Windows 10 Build 15019 Disappoints Due To Its Many Bugs
On Friday, Jan. 27, Microsoft started rolling out a new Windows 10 preview build 15019 for users participating in the Windows Insider Program.
Windows 10 Build 15019
According to Venture Beat, Windows 10 build 15019 does come with the much anticipated Game Mode but it also does have significant bugs that might impact the gaming experience of some game titles. A new section called Gaming can be found now in the Settings app. There users can find settings for Game Mode, GameDVR, Game bar and broadcasting and streaming in this new Gaming area.
In this Windows Insider build, not all elements of this section will be visible. However, Microsoft will continue to deploy various Gaming settings over time. But what's more disappointing is that, despite the fact that there's a long list of bug fixes in this build, there are still many bugs left.
Windows 10 Build 15019's Bug Issues
There are many known issues in the Windows 10 build 15019. Beside the fact that some games will get minimized with no way to get restored and other popular games might crash or get black screens, the issues are not limited only to gaming. For instance, the Edge Extensions are not working in this update. In the Edge browser in this build, some Google websites may not work properly.
According to Microsoft, there is also a Mixed Reality area of Settings that it should not be there. Tencent apps are not working properly and Settings might say that updates are managed by an organization even if the PC is not. According to PCWorld, even the new Game Mode that is enabled by default will show up as OFF.
Users who plan to download and install the new Windows 10 build 15019 preview update should also be aware of one download glitch. There is an issue with the progress bar. Even when it's actually downloading, the download will still show zero percent completed.
