Microsoft developers have now also made Insider Build 20211 available for testers. Windows 10 is complemented by two features and of course there are also various bug fixes that you can work with on a more stable version.

The most important innovation, according to the Redmond company, is that the search options in the settings have been extended. A search box can now be used here when assigning file extensions to a certain standard application. This makes it easier, especially for those users who have a large number of apps installed on their system and no longer have to sift through long lists.

Mount hard drives directly into the WSL

Microsoft has implemented another important innovation for users who work with the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL), which Windows 10 has been bringing with it for some time. From version 20211, it is also possible to mount physical data media such as hard disks and SSDs directly in the WSL and thus bypass Windows completely. This then allows the use of file systems such as ext4, which are common in Linux, but are not supported by the Redmond operating system.

Additionally, the developers fixed various minor issues that were recently reported by testers:

  • Fixed a bug that could prevent some 32-bit applications from working correctly with the discrete GPU when running on a 64-bit operating system.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause tiles in the Start menu to always display the “Application update in progress” progress bar, even if the update was long overdue.
  • A bug was also fixed that could cause some of the app icons to appear in the Start menu unexpectedly.
  • Additionally, a bug was fixed that caused the Start menu to crash in the ARM64 version of the operating system.
  • The lock screen should no longer freeze either.
  • Another fix should prevent ShellExperienceHost.exe from crashing.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented lead images from appearing in notifications.
  • A bug was also fixed that sometimes caused Windows Update to crash when downloading new test versions.
  • Additionally, beta testers are no longer prompted to install a .Net update with each new release.
