Hands-on with Windows 10 build 17093 showcasing new changes and improvements!

We're back with another build video, showcasing all the noteworthy new changes, features and enhancements present in the latest Windows 10 Insider Preview builds. This week, we're taking a look at build 17093, which includes a few noteworthy additions including changes to the Xbox Game bar, Fluent design, Focus assist, eye tracking and more!

We also take a look at a couple of changes that were introduced in build 17083, as we didn't cover that build and there were a couple of new changes worthy of note such as the name change from Quiet Hours to Focus assist. So consider this weeks build video to be more of a hybrid between 17083 and 17093.

Build 17093 is now available to Insiders in the Fast and Skip Ahead rings. You can check out the changelog for this build here. Make sure you let us know below if we missed any undocumented changes! We're at the tail end of Redstone 4 development now, which means we're not expecting any new big changes to show up before RS4 RTM. You never know, however.

  • Awesome update! Looking forward to it.
  • Any chance of a video showing PWA support?
  • Want these features on Windows 10 soon
    1. Gadgets or option to pin tiles on desktop
    2. Save and sync start menu tiles layout
    3. PWAs for Google Services
    4. Xbox Mode with UI similar to Xbox on the Action Center(along with tablet mode that exists now)
    5. UWP Windows explorer
    6. Provide option to cast screen to TV through Xbox
    7. Make eye tracking hardware integrated in future laptops and Surface devices
  • 3 won't happen, ever. Especially now that Windows 10 S isn't even a thing, it was the only reason Google would need to have a Windows Store presence
  • Why not? Google is a big supporter of PWA's and they don't have to actively publish it in the Microsoft store. Microsoft will just simply put it there for them. PWA's are basically online apps kind of like websites. They put there PWA's online and everybody can use it. It's a platform independent format. What Microsoft will be doing in the store with PWA's is simply showing a list of available options on the web. Just like the search results in a search engine .
  • @Zac use Windows hot keys to be more productive. Try Windows+I next time.
  • Wish it were a hands-on article with screenshots instead of a video. Too much investment and not able to discreetly see it in public.
  • Mostly good, however Edge extensions are very problematic.
  • Fantastic UI until the tile pop-up appears. MS please swap this for a timeline on the desktop or 'origami' styled apps which open up to reveal more features.
  • After upgrading to 17093, my PC keep rebooting on bios. Windows never starts. Super...
