Windows 10 build 17741 rolling out for Insiders in the Fast ring

Microsoft is rolling out yet another Windows 10 Redstone 5 Insider Preview build for Insiders in the Fast ring today, featuring mostly new bug fixes and under the hood improvements. Today's build is 17741, and is the second Redstone 5 build released this week.

Changes

  • Coming today for Build 17741, we've added a new entry point to Your Phone app. Notice a desktop pin? It'll take you directly to Your Phone app – for quicker access to your phone's content. Or go through the all apps list in Start Menu, or Windows key and search for Your Phone app. You pick how you get there, just get there.
  • We've updated the Emoji Panel to now support search and tooltips for the Emoji 11 emoji that were added recently. These keywords will also populate text predictions when typing with the touch keyboard.
  • We fixed an issue where the taskbar flyouts (network, volume, etc) no longer had an acrylic background in recent builds.
  • We fixed an issue affecting certain apps where after quitting the app from its systray icon, the next time the app launched it would only display its systray icon (and not the corresponding open app window).
  • We fixed an issue in recent builds resulting in Spotlight taking an unusually long time to switch pictures after selecting "Not a fan" from under "Like what you see?"
  • We're updating the image size limit for clipboard history (WIN+V) from 1MB to 4MB to accommodate the potential size of full screen screenshots taken on a high-DPI devices.
  • We fixed an issue where if you opened Cortana and then clicked the Notebook icon before starting your search, then window would end up truncated.
  • We fixed an issue where if Action Center was already open, Narrator wouldn't announce incoming notifications.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in autoplay notifications not appearing recently until you pressed WIN.
  • We fixed an issue where if you received a toast, manually dismissed it, and immediately received another toast, you would hear the second toast ding but not appear.
  • We fixed an issue where if Settings was open to "Bluetooth & Other Devices" and then minimized to the taskbar, when you tried to resume the app Settings would crash.
  • We fixed an issue from recent builds where the first time you manually selected the date in Date & Time Settings, it would revert to Jan 1st.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in the Min/Max buttons in the Microsoft Store app frame overlapping the app content if it was open when switching from tablet mode into desktop mode.
  • We fixed an issue from recent builds resulting in share target windows (aka the app you select when prompted from the Share UI) not closing when you pressed Alt+F4 or the X.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in IMEs not being able to type East Asian characters into forms in Microsoft Edge.
  • We've made some adjustments to improve the amount of CPU that cdpusersvc uses.
  • Your PC will bugcheck (GSOD) when deleting a local folder that is synced to OneDrive. [FIXED]

Known issues

  • When you use the Ease of Access Make Text bigger setting, you might see text clipping issues, or find that text is not increasing in size everywhere.
  • Narrator sometimes does not read in the Settings app when you navigate using Tab and arrow keys. Try switching to Narrator - Scan mode temporarily. And when you turn Scan mode off again, Narrator will now read when you navigate using Tab and arrows key. Alternatively, you can restart Narrator to work around this issue.
  • After setting up a Windows Mixed Reality headset for the first time on this build with motion controllers, the controllers may need to be re-paired a second time before appearing in the headset.

  • Builds coming in fast!
  • 1.5-2.5 months to go.
  • This is version 1809 so it's likely to be finalized next month, I reckon insiders will get it mid-September with full public rollout early October
  • Riiight. Like version 1803 was due in March and was actually launched on April 30.
  • It launched far earlier than that, I got it on April 23rd (on release preview ring), fast ring got it at least a week before that
  • 1803 was the APRIL update....It was due in APRIL....it was released in APRIL. SMDH.
  • That OneDrive GSOD issue seems like it should be more of a priority. It's been a known issue for some time.
  • It's now fixed in this build. Updated.
  • Cool, thanks!
  • It has? I only discovered the issue in build 17733.
  • I've had in issue since the last build where access the Favorites hub in Edge more than once would crash Edge. There was lots of feedback about the problem. Was hoping to see that in the list of fixes.
  • Version 1809 is here!
  • Does the Edge taskbar icon still say beta?
  • Nope
  • Ah yes. Acrylic hath returned to us.
  • Still issues abound with HDR performance on the builds. Still presenting with washed out colours after a few seconds of videos playing. It had appeared to have been fixed on builds 17735/38 , but the bug seems to be back with 17741
  • Edge sync not just for bookmarks? For MS more important is to fix Emoji Panel than add 'proper' feature. This system is not more for professionals- it is for kids now.
  • Lol
  • Wish the slow ring would finally get a cumulative update. So many bugs in the 17713.rs5. Had to switch back to Chrome with the Edge Beta instability. Can't even play a Mixer stream reliably.
  • Still some stability issues, at least for me, on this Build (17741). I am seeing regular Green Screens when logging out, shutting down or resuming from Sleep. I'm running this on a 1st gen Surface Book (i5 with discrete graphics). I have reported these problems on the Feedback Hub and now just hope that the next Build will be more stable otherwise it's back to 1803!
  • OK, looks like this is a known issue and still applies to the newly released 17744 Build: "You may experience a bugcheck (GSOD) when logging out of your user profile or shutting down your PC." https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2018/08/21/announcing-window...
