A new preview of Windows 10 20H1 releases with search and system improvements, and here's all you need to know.

Microsoft is now releasing Windows 10 build 19025 for devices enrolled in the Fast ring of the Windows Insider Program. This is the preview number 42 rolling out as part of the 20H1 development with minor improvements.

Windows 10 build 19025, according to the software giant, ships with improvements for the Windows Search experience, including a new algorithm that detects high disk usage and activity to minimize the usage of system resources while indexing. 

This means that to minimize performance issues, the indexer will stop or throttled when gaming mode, power savings mode, or low power mode is enabled. Also, when device is waking up after being in low power mode or in a logon state or goes from AC to DC power, or CPU usage goes above 80 percent, disk usage goes above 70 percent, the battery charge is less 50 percent, or the display state goes to screen off. 

In addition, there are some specific improvements for developers to prevent searches of certain repositories and project folders to improve disk usage.

Alongside the improvements for search, build 19025 fixes problems with Sandbox, Windows Defender Application Guard, and VPN settings. Also, there some improvements to prevent scaling issues when connecting an external monitor, and more.

Microsoft is listing the complete set of improvements, fixes, and known issues for Windows 10 Insider Preview build 19025 at the Windows Blog.
