Windows 10 Redstone 4 Preview 17127 Released for Fast Ring Insiders


Microsoft has started to roll out Windows 10 Redstone 4 Insider Preview build 17127 to the Fast ring Insiders. As we wait for the company to finalize the upcoming version of Windows 10, the company is continuing to deliver bug fixes and the list of known issues is also getting smaller by the day.

However, while some are expecting for the RTM build to drop this week, we are still seeing new features being tested. Whether it's going to be called Windows 10 Spring Creators Update or something else is also unknown as Microsoft has been unusually quiet on the naming or release date of the upcoming Windows 10 version.

Here is everything that is new in Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17127.

Cortana Improvements

A new profile page! We’re introducing a new server-powered profile page in Cortana for you to add and edit your favorite places. The places you add are used to give you traffic updates for your daily commute, and let you easily set reminders when you arrive or leave your places. To get to this page, head to the Notebook section of Cortana and click the button to the right of your name. This is available for all Cortana markets*.

This will soon extend beyond places to cover your Interests, Family, Accounts and more. Stay tuned for updates!

Cortana’s new Notebook goes international with improved performance: We’ve received some great feedback about our updated Notebook design announced with Build 17063, and are happy to share that this new design is now available for all markets* and languages where Cortana is supported. In addition several performance improvements have been deployed that should make Notebook load faster. Note, some experiences may vary depending on the market you are in.

Learn to use a Skill in Notebook: Default Skills in Cortana’s Notebook (like Weather, Sports, and News) now come with a set of tips for questions you can ask Cortana to get you started – either click the suggestion, type it out yourself, or just talk to Cortana and she’ll pull up the information you requested.

Starting today, these changes will be rolling out to all Insiders in supported markets who are on RS4 and RS5 builds. We’d love to here your feedback – click here to open Feedback Hub and send us feedback on your experience with Cortana. In case you missed it, here’s a summary of some of the recent changes we’ve made based on what you’ve told us, including email search and more!

*Cortana markets: United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, Canada, India, Spain, China, Mexico, France, Italy, Japan, Brazil

Windows Mixed Reality

With this build, the Windows Mixed Reality Team would like to let you know about a few things as you try out the new Windows Mixed Reality features:

  • We fixed the issue where the inbox apps would fail to load inside of Windows Mixed Reality.
    We’re still investigating some rare instances where newly placed holograms appear empty and the shell may restart when switching between places.
