Windows 10 20H1 Build 18965 Update for Fast Ring Insiders – Controlling App Resets Settings and Much More


One of the best things about Windows 10 is the fact that Microsoft is constantly improving the operating system’s performances through a constant stream of software updates. The best way to make sure that you will always be among the first Windows 10 updates is to join the Insider Fast ring which is similar to a beta program. In fact, Windows 10 users who are enrolled in the Insider Fast ring are now scheduled to receive a brand-new update which sports the 18965 build number.

Windows 10 18965 Update

The latest update for Windows 10 sports the 18965 build number and it’s rolling out right now. The update introduces a new setting for controlling app restarts, but not just that. Microsoft’s developers have also made sure to equip the new update with a bundle of software fixes and improvements.

The Patch Notes

With that being said, let’s go ahead and check out the official patch notes that Microsoft’s developers have included in the changelog for the new update so that everyone can get a good idea of what the new update has to offer.

Controlling App Resets

As some of you already know, apps have the ability to register for restart, which helps in a few situations, including enabling you to get back to what you were doing if you need to restart your PC. Previously this option was tied to the “Use my sign-in info to automatically finish setting up my device” option under Sign-in options in accounts settings. We’ve heard feedback that some of you would prefer more explicit control over when Windows automatically restarts apps that were open when you restart your PC, and with 20H1 we’re bringing that option to you.

Windows now puts you in control with a new app restart setting. When turned on, Windows automatically saves your restartable apps when signing out, restarting, or shutting down Windows, and restarts them next time you sign in. This setting is off by default and you can change it any time in Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options, and can find it by searching for “restart apps” in Start or the search box,”
