Microsoft released Windows 10 preview build 17107 for PCs to the insiders in the Fast Ring

 

What's new in this build?

In this build, Microsoft focused to keep the computer PCs always up-to-date. In an effort to bring this improvement, they have implemented a feature that will handle the way it updates when connected to AC power source.

. . . introducing a change in behavior to Windows Update that is designed to be more proactive at keeping PCs updated. In RS4, now when Windows Update scans, downloads, and installs on a PC with AC power – it will prevent the PC from going to sleep when it is not in active use, for up to 2 hours when receiving an update in order to give Windows Update more opportunity to succeed.

General improvements and fixes

  • fixed an issue where Settings would crash when you tried to open Themes.
  • fixed an issue where the Settings tile didn't have a name if you pinned it to Start.
  • updated About Settings to include at a glance entries for the two new Windows Defender pillars.
  • fixed a typo in Storage Sense Settings.
  • fixed an issue resulting in all dropdowns in Settings appearing blank until clicked.
  • fixed an issue that could result in Settings crashing after having navigated to and left Sound Settings.
  • fixed an issue where closing certain apps after using in-app search could result in them hanging on the splash screen the next time they were launched.
  • fixed an issue where plugging in an external optical drive (DVD) will cause an Explorer.exe crash.
  • fixed an issue resulting in the hamburger button in Windows Defender overlapping the home button.
  • fixed an issue where certain games using Easy Anti Cheat could result in the system experiencing a bugcheck (KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED).
  • fixed an issue where we had observed seeing longer-than-normal delays during install at the 88% mark. Some delays were as long as 90 minutes before moving forward.
  • fixed an issue resulting in the Windows Defender offline scan not working in recent builds.
  • Some Insiders may have noticed a new message when holding down the power button which says Please release the power button. We just need a few more seconds to shut down. This is an Insider-only feature that gathers additional diagnostic data for situations where holding down the power button was used to recover an unresponsive or nonfunctional system.

 

To know the list of known issues present in this build, you can read the original 'Release notes' published by Microsoft.

 

This is worth a point to mention that, last week the giant company released two builds to the insiders. The first one was the Windows 10 build 17101, which was released to the insiders in the fast ring. It was released from the RS4 active branch which contained a set of improvements and fixes to stabilize the final release.

 

The other one was the Windows 10 build 17604, which was released from the new RS5 pre-release branch, to the insiders who have opted for Skip Ahead.
