Microsoft has released a new update Build 14905 of Windows 10 to public which comes with many bug fixes and improvements. This is the 2nd Insider Preview build of Windows 10 released after the Anniversary Update build 14393. This new build also comes via new “RS2” (RedStone2) development branch.
This build contains improvements, fixes and some new features.
WHAT’S NEW & FIXED:
- Fixed an issue causing a large blank space to appear between the address bar and web content after the address bar moves back to the top when opening a new tab in Microsoft Edge.
- Updated Narrator Scan mode for table navigation to now support CTRL + ALT + HOME to go to the beginning of the table and CTRL + ALT + END to go to the end of the table.
