Microsoft Releases Version 20257 on Insider Dev Channel

A new version is coming to the Dev channel of the Windows Insider program. A small update that only changes the development branch and fixes many current issues in Windows 10. Specifically, we are talking about Build 20257 of FE_Release, one of the multiple development branches that they currently have within. Microsoft, and I don’t know it doesn’t match any specific version.

Happy #VeteransDay and thank you to those who served!

Developer Updates

As in every version, we have a new Windows SDK in the development channel. Whenever a new version of the operating system is released on the development channel, the corresponding SDK will also be offered. You can always install the latest Insider SDK from aka.ms/InsiderSDK. SDK versions will be archived in Flight Hub along with operating system versions.

Microsoft is studying the long time it takes to install a new version. Microsoft is working to implement live preview of pinned pages. For now, the new page pinning experience will only work with news we add, not news we add. that we already have. If we don’t want to wait, we can remove it from edge: // apps and pin it. They are investigating reports that some users see error 0x80070426 when using their Microsoft account to sign in to various apps. If so, restarting your computer may resolve this problem.
