Microsoft is rolling out Windows 10 Preview Build 17763 (RS5) for Insiders in the Fast Ring. Like the previous build, this release focuses entirely on fixing bugs and does not come with any new features or improvements.
As each new Redstone 5 build is released, we get a little closed to the Windows 10 October 2018 Update being publicly available. This upcoming Windows 10 update comes with new features such as Storage Sense, Cloud Clipboard, Your Phone App integration, redesigned Windows security, an updated Notepad, and more.
To install this latest build, you can open Settings, navigate to Windows Update, and check for new updates.
New Task Manager bugs introduced
While Microsoft is busy fixing bugs in the Redstone 5 branch, this release does introduce two new bugs with Task Manager.
Acorrding to Microsoft, in this build Task Manager no longer reports the correct CPU usage and has display issues regarding the expand arrows for background processes.
Windows 10 Insider build 17758 ISOs are also available
Also available today are the ISOs for the Windows 10 Insider build 17758. To download them, just go to the Windows Insider Preview Downloads page and sign in.

General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC
- The build watermark at the lower right-hand corner of the desktop is no longer present in this build. This doesn’t mean we’re done…
- We fixed an issue where touching a Flash element in Microsoft Edge with two or more fingers could result in the tab crashing.
- We fixed an issue where thumbnails and icons might not be rendered if there were any video files saved to the desktop.
- We fixed an issue where certain Bluetooth audio devices wouldn’t play sound in apps that also used the microphone.
- We fixed an issue resulting in an unexpectedly increased use of battery recently when using certain apps like OneNote.
- We fixed an issue in PowerShell where it wasn’t displaying characters correctly in Japanese.
- We fixed an issue resulting in display scaling factors not being applied correctly (so the UI was smaller than expected) when viewing a full screen remote desktop window on a monitor set to certain display scalings.
- Task Manager is not reporting accurate CPU usage.
- Arrows to expand “Background processes” in Task Manager are blinking constantly and weirdly.
