Microsoft is releasing KB4494195 for Windows 10 build 18351 to Insiders in the Slow Ring. Build 18351 was originally released to Fast ring insiders on March 5. Since that time, Microsoft has already released a few updates to the build. Today's patch only brings a small change to the OS.
It doesn't include any new feature. Windows 10 Build 18351 represents the next Windows 10 version, currently known as version 1903, April 2019 Update, or 19H1. Here's the change log for released updates:
UPDATE 3/14: Hello Windows Insiders, we have released Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18351.26 (19H1) to Windows Insiders in the Slow ring. Build 18351.26 (KB4494195) includes only a small change to how we package these Cumulative Updates for Windows 10 customers. Thank you for helping us test out our servicing pipeline!
UPDATE 3/13: Hello Windows Insiders, we have released Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18351.8 (19H1) to Windows Insiders in the Slow ring. Build 18351.8 (KB4492310) includes a fix to improve how we service builds.
UPDATE 3/11: Hello Windows Insiders, we have released Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18351.7 (19H1) to Windows Insiders in the Slow ring. Build 18351.7 (KB4492310) includes a single fix for the issue causing Chinese versions of multiple games to not work.
The change log for the build 18351 looks as follows.
General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC
- If you haven’t been able to get the game State of Decay for free (for a limited time), we’ve just made more slots available! Whether you’ve tried it in earlier builds or haven’t had the chance yet, these instructions have everything you need. We’ve also made fixes to improve the download and install experience thanks to your feedback, so please try again if you had problems before.
- We fixed an issue from recent builds that could result in monitors being missing from the built-in Color Management application.
- We fixed an issue causing Explorer.exe to crash for some Insiders when Jump list content was updated.
- We fixed an issue resulting in some devices unexpectedly experiencing a 30 second wait before pin re-entry was available after a pin was incorrectly entered on the lock screen.
- We fixed an issue where the time shown on the clock in Windows Sandbox might not match the clock outside of Windows Sandbox.
- We fixed an issue where text scaling values did not persist across upgrades for Win32 applications.
- Due to a Narrator reading reliability issue for the “Change how capitalized text is read” feature, the feature has been disabled starting in build 18351.
- We fixed an issue where the mouse pointer color might be incorrectly switched to white after signing out and signing back in.
- Launching games that use anti-cheat software may trigger a bugcheck (GSOD).

Known issues for Developers
- If you install any of the recent builds from the Fast ring and switch to the Slow ring, optional content such as enabling developer mode will fail. You will have to remain in the Fast ring to add/install/enable optional content. This is because optional content will only install on builds approved for specific rings.
