Microsoft Releases New Windows 10 Redstone 4 Build

Posted on March 13, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Windows 10 with 6 Comments

Redmond is releasing a new build of Windows 10 Redstone 4 to Windows Insiders today. The company today pushed out build 17120 to Insiders in the Fast Ring, and it comes with some new improvements to Windows Defender Application Guard.

Microsoft says Windows Defender Application Guard (WDAG)’s startup times have been significantly improved with Redstone 4. WDAG in Microsoft Edge also now lets users download files to the host, instead of only letting you download files to the WDAG container which makes it impossible to access the downloaded files once you close the WDAG instance.

There aren’t a lot of other new things in this build, apart from the usual bug fixes. Microsoft is going to be releasing the update–possibly called the Spring Creators Updatenext month, and it is currently busy putting finishing touches on the update.

    The Windows 10 rot, overbloat and the pain of this continuous, high risk upgrade cycle is really starting to take hold now. Many don't care anymore about new versions and yet more features they'll never use. They just want a stable, secure system to do their work, but MS won't allow that - YOU WILL UPGRADE AND YOU WILL LIKE IT - say the Microsoft overlords.

      It’s an insider build, bro! Nobody outside of us who choose the insider rings will see this until the whole thing comes down the pipe in April.

      And none of the normal non-tech friends I have ever complain about the updates. Hell, they all say the same thing. “I’m sure glad Windows 10 updates less than” 7 or 8.

      Amen to that!

        Well, that's a lie. All systems update once a month. Windows 10 is way more problematic though. Windows 7 and 8 only get patches. Windows 10 gets whole new Windows versions making everything more buggy and messy.

      Nobody forces to to upgrade, you can stay in the current version for business to be safe.

    I have no issue with Windows 10, for me its stable. I use it for my work every day, (also over 6 figures). I have disabled most of the telemetry. I would never be able to back to windows 7.

    The only store app I use for work is the MS to do list app. My other store apps I have bought are games. Forza 7 is a wonderful game, and I think its better than project cars.

    I will never use an insider build for work (for obvious reasons), I run my insider builds in a virtual machine.
