Windows 10 Build 17744 arrives for Insiders on the Fast Ring

Microsoft has released Windows 10 Build 17744 to Windows Insiders in the Fast RIng. As RS5 (Windows 10 1809) has headed into the finish line, there are few to no new features in this build. Instead, Microsoft has fixed bugs which crashed apps when using timeline, and another which caused Cortana to crash more often than usual.

There are still some known issues remaining. GSOD’s might occur if you log out or shut down your PC, the Ease of Access text improvement feature may not work consistently, and some users may find that they need to re-pair their mixed reality headsets after an initial set up on this build.

The full list of changes and improvements is available below.

General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC

  • We fixed an issue that resulted in certain apps crashing when sending Timeline activities.
  • We fixed an impactful race condition in recent flights resulting in Cortana crashing when launching tips and doing web searches.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in the nearby sharing section of the Share UI not being visible for some users despite being enabled.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in the contents of the Microsoft Edge window becoming offset from its window frame.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in the spellchecking menu appearing in the wrong place when you right-clicked on a misspelt word in Microsoft Edge.
  • We fixed an issue for Insiders using Windows 10 in S Mode recently resulting opening Word from a Word Online document not working.
  • We fixed an issue in Narrator so when toggling a checkbox with a braille display and Narrator, the displayed state is now updated and the control information is maintained on the display.

Known issues

  • You may experience a bugcheck (GSOD) when logging out of your user profile or shutting down your PC.
  • 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.

If you’re a Fast Ring Insider, you can download the update from the Settings app now.
