Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14257

Hi everyone,

Today, we are releasing Build 14257 Windows Insiders in the Fast ring.

As I mentioned last week, we’re at the beginning of a new development cycle for our next feature update to Windows 10. Teams are still early in their new feature work and changes in this build are mostly about laying the foundation for those features to start coming into builds. So you won’t see many visible changes quite yet. Also, the increased pace of the Fast ring (You’ll note that this build is only 6 revs newer than the last build we sent to the Fast ring) means that there will be fewer big changes between builds as opposed to this time last year when builds were about 30 days apart. There is a ton of coding work going on, but I want to set your expectations on how it will show up for you at our increased Fast ring pace.

We are seeing lots of bug fixes coming in from teams, including some which were reported by Insiders:

Known issues:

As always – thank you for being Windows Insiders and make sure to send us feedback on any issues you run into with this build in the Windows Feedback app.

We know a lot of Windows Insiders will be celebrating the Lunar New Year this coming weekend. Building off our Ninja Cat heritage, we wanted to provide a fun new set of images to celebrate the Year of the Monkey – you can click here to download. Happy Year of the Monkey from the Windows Insider Program!

Thanks, g
