Yep, you’re not dreaming. Microsoft just pushed the button to drop yet ANOTHER Insider Preview build, on a weekend of all things! I’d almost call that rude, but we Insiders are willing to accept new bits any day of the week. Today’s drop is build 14385, for PC and mobile, and includes lots of new bug fixes.

Improvements and fixes for PC

You should no longer see a notification pop-up once a day saying that your Windows evaluation copy expires on 7/15/2016. I know this has caused a lot of you some angst so thank you for being patient.

We have improved battery life for Surface devices.

We fixed an issue resulting in Spotify sometimes crashing while playing music.

We fixed an issue resulting in the Google Chrome window being clipped on the top when maximized.

We fixed an issue with Mobile Hotspot that could result the host device bug-checking (bluescreen) and rebooting if it was sharing on a 5GHz band and the connected device browsed to certain websites.

We fixed an issue where the pin prompt shown when connecting to certain VPNs would display behind the other open windows.

We fixed an issue resulting in LastPass and AdBlock extensions for Microsoft Edge not showing the expected context menu items or status information in subsequently opened Edge windows. We also fixed an issue where the current tab in Edge might hang after exiting Web Notes.

Projecting to a PC auto-discoverability is off by default. To have your PC beacon so it can be discovered and you can project to it through the Connect quick action from a Continuum enabled
phone or another PC, go to Settings > System > Projecting to this PC and set “Windows PCs and phones can project to this PC when you say it’s OK” to “Available everywhere” or “Available everywhere on secure networks”. You can also set other settings on this page to your preference.
