Microsoft unveils the new Windows 10 preview, allowing users to uninstall more preinstalled apps

Microsoft has today rolled out a new Windows 10 preview, which will provide the users an ability to uninstall more of the preinstalled applications, in addition to an improved Task bar, Narrator and Troubleshooting. These incorporation are from the 19H1 branch, which is likely to arrive in the first half of 2019.

Through all of the previous versions of Windows 10, users could only uninstall seven of the preinstalled apps, namely  Microsoft Solitaire Collection, My Office, OneNote, Print 3D, Skype, Tips, and Weather. However with its latest roll out, they are adding 10 more to the list: 3D Viewer (previously called Mixed Reality Viewer), Calculator, Calendar, Groove Music, Mail, Movies & TV, Paint 3D, Snip & Sketch, Sticky Notes, and Voice Recorder.

They can be uninstalled using the context menu on the Start menu All Apps list.

The Details tab of the task manager now comes with a new optional column called DPI Awareness. As anticipated, this will show us, which running applications are DPI aware.

In succession, the Windows 10 is now coming with a new recommended troubleshooting setting (Settings => Update & Security => Troubleshoot).

Speaking of the Narator, it now comes with the ability to read the next sentence (Caps + Ctrl + .), the current sentence (Caps + Ctrl + ,), and the previous sentence (Caps + Ctrl + M). This feature could be accessed with both the keyboard and the touch, however, it is still unavailable for Braille.

Bug Fixes and Improvements:

  • The issue of  App History being blank in Task Manager is now fixed.
  • The issue of File Explorer not launching if invoked from a pinned Start tile when in Tablet Mode has been fixed
  • The issue resulting in the fluctuation of brightness has been fixed.
  • Some noteworthy changes to the clipboard history.
  • Printers & Scanners page in Settings has now been updated with a direct link to the troubleshooter.
  • Notepad is now listed on the  Set Defaults by App page in Settings.
  • There is now an option to install a language pack and set the language as Windows display language, while adding a new language in Settings.
  • The issue issue where Settings would crash in the last few flights if in Ease of Access you clicked “Apply” on Make Text Bigger, has now been fixed.
  • The issue while upgrading the previous flight where the error 0xC1900101 surfaced, has now been fixed.

We hope that this latest upgrades paves a new path of success for the tech behemoth. But a piece of suggestion, please don’t install this segment on your production machine.
