Microsoft recently rolled out a new Windows 10 build, after taking a long break of one week. Windows 10 build 16288 is the first build to feature version number 1709, which is the official version number of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. As far as new features are concerned, this build release brings absolutely no new features, focusing instead on fixing the existing bugs.

Despite Microsoftís efforts to squash all the bugs affecting Windows 10 Fall Creators Updateís early versions, there are still a few issues affecting Insiders. Here are the most common Windows 10 build 16288 bugs reported by Insiders.

Windows 10 build 16288 reported issues

Build 16288 wonít install

If you canít install build 16288, donít worry, youíre not the only one. Many Insiders reported that they canít install the latest Windows 10 build on their PCs due to an error message informing them that their devices are not quite ready yet.

I am running Build 16281 and try to install Build 16288 and I am getting error message An update is being prepared for your device, but itís not quite ready yet. Weíll keep trying or you can try again now. Can anyone help?

Now, if there is an error message preventing you from installing build 16288, try the following solutions: run the sfc /scannow command in Command Prompt, run the Windows Update Troubleshooter, and clear the Windows Update download folder.

Microsoft Edge crashes

Insiders also report that build 16288 breaks Edge. The browser often freezes or closes all of a sudden. If you want to enjoy a smooth browsing experience on build 16288, the best solution is to temporarily switch to another browser.

Start Menu issues

The Start Menu is affected by a series of issues on build 16288. Insiders confirm that often there is no click functionality, and various elements are missing.

I had some problems with 14291 and had rolled back, installed 295 last night (3/26) now I have no left click functionality on the start button, canít get to settings, not even through defender. Worst problem right now is that I canít roll back

Isnít there an option to repair or roll back somewhere else besides the ďnewĒ settings app?

These three bugs are the most frequent issues reported by Insiders. As you can see, build 16288 appears to be quite stable and reliable. This comes as no surprise as Microsoft is now adding the finishing touches to the OS. As we approach the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update release date, Windows 10 builds will feature fewer and fewer issues.
