Microsoft Issues Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17741 to the Fast Ring

Posted on August 17, 2018 by Paul Thurrott in Windows 10 with 16 Comments

Redstone 5 development is winding down and today’s Insider Preview build is the third in a row to not include any new features. That said, this build does bring with it another way to access the Your Phone app.

“We are releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17741 (RS5) to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring,” Microsoft’s Dona Sarkar says. “We’ve added a new entry point to Your Phone app. Notice a desktop pin? It’ll take you directly to Your Phone app – for quicker access to your phone’s content.”

Exciting, right?

Beyond that, build 17741 includes a number of uninteresting fixes and just a handful of mostly non-serious known issues. Yet another indication that this thing is winding down.
