Microsoft has released the latest Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16281 for PC in the Fast ring (not Skip Ahead). As Microsoft has announced the releasing date of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update hence in this short period, the main concern of the development team is to polish the upcoming Windows 10 update rather than adding new features.

Windows 10 build 16281 incorporates changes, improvement, and fixes. More quick builds release results into fixes of the issues simultaneously. Even the previous Windows 10 build 16278 doesn’t include new features. Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is expected to be finalized within September month as it will be available worldwide on October 17.

If you have enrolled yourself as an Insider, install this build and provide your feedback to the developer’s team via feedback hub and let us know about your experience via comments.

Changelog of Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16281

  • We fixed an issue resulting in Train Simulator 2017 failing to launch on recent flights.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in not being able to tab into an open PDF in Microsoft Edge after interacting with the any of the Microsoft Edge window elements using mouse.
  • We fixed an issue where the Windows Defender Security Center app icon was missing in taskbar when the app was open, as well in Start’s all apps list. You will also notice that the icon is now un-plated in the taskbar.
  • We’ve made some adjustments to address an issue resulting in sudden and brief CPU spikes where you couldn’t move your mouse. If you’ve encountered this, please try it in this new build and let us know if your experience has improved.
  • We fixed an issue where minimized app windows on mixed-DPI monitor setups might end up drawing off-screen after your PC resumed from sleep.
  • We fixed an issue where if you changed your display language preference to something other than the machine’s default then any app which did not take an update while also getting the updated language resource package from the Store would end up continuing to display its tile in Start in that default language rather than the new language displayed within the app and other system UI.
