Windows 10 Redstone 5 ISO Files for Build 17738 Are Now Available
Microsoft has today released Windows 10 Redstone 5 Preview Build 17738 ISO files. Today’s files come a week after the build was rolled out to the Insiders in the Slow ring. While Microsoft initially made Windows Insiders wait quite a long time, it appears the company is finally getting into the rhythm of getting ISO files out. As we get nearer to the final public release of Windows 10 October 2018 Update, we will hopefully be seeing more of these files.
ISO files for Windows 10 Preview Build 17738 are available for Enterprise, Home China, and general preview. You can use any of these to clean install Windows 10 Redstone 5 Preview Build 17738 after downloading them from here.

It should be noted that Windows 10 17738 didn’t offer any new features but did bring in quite a few bug fixes, including:

- We fixed an issue where downloading a big file in Microsoft Edge would stop at the 4gb mark.
- We fixed an issue where clicking the “more” button in Microsoft Edge’s inline definition pop up when reading in recent flights would open a blank pane.
- We fixed an issue where items in Microsoft Edge’s Settings and More menu would become truncated when the option to increase text size was enabled in Settings.
- We fixed an issue where using Find on page in Microsoft Edge didn’t highlight/select the current instance of the result.
- We fixed an issue where after resetting Microsoft Edge saved favorites would get stuck showing a star next to the favorite name rather than populating the website’s favicon (if available).
- We fixed an issue where text copied from certain websites in Microsoft Edge couldn’t be pasted into other UWP apps.
- We fixed an issue impacting Teams resulting all unsent typed text disappearing following the completion of an emoji composition (for example () being turned into a smiley).

- We fixed an issue that could result in the left side of the Microsoft Store’s My Library section becoming unexpectedly blurry until moused over.
- We fixed a recent issue resulting in an increase in the amount of time taken to open large files in Notepad when word wrap was enabled.
- We fixed an issue where after setting a pin and removing it, the option to setup a pin from the lock screen could get stuck as the default login method, rather than the login screen remembering your preferred login method.
- We fixed an issue resulting in WSL’s tar and curl commands not working on x86 devices.
- We fixed an issue resulting in text prediction and shapewriting not working when typing in Russian using the touch keyboard.
