New Windows 10 Insider Preview 14267 brings Edge improvements

Windows, Windows 10

The last Insider Preview builds that Microsoft released to the Fast Ring were rather uneventful as they did not introduce new features or major changes to the operating system.

This changes with today's release of Windows 10 Insider Preview build 14267 to the Fast Ring, as it introduces several new features and fixes to the operating system.

Fast Ring is the cutting edge development channel that the public has access to. There is also the Slow Ring which gets fewer builds, and a new Release Preview ring which gets even fewer builds than the Slow Ring.

On a side note, the Release Preview ring won't show in the Settings menu on Fast Ring or Slow Ring Windows 10 systems, only for Current Branch systems.

Insider Preview 14267

Microsoft's Gabe Aul published a blog post detailing the changes in the new Insider Preview Build 14267 but as always, it is just a quick overview of the changes in the build.

Note: Microsoft notes that the company adjusted the frequency in which it puts out new builds to the Fast Ring of the Windows Insider program. As a consequence, these builds "may include more bugs and other issues".  Users who don't want their systems exposed to that can migrate to the Slow Ring instead by opening the Settings app with Windows-I, and navigating to Update & Security > Windows Update > Advanced options and moving the slider to Slow Ring there.

Microsoft Edge

The new Microsoft web browser received three improvements (sorry, no extension support yet):

microsoft edge clear on exit

Microsoft Edge users can configure the browser to clear the browsing data on exit now. To configure the option, do the following:

  1. Click or tap on the three dots menu icon in the top right corner of the Microsoft Edge window.
  2. Select Settings, click on the "choose what to clear" button there, and check the "always clear this after I close the browser" box after customizing what you want deleted on exit.

download settings edge

Edge users may enable download prompts in the newest version of the browser which allows them to select the download folder on the local drive. To configure that option, do the following:

  1. Open the Settings of the Microsoft Edge browser as described above.

favorites edge icons only

The third and final option provides you with an option to display favicon icons in the favorites bar only. You can switch between icons and, names and icons easily by right-clicking on the bar and selecting the appropriate option from the menu.


cortana music search

If you are using Cortana and like to listen to music on your Windows 10 device, you may find the new music search icon useful that Microsoft has added to the Cortana menu.

You find it at the top right corner of the screen. A click on it has Cortana listen and search for the song that's currently playing.

Messaging + Skype

Skype app users can attach photos and images to their Skype messages by clicking or tapping on the "paperclip icon" at the lower left while composing the message.

Instead of selecting an existing image, it is also possible to use the camera application to create one that is then attached to the message instead.


A handful of issues have been fixed in the new Insider Build. Probably the most pressing of them all is that the Recovery option is working again as expected. It is located under Settings > Update & Security > Recovery.

The remaining fixes are the following ones:

  1. The WSClient.dll error dialog when logging in on the device is fixed and should not be thrown anymore.
  2. A bug where the front-facing camera did not work on Intel RealSense Camera devices is fixed, and Windows Hello should work again as well on these systems.
  3. Incorrect storage capacity reporting of the system volume under Settings > System > Storage has been fixed.

Closing Words

The changes introduces features to the browser, especially Microsoft Edge, that should have been there right from the beginning. It is good to see that they are being added though but it took quite a long time to get these essential features added to the browser.

    What mental age of reader are you targeting with the first sentence? 10?

    Why not write an article on how to *avoid* upgrading from W10 to W11. Analogous to those like me who avoided upgrading from 7 to 10 for as long as possible.

    If your paymaster Microsoft permits it, of course.

    5. Rufus
    6. Ventoy

    PS. I hate reading these “SEO optimized” articles.

      I used Rufus to create an installer for a 6th gen intel i5 that had MBR. It upgraded using Setup. No issues except for Win 11 always prompting me to replace my local account. Still using Win 10 Pro on all my other PCs to avoid the bullying.

    bit pointless to upgrade for the sake of upgrading as you never know when you’ll get locked out because ms might suddenly not provide updates to unsupported systems.

    ps…. time travelling?

    Anyone willing to downgrade to this awful OS must like inflicting themselves with harm.

    I have become convinced now that anybody who has no qualms with using Windows 11/10 must fit into one of the following brackets:

    1) Too young to remember a time before W10 and W11 (doesn’t know better)

    2) Wants to play the latest games on their PC above anything else (or deeply needs some software which already dropped W7 support)

    3) Doesn’t know too much about how computers work, worried that they’d be absolutely lost and in trouble without the “”latest security””

    4) Microsoft apologist that tries to justify that the latest “features” and “changes” are actually a good thing, that improve Windows

    5) Uses their computer to do a bare minimum of like 3 different things, browse web, check emails, etc, so really doesn’t fuss

    Obviously that doesn’t cover everyone, there’s also the category that:

    6) Actually liked W7 more than 10, and held out as long as possible before switching, begrudgingly uses 10 now

    Have I missed any group off this list?

    1. Heinz Strunk said on September 19, 2023 at 3:57 pm

      You have missed in this group just about any professional user that uses business software like CAD programs or ERP Programs which are 99% of all professional users from this list.

      Linux doesn’t help anyone who is not a linux kid and apple is just a fancy facebook machine.

    Microsoft has removed KB5029351 update

    1. EP said on August 24, 2023 at 9:21 pm

      only from windows update though
      KB5029351 is still available from the ms update catalog site

  7. Anonymous said on August 24, 2023 at 11:05 pm

    1. This update is labaled as PREVIEW if it causes issues to unintelligent people, then they shouldn’t have allowed Preview updates ot install.

    2. I have installed it in a 11 years old computer, and no problems at all.

    3. Making a big drama over a bluescreen for an updated labeled as preview is ridiculous.

    This is probably another BS internet drama where people ran programs and scripts that modified the registry until they broke Windows, just for removing stuff that they weren’t even using just for the sake of it.
    Maybe people should stop playing geeks and actually either use Windows 10 or Windows 11, but don’t try to modify things just for the sake of it.

    Sometimes removing or stopping things (like defender is a perfect example) only need intelligence, not scripts or 3rd party programs that might mess with windows.

    Windows 11 was a pointless release, it was just created because some of the Windows team wanted to boost sales with some sort of new and improved Windows 10. Instead, Microsoft cannot support one version well let alone two.

    1. John G. said on August 25, 2023 at 12:08 pm

      Windows 11 is the worst ugly shame by Microsoft ever. They should release with every new W11 version a complete free version of Starallback inside just to make this sh** OS functionally again.

    While there may be changes or updates to the Windows 10 Store for Business and Education in the future, it is premature to conclude that it will be discontinued based solely on rumors.

    My advice, I left win 15 years ago. Now I’m a happy linux user (linuxmint) but there is Centos, Fedora, Ubuntu depending on your needs.
