Slow ring Insiders get first shot of Redstone 5 with Windows 10 build 17692.1004

Thus far, the next major Windows 10 feature update, codenamed Redstone 5, has only been in testing on the Fast ring. But Microsoft has a surprise in store today for those waiting in the wings of the Slow ring, with its first taste of Redstone 5 now rolling out as build number 17692.1004.

Since it's the first Redstone 5 build to hit the Slow ring, build 17692.1004 includes a slew of new features, ranging from the SwiftKey-powered on-screen keyboard and a dark theme for File Explorer to a redesigned Game Bar and more.

Additionally, this build packs a handful of fixes that weren't originally a part of build 17692 on the Fast ring. Here's a look:

  • We fixed the issue where the login screen would crash in a loop when the active sign-in method is set to Picture Password.
  • We fixed the issue where DRM video playback in Microsoft Edge from websites such as Netflix was broken.
  • We fixed the issue where Keyboard Settings found under Ease of Access were missing text as well as visible values in the two combo boxes.
  • We have improved reliability and performance for launching Start.

If you're on the Slow ring, you can snag build 17692.1004 via Windows Update now. For more, check out Microsoft's full release notes.
