Windows Desktop: 17751

The Insiders team has released build 17751 to the fast ring today. Some sites have said that this is the final build, but as Brandon LeBlanc has said via Twitter and this blog post :

  • The build watermark at the lower right-hand corner of the desktop is no longer present in this build. This does not mean this is the final build as we are not done yet. We’re just now beginning the phase of checking in final code to prepare for the final release.

So, we are getting close to the final release to consumer for this latest update, but this build it not quite there yet. As usual, it’s ready when it’s ready. So, what’s the official name of this update? Creators Update, Spring Update, etc.? Just called “Windows 10 October 2018 Update”.  Simple and sweet.

Just a few small known issues this build. Make sure they won’t affect you too much before you update!

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.

  • Clicking on web links in PWAs such as Twitter doesn’t open the browser in this build. We’re working on a fix.
