Disponibile la nuova build (21286) di Windows 10 per gli utenti Insider | Arriva il Widget “Notizie e Meteo”

Microsoft da pochi minuti ha provveduto a rilasciare una nuova build di Windows 10 relativa al nuovo ramo di sviluppo Dev Channel per gli utenti Insider.

Ricordiamo che il ramo di sviluppo Dev Channel legato a questa build riguarda una versione futura di Windows 10 non abbinate a una versione specifica di Windows 10 (come ad esempio accade nel ramo Beta Channel).

La nuova Build di Windows 10 in fase di rilascio per gli utenti Insider viene identificata dal numero 21286 e porta un widget dedicato alle notizie e meteo integrato direttamente nella barra delle applicazioni, la possibilità di creare e gestire la memoria direttamente nelle impostazioni moderne, possibilità di eseguire all’avvio comandi nel sottosistema Windows per Linux e diverse altre correzioni minori.

Di seguito trovate la lista completa delle novità:

Introducing news and interests on the taskbar

With news and interests on the Windows taskbar, you get quick access to an integrated feed of dynamic content such as news and weather that updates throughout the day.

You can personalize your feed with relevant content tailored for you. Instead of switching between apps or your PC and phone to stay up to date with the news and interests you care about – seamlessly peek into your feed directly from the taskbar anytime you want throughout your day.

Showing news and interests on the taskbar with the flyout of content just for you.
  • Staying up to date: Quickly glance at your news and interests directly from the taskbar. Get caught up on the latest headlines, weather, sports, and more, then go back to whatever you were doing without disrupting your workflow. You have convenient access to news and interesting content from over 4,500 global brands such as The New York Times, BBC or The Verge, and gorgeous live weather maps. Select an article to open a streamlined reading view with fewer distractions, so you can save time and stay focused.
  • Personalize your feed: You can tell us which content you like seeing or don’t like seeing (select More options … and choose “More stories like this” or “Fewer stories like this”) and over time, more stories about the things you care about will show up in your feed, including ones you might otherwise miss. You can also use emoji to react to stories, too.
  • You’re in control: At Microsoft, we believe privacy starts with putting you in control and giving you the tools and information, you need to make informed choices. Through news and interests, there is quick access to the Microsoft Privacy Dashboard. Through the Microsoft Edge browser, there are built-in controls to limit tracking from advertisers and third parties. And if news and interests doesn’t appeal to you, you can easily turn it off by right-clicking on the taskbar.

As more of us are spending time on our PCs to work, learn, connect, and play, news and interests on the taskbar is a nice companion for those who want to stay connected with information on the latest current events. Over time, we hope to bring your feed of news and interests to other places, such as in Microsoft Edge, so no matter where you are, you’ll be able to stay up to date.

We are beginning to roll out news and interests to Windows Insiders today starting with Build 21286 in the Dev Channel and Insiders will need to reboot after installing Build 21286 to enable this feature. Managing the rollout of features like this allows us to quickly identify issues that may impact performance and reliability. We plan to evolve this experience over time, so please let us know what you think and how we can make it better through Feedback Hub (go to Desktop Environment > News and interests). The team is excited to hear what you think!

IMPORTANT NOTE: This feature is currently only available to Windows Insiders in United States, Canada, Great Britain, Australia, and India. This feature also requires the new Chromium-based Microsoft Edge browser to be installed on your PC. We are also testing different variations of this experience so some Insiders may see a different experience than others.

Modernized Storage Spaces Settings

You can now create and manage Storage Spaces from within the Settings app. This includes creating storage pools and storage spaces, adding, and removing disks, and optimizing pools. This new experience provides an accessible, modern experience integrated with other storage features.

Rest assured they will be gradually rolled out to everyone in the Dev Channel.</strong></p> <h2><strong>Introducing New File System Command Line Tool DiskUsage</strong></h2> <p>As some Insiders have noticed, we’re working on an enhancement to the file system utilities family – called <code>DiskUsage</code>, enabling users to view and query disk space usage via the command line. With DiskUsage, you can now track files and directories which are consuming excessive amount of space on the drive. It scans the specified directory recursively or the entire drive with detailed information on how much each subfolder is using. It also supports extensive filtering and output customization options.</p> <p>For example: <code>>> diskusage /d:1</code></p> <p>This will display the used space under each folder of the current directory.</p> <p>Get started today by typing <code>diskusage /?</code> in a command line window for more options and usage information.</p> <figure class=

Running the DiskUsage command in Windows Terminal.

Run commands on start up in the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL)

We have added an option that allows you to run any specified Linux command on startup of a WSL distribution. You can accomplish this by editing the /etc/wsl.conf file in your distribution and adding an option titled “command” under a section titled “boot”. This command will run whenever your specific WSL distribution starts up. The example below shows using this functionality to create a method to log the time and date for each startup of this WSL distro.

This command will run when a WSL distribution is first started. WSL distributions will remain running for a few minutes even after the last Linux process inside of them is closed. You can view if your WSL distro is running using wsl --list --verbose and you can manually shut down all WSL distributions using wsl --shutdown.

Improving your experience when transitioning between time zones

Based on feedback, we’re making a couple small adjustments for users of “Set time zone automatically” in Date & Time Settings:

  • When your time zone is updated because of a high confidence detected location change, we’ll now send a notification letting you know about it. The notification will include information about the new time zone and clicking it will open the Date & Time Settings.
  • If we detect a low confidence location change and there is a single administrator on the device, we will now send a notification asking if you would like to update your time zone – clicking the OK button in the prompt will make the change.

Other updates for Insiders

Windows File Recovery – Winter 2020 Update

Since the initial release of Windows File Recovery, the team has received tons of feedback and inquiries about the app. This update includes performance improvements, bug fixes, and the introduction of 2 simplified recovery modes! Regular mode is a fast recovery option for NTFS file systems and extensive mode is a thorough search that applies to most file systems. The update is available to Windows Insiders and will be released to the general public (Windows 10 May 2020 Update and higher) in early 2021. If you don’t have Windows File Recovery installed, you can download it here from the Microsoft Store.

Changes and Improvements

  • Based on feedback, (GitHub issue #1495) we’re adding an option to disable automatic controller-to-virtual-key mapping for UWP apps. If you have a need to do this, add the following registry key, with a DWORD value of Enabled set to 0: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Input\Settings\ControllerProcessor\ControllerToVKMapping.


  • We fixed and issue causing some Insiders to see a popup that says “Your PC ran into a problem and restart in 1 min” after logging in to Windows with either an Azure Active Directory or Active Directory account on Build 21277.
  • We fixed an issue where no drives appeared under Settings > System > Storage > Manage Disks and Volumes.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in some printers getting stuck on connecting when added from Settings.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in sometimes unexpectedly being signed out of apps and websites after rebooting your PC.
  • We fixed an issue where the Windows Security icon would sometimes be unexpectedly large in the context menu when shift-right-clicking taskbar icons.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in MediaTranscoder hanging when transcoding certain files.
  • We fixed an issue where audio playing from UWP apps wasn’t ducking after pressing the microphone icon to start Cortana listening.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in VPN entries in the network flyout getting stuck at Action Needed until you pressed Cancel and Connect again.
  • We fixed an issue impacting touch targeting when resizing windows using touch.
  • We’ve made some fixes to our emoji keyword search results based on feedback, including adding a new keyword so that typing “lgbtq” will now return the rainbow flag emoji. Please continue sharing feedback with us in the Feedback Hub under Input and Language > Emoji Panel.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in the Read Aloud options in Magnifier being unexpectedly greyed out.
  • We fixed an issue where the “Help make Narrator better” toggle in Narrator Settings was disabled for Insiders.
  • We fixed an issue so that Narrator will now read Excel cell contents when verbosity is set to 2.
  • We fixed an issue where Narrator might not announce whether a combo box was in expanded or collapsed state.
  • We fixed an issue impacting Narrator’s ability to read the names of certain hyperlinks on websites in Microsoft Edge.
  • We fixed an issue impacting Narrator’s ability to read code windows in Visual Studio.
  • We fixed an issue for high contrast users that could result in Settings crashing when going to Ease of Access.

    Eccolo, arriva l’inaspettato Widget “Notizie e Meteo” e puntualmente sarà l’unico cambiamento di un certo rilievo del prossimo grande aggiornamento con buona pace di tutto quello che invece aspettiamo da anni (nuovo esplora risorse modern con schede, interfaccia touch ecc ecc ecc ecc ecc)

    • Emanuele88 ha detto:

      Si parla di un grande aggiornamento che porti rinnovamento grafico… credo che qualcosa di più arriverà rispetto agli ultimi update.

      Invece a me piaceva più lo sviluppo pre-windows 10 ovvero lavoravano per anni su un os, poi qualche tempo prima dell’uscita pubblicavano le beta fino alla versione finale. Così con 1/2 build alla settimana e 2 rilasci ufficiali l’anno, sembrano sempre piccoli miglioramenti, mai grandi.

        windows è diventato, stranamente, più importante di prima. dico stranamente perchè non me lo aspettavo.MS ha fatto uno sforzo pazzesco e si vede. Linux subsystem è pazzesco ed è migliorato tantissimo. Un sistema operativo per governarli tutti. :) La grafica importa a pochissimi. Qualsiasi modifica sarà abitudine dopo un mese di uso. Ciononostante, sarà uniformata anche quella e parecchio.

    • Il busca ha detto:

      fidati, ci saranno tonnellate di modifiche e non tutte piacevoli (qualcuno è piacevolmente abituato). ma se ti accontenti di explorer, notepad,calculator… allora sarai soddisfatto.spero piacevolmente.

    Che senso ha mettere il Meteo e le News nella Barra applicazioni, quando ce l’abbiamo già come Live Tile nel menù di Start? Si perdono in un bicchier d’acqua… 🙃
