Windows 10 Redstone 5 Build 17677 Offers Sneak Peek - [briefly]

Microsoft has released yet another Redstone 5 build, which if sticking with the current naming scheme, will be called the Fall 2018 Update when it arrives to the population at large later this year. The new build (17677) is available Windows Insiders who have either subscribed to the Fast ring or opted in to Skip Ahead, both of which allow for testing out future builds way ahead of time. Naturally there are likely to be several bugs and, in some cases, broken features, so you should probably avoid the Fast ring if you're on a mission critical system of any sort. On the flip side, those can afford to deal with potential problems can experience new features before everyone else.

In this case, build 17677 introduces several improvements to Microsoft's Edge browser, including a redesigned 'Settings and more' menu. Microsoft says the redesign makes it easier to find various options, which are now organized into groups with icons for each entry and keyboard shortcuts where applicable. Microsoft also made it easier to organize the groups of tabs that users set aside. "Once you've set a group of tabs aside, choose the 'Tabs you've set aside' icon (top left corner), and click on the label for any group to rename it," the company explains. In addition, there are more options in the downloads pane, including 'Show in folder' and 'Copy link' in the right-click menu for downloads. Outside of Edge, the new build introduces improvements to Narrator, kernel debugging, and the Task Manager (as it pertains to memory reporting), and gives mobile broadband (LTE) connectivity a makeover. Beyond that, Microsoft baked in a whole bunch of bug fixes.

Redstone 5 will likely land on PCs in final form this September or October. Microsoft aims to deliver to major updates to Windows 10 annually, and we've already seen the first one for 2018 with the April 2018 Update (Redstone 4) last month.
