  • Clear browsing data when you exit Microsoft Edge: You will now be able to clear your browsing data when you exit Microsoft Edge. For this, all you need to do is click on the three dots which are there on the top right, and go to settings, click on the “Choose what to clear” button under “Clear browser data," and enable “Always clear this after I close the browser” after selecting what data you want to clear.

  • Improved Download Prompts in Microsoft Edge: You can now easily configure Microsoft Edge to show a prompt whenever you start to download, allowing you to choose where to save the file; all you need to do is open Microsoft Edge settings panel (the three dots available at the top right) and look for options available under “Download settings.”

  • Messaging + Skype improvements: You will now be able to attach photos to your Skype messages by tapping or clicking on the paperclip icon present at the lower left. In addition to this, you can now also invoke the camera app in order to take a photo to attach to your Skype messages or send your location alongside.
Fixes done by the company as per the official blog are: 
  • Choosing “Reset This PC” under Settings > Update & Security > Recovery should now work as expected.
  • You should no longer see a WSClient.dll error dialog after logging in.
  • The front-facing camera should be usable again on PCs with Intel RealSense cameras and you should be able to use Windows Hello again.
  • We fixed an issue where incorrect storage capacity was provided for the system volume (the hard drive in which Windows is installed on) under Settings > System > Storage.
There is only one know issue available for this build. If you are using Hyper-V and upgrade to this build with more than one vswitch or multiple virtual networking adapters, which includes legacy, chances are that you might lose your connectivity after the update. According to the official blog, there are two workarounds available in order to get network connectivity, they are:
  • Remove all the virtual network adapters connected to the vswitch, delete the vswitch and recreate it, then reconnect their virtual NIC to the new vswitch.
  • Admin command prompt, do “netcfg -d” will wipe-out all the vswitch settings so that you can start from scratch.
