    Windows 10 build 10041: Known Issues


    The new version of Windows 10 Technical Preview released today, brings along some great new features and many changes compared to the previous editions. However, as with any major release, there are a number of bugs and issues, and you should be aware of these before taking the plunge.

    According to Microsoft these are the problems you should expect to have with this latest build:

    • Some people might hit an issue where the username and password boxes do not appear or don’t accept input when logging in, which will prevent them from logging in. Possible workarounds include clicking the “Switch User” button, using Ctrl+Alt+Del, or pressing the power button on your PC to sleep/resume and try again.
    • It is possible to manually lock your PC during the initial out-of-box experience. If you do this, you will have to hard reboot your PC and restart the OOBE experience. (So don’t lock your PC during OOBE :-)
    • There are several accessibility issues in this build, which may make it difficult to use with Narrator or 3rd party screen readers. Additionally there is an issue where using a Lens after enabling Magnifier may cause the screen to be unusable.
    • You might notice a chess knight icon on your Lock screen to the right of the screen. This was added by the Lock screen team so they could tell via screenshots if someone was using the new Lock screen or the old one, and will eventually be removed in a future build.
    • Font sizes on the Lock screen on devices with high DPI can be really large.
    • We currently have the Tablet Mode notification turned off by default to address some of the issues we’ve been seeing. The notifications can be turned back on via Settings.
    • The touch keyboard doesn't show up on login screen which prevents you from unlocking your PC when Narrator is on.
    • Some people might see frequent prompts to restart to install updates, even though no updates need a restart. This prompt can be ignored safely.

    I upgraded from 9926 which had no Start Menu or Start Screen, now I have a Start Menu which doesn't work in my main account but does in my Local Account.
    I logged into tenforums and tried to make a comment but it wouldn't work, so now I'm on my iPad. I've got to admit I've had very little luck with Windows 10, yet had almost no trouble with Windows 8.

    I just wish people hadn't wanted the Start Menu back, I liked Windows 8, now I think Microsoft is getting confused because because of all this Start Menu rubbish and Aero.

    That's a question you should ask Microsoft.

    I guess, that his ShellExperienceHost.exe has crashed at startup at all times. He should check logs.
    I have deleted it along with Cortana to save CPU/RAM and avoid lags, I have no start menu either.

    No just single entries, but this build is definitely buggy. My Start Menu doesn't work at all in my Admin Account.
