Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 19624 | Windows Experience Blog

Hello Windows Insiders, today we’re releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 19624 to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring.
You can check out our Windows Insider Program documentation here, including a list of all the new features and updates released in builds so far. Not seeing any of the features in this build? Check your Windows Insider Settings to make sure you’re on the Fast ring. Submit feedback here to let us know if things weren’t working the way you expected.
If you want a complete look at what build is in which Insider ring, head over to Flight Hub. Please note, there will be a slight delay between when a build is flighted and when Flight Hub is updated.

We’re temporarily turning off the new search box in the default apps Settings pages while we work on improving performance and reliability.
We’re updating the VPN connection logic based on feedback, so that if you disconnect from a VPN network, it will now uncheck the option to auto-connect (similar to how it’s handled for Wi-Fi).
Based on feedback we’re updating the text of the Add a Device dialog so the list of examples under Bluetooth includes controllers.
We’re updating the Optional Updates Available section that appears in Windows Update settings, so that you will now be able to copy the text in case you need it.

We’ve fixed an issue that was causing unexpected flickering across Windows shell surfaces and apps in the last two builds.
We’ve fixed an issue causing IIS configuration to be set to default after taking a new build.
We’ve fixed an issue causing a transient access error when quickly switching between WSL distros using the File Explorer integration.
We fixed an issue impacting explorer.exe reliability for some Insiders recently.
We fixed an issue resulting in Settings and the taskbar volume flyout crashing recently when selecting certain endpoints from the audio endpoint list.
We fixed a race condition that could result in VPN not auto-connecting (if it was set up to do that) after upgrade.
We’ve fixed an issue where the battery icon on the lock screen always shows close to empty, regardless of actual battery levels. If you’re still experiencing this issue, please report it in the Feedback Hub.
We fixed a recent issue where if you opened your laptop after it’d been asleep, and it was connected to an external monitor with an external camera, Windows Hello would recognize you but not dismiss the lock screen.
We fixed an issue that could result in your device bug checking after it’d been asleep.
We fixed an issue resulting in certain Bluetooth mice being very slow to reconnect to your device after it’d been asleep.
We fixed an issue preventing you from navigating out of the Connect app’s settings dialog using a mouse.
We fixed an issue resulting in Windows Security’s Core Isolation feature failing to enable on certain devices recently.
We fixed an issue resulting in Windows Update failing with error code 0x800700b7.
We fixed a deadlock that could result in Windows Update’s checking for updates not completing and showing as in progress until Settings was closed and reopened.
We fixed an issue where some of the buttons and links on the Language Settings page weren’t the correct color when using high contrast.
We fixed an issue where the text in the Optimize Drives window under Scheduled Optimization section would be truncated in a number of different languages and at certain text scaling levels.

We’re 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.
We’re looking into an issue where some may devices fail to update to this build with error code 0xc0000409. If you experience this error, you may consider pausing updates until a future flight.
We’re working on fixing an issue for a future Insider Preview build where in Settings > Privacy the Documents and Downloads sections show a broken icon next to their page name (just a rectangle).

Mother’s Day is near and Bing wants to help you celebrate. Our Mother’s Day feature includes gift ideas, recipes, deals, and more. We even include DIY ideas that kids can make at home!
If you want to be among the first to learn about these Bing features, join our Bing Insiders Program.
Thanks,BLB

For Sale – Ryzen 3200G | Threadripper 3960x

I’ve got a couple of things to get rid of so will list them below.

  • Ryzen 3 3200G 4C/4T Zen+ APU – £65

About 6 or so weeks old which I’ve been using as a backup for a second system as it meant I didn’t need to install a GPU. It was purchased new, and comes wtih the spire stealth heatsink, however I’ve lost the box. Still covered by the warranty of course, and I will provide the original receipt to go with it (from Amazon).

< Currently still in the system I am using right now I don’t have any pictures of it yet. >

  • ASUS RX 5700 XT TUF Gaming X3 – £320

About a month old, It was purchased new so I’m the only owner and it has barely seen much use. This card does have a bad rep, because ASUS were unfortuately too lazy to run it through QC so the GPU heatsink doesn’t apply enough pressure onto the die, and the GDDR6 modules have no heatsinks on them. I’ve addressed both of those so now it runs pretty much perfectly, and sees similar temps to a 5700 XT Pulse (which I’ve had previously). Original receipt will be provided to go with it.

< Will add pictures tomorrow. >

Collection welcome from Wolverhampton.

Introducing Surface Go 2, Surface Book 3, Surface Headphones 2 and Surface Earbuds | Microsoft Devices Blog

Available for preorder today, new Surface devices and accessories are designed to help you work, learn, connect and play from anywhere

The way we work, connect and learn continues to change right in front of us. Our devices have become our window to the world – our office, our school and our social space. To help navigate the current environment people are turning to Windows PCs more than ever. In fact, over 4 trillion minutes are being spent on Windows 10 a month, a 75% increase year on year. It’s not just the pull of the larger screen and better keyboard, but the versatility of a device that runs the software we need and games and entertainment we love, with cameras and mics built in to connect us to the people who matter most. This is what Windows PCs were built to do. This is what we design Surface for.
The new Surface Go 2, Surface Book 3, Surface Headphones 2, Surface Earbuds and accessories are designed to help you do what you need, from anywhere – a concept that has taken on new weight since we first started working on these products. Instead of planes, coffee shops and offices, we’re moving from home office to kitchen table to couch, but our need for devices that keep us productive and connected has never been greater.
As a company, we are focused on supporting our customers during this time of change. From making Microsoft Teams available to everyone to evolving Microsoft 365, we want to make sure every person and every organization has the tools they need to stay connected and productive. Nothing inspires me more than seeing the amazing things our customers and employees are doing with our products. I’ve connected with educators like Dr. David Kellermann at the UNSW in Sydney and parents like Elisa who are using Surface to keep students engaged and learning from home.  I’ve felt the energy from our own team as they navigated how to build and bring products to market remotely. I am deeply appreciative of work they are doing for our customers. We are so excited to get these new Surface devices in people’s hands, meeting them where they are today and supporting them with the tools they need to keep working, keep creating and keep learning.
– Panos
As we continue to expand our Surface family of devices, our goal is to design a Surface for every person, every work style and every location, scaling from the most portable to the most performant. To give you devices that can switch context as quickly as you do to take you from work to play to everything in between. Today we are announcing four new products and new accessories with that in mind.
Surface Go 2 delivers incredible value in a light, portable design, providing a great device for anyone in your company or family.
Surface Book 3 is our most powerful laptop ever. Designed for professionals who need desktop-level performance from anywhere, this is the powerhouse workstation.
The Surface Headphones 2 and Surface Earbuds complete your Surface experience, helping you find focus wherever you are and stay connected to the people and content that matters.
The Surface Dock 2 and the multi-port Microsoft USB-C Travel Hub help you set up the ultimate workspace wherever that may be.
Surface Go 2

We created Surface Go to offer a more affordable and portable 2:1 to the Surface line. Organizations  like Law School Admissions Council, Renault/F1 and National Healthcare Services in the U.K., and schools like Blue Springs School District in Missouri and Aichi Prefecture in Japan, have chosen Surface Go for its compact design, the versatility of the touch screen, keyboard, Pen and added connectivity of LTE Advanced.
Surface Go 2 keeps the same thin, lightweight design, but now offers a larger 10.5-inch PixelSense display, improved battery life and a model with up to 64% faster performance than the original with 8th Generation Intel® Core™ M options for the first time. We’ve added Studio Mics, our dual microphone solution, to increase voice clarity and reduce background noise for Teams meetings or video chats, and a 5MP front-facing camera delivers sharp video even in low light. We’ve also added the new Camera app for the rear-facing camera to make it easy to scan documents and whiteboards – whether you’re sharing notes from a meeting or turning in homework. Paired with Surface Pen, Surface Go 2 allows distance learners and remote workers to stay digital, while unlocking the power of natural ink for things like drawing diagrams, marking up documents or working through math equations. You can personalize your Surface Go with Type Covers, Sleeves and accessories in a variety of colors, including Platinum, Black, Poppy Red, and Ice Blue. Surface Go 2 starts at $399 and will be available starting May 12.

Surface Book 3

When we first designed Surface Book, our goal was to give people the power of a desktop, the versatility of a tablet, and the freedom of a light and thin laptop in one beautifully designed device. Developers, designers and professionals rely on Surface Book for coding and compiling, workloads in Adobe and Autodesk, and for gaming with Xbox Game Pass for PC or on Steam.
Surface Book 3 is our most powerful laptop ever, providing up to 50% more performance than Surface Book 2 and up to 17.5 hours of battery life.  Whether you choose 13-inch or 15-inch, Surface Book 3 has beautifully crisp, high-DPI PixelSense Display, smooth, precise trackpad, comfortable keyboard and the performance of 10th Generation Intel® Core™ processors and choice of discrete NVIDIA® GeForce GTX™ or Quadro RTX™ GPUs.  For developers that push the computing and IO performance of their device, Surface Book 3 now comes with up to 32GB of RAM and the fastest SSD we have ever shipped. For people who love to game, Surface Book 3 15-inch has an NVIDIA GeForce GTX™ GPU with enough power to play the top Xbox Game Pass for PC titles at 1080p in a smooth 60 frames per second. We’ve also added a new option with the NVIDIA Quadro RTX™ 3000 to better meet the needs of commercial customers and higher education institutions. Surface Book 3 starts at $1599 and will be available starting May 21.
Surface Headphones 2

People tell us that putting on headphones is today’s equivalent of shutting the office door to focus and connect in any setting. Surface Headphones 2 are designed to slip comfortably over your ears and surround you with spectacular sound quality, including 13 levels of ambient noise control. We improved sound quality and battery life, bringing you up to 20 hours of clear sound. Our active noise cancellation is adjustable through intuitive on-ear dials and specifically tuned to either block out or amplify human voices.  This comes in handy when you are trying to work from home with roommates, kids, significant others or pets. We updated the ear cup design to rotate 180 degrees for greater comfort when wearing around your neck, and added a beautiful Black finish option in addition to our classic Platinum. Surface Headphones 2 are priced at $249 and will be available starting May 12.
 Surface Earbuds

We know there are times when you want to be connected without fully shutting out the world – such as listening to music while out for a run or taking a call while making dinner.  Featuring an ultra-comfortable and stable fit, Surface Earbuds offer intuitive touch controls so you can start a phone call or change the song without taking out your phone. Experience rich, immersive Omnisonic sound and instantly play Spotify from your Android phone with a triple tap on either earbud. Screen-free integration with Microsoft 365 lets you catch up on emails with Play My Emails in the Outlook Mobile App for iOS or allow you to dictate in Word, Outlook or PowerPoint. Enjoy all-day battery life with the included wireless charging case. Surface Earbuds are priced at $199 and will be available starting May 12.
Surface Dock 2

The ability to connect to monitors, accessories and additional storage can help you set up the ultimate workspace.  Surface Dock 2 helps you expand your workspace with a simple magnetic click and delivers faster charging, higher data transfer rates and the enterprise management tools people have been asking for. We’re also announcing a new multi-port Microsoft USB-C Travel Hub to give you more ways to connect to networks, displays and USB-C™ accessories when you’re on the go. Surface Dock 2 is priced at $259.99 and the Microsoft USB-C Travel Hub is priced at $99.99. Both will start shipping to customers later this month in select markets.
Microsoft PC Accessories
We’re also introducing two new Microsoft accessories bundles designed to help make you more productive and comfortable wherever your office is located. The Microsoft Ergonomic Desktop reduces fatigue and delivers exceptional comfort and control with a split keyboard design featuring a cushioned palm rest and an ultra-precise mouse with cushioned thumb rest.  The Microsoft Bluetooth Desktop gives you a full-sized keyset in a slim and modern design and a compact, stylish mouse that fits comfortably in your hand. The Microsoft Ergonomic Desktop is priced at $89.99 and the Microsoft Bluetooth Desktop is priced at $59.99.
The new Surface Go 2, Surface Book 3, Surface Headphones 2, Surface Earbuds, Surface Dock 2 and accessories are available for preorder today in select markets and will roll out to all Surface markets in the coming months. To help better address the global demand we are seeing for Surface, we excited to share that we will bring Surface to Mexico and South Africa later this year.
We hope these new products will not only help people be more productive from wherever they are currently working and learning, but also help people find moments of focus and relaxation. With our most complete Surface portfolio ever, we have devices and accessories to meet a broad set of needs.  Find the Surface that’s right for you. We can’t wait to see what you’ll do with it.

For Sale – /trade HP ML350 G6 server

Hi all I’m looking to offload this server it was used mainly as a Arma3, Dayz and teamspeak server, over the last year its just been sitting in a cupboard un used since I can’t sit on a computer due to getting major migraines now…… Its a HP ML350 ProLiant G6 Server
2 x E5620 Quad Core 2.4Ghz
46Gb DDR3
8 x 146Gb

It’s a complete work horse and will happily enjoy life being a always on 24/7 machine
It is the tower case model (easier on the ears) BUT can also be rack mounted

No idea what its worth so I’ll say £200 and being a server it does weigh a absolute ton and as I have no packing collection is preferred unless you can find a decent courier that transports safely without being packed.

Thanks
