Windows 10 build 18965 (20H1) releases with new features

Another previous of the Windows 10 20H1 update (build 18965) releases with minor changes, and here's all you need to know.

Microsoft is making available Windows 10 build 18965 for devices enrolled in the Fast ring of the Windows Insider Program. This is the preview number 25 as part of the 20H1 development, and it’s a minor update with a small set of changes.

Windows 10 build 18965, according to the company, separates the ability to restart apps automatically on reboot from the “Use my sign-in info to automatically finish setting up my device” option under Sign-in options in accounts settings. This change means that moving forward, you’ll now be able to control whether registered apps can launch automatically after a restart using the new Restart apps setting.

Starting with build 18965, Windows 10 also includes a new version of Feedback Hub app, which includes an improved search interface that allows you to tell the differences between problems and suggestions more clearly with new icons, color and labels.

In addition, Microsoft also updated iconography and displays for Adding similar feedback to problems, upvoting suggestions, and adding comments to feedback.

Furthermore, to help the Microsoft engineering team to troubleshoot and fix issues with the feature update, sending problem feedback will no longer be a popularity contest. Instead, when adding a similar feedback, you’ll now have to fill out a semi-completed form, which allows you to add your own description.

Finally, the Feedback app has a new Achievements page, which includes improvements to make achievements more discoverable. Also, Microsoft has added additional features that allow you to categorize and track your progress.

Microsoft is listing the complete set of improvements, fixes, and known issues for Windows 10 Insider Preview build 18965 at the Windows Blog.
