Windows 10 build 15014

Release date: 01/19/2017

New Microsoft Edge features

  • Support for e-books from the Windows Store: Microsoft Edge now supports e-books from the Windows Store, in addition to unprotected DPUB and PDF files. After purchasing your e-books – you will find those in your Books library, which is a new hub entry in Microsoft Edge right next to your favorites, history, downloads and reading list.

Known issues in build

  • Some websites, including Google properties, may unexpectedly show “We can’t reach this page,” due to issues with an experimental implementation of the new Token Binding security model which is being previewed in Windows Insider builds. We are working on fixes for these issues. In the meantime, you can work around this issue by accessing the site from an InPrivate tab. This issue is fixed in builds 15025 and earlier, which are available in the Insider Fast ring.
  • When using Microsoft Edge with Narrator, you may hear “no item in view” or silence while tabbing or using other navigation commands. You can use Alt + Tab when this happens to move focus away from and back to the Edge browser. Narrator will then read as expected.
  • On this release, the Spectrum.exe service may produce nonstop exceptions, causing PCs to lose audio, disk I/O usage to become very high, and apps including Microsoft Edge to become unresponsive when doing certain actions (for example, opening Settings). As a workaround to get out of this state, you can delete C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Spectrum\PersistedSpatialAnchors and reboot. For more details, see this forum post.
