  • Fixed an issue where the icon for Settings was missing from the Background apps and Data usage settings pages. Also fixed an issue where content in the Windows Insider Program settings page might be truncated.
  • Fixed an issue where File Explorer would show two copies of any picture or screenshot taken on a phone while that phone was connected to the PC, despite only one file actually existing on the phone.
