Microsoft today announced the release of Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 20236 for Insiders in the Dev Channel ring. This new Insider build brings the ability to change the refresh rate of your selected display. This build also comes with improved search experience. Find the full change log below.

 

What’s new in Windows 10 Build 20236:

Change Refresh Rate of your display

You can now go to Settings > System > Display > Advanced display settings and change the refresh rate of your selected display. A higher refresh rate allows for smoother motion. The presented refresh rates can vary with the supported hardware on your device.

Other updates for Insiders

Improving your search experience

We’re rolling out a change to display some of your recent searches when you open Windows Search Box, to make them easy to get back to. This change is rolling out server-side to everyone on version 1809 and higher:

  • The recent list shows the last four items that you’ve searched for and opened from Windows Search Box, which can include apps, files, settings, and direct-nav URLs (for example, like “bing.com”).
  • You can remove individual items in this list by clicking the “x” that shows when you hover your mouse over the items.
  • You can disable the Recent feature by turning off the Windows setting “Search history on this device” under Settings > Search > Permissions and History.
  • If you’ve not used Windows Search Box before and have 0 recent items, the recent list will be hidden.
  • If you don’t use Windows Search Box often and have fewer than 2 items in the recent list, an educational string will display in the area to let you know what types of items will appear in the list.

Alt text: Showing Search, with Top Apps, Quick Searches, and now, newly a Recent section

 

This change is rolling out server-side to everyone on version 1903 and higher.

Updates for developers

The Windows SDK is now flighting continuously with the Dev Channel. Whenever a new OS build is flighted to the Dev Channel, the corresponding SDK will also be flighted. You can always install the latest Insider SDK from aka.ms/InsiderSDK. SDK flights will be archived in Flight Hub along with OS flights.

Changes and Improvements

  • To improve accessibility of PDFs for Narrator and other screen reader users, in the cases where Unicode is not provided by the printing application, we’re updating our Microsoft Print to PDF option to make an attempt to convert the provided font glyphs to Unicode.

  • We’re looking into reports of the update process hanging for extended periods of time when attempting to install a new build.
  • Live previews for pinned sites aren’t enabled for all Insiders yet, so you may see a grey window when hovering over the thumbnail in the taskbar. We’re continuing to work on polishing this experience.
  • We’re working on enabling the new taskbar experience for existing pinned sites. In the meantime, you can unpin the site from the taskbar, remove it from the edge://apps page, and then re-pin the site.
  • We’re working on a fix for an issue causing some devices experiencing a KMODE_EXCEPTION bugcheck when using certain virtualization technologies.
  • We are working on a fix for an issue where selecting an IME candidate or hardware keyboard text prediction candidate may insert the candidate adjacent to the one selected.

  • We’re investigating reports from some Insiders that they’re experiencing APC_INDEX_MISMATCH bugchecks.

In Windows 8, Microsoft introduced a new Settings feature containing many of the operating system's configuration options.

Unfortunately, since its launch, the Settings section has been incomplete, with many configuration options and settings located in the Control Panel and device manager.

This year, Microsoft has been making a push to migrate all of the Windows 10 settings into the Settings app.

It take them  8 years  to do this  and it still dev  and it most likely will  take another 8 years  to get the bugs out of it like what happen when they put the start menu back in Windows and its been 5 years and still  they not got all the bugs out of it .  Many people install a 3r party one instead .  It's one thing to try and reinvent the wheel  but it another thing to put it off for years . Stuff like this make me laugh when i think  about all the different DEs Linux  have  each with there own team of developers who work for free  each have there own settings menu and a Trillion Dollar company  It  taking them 8 years to complete just one  Baahaha .:lmao:
