Windows 10 Anniversary Update June Bug Bash Has Begun

Category: Operating Systems
Posted: 07:26AM

The time of the Windows 10 Anniversary Update is approaching, so naturally Microsoft has started a Bug Bash for the Windows Insiders on the Fast ring. For those who do not know, the Windows Insider program is a way for a user to get access to early builds of the operating system and its various components, so that you can provide feedback on what is coming, and report any issues you encounter. The Fast ring receives these pre-release updates the fastest of the public rings.

The new preview build, 14366 for the PC, has some 24 bug fixes in it, and two new things for the Windows Insiders to test. The two new things are Office Online for the Microsoft Edge browser, which will allow the Office Online extension to view, edit, and create Office files without having the larger software suite installed. The Windows Store has also received an update to improve its stability and performance. Among the bug fixes are changes to prevent displays from changing order and scaling, a fix for the French version occasionally reverting to English, and fixing Cortana search results to give a right-click context menu for .docx files.

A bug bash is a fairly common step ahead of a major software release, and the Anniversary Update is expected in July, and because the focus is on fixing issues, there will be few, if any new features added for some time now. If you choose to try out this preview build, which you can get through the Windows Update, Advanced Options page in Settings, you will be given Quests to complete. These are somewhat targeted directives meant to get the Windows Insider to explore the preview build, to make sure things are working properly, and to turn in feedback if things are not.
