New Windows 10 RedStone 5 Insider Preview available in the Skip Ahead Ring

A new Windows 10 Insider Preview Build is now available for Windows 10 Insiders on Skip Ahead

The RS5 build number is 17634 (RS5) and brings the following changes:

Search is now available in Calendar for Windows 10!

Now you can find past or future events by searching for the name, location, people included or words in the event body. Events that match your search will be clearly visible on your calendar, while those that don’t will be greyed-out so you can find what you need quickly.

Search will work for Outlook, Hotmail, Live and Office 365 accounts.  The Calendar app does not yet support searching Exchange Server, Gmail, Yahoo or other IMAP calendars.

Cortana Show Me now supports voice queries

Last week, Microsoft introduced Cortana Show Me, a preview app designed to show you around Windows 10 settings.  This build brings improvements to the feature – you can now launch the app through voice queries. Simply say to Cortana, “Show me how to change my background,” and you’ll get the previous help results, with a new “Let’s go” button below, which launches the guided help experience. The app is available in English (US and Great Britain) and in German, and there are 15 settings guides. While most Insiders don’t need pointers like this, it’s for all the friends and family Microsoft have who need a pointer – please share it with them.

You can download Cortana Show Me from Microsoft Store.

Note: If you’re using keyboard navigation with your device, you will need to use Alt + Tab to move between Settings and Cortana Show Me.

Here are some voice queries to try:

  • Update Windows – Try, “Update my Windows device”
  • Check if an app is installed – Try, “How to see what apps are installed”
  • Uninstall an app – Try “How to uninstall apps”
  • Change your desktop background – Try, “Show me how to change my background”
  • Use Airplane Mode – Try, “How do I turn on airplane mode”
