Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17650 for Skip Ahead

By Dona Sarkar and Brandon LeBlanc

 

Hello Windows Insiders!

 

Today, we are releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17650 (RS5) to Windows Insiders who opted in to Skip Ahead.

 

What’s new in Build 17650

 

Windows Defender Security Center gets a Fluent Design refresh

We’ve heard your feedback and when you install this build you’ll find we’ve updated Windows Defender Security Center (WDSC) to include the Fluent Design elements you know and love. You’ll also notice we’ve adjusted the spacing and padding around the app and will now dynamically size the categories on the main page if more room is needed for extra info. Last but not least, we’ve also updated the title bar of the app so that it will now use your accent color if you’ve enabled that option in Color Settings – with Sets enabled, you will see this color in the WDSC tab.

Windows Defender Firewall now supports Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) processes

You can add specific rules for a WSL process in Windows Defender Firewall, just as you would for any Windows process. Also, Windows Defender Firewall now supports notifications for WSL processes. For example, when a Linux tool wants to allow access to a port from the outside (like SSH or a web server like nginx), the Windows Defender Firewall will prompt to allow access just like it would for a Windows process when the port starts accepting connections. This was first introduced in Build 17627.

 

General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC

  • We fixed an issue where File Explorer would always open with the ribbon minimized, rather than remembering how you’d left it.
  • We fixed an issue where elements on the main page of the Windows Defender Security Center app would slightly change size on mouse hover.
  • We fixed an issue where non-default languages might unexpectedly have the option to remove in Settings greyed out.
  • We fixed an issue where the Color Filters and High Contrast icons were switched in Settings.
  • We fixed an issue where clicking links in Settings that launched other apps would result in Settings crashing and nothing else happening.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in some people experiencing a Settings crash when navigating to Apps > Default Apps > Set defaults by App.

Known issues

  • On resuming from sleep, the desktop may be momentarily visible before the Lock screen displays as expected.
  • When Movies & TV user denies access to its videos library (through the “Let Movies & TV access your videos library?” popup window or through Windows privacy settings), Movies & TV crashes when the user navigates to the “Personal” tab.
  • Tiling and cascading windows, including features like “View Side by Side” in Word, will not work for inactive tabs.
  • The Office Visual Basic Editor window will currently be tabbed but is not intended to be in the future.
  • Opening an Office document while the same app has an existing document open may cause an unintended switch to the last active document. This will also happen when closing a sheet in Excel while other sheets remain open.
  • Local files or non-Microsoft cloud files will not be automatically restored and no error message will be provided to alert the user to that fact.
  • Sets UX for Office Win32 desktop apps is not final.  The experience will be refined over time based on feedback.
  • The top of some Win32 desktop app windows may appear slightly underneath the tab bar when created maximized. To work around the issue, restore and re-maximize the window.
  • Closing one tab may sometimes minimize the entire set.
  • We’re aware of an issue that causes Narrator to read extra text when invoking Alt + Tab, and we’re working on a fix.
  • Using arrow and Page Up / Page Down keys doesn’t work to scroll webpages in Microsoft Edge. You’ll need to use another input method (mouse, touch, or touchpad).
  • If you complete the setup for a Windows Mixed Reality headset on this build, the headset will remain black until it is unplugged and reconnected to the PC.

No downtime for Hustle-As-A-Service,
Dona <3

Per request of the BleepingComputer Administration:

 

It has been brought to my attention that I have infringed on the Microsoft Windows Insiders Program copy write by posting the topic announcement verbatim in this thread. I offer my humble apology for any wrong doing to Microsoft, Donna Sarkar, Brandon LeBlanc, Grinler, the BleepingComputer community along with all public readers of this forum.  As I strive for the utmost respect for any and all material found on the internet and I pride myself to follow rules, I would never initially violate any rules of copy write of material found on the Internet.
