Microsoft’s Windows 10 Build 17025 announced the Windows 10 Fall Creators update for 500 million users just one week after the general release.
Microsoft has released the new Windows 10 Build 17025 as part of the Insider preview of the Fast Ring and Skiphead branch starting today. The new build comes just over a week after the Redmond-based software major launched a general rollout of the Windows 10 Fall Creator update to more than 500 million Windows 10 users in phases.
With the new build 17025, Microsoft is tweaking the setting apps in Windows 10 even more. The new build includes a new Easy Access Settings with an advanced description of the settings that make these accessibility features easier to discover. This new build also brings advanced options under settings that give users more control over startup work.
In a blog post, Microsoft notes that Universal Windows Platform apps “configured to run at startup will now have a new option to view all available tasks and their status specified by the app developer.” Build 17025 updates Yahei fonts for Chinese (simplified) language with three extra weights, scaled glyphs, redesigned punctuation and symbols, and new hint algorithms.
In addition to these major updates, the new ‘Redstone 4’ build updates the fluent design with a lighter theme and brings minor updates, mouse input issues, touch response issues, RDP issues. Microsoft notes broken functionality among some missing issues, such as Mail, Cortana, Narrator, and some missing features in Windows Media Player. The touch swipe gesture doesn’t work for dismissing notifications from the Action Center, and there’s a noticeable screen flicker when using hotkeys or switching between virtual desktops with a touchpad.
Windows 10 Build 17025 is part of Redstone 4, which is expected to arrive in March or April next year. Microsoft has not yet officially released the main features that came in the update but it is expected to appear in Timeline, and Cloud Clipboard Build 2017.
