Microsoft Releases New Windows 10 Redstone 4 Build

Microsoft Releases New Windows 10 Redstone 4 Build

With the release of new Windows 10 RS4 Build 17120 for Insiders in the Fast ring, Microsoft is introducing new improvements for Windows Defender Application Guard based on the feedback from its customers. This caused a lot of opposition from the users who wanted to stay with their older versions of Windows and they eventually blocked getting Windows 10 updates.

We've also made updates to Windows Defender System Guard.

"This happened to me last night", said a user sharing his experience on the AskWoody tech support website.

Of course, we already know that this next version of Windows 10 will put a magnifying glass on things like artificial intelligence, gaming, HDR video and security, among other features.

"I have Dell XPS8900 with version 1703 and when the update finished, I had version 1709, but no sound, no color ( everything black and white ), reinstall software notifications and errors saying certain shortcut keys are not available", the user added.

A message left with his spokesman following the verdict was not immediately returned. Zhou asked. "The government didn't choose Todd Howe as a witness".

Microsoft admitted its blunder. As always, this build is not ideal, but it does pack some improvements and a few known issues with Windows Mixed Reality which you need to take note of. The changelog was just released for Windows 10 Redstone 5, giving us insight into what exactly we can expect from this upcoming release.

The update was meant primarily for Windows 10 v1507 and v1511, two Windows 10 versions released in 2015 that are now officially end-of-life.

The users who got their PCs updated because of this issue can switch back to an earlier version of Windows within 10 days after the update has been installed. After a middling user experience with Windows 8, the company truly took a step forward with the release of Windows 10 - perhaps even big enough of a jump to warrant skipping right over Windows 9.

Users who mistakenly received this update can downgrade if they want to. To switch back, open Settings go to Update & Security, click on Recovery and click Get started from Go back to the previous version of Windows 10. This time, the latest details come directly from Microsoft itself. It happened before in November 2017 and January 2018 when Patch Tuesday security updates accidentally upgraded some users.
