Another week, another Windows 10 Insider Preview build for Insiders in the Fast ring! Today's build is 17733 and features mostly under the hood changes, a couple of removed UI elements, and the completion of File Explorer dark mode!

What's new?

  • With Build 17666 we started our journey bringing dark theme to File Explorer. Today's build marks the turning point where we've finished what we set out to do for this release.

Other changes

  • Thanks everyone for your feedback about the XAML shadows we added recently. We're taking them offline for the moment while we work on addressing some of the things you shared with us. You will also notice that the acrylic has been removed from some popup controls. They will be back in a future flight.
  • We fixed an issue from recently flights where the touch keyboard might become invisible on the screen.
  • We fixed an issue in recent flights where components of a notification with a progress bar (like the one when using nearby sharing) might flash every time the progress bar updated.
  • We fixed an issue where on certain devices if you reset your device and chose to keep files, after logging back into Windows the Sound Settings page would be unresponsive.
  • We fixed the issue where the High Contrast dropdown flashed when the values were changed.

As always, head to the Windows Blog for the complete changelog, including a list of known issues and more!

  • So, as we're now feature complete, could we get one of those very nice write-ups of all that's new with the coming update? Have all the significant features previously tested been dropped?
  • Oh, and also: is this still expected in October? Seems they're way ahead of previous updates' schedules. So maybe an earlier release?
  • Hopefully stays in October to fix and polish it up. I still have major Wi-Fi connectivity issues that are intermittent and other issues.
  • Funny, I have those too and I have nothing to do with Insider builds.
  • yes the time will probably stay In October like previous release
  • Is what new really worth updating for? I have set my machine not to update to new major updates for 200 days, give Ms a chance to try to sort out any problems that been missed.
  • Version 1809 so code finalized in September, with Insiders getting it a week or so before public release in October
  • I have a surface Pro tablet, I have tried Build 17728, 17730 and today 17733. Still always major problem..No Internet Access for Edge Browser, Microsoft store, and any apps. BUT Internet Explorer works fine.. I have reported this and no comments about the issue from Microsoft. Has anyone else had this problem?
  • Yes I have too... It's in the feedback hub a good bit so I imagine it's just taking time to track down.
  • Define "time". I have issues there reported for 2 years and nothing happened.
