Windows-10-logoWindows 10 Redstone 5, build 17661.1001 was released on May 5, 2018. Microsoft is now focused on developing the next milestone release of Windows for the fall of 2018.

  • Screen Sketch is now an app.
  • Acrylic is now in taskview
  • Tabs can now be turned on or off when using Narrator
  • Windows Defender is now called Windows Security
  • More support for the high efficiency image format
  • When you clean install or do a PC refresh, you’ll find that the Out of Box Experience for setting up your PC now includes a page for enabling activity history sync, which will help you continue what you were doing, even when you switch devices.
  • Fixed an issue where using arrow and Page Up / Page Down keys didn’t work to scroll web pages in Microsoft Edge.
  • Fixed an issue resulting in the Game Bar not appearing for some Insiders after pressing WIN+G.

Explorer can now rotate images so its no longer needed to open paint or another program to handle that task.

Microsoft is still working on the sounds system. The goal is to consolidate the various capabilities.

We will have more once we have completed a differential check.
