Windows 10 Build 20241 est disponible avec quelques nouveautés, bilan

Spread the love

Une nouvelle construction de Windows 10 fait son apparition sur le canal Dev du programme Windows Insider. Cette build 20241 propose plusieurs changements. Le but est de les soumettre à des tests.

Le premier concerne l’interface du système d’exploitation. Le géant poursuit doucement son actualisation vers une version plus moderne. Après des vignettes aux couleurs du thème, Windows 10 adopte un écran de démarrage des applications au couleur du thème en place.

En clair l’écran de démarrage visible lorsqu’une application est en cours de chargement reprend le style visuel du bureau (sombre ou clair). Ce changement n’est pas disponible pour tous les logiciels. Ils concernent que quelques applications natives. Voici la liste

  • Settings
  • Store
  • Windows Security
  • Alarms & Clock
  • Calculator
  • Maps
  • Voice Recorder
  • Groove
  • Movies & TV
  • Snip & Sketch
  • Microsoft ToDo
  • Office
  • Feedback Hub
  • Microsoft Solitaire Collection

Windows 10 Build 20241 et la défragmentation

A cela s’ajoute plusieurs nouveautés du côté de la page « Optimiser les lecteurs ». Elle se situe à cette adresse

Paramètres > Système > Stockage > Autres paramètre de stockage

Une option « affichage avancé » fait son apparition. Elle permet de répertorier tous les volumes même ceux cachés. La colonne « Etat actuel » propose un peu plus de détails si le volume n’est pas disponible pour une défragmentation. Cela comprend des messages comme « Type de partition non pris en charge » ou « Type de système de fichiers non pris en charge ». Enfin l’usage de la touche F5  permet d’actualiser le contenu.

A cela s’ajoute un changement avec Narrateur. Si une notification hautement prioritaire apparait pendant que l’ordinateur est verrouillé (et reste à l’écran) alors elle sera lu automatiquement au déverrouillage de la machine.

Comme le dévoile la note de version disponible en fin d’article, cette construction s’accompagne d’une longue liste de correctifs. Nous sommes cependant dans le cadre du programme Windows Insider et plus particulièrement sur le canal Dev. Le système d’exploitation n’est donc pas parfait. Il s’accompagne aussi de bugs connus et sans correctif pour le moment.

L’un d’eux concerne les utilisateurs de Malwarebyte Web Protection. Un dysfonctionnement découvert dans la build 20236 n’a toujours pas été corrigé. Il rend impossible une connexion à Internet. A ce sujet Microsoft explique que la solution est de faire un rétropédalage jusqu’à Windows 10 Build 20231 ou de désactiver ce logiciel.

Windows 10 build 20241 est disponible dès à présent au travers du service Windows Update.

Known issues

  • We’re looking into reports of the update process hanging for extended periods of time when attempting to install a new build.
  • Live previews for pinned sites aren’t enabled for all Insiders yet, so you may see a grey window when hovering over the thumbnail in the taskbar. We’re continuing to work on polishing this experience.
  • We’re working on enabling the new taskbar experience for existing pinned sites. In the meantime, you can unpin the site from the taskbar, remove it from the edge://apps page, and then re-pin the site.
  • We’re working on a fix for an issue causing some devices experiencing a KMODE_EXCEPTION bugcheck when using certain virtualization technologies.
  • We’re looking into reports where some devices are still experiencing a DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION bugcheck after taking build 20236.
  • We’re investigating reports that some devices are receiving a DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL bugcheck on tcpip.sys.
  • We’re working on a fix where after taking build 20236 devices running Malwarebytes Web Protection are no longer able to connect to the network. Users can roll back to 20231 and pause updates or disable Web Protection as a workaround.
  • We’re investigating an issue reported by some Insiders wherein the taskbar is obscuring the Power button in the Start menu. If this is happening on your PC, you may need to use the Windows key plus X menu to shutdown for the time being.
  • We’re investigating GPU Compute scenarios, such as using CUDA and DirectML, not working inside of the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL).
  • Windows Insiders on ARM PCs such as the Surface Pro X will notice that Windows PowerShell will fail to launch on this build. As a workaround, please use “Windows PowerShell (x86)” or “Windows PowerShell ISE (x86)” from the Start menu if you need to use PowerShell. Or download the new and modern PowerShell 7 which takes advantage of ARM by running natively. Plus the icon is prettier.
