnifier does not work when you put it into docked mode. We will also have a fix for this coming via WU.
  • Project Spartan:
    In Project Spartan, no selection highlight appears when selecting text in the address box. You can right click in the address box to cut/copy/paste and it will work as expected. We also have a fix for this coming via WU.

So this is quite a list of Known Issues for latest Build of Windows 10 but gladly there are not really any serious bu which could ruin your Windows 10 installation or something. It will probably be a bit annoying but hey its a Technical Preview. If you experience any further issues with this Build, be sure the check the Windows Feedback app for it and in case it is not existing yet, create a new entry. You are also very welcome to let us know if you experience any issues so that we can warn other users and complete the above list.
