Microsoft releases a new Redstone 4 build to Insiders in the Fast ring. "Redstone 4" is the next feature update for Windows 10 after Fall Creators Update. Insiders who joined Skip Ahead are getting Windows 10 Build 16353.
Development of Redstone 3 is nearly at an end, so for Insiders who want to remain on the cutting edge of developer builds, new builds from the Redstone 3 branch are literally boring. A new Skip Ahead option gives them a chance to 'skip ahead' and go directly to the future Redstone 4 branch right now. See how to enable the Skip Ahead option.
The following image shows how Skip Ahead works.Microsoft describes it as follows:
- If you DIDN’T opt in to Skip Ahead, you’re receiving the latest builds of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (RS3). You will eventually start receiving builds for the next feature update of Windows 10 (RS4) once we release the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.
- If you DID opt in to Skip Ahead, you’re receiving early builds for the next feature update of Windows 10 (RS4).
The change log for Windows 10 build 16353 looks as follows:
- When the Action Center is black (the default option) the “clear all”, “expand”/”collapse”, and “see more” link text will now all use your accent color – making them pop more and improving discoverability.
- We’ve updated the Action Center to now support a two finger touch gesture to dismiss all notifications. Place two fingers vertically within the Action Center near the edge opposite to the side of your screen. Then slide these fingers towards the side of the screen. You will notice all notification groups following your fingers and then dismissing as you slide your fingers off the side of the screen.
- We fixed an issue in XAML resulting in text animations appearing slightly blurry in the last flight until the animation had stopped (for example, when loading the main page of Settings).
- We fixed an issue resulting in the taskbar being unexpectedly thick if you booted up the PC while plugged in to an external monitor with a different DPI.
- We fixed an issue that caused minimized per-monitor DPI aware windows to miss DPI changes and end up with a mix of DPI scaling upon restoring.
- We fixed an issue from recent flights where when Slideshow was enabled resuming from sleep a second time might place the Lock screen in a state where it couldn’t be dismissed without pressing Ctrl + Alt + Del.
- We fixed an issue resulting in an unexpected change in mouse sensitivity in the last flight for PCs using non-default display scaling.
- We fixed an issue resulting in Asphalt 8 not accepting input in recent flights.
- We fixed an issue resulting in progress wheels on certain websites in Microsoft Edge unexpectedly moving out of place during their rotation.
- We fixed an issue where the Windows Hello strings would appear on top of the page when performing a pin reset from the login screen.
The list of known issues is not available.
