Microsoft is now rolling out Windows 10 build 19018 for devices enrolled in the Fast ring of the Windows Insider Program. This is the preview number 39 releasing as part of the 20H1 development, and it’s a small update that includes some changes and a slew of fixes.
Windows 10 build 19018, according to the company, ships with an updated version of the Search Home interface that includes quick search buttons to weather, top news, today in history, and new movies.
Although Microsoft is touting the quick searches for build 19018, this is a cloud-side update, which means that anyone with Windows 10 version 1809 or later will now see the new quick search buttons.
Starting with this flight, Windows 10 also introduces a new Windows key + Ctrl + Shift + L keyboard shortcut to help investigate problems with the login screen. You can try this new feature by invoking the shortcut while your device is locked, reproduce the issue, and invoke the shortcut again to produce a reference number that you can share when reporting the problem.
As part of Narrator experience, the feature no longer announces changes in fonts when they have not changed. The autocorrect sound is now more consistent with the editing experience. And the navigation and reading experience within Chrome has been improved.
Finally, for Magnifier, the track the text cursor in the center of the screen in Outlook has been improved, and moving the arrows up and down in a list of emails will no longer force the viewport to the left of the list of messages.
Microsoft is listing the complete set of improvements, fixes, and known issues for Windows 10 Insider Preview build 19018 at the Windows Blog.
