Eight days after releasing its latest Windows 10 test build to Windows Insiders on the Fast Ring, Microsoft is delivering another new Windows 10 test build for PC users.


On January 21, Microsoft released Build 11102 to Insiders on the Fast Ring.

Like the January 13 test build (11099), there isn't much new, in terms of visible new end-user-facing features, in this latest build. Windows Insider program chief Gabe Aul said he does recommend those testers who are PC gamers or who use accessibility software download this build, however.

There is a new history menu in Microsoft Edge included in this build. But there's also a longer list of known issues in this build.

Aul noted some PC games will crash when switching from windowed mode to full screen with this build. Some applications like Narrator, Magnifier and third-party assistive technologies may crash or have issues. There may be wireless card compatibility issues. And there are issues with the Insider Hub cache not refreshing, Aul said.

Aul told testers a week or so ago that Microsoft was making good on its promise from last year to roll out Insider builds faster to those on the Fast Ring. He also noted a week ago that Insiders shouldn't expect many new Windows 10 features to debut in the first few builds in the new year, as the team was concentrating on updating the OneCore shared core pieces of the operating system.
