Delivering well on its promise of rolling out faster builds for Windows 10, Microsoft has today dropped a fresh Windows 10 Build For PCs. However, as has been the case and as will be the case, this build too hasn’t brought much significant changes, except for a few key bug fixes in Edge.

This new build numbered 11102, is introducing a new history menu in Edge browser. The feature was a “highly requested” one and hence heeded to, by Microsoft.

With this new menu, you can now right-click on the back and forward buttons in Microsoft Edge for quick access to your recently visited websites in the current tab.

As for a few known issues, here’s what they are :

  • Some PC games will crash switching from windowed mode to full screen, upon game resolution change, or upon launch due to a bug in Windows graphics stack. Microsoft has observed this with The Witcher 3, Fallout 4, Tomb Raider, Assassin’s Creed, and Metal Gear Solid V but it may occur with other titles as well.
  • With this build (and with the last build), applications such as Narrator, Magnifier, and third-party assistive technologies may experience intermittent issues or crashes. If you rely on screen readers or other software, you should not use this build. This issue will be fixed with the next build.
  • You might see a WSClient.dll error dialog after logging in. Microsoft says that it working on a fix for this but as a workaround, you can run the following in Command Prompt with administrative rights: schtasks /delete /TN “\Microsoft\Windows\WS\WSRefreshBannedAppsListTask” /F
  • While attempting to update to this build, your PC may show a message that your wireless card is not compatible with Windows 10. The workaround is to visit the support page for your PC or wireless card and install the newest driver that is available.
  • The Connect button does not show up in Action Center.

And thats just it. There’s nothing more to this build, as rightly pointed out by MS earlier. Since the company is now rolling out faster and more buggy builds, you shouldn’t expect much from these, until and unless a big public release comes out.

Meanwhile, this update should arrive overnight for testers (your PC has to be plugged in, and be on or sleeping).
