According to the company, there are no new major features being introduced with the new Redstone preview, but it includes a number of fixes for Windows 10 Mobile and Windows 10 for PC.

Build 14295 is not only available for Windows 10 Mobile handsets that originally came with the new operating system, but it’s also available on a number of devices that came with Windows Phone 8.1.

Here’s what you will find fixed on build 14295 for PC

  • Microsoft finally fixes the driver bug that prevented Kaspersky antivirus, Internet Security, or Kaspersky Total Security Suite from working on the Development Branch builds.
  • Microsoft Edge gets a bug fix, where the browser would refresh the tab if the user pressed the Cap Lock key in a password field.
  • Windows 10 no longer freezes when connecting an Xbox 360 or Xbox One controller or gamepad.
  • Xbox app and other Xbox Live apps and games no longer have problems signing in.

Known issues for Windows 10 build 14295 for PC

  • Windows Hello or PIN sign-in on PC will start the Microsoft Passport service, causing Bluetooth not to work properly. This issues will cause battery drain, audio glitches, problems with Bluetooth keyboards and mice, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi speeds drop. The company recommends to disable the Microsoft Passport (NgcSvc) service until the problem is fixed. Open Command Prompt (Admin), type the following command: add HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NgcSvc /v Start /t REG_DWORD /d 0x4 /f, press Enter and reboot. This will also cause Windows Hello and PIN sign-in not to work, but the company says the service will re-enable in the next build.
  • Narrator and other screen reader apps are not able to read menu options or selected text in the Feedback Hub app.
  • Hyper-V with a Virtual Switch configured may generate an error indicator for the network adapter. You can ignore this issue as it is not a real problem.
  • Some computers using TPM chips, such as ASUS Zenbook UX31, may experience glitch audio and jumpy movement when using the trackpad because the “tpm-maintenance task running constantly in the background instead of once per boot-up like it should.” Temporary workaround is to disable the tpm-maintenance task in the Task Scheduler.
  • Trying to connect to Miracast will fail. The workaround to get out of this state is to go to this registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\SharedAccess\Parameters, select StandaloneDhcpAddress, and change the value from 192.168.173.1 to 192.168.137.1 (value type is REG_SZ).
  • Apps such as QQ are still crashing.

  • Resetting and restoring your phone from backup will now work on build 14295. Apps should also restore without any issues.
  • Microsoft fixed an issue that caused new languages and keyboards to not download. However, there is still a problem and you need to go to Update & security > Phone update and restart your phone manually from there for everything work properly.

Known issues for Windows 10 Mobile build 14295

  • System API failure after upgrading to the latest build will cause Microsoft Band to stop syncing. The workaround is to reset the phone and re-pair the device.
  • After upgrading using the latest Development Branch build Miracast receiver will fail to connect.
  • Gadgets app won’t detect the Microsoft Display Dock on Windows 10 Mobile preview devices, and thus you can’t update the firmware. Docks already updated to version 4 will not see the problem. If the dock has been updated, you may also experience some issues with USB Type-C stability, but you will still be able to use it with Continuum.

Windows 10 build 14295 for PC and Mobile are available immediately through the Fast ring. The update will download automatically, but you can always force it manually going to Settings > Update & security > Windows Update and clicking the Check for updates button.
