- Due to certain modifications in the OS, there are some problems in BattlEye and Microsoft. It happens between some Insider Preview builds and also on a few versions of BattlEye anti-cheat software. In order to protect Insiders who have installed these versions on their PC, the team applied a compatibility hold. It will keep a hold on the devices that offers affected builds of Windows Insider Preview.

- Users may experience an issue while using the dark theme. Here, the hardware text prediction candidate window will get unreadable. It happens because of black text on a dark grey background.
- After closing certain devices lid, Bluetooth devices may fail to reconnect as usual. Microsoft is working on a fix but as a workaround, you can toggle Bluetooth off and on in the Settings app. Else you can also restart the device which would solve the issue as well.

- Another trouble that Insiders are reporting about is of Optional drivers. In the new section on the Windows Update page, it might show older drivers again available for download. In case you accept it, they will make an attempt to install and fail to do so. The team is still investigating the problem.
