A new test build of Windows 10 build 17713 (Redstone 5) is available, intended for Windows Insider program participants with the priority of getting updates. Early Access.
Windows 10 Insider Preview build 17713 – assembly of Redstone 5, which is available for Windows Insider program participants with the priority of getting updates. Early Access.
This assembly belongs to the development branch RS5_RELEASE of the next major update Windows 10, which is expected in the fall (September-October) 2018 and can be called October 2018 Update.
Reset Skip Ahead
The Microsoft team is approaching the final stage of the Redstone 5 development cycle, when the main developer forces will be cast to fix known errors and improve the stability of the new version. As part of this “stabilization” process, the Redstone 5 version will receive its own branch called “RS5_RELEASE”. Likewise, Microsoft did the same with the previous updates to Redstone 3 and Redstone 4.
Thus, Redmond is ready to release test builds to users who have chosen the Skip Ahead content type in order to obtain the next version of Windows 10. However, this time Microsoft decided to do a full reset of “Skip Ahead”. This means that participants in the Windows Insider pre-evaluation program that previously activated the “Skip Ahead” option will automatically be transferred to the “Early Access” channel. The option to connect to Skip Ahead will no longer be available in Settings> Upgrade and Security> Windows Pre-Evaluation Program.
In the coming weeks, a statement will be made about the re-availability of the “Skip Ahead” option for insiders. If you previously selected the Skip Ahead content type, you will be forced to re-enable this option. The main goal of the Skip Ahead reset is to allow testers who did not have time to join Skip Ahead before finally connecting this type of content, as well as getting rid of some inactive devices.
The option “Skip Ahead” will be available for a limited period of time until the quota for the number of insiders is closed. After reaching the set limit, the option will be unavailable again. About the re-launch of “Skip Ahead” will be announced in the coming weeks, follow the news on our website.
New in Windows 10 build 17713 (Redstone 5)
Microsoft Windows 10 October 2018 Update
The first mentions of the October 2018 Update name were also found in the current assembly: in the PowerShell command report, Get-VMHostSupportedVersion.
Microsoft Edge Enhancements
Set up the playback of multimedia content for each site. Users can now configure the resolution of playing video and audio content for a particular site in the “Website permissions” section of the “Website Authentication” panel. Click the lock icon on the left side of the address bar and select “Manage permissions”.
View word values in read mode for sites, books and PDF documents. Added a new dictionary function that allows you to view the meaning of words when reading a page or document. Select a word and see its description in the pop-up window just above. You can listen to the correct pronunciation of the word or see the detailed information. Disable the new feature and configure the types of content for which it will be available, on the General tab of the Edge settings menu.
The toolbar for working with PDF documents now shows text descriptions for icons for a better understanding of the various functions. Added new options to the panel, for example “Add notes”.
Fastening the panel. The toolbar for PDF can now be attached at the top of the document for quick access to the necessary tools. If you want, you can unfasten the panel – then it automatically collapses, and to show it again on the screen, just move the cursor to the top area.
Improved rendering. Several rendering performance optimizations have been implemented, due to which the probability of displaying a white page instead of a document is reduced.
Added the option “Text wrapping” for the function “Find / Replace“. Notepad will store previously entered values and checkboxes and automatically apply them when you reopen the Find dialog box. In addition, when you select text and open the “Find” dialog box, the selected word or a fragment of the text will be automatically placed in the query field.
Added text scaling. Added a new menu View> Zoom to change the zoom ratio. In addition, you can use the hot keys Ctrl + Plus and Ctrl + Minus or the mouse wheel with the Ctrl key pressed. The combination Ctrl + 0 allows you to restore the standard zoom level.
Added line number and column number display when text wrapping is enabled. In addition, the status bar is now displayed by default. It can be disabled in the “View” menu.
Other minor improvements:
Improved performance when opening large files in Notepad.
The combination Ctrl + Backspace allows you to delete the previous word.
The arrow keys now first cancel the selection of the text, and then move the cursor.
When you save a file in Notepad, the row and column are no longer reset to 1.
Notepad now correctly displays the lines that do not fit completely on the screen.
Biometric Authentication on a Remote Machine
Azure Active Directory and Active Directory users who use Windows Hello for Business can now use the biometric authentication method to identify on the remote desktop.
To test a new feature, start the Remote Desktop Connection application (mstsc.exe), type the name of the computer you want to connect to, and click Connect.
If authorization is performed using the technology of Windows Hello for Business, Windows will remind you about this and automatically select Windows Hello for Business for authentication in the context of the Remote Desktop session. You can click “Other options” to resort to alternative methods of identification.
New way to login to PC
Previously, IDs that were integrated with ADFS or other vendors that support the WS-Fed protocol were used to log on to the system. Now a new way of logging into a PC called “Web-input” is implemented. Web logon allows you to log in to Windows for third-party vendors that are not associated with ADFS (for example, SAML).
To experience a new way of entering:
1.Connect the Windows 10 device to the Azure AD account.
2. Configure the policy to enable the Web logon (Policy CSP / Authentication / EnableWebSignIn)
3. On the lock screen, select the “Web In” option.
4. Click the “Login” button to continue.
Fast login to a shared Windows 10 computer
If you are using Shared Computer mode in your workspace, now you will be able to log in to your account much faster. In the new assembly, the “Quick Login” option appeared, which allows you to log in almost instantly on a common Windows 10 computer.
To enable fast authorization, do the following:
1. Set the mode of the shared computer or computer for guests.
2. Configure the policy for enabling the Quick Login (Policy CSP / Authentication / EnableFastFirstSignIn)
3. When the policy is enabled, log on to the shared computer with your account and evaluate the difference!
Application Guard in Defender Windows
Application Guard in Windows Defender has a new interface in the Windows Security application. Independent users will be able to install and configure Application Guard settings in Windows Defender independently without having to change the registry settings. Users of devices managed by the group policies of the organization will be able to view the configurations of the security component that were installed by administrators to better understand the Application Guard behavior in Windows Defender.
To check the Application Guard settings in Windows Defender, open the Windows Security application and select the “Manage applications / browser” section.
In the “Isolated Internet Session” section, select the option “Install Application Guard in Windows Defender”. Install the component and reboot the device.
Select the option “Change Application Guard settings”.
Configure or check the Application Guard settings in Windows Defender.
The built-in handwriting panel will now automatically be used by default for input by the digital pen (stylus) in modern applications. Simply select a text area, such as a search string, and the panel for writing and recognizing handwriting will open. You can edit what you write with simple and intuitive gestures.
If the built-in inkpad is not supported by the application or is not available for your language pack, you can still launch the handwriting pop-up.
A complete list of improvements, changes and known bugs is available in the official announcement on the Microsoft website.
