Latest Windows 10 Redstone 4 Update Packs Essential Edge Updates, Upgraded Quiet Hours

Posted on January 12, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Windows, Windows 10 with 22 Comments

Windows 10’s latest Insider preview build, 17074, was released late last night to Insiders in the Fast Ring. This is the first build of 2018, and it comes with a lot of new features.

The new build mostly focuses on improvements for Microsoft Edge, however. The browser now includes a completely revamped book reading experience, thanks to the improved user-interface and animations. The updated book reading experience comes with useful features such as grammar tools, a full-screen mode, and more.

Edge is getting a couple of other, actual essential features with this build, too — it can now autofill your credit card information on websites (finally!), lets you use extensions and autofill passwords when InPrivate, and vertically dock the F12 developer tools.

There are a bunch of other improvements in this build, including a supercharged Quiet Hours feature with improved customisation options, improved Settings for sound and storage, and a new embedded handwriting panel for touch devices.

You can find the full changelog here.
