A new test build of Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 19603 is available for members of the Windows Insider program.
New in Windows 10 build 19603
Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) Integration with Windows Explorer
If you have installed the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL), then in the “Windows Explorer” you will see the familiar Linux icon. The new assembly adds the ability to access your Linux files from the left navigation bar of the Windows 10 file explorer.
Starting with Windows 10, version 1903, easy access to Linux files from Explorer or other applications was added. Now it has become even easier. By clicking on the Linux icon, you will get access to all installed distributions in the system.
Choosing the right one will take you to the Linux root file system for this distribution.
Recommendations for cleaning the system in “Memory Control”
The new “Memory Control” feature Recommendations for cleaning users in the menu “Settings> System> Memory” allows you to free up more disk space by identifying unused files and applications so that you can manually clean the device.
Windows cannot predict whether to delete personal files, applications, or local copies of files synchronized with the cloud. With this tool, all found content is collected on one page and can be deleted with just a few clicks.
The View Cleaning Recommendations page contains the following categories:
Large and unused files
Cloud Sync Files
Other insider changes
A beta version of the Microsoft News Bar (Beta) application is presented – a news panel designed to display current news on your desktop.
Support for the Canon CR3 format in the Raw Image Extension application is a plugin from Microsoft that allows you to view RAW images in Windows Explorer 10.
General changes and improvements

Fixed incompatibility with some versions of the BattlEye anti-cheat code.
Fixed a problem that caused webcams to malfunction when trying to make a video call through Microsoft Teams.
Fixed an issue that caused some insiders to get a green screen with the mssecflt.sys error when starting safe mode on recent builds.

Fixed an issue that led to inaccurate size estimates for disk cleanup when the option to clean old Windows installation files was enabled.
The problem was fixed, due to which the storage settings did not have the ability to clean old Windows installation files, since they were automatically deleted after a certain number of days.
Fixed an issue that could lead to the crash of the Settings application when going to the “Network and Internet” page for some insiders.
The issue has been fixed, due to which a notification was displayed on the General Features page stating that your account needs to be fixed, but the Fix Now option on the page did not work.
Fixed an issue where if the Cortana icon was turned off on the taskbar, it could still partially display on additional monitors.

Narrator and NVDA users may experience some difficulty navigating and reading certain web content when using the latest version of Microsoft Edge based on Chromium. Narrator, NVDA, and Edge development teams are aware of these issues. Users of the classic version of Microsoft Edge do not experience these difficulties. NVAccess has released a new version of NVDA 2019.3, which solves known issues with Edge.
The problem reports with the update process that has been hanging for a long period of time when trying to install a new assembly are examined.
The “Documents” section in the “Privacy” section has an incorrect icon (just a rectangle).
We are investigating reports that Sticky Notes windows cannot be moved to the desktop. As a workaround, when you set focus on Sticky Notes, press Alt + Space. This will bring up a menu that contains the navigation options. Select it, and then you can use the arrow keys or the mouse to move the window.
We study user reports on the problems of rendering application icons in the taskbar, including the use of standard .exe icons
We are studying reports that the battery icon on the lock screen always shows an almost complete lack of charge, regardless of the current battery level
The reports on resetting IIS (Internet Information Services) configurations after upgrading to a new assembly are being studied. You need to back up the IIS settings and restore them after the assembly is successfully installed.
Language packs in this assembly cannot be installed. The language packs that you had before the upgrade will remain. As a result, some user interface elements may not be displayed in the selected language.
