General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC

Microsoft has made the following improvements.

  • We fixed an issue where scrolling with touch or precision touchpads wasn’t working with the F12 Developer Tools.
  • We fixed an issue where pin reset above lock (“I forgot my PIN”) would only work the first time the password was reset.
  • We fixed an issue where Microsoft Edge would crash if you added a Favorite to a Favorites folder and then immediately sorted that folder by name.
  • We fixed an issue with the indexer from recent flights that could result in Outlook 2016 search failing to index the body of messages.
  • We fixed a recent issue resulting in the Skype UWP app not being launched if it was minimized when you clicked an incoming call notification.
