Microsoft Finally Provides Windows 10 S to Insiders

Another week, another Redstone 5 build. This one includes improvements to Sets, Microsoft Edge, Setup, and more.

Here’s what’s new.

Sets improvements. In one of those changes that is obvious only after it’s happened, Microsoft is adding a new tab page for Sets-based windows, similar to what you see in Edge and other browsers, but highlighting apps that were recently grouped in Sets. This new tab page is common to the one in Microsoft Edge so you can toggle between apps and websites.

Wireless projection improvements. You’ll now see a banner at the top of the screen when you are wireless projecting your display, similar to the one in remote desktop connections. This banner can be used to manage the connection, and tune it for gaming, video, and productivity use cases.

Microsoft Edge improvements. Microsoft Edge now supports Web Authentication (in preview) so that users can use Windows Hello and external FIDO2 Security Keys and other external authenticators to securely sign-in to websites.

Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) improvements. Microsoft delivers a new version of RSAT with each version of Windows 10, but admins, IT pros, and others who need these tools have had to manually download the package with each upgrade. Now, RSAT is available via the Manage optional features interface in Windows 10 and will automatically survive OS upgrades.

Setup improvements. Microsoft is updating Windows Setup yet again and is now providing a peek during upgrades too, so you can optionally step through the process or skip right to the desktop as before.

Check out the Microsoft blog post for a full list of changes, improvements, and fixes and known issues, in particular for Sets and Office.
