We are nearing the public release of Windows 10 Redstone 5. Bringing a new set of general fixes and improvements, Microsoft has today released Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17754 to Insiders in the Fast Ring. In today’s post, the company clarified that the removal of the watermark from the Preview Builds is in no way a hint that the development process is done or if the build is the RTM release.

Here are all the details of changes, improvements, and fixes that Windows 10 17754 brings to the Fast Ring

  • The build watermark at the lower right-hand corner of the desktop is no longer present in this build. This does not mean this is the final build as we are not done yet. We’re just now beginning the phase of checking in final code to prepare for the final release.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in reduced Action Center reliability in recent flights.
  • We fixed an issue where if you opened one of the taskbar flyouts (like network or volume), and then quickly tried to open another, it wouldn’t work.
  • We fixed an issue for people with multiple monitors where if the Open or Save Dialog was moved between monitors some elements might become unexpectedly tiny.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in certain apps crashing recently when setting focus to the in-app search box.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in certain games, like League of Legends, not launching/connecting properly in recent flights.
  • We fixed an issue where clicking on web links in PWAs such as Twitter didn’t open the browser.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in certain PWAs not rendering correctly after the app had been suspended then resumed.
  • We fixed an issue where pasting multi-line text into certain websites using Microsoft Edge might add unexpected empty lines between each line.
  • We fixed a crash in recent flights when using the pen to ink in Microsoft Edge’s web notes.
  • We fixed a high hitting Task Manager crash in recent flights.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in Settings crashing for Insiders with multiple monitors when changing various options under Display Settings in the last few flights.
  • We fixed a crash when clicking the Verify link on the Accounts Settings page in recent flights.
  • We fixed an issue where the contents of the Apps & Features page wouldn’t load until the apps list was ready, resulting in the page appearing blank for a time.
  • We fixed an issue where the list on Settings of built-in phrases for the Pinyin IME was blank.
  • We fixed an issue in Narrator where activating Microsoft Edge history items would not work in Scan mode.
  • We made some improvements in Narrator Selection when moving forward in Microsoft Edge. Please try this out and use the Feedback hub app to let us know any issues you encounter.
