What’s New in Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 19582
Eye Control Improvements

More Updates for Insiders
Introducing Multiple New Features for Your Phone App in Samsung Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Z Flip
Based on the strong partnership between Microsoft and Samsung since last August, they are pleased to introduce exciting new features that are now available on the latest Samsung Galaxy S20/S20+/S20 Ultra and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip devices in selected markets. You can copy and paste text and images between devices, enjoy the black screen on your phone screen, rich messaging service and more!
Copy and Paste Between Devices and Vice Versa
Now you can easily copy and paste text and images between your phone and a Windows 10 PC. Just enable this feature in your phone’s settings and enjoy copying and pasting content using the familiar ctrl + C and ctrl + v commands on your PC or gesture dialing and holding on your Android phone. It’s as simple as that.
Copy and paste requirements:
- Samsung Galaxy S20/S20+/S20 Ultra and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip devices in selected markets
- PC from Windows 10 April 2018 Update or higher
Black Screen when Using the Phone Screen
The function of the phone display has been improved. Users now have the ability to turn off their phone’s display to optimize battery consumption and protect the privacy of personal content on their phone. The black screen is displayed during a phone screen session on all supported devices (any device that supports Link to Windows). The black screen is displayed at the beginning of the session and closes at the end of the session. You can cancel the black screen at any time:
- Press the power button
- Swipe on the device screen
- Bixby activation
- You can always turn off the black screen on the Settings page.
- Latest Link to Windows version
- Phone screen supported devices
Rich Communication Service (RCS)
Your phone application now supports RCS (Send/Receive) for more convenient messaging on selected Samsung devices, provided that your mobile operator supports RCS. Users who have enabled RCS messaging on their device and use the Samsung Messages application as the default application on their phone can now send and receive these messages through the Your Phone app. Users can also see that their messages are marked as read. When a user views messages on their computer, the messages are also marked as read on their phone, so there is no need to remove the notifications on their phone.
- Samsung Galaxy S20 series with version 10.0 or higher
- PC from Windows 10 April 2018 Update or higher
- Mobile operator that supports RCS messaging
These features will be gradually implemented for Windows Insider on Windows 10 Build 19H2+ and for the general public. It may therefore take several days before they appear in your application by phone. Please make sure that you have the latest version of your phone companion, a link to Windows and the Your Phone app. We plan to support more Samsung devices in the future and will keep you informed.
General Changes & Improvements
- We’re working on giving you control over whether apps can disable the screen capture border. The page isn’t finished being wired up yet, but you’ll see it listed under Privacy Settings.
- We’ve updated the “set time zone automatically” toggle in Time & Date settings to now be greyed out if location has been disabled.
- Based on feedback, we’re updating the Scottish Gaelic keyboard in these ways:
- Pressing AltGR + 7 will now input ⁊ (U+204A TIRONIAN SIGN ET).
- Pressing ‘ will now directly insert that character (right single quote).
- Pressing AltGr +’ will now act as a dead key to combine an acute accent with a subsequent letter.
- We fixed an issue for Chinese Insiders where Windows setup (for example, if you reset your PC) would get stuck after inputting your Microsoft Account details.
- We fixed an issue where, when you upgraded with certain languages like Japanese, the Installing Windows X% page wasn’t rendering the text correctly (only boxes were displayed).
- We fixed an issue resulting in notifications sometimes having the wrong actions associated with them (for example, an unexpected reply box).
- We fixed an issue causing some attempts to update to a newer build to result in error 0x8007042b.
- We resolved the issue preventing the cloud recovery option for Reset this PC from working.
- We fixed an issue that could result in a green screen with Win32kbase.sys crash at session shutdown.
- We fixed an issue resulting in not being about to navigate between the Xbox Game Bar options using an Xbox Controller.
- We fixed an issue where the “set time zone automatically” toggle in Time & Date settings wouldn’t stay enabled.
- We fixed an issue that could result in the Open With dialog not accepting the selection when opening PDFs.
- We fixed an issue resulting in Task Manager showing “Unavailable” DPI Awareness for all processes.
- BattlEye and Microsoft have found incompatibility issues due to changes in the operating system between some Insider Preview builds and certain versions of BattlEye anti-cheat software. To safeguard Insiders who might have these versions installed on their PC, we have applied a compatibility hold on these devices from being offered affected builds of Windows Insider Preview.
- We are aware Narrator and NVDA users that seek the latest release of Microsoft Edge based on Chromium may experience some difficulty when navigating and reading certain web content. Narrator, NVDA and the Edge teams are aware of these issues. Users of legacy Microsoft Edge will not be affected. NVAccess has released a NVDA 2019.3 that resolves the known issue with Edge.
- We’re looking into reports of the update process hanging for extended periods of time when attempting to install a new build.
- Some devices may experience a bugcheck (GSOD) during the reboot to install this update. If this happens, log in, schedule a time for the update to install, and then log off all user profiles before the scheduled install time. The install will then proceed as expected.
- The Documents section under Privacy has a broken icon (just a rectangle).
- When trying to use Win + PrtScn to capture a screenshot, the image is not saved to the Screenshots directory. For now, you’ll need to use one of the other options for taking screenshots, such as WIN + Shift + S.
- We’re looking into reports where, when running corruption repair (DISM), the process will stop at 84.9%.
