We’ve received a lot of new releases from Microsoft lately and we’ve dug deep into each one to find out all the tweaks, changes, and new features.

Windows 10 recently got KB5015807, Windows Server Insiders got Build 25158, and Windows 11 users got Build 22000.829.

Also, since we’re talking about Microsoft and new releases, keep in mind that the company is returning to a three-year release schedule for operating systems.

This means that Windows 12 is just around the corner, so there’s plenty to look forward to in the near future for PC enthusiasts.

Now, let’s take a look at the latest Windows 10 release preview channel rollout, which is build 19044.1862.

Let’s take a closer look together and decide whether the Redmond tech giant has made substantial improvements or just minor tweaks.

What’s new in Windows 10 Build 19044.1862?

As we mentioned earlier, Microsoft has just released a brand new version of the Windows 10 Insider Release Preview Channel.

KB5015878 adds performance improvements to input-output operations per second (IOPS), better reliability in push-button reset after an OS upgrade, and more.

First, let’s focus on the fact that the tech giant gave users the option to consent to receiving urgent notifications when focus assist is enabled.

This will make the experience much less boring and more tailored to everyone’s needs, as we know we all have different tastes and habits.

Additionally, Microsoft has restored functionality for Windows Autopilot deployment scenarios that are affected by the hardware reuse security mitigation.

Thus, KB5015878 removed the one-time use restriction for Automatic Deployment Mode (SDM) and Pre-Provisioning (PP).

It also re-enabled all User Principal Name (UPN) display in User-Driven Mode (UDM) deployments for trusted manufacturers.

The rest of the release’s changelog includes fixes and other tweaks, which we’re about to share with you right now:

  • Reduced resource contention overhead in high input/output operations per second (IOPS) scenarios that have many threads competing on a single file.
  • Improved the reliability of a push button reset after an OS upgrade.
  • Fixed an issue that made the Tenant Restrictions event logging channel inaccessible if you removed the EN-US language pack.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented convenience stores from opening.
  • update of Remove the object Cmdlet to properly interact with Microsoft OneDrive folders.
  • Fixed an issue that caused some docking stations to lose internet connectivity when resuming from sleep mode.
  • Added a feature that caches additional audio endpoint information to improve the OS upgrade experience.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause consecutive video clips to fail to play in games using DX12.
  • Fixed an issue that affected some games using the XAudio API to play sound effects.
  • Fixed an issue that caused port mapping conflicts for containers.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented Code Integrity from continuing to trust a file after the file was modified.
  • Fixed an issue that could prevent Windows from working when you enable Windows Defender Application Control with the Intelligent Security Graph feature enabled.
  • Fixed an issue affecting the height of the search box when using multiple monitors with different resolutions as measured dots per inch (DPI).
  • Fixed an issue that prevented the Storage Migration Service (SMS) from completing inventory on servers that have many shares. The system logs error event 2509 in the Microsoft-Windows-StorageMigrationService/Admin channel (ErrorId=-2146233088/ErrorMessage=”Invalid table id”).
  • Fixed an issue that caused Windows Profile Service to fail sporadically. The failure may occur during connection. The error message is that the gpsvc service failed to connect. Access denied.

These are the changes that Microsoft implemented for the latest software rollout to the release preview channel.

Remember that Windows 10 will reach end of life in 2025, just in case you’re looking for a reason to upgrade to Windows 11.

And, speaking of end of service, Windows 8.1 will end in January 2023, and Microsoft has already started sending notifications to users.
