Microsoft releases second test build this week of Windows 10 for PCs, phones

Microsoft is rolling out its second test build (Build 14367) of Windows 10 Anniversary Update this week to Fast Ring PC and phone testers.

In the throes of its latest Bug Bash for Windows 10 Anniversary Update, Microsoft officials released the second new test build of Windows 10 'Redstone' for PCs and phones this week.

On the evening of June 16, Microsoft began rolling out Insider Preview Build 14367 for PCs and Mobile to testers in the Fast Ring.

As was the case with tthe Windows 10 test builds released earlier this week, there are not a lot of brand-new features in the new test builds, since Microsoft is in the home stretch of finalizing the Windows 10 Anniversary Update.

What is new:

  • A new tool that provides a way for users to start fresh with a clean installation of Windows. It's available from the Settings app, and installs a clean copy of the most recent version of Windows 10, while removing apps that were installed on a user's PC.
  • New keyboard shortcut for Feedback Hub on PC for capturing screen shots and launching the Feedback Hub (Windows Key + F).
  • 23 additional languages supported for handwriting recognition. (Here's the list of supported languages.)
  • Removal of the Kids Corner feature in Windows 10 Mobile, as of the Anniversary update due to low usage. Some of the same functionality is available via Apps Corner.
  • Microsoft is expected to roll out Windows 10 Anniversary Update around July 29 this year. We're not entirely sure if the PC, Mobile, HoloLens and Xbox One Anniversary Update versions will all roll out simultaneously, but we do think (and hope) the Anniversary Update versions for PCs/tablets and phones will roll out at the same time.

The list of fixes and known issues for Build 14367 is in Microsoft's blog post.
