[What’s new] Windows 10 Redstone 5 Build 17672 available now for Skip Ahead & Fast Ring

So, here is the new Redstone 5 Build after Microsoft decided to release Windows 10 April 2018 update to the public. Windows 10 Redstone 5 Build 17672 is now available for both Skip Ahead and Fast Ring.

The Build 17672 brings new feature like Windows Security improvements and more. Check the complete what’s new changelog below.

What’s new in Windows 10 Redstone 5 Build 17672:

Windows Security Improvements

The Windows Security Center (WSC) service now requires antivirus products to run as a protected process to register. Products that have not yet implemented this will not appear in the Windows Security UI, and Windows Defender Antivirus will remain enabled side-by-side with these products.

For testing purposes, you can disable this new behavior in Windows Insider builds by creating the following registry key and rebooting the device.  This key will be removed as we get closer to release.

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center\Feature
DisableAvCheck (DWORD) = 1

Other Changes:

  • You can now refresh the Books pane in Microsoft Edge using a pull gesture.
  • When you pin books to Start from Microsoft Edge you will now see a live tile that cycles between the book cover and your current completion progress.
  • When printing PDFs from Microsoft Edge, you’ll find a new option to choose the scale of your print out (Actual size, or Fit to page).
  • We’ve updated Timeline so that in addition to seeing the number of available tabs to restore associated with a particular Sets activity, you can now cycle through them.
  • We’ve made some adjustments to improve the quality of audio when recording clips using the game bar (WIN+G). Thanks, everyone who shared feedback about this – please take a moment to try it out in today’s build.
  • When you hover over the leaf icon in Task Manager’s Status column, you will now see a tooltip describing what it means (this app is suspending processes to help improve system performance).
  • Building on our work from Build 17639, in addition to showing Bluetooth battery level in Settings for supported devices, you will now see a notification when one of those devices is low on battery.
  • For our WSL fans out there: if you’ve enabled WSL, you’ll now see an option to “Open Linux Shell here” when you Shift + Right-click on the whitespace of a File Explorer folder.
  • We’ve introduced preview support for same-site cookies in Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11.
