Windows 10 Redstone 5 Comes to Windows Insiders in the Slow Ring

Posted on July 3, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Windows, Windows 10 with 3 Comments

As we are nearing the public release of Windows 10 Redstone 5, Microsoft has started the release with a wider group of Windows Insiders. Last night, the firm released build 17692 of Redstone 5 to Windows Insiders in the Slow Ring, introducing a bunch of new features for those who are yet to try out Redstone 5.

While one of the biggest features of Redstone 5 was removed just recently, the release still brings a bunch of new features. This includes a dark theme for the File Explorer, a redesigned Game Bar, a redesigned Microsoft Edge, a brand new screenshotting experience, improvements to Cortana, improvements to Fluent Design, and much more.

Microsoft’s Jen Gentleman put together a handy list of some of the highlights in Redstone 5, so far:

If you are a Windows Insider in the Slow Ring, make sure to grab the new build from Windows Update.

    How about they actually slow down on the development of this thing they call Windows 10? One big update a year is plenty, the fact that 1803 had so many issues that they're fixing with the normal updates is showing that they can't keep up this twice a year thing.

    Please Microsoft, slow down. Even Google with Android and Apple with iOS and MacOS only do once a year big updates and nobody complains about updates being too slow; just please slow down.

    Why would I want to upgrade when I still can't print with the previous release. Apparently, I'm not the only one. This is principle stuff and the more I can't do this on my desktop the more I use my phone for other stuff.
