Microsoft today released a new Windows 10 Preview that removes a feature: Friendly Dates in File Explorer. The update brings Windows 10 from Build 18885 (the tester was released on April 26) to 18890. These builds come from the 20H1 branch, which is the Windows 10 update that will be released in the first half of next year.
Windows 10 is being developed as a service and therefore regularly receives new functions. Microsoft has released six major updates so far: November Update, Anniversary Update, Creators Update, Fall Creators Update, April 2018 Update, and October 2018 Update. The update for May 2019 is in the Release Preview Ring and is expected to be released later this month.
Friendly Dates in File Explorer, a function that displays more readable data, arrived in build 1
Bug Fixes and Known Issues
This 20H1 build contains the following fixes and fixes:
- Fixed a problem in the audio service when checking whether a machine was licensed to use spatial audio.
- Fixed an issue that may cause the desktop to refresh unexpectedly slowly (when you right-click on the desktop and select Refresh or press F5.)
- Fixed an issue that caused this Network Shares Can not Be Accessed When Booted in Safe Mode with Networking
- Fixed an issue where hardware keyboard text predictions were not displayed (if enabled) when the es-US keyboard was active.

This build has nine known issues:
- Older versions of anti-cheat software in games can cause PCs to crash. Make sure you are running the latest version of your games before attempting to upgrade Windows.
- Some Realtek SD card readers do not work properly.
- When you use a Remote Desktop to connect to an advanced session VM, the search results appear in the system tray. Do not be visible (just a dark area) until you restart searchui.exe.
- When Quick Start is enabled, the night light on certain devices will not turn on until after a reboot.
- There is a delay in recognizing emoji and dictation fields when you drag the device.
- Tamper protection can be disabled in Windows security after updating to this build. You can turn it back on.
- Some Start Menu and All Apps features are not localized in languages such as FR-FR, RU-RU, and ZH-CN.
- Scrolling with the mouse wheel or the touchpad may not work after the upgrade at certain locations. If you notice this, go to Settings> Devices> Mouse and change one of the settings (for example, choose how many lines to scroll for each image) until the system shuts down or restarts.
- When you ring builds from Fast Install and switch to the slow ring or release preview ring, optional content, such as activating developer mode, fails. You must stay in the Fast Ring to add / install / activate optional content. This is because the optional content can only be installed on builds that are allowed for specific rings.
Do not install this as usual on your production machine.
