Following the release of a Preview Build from the Redstone 4 branch, Microsoft has started to roll out some improvements and fixes to those signed up for the Skip Ahead branch.

Don't forget to check the list of known bugs too since this branch is still in its very early stage of development and potentially more riddled with bugs than the stable Redstone 4 builds.

Known issues in Windows 10 Redstone 5 17627

  • If you open Settings and clicking on any links to the Microsoft Store or links in tips, Settings will crash. This includes the links to get themes and fonts from the Microsoft Store, as well as the link to Windows Defender.
  • When opening .html or .pdf files from the local system (double-click, right-click > open), Microsoft Edge will not render the loaded content if Microsoft Edge wasn’t already running before opening the file. To work around the issue, you can open the file again without closing Microsoft Edge.
