Microsoft is today releasing a new Windows 10 Build 17110 to the Windows Insiders in the Fast Ring with some improvements and bug fixes. Today’s update for the operating system only adds a couple of improvements since we’re getting closer to RTM of Windows 10 Redstone 4 update.

The update doesn’t bring too many breaking changes, though it comes with some notable improvements and bug fixes. Microsoft is making some changes to the operating system, along with improvements for enterprise customers. For example, the enterprises can now create and run custom actions. Another new enterprise focused-addition is the ability to run post rollback scripts.

Windows 10 Build 17110 Full Changelog

Microsoft is finally fixing the broken buttons on Game Bar and an issue causing performance issues on low-end PCs. A bug where PDF tab in Microsoft Edge would result in GSOD has been fixed, and the software giant has also fixed an issue with the browser where the window will become invisible all of a sudden.

Microsoft is also updating Start with compatibility improvements for the new Ease of Access. The list of fixes is very long, another bug has been addressed where the pinch gesture over the open apps in Task View might not work as expected or intended since users were no longer being able to scroll down to Timeline. Windows 10’s Timeline is also getting fixes, for example, an issue where card in Timeline would not respond when pressing and holding has been addressed.

Microsoft has also addressed a bug where the content would overlap the opened lists in Cortana’s notebook. Action Center has been finally updated with fix for blurry apps issue.

This update also comes with its own list of known issues, one of the known issue causes the operating system to enter reboot loop, Microsoft has also published a workaround advising the users to create a bootable ISO on a USB drive.

It is worth noting that this build is not available to the Skip Ahead users since Microsoft is releasing Redstone 5 builds for users who are enrolled in the Skip Ahead ring. Skip Ahead is receiving builds from rs_prerelease branch (Redstone 5 builds). While on the other hand, Fast Ring Insiders are still on Redstone 4.

Microsoft, however, plans to move Redstone 4 Insiders to Redstone 5 branch when the company finalizes the Spring Creators Update and ships it to the production ring. Windows 10 Redstone 4 will be RTM-ready next month, while in April, Skip Ahead and Fast will be brought back in sync.
