Windows 10 build 17074 gets a horde of new updates


Yesterday, Microsoft released a brand new Windows 10 PC Insider Preview build for Insiders in the Fast and Skip Ahead rings that included several notable improvements.

Firms that want to update to the build, version 1709, can receive it from the week of January 22nd, when it will be available from Windows Update, Windows Update for Business, WSUS and the Volume Licensing Service Center.

If sound is unavailable on your computer after installing the latest Windows 10 build, you're not the only one.

For those unaware, the Microsoft Messaging app in Windows 10 on PC is used to show SMS conversations that are synced from a Windows phone, as well as carrier-specific SMS messages on Windows 10 PCs with cellular connectivity.

Rather than wait for Microsoft's signal, enterprises are encouraged to roll out upgrades, albeit to internal piloting programs, as soon as consumers are offered them, and then move on to environment-wide deployment as soon as testing is completed and corporate IT staff are confident workflows won't be sundered. You can safely and security select the preferred card from a drop-down menu to autofill necessary fields, and cards linked to a Microsoft account are automatically available in web forms. You can grant individual extensions permission to run in InPrivate, and Microsoft is working with developers to enable extensions more while InPrivate mode.

If there's any updated guidance for those who haven't yet received the Fall Creators Update, I'll add to this post once I hear back. Microsoft rolled out the Fall Creators Update for Windows 10 in October 2017 which that includes support for Virtual Reality (VR) and Mixed Reality (MR). E-books stored in Edge as EPub or PDF files can now be read in full screen. See below for other EPUB, PDF, and Reading View changes.

The preview build also contains a bevy of Microsoft Edge enhancements, including a revamped Hub interface. With the Creators Update, Microsoft officials told this group of users the company would continue investigating in the hopes of getting the updates to them. Remember, the next (unnamed) version of Microsoft's Windows 10, aka Redstone 4, is due this spring, most likely in late March or early April. Microsoft typically expects the long-term servicing branch Windows 10 versions to be used only with Internet of Things (IoT) devices or devices that can't tolerate frequent OS updates.

Matches play out automatically but you may change tactics and substitute players to influence the outcome. Version 1607 (Anniversary Update) and 1703 (Creators Update) are to fall off the support list in March 2018 and September 2018, respectively, while 1709 has until March 2019. "This will consistently improve the experience of our international customers with Windows".
