A few hours ago, Microsoft launched Windows 10 Mobile build 14371 for the fast ring and now it’s the turn of PCs to receive the very same build once they are enrolled in this fast track.
Now, what the Windows 10 build 14371 for PCs brings is just a new feature that is related the performance of activation on PC desktop.
According to Microsoft, plenty of complaints received from users who were unable to activate their copies of Windows just after changing hardware such as hard drives or motherboards, so with this new build it introduces a new Activation Troubleshooter that is available in Settings, first just enter into Update & security Activation and then into Troubleshoot which is a guide to you through the necessary steps for successfully activating your PC.
The head of the Windows Insider program, Dona Sarkar explained this way, For instance, if your device has a digital license (formerly called “digital entitlement”) for Windows 10 Pro from a previously installed activated Windows 10 build but you accidentally re-installed Windows 10 Home on such a device, the troubleshooter will automatically guide you through upgrading to Windows 10 Pro and activate Windows.
Moreover, the company is also introducing a new option with this build that allows you to link Microsoft accounts to the activation of a digital license.
Dona said that if you already used an MSA to log into your activated Windows 10 Home or Pro device, your MSA will be automatically linked. You can use this MSA linked digital license to re-activate your Genuine Windows 10 device by running the Activation troubleshooter, if you run into Activation issues caused by hardware changes.
Similarly, as expected, everything else is about bug fixes and performance improvements, which makes sense and we are just one month away from the moment when the Windows 10 Anniversary Update will be announced to go live for all users.
Nevertheless, at the end of the day, there are plenty of bug fixes that you can find, also a single known issue which causes networks of VPN connections in the network flyout on the taskbar that fail to launch. For more updates, keep visiting this site.
