Windows 10: Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14291 for PC and Mobile Insider
Today I been seeing some instability like some or all the regular and pinned taskbar ICONS vanishing outside of the notification ICONS on the right and the start menu coming up most of the day and now with only 2 tiles ( MS Edge and the Windows store ) or not coming up and it's decently populated with a fair amount of runtime app tiles & x86 icon tiles but the apps hamburger scroll down works and some other stuff might be going on besides snip tool crashing .
TBH I think some file explorer icons within a folder are not there randomly and reappear randomly too if you open and close file EXP. I think I been having that consistently today and maybe some yesterday
I guess 14291 flying the misbehaving beta flag here today and the last build was really unstable and slow often
good thing this dual boots with a stable 18561 th2 on the same NTFS hdd . ☻
PS I'm seeing a lot more memory compression at times in taskmgr. but maybe that's a new Google Chrome memory or web page /browser tab compression thing they been talking about too and it has been updated like a day or so ago .
Might have to jump on the insider Forum and see what's up there or at let post it all for the folks and MS stormtroopers and fanboys ☻

From some earlier posts it appears you are alternating between the normal commercial build of Windows (10586.164) and Fast Lane Insider builds like 14291. I'm not clear on why you are doing this, but if you want to avoid bugs and just use Windows stay with 10586 until the next official build release--that's my advice for what it's worth.
This is a bug introduced at least one build back from the present Insider build 14291. If you want to fix it, here's how (I found this in another Win10 forum, used it, and found that it works perfectly):
- SFC /SCANNOW does not function! "Windows Resource Protection Could Not Start the Repair Service", it says! Yes, I have made sure that the Windows Modules Installer service is enabled and set to Manual.
create a text file by right-clicking on your desktop and selecting New/Text document, and copy & paste the following into it:
for /f "delims=" %%A in ('dir /ad /b %root%-onecore*') do set "from=%SystemRoot%\WinSxS\%%A"
for /f "delims=" %%A in ('dir /ad /b %root%_*') do set "to=%SystemRoot%\WinSxS\%%A"
takeown /F %to%\* /R /A 1>nul
icacls %to%\*.* /T /grant administrators:F 1>nul
echo F|xcopy /C /R /O /Y %from%\wrpint.dll %to%\wrpint.dll
-save the text file
-then rename your text file to something like "RepairSFC.cmd", taking care to replace ".txt" with ".cmd"
-right-click on RepairSFC.cmd and select the "Run as Adminstrator" option
-the commands will run and repair the bug and SFC should immediately function thereafter.
In summary, unless you enjoy bugs to some extent, you should stay with the commercially released build of Windows 10586...
I've been quoted quite a few times and some people have referred to my post on this thread so I'd like to clarify the following:
1) I am dual booting between my primary (main) OS which is Windows 10 Pro build 10586.164 and the latest Insider Preview build available at the present point in time. I am using two separate SSDs for this purpose, the SanDisk from my system specs always containing my primary OS and the Samsung SSD always used for the current Insider build. I always perform a clean installation of the operating systems, with the respective drive being the only drive connected to my system during installation. My primary OS functions perfectly and that's why I'm using it.
2) I am not a native English speaker so I am not 100% sure about how "harsh" some of the words I've used a couple of posts ago have sounded and IF I've hurt the feelings of some people... Personally, I do not consider "vulgar" the way I have expressed myself and since we all have the right of Freedom of Speech, I think I have expressed myself correctly. Personally, I consider that I have just reported a few new issues. Perhaps I did it in an "exaggerated" manner but it was indeed a surprise for me to discover these new issues together with the rest I had.
3) I'd like to thank pbcopter for the SFC - bug solution he/she gave in post #144. I like problem solvers and solution providers.
Well, another secondary monitor and another Sniping tool problem.

Well done Edwin, at least we know now where the problem is.
Staying away from Snip for now. I'm not going to install some third party solution, just using Printscreen and crop the picture.
Also a bit higher memory usage than previous builds. But not a problem really.
I been testing this build for about 1 hour and so far haven't had problems. I see when you hoover your mouse cursor over clock in the right hand corner a popup tells you the local time and the Pacific time. A neat little feature. Does anyone know if you can set what time zone it shows?
Just found out you can change what time zone it shows. Right click on the clock. Click Adjust date/time, then click Add clocks for different time zones.
I am replying to back you up. I'm darned if I saw anything 'wrong' with your post and find it unfortunate you felt you needed to defend yourself.
As a 'native English speaker' there is no way I could tell you weren't! That, certainly, is nothing to apologize for, either. I really admire the very many people who do so well with English as their second language.
So, Joanne, kia kaha (Maori for stay strong).
FYI I just saw this a WZor's twitter page:
To understand the Russian if you go there, use your browser's translator.
In Chrome, I just right click the page, and select "Translate", and BOOM, the whole page is in English!
I didn't have much wrong the first day I was thinking it was way cool ... ,it went to H. in a handbasket since then........ don't let it fool you or be your primary OS system
edit..... s***** mine won't do that you left click on the date time setting link and it opens up the setting app for all that like it been doing
