2 min read

For the Fast Ring member of the Windows Insider project, Microsoft today released the latest preview of the Windows 10 20H1 branch, Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18894. This version update does not introduce new features but brings a new search experience to the resource manager.

After installing Build 18894, the File Explorer’s search box will display content from OneDrive, and the user can directly manipulate the search results. This new search experience is provided by Windows Search, and Microsoft says that only a small percentage of users will be the first to experience it.

In addition to the improved search experience of the resource manager, Microsoft has also brought some improvements to Narrator and Windows Magnifier


  • We fixed an issue resulting in scrolling with the mouse wheel or touchpad not working reliably across the system in the last few flights.
  • We fixed an issue where opening the Memory Integrity page in Windows Security would crash the app.
  • We fixed an issue where the Windows Update icon in taskbar system tray is not high DPI optimized.
  • We fixed a recent issue where the “Add someone else to this PC” window would crash if an MSA-attached user would try to add a local user to the PC.
  • We fixed a typo in the WIN+(period) kaomoji section category names.
  • We fixed a race condition that could result in users getting stuck with an outdated version of the search relevancy logic, impacting subsequent search results.
  • We fixed an issue where Start menu wasn’t launching if the “continue experiences on this device” group policy was “disabled”.
  • We fixed an issue where navigating using Narrator + R command got stuck in PowerPoint Edit View.
  • Narrator no longer reads “null” after each command listed in the Narrator + F2 list.
  • We fixed a problem where Narrator was at low volume and could not be increased.
