Microsoft has released Build 14383 for both PC and Mobile to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring.
Improvements and fixes for PC
- The link to “Get more extensions from the Store” under the Extensions pane in Microsoft Edge now takes you directly to the Store to download available extensions.
- We have changed the keyboard shortcut to invoke Cortana in listening mode to Win + Shift + C based on feedback from Insiders experiencing a large number of unintended activations of Cortana while in listening mode. Speaking “Hey Cortana”, when enabled in Cortana Settings, continues to invoke Cortana in listening mode as it always has.
- Going forward from this build, updates to the Quick Action area of Action Center will be preserved across upgrades.
- We fixed an issue where disconnecting the Surface Book from an external monitor set as primary might result in the Surface Book screen showing in portrait rather than landscape until having detached and reattached the screen.
- We fixed an issue where the Settings app was showing media controls in the taskbar preview window.
- We fixed an issue where dragging the file comparison or manage library dialogs between two monitors with different DPIs would result in the dialog content no longer displaying correctly
- We fixed an issue where the checkmark used to indicate a selected state in app bar toggle buttons wasn’t visible in high contrast, for example in the Photos menu under “…”.
- We fixed an issue where connecting to a PC using Remote Desktop when a maximized window is immediately behind the Remote Desktop dialog would result in the subsequent the Credential UI window being displayed behind the maximized window.
- We fixed an issue where, with certain monitor configurations, Explorer.exe would hang after a tooltip is displaying.
- We fixed an issue resulting in certain Bluetooth mice, such as the Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse, sometimes accelerating erratically when moving the cursor across the screen.
- We fixed an issue where on certain webpages in Microsoft Edge when Narrator was in Scan mode and going line by line through a list of hyperlinks, Narrator wouldn’t announce the fact that these were hyperlinks.
- We fixed an issue with certain websites potentially causing a memory leak and becoming unresponsive in Microsoft Edge when the LastPass extension had been enabled.

Microsoft has released Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14361 for both PC and Mobile to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring.
Some new changes are there:
LastPass extension for Microsoft Edge
Windows Ink improvements
New icons and many more.
Insert and view content from YouTube, Vimeo, Vine, Sway and more, right alongside your notes. By simply pasting a video link into OneNote for Windows 10, Mac or iOS, a playable thumbnail version will appear next to it. Soon you’ll also be able to embed with copy and paste for OneNote Online.
OneNote for Windows
We updated the work and school sign-in process, so now you can sign in to OneNote for the first time using your Office 365 organization ID. We hope this eliminates potential confusion, saves time and gets people into their notes more quickly.
For OneNote for the Windows Phone, we added audio recording, giving you an additional and easier way to get your ideas down while on the go.
OneNote for iOS
For OneNote on iOS, we’re introducing a few new things that make it easier to organize notes on the canvas your way.
- First, we’ve brought the lasso tool to iPad for selecting and rearranging groups of audio recordings, images, text, shapes and any other item on the canvas.
- Second, on iPad, you can rearrange audio recordings, images, text, shapes and (you guessed it) any other item on the canvas by just touching and dragging.
- Third, you can now rotate images in OneNote on both iPad and iPhone.
- Fourth, if images are your thing, you can now insert multiple photos on a page at once on iPad and iPhone.
Smart Lookup—The best viewing experience for reference material is coming soon to OneNote Online. Smart Lookup is powered by Bing and uses the selected text and surrounding content to give you contextually relevant results. Select a phrase, open the context menu, click and look smart. We can’t wait to see what you do with it.
Library science—Getting lost navigating your digital bookshelf? We’ve re-shelved the notebook list and now you can distinguish between your personal notebooks, notebooks that others have shared with you and OneNote Class Notebooks you belong to. Now, when you open OneNote Online, you’ll be able to clearly see these categories listed out. Pro tip: head directly to onenote.com/notebooks to dive in with the new view. Still can’t find what you’re looking for? Check out the new search bar to narrow your selection.
We added some new features to Office Lens, our popular pocket scanner, which will help you go from paper to digital with ease. Now you can scan and insert multiple photos at a time on iOS. For iOS and Android, you can now rotate pictures in post-production instead of retaking the picture
