Microsoft releases Windows 10 builds 17134.286 and 16299.666 - here's what's new

Windows 10 Build 17763 Released As Microsoft Continues to Squash Bugs

After the addition of a heavy handed dissuasion against not using the Edge browser, Microsoft is pulling the warning from the latest Windows 10 preview.

For Windows Insiders there are likely to be few surprises in the list of features being removed from Windows 10, version 1809.

The October 2018 Update will introduce a bunch of new and improved features to Windows 10, as these twice-yearly major upgrades always do. This upcoming Windows 10 update comes with new features such as Storage Sense, Cloud Clipboard, Your Phone App integration, redesigned Windows security, an updated Notepad, and more. We've changed Windows 10 to use ClearType by default, so we're removing this setting as it is no longer necessary.

We fixed an issue where certain Bluetooth audio devices wouldn't play sound in apps that also used the microphone.

We're releasing the limpet.exe tool, used to access TPM for Azure connectivity, as open source. Use the Phone page in the Settings app to sync your mobile phone with your PC.

The information previously available in the TPM management console is now available on the Device security page in the Windows Defender Security Center.

The current defaults and options in Windows 1803

We're no longer publishing new updates to the WEDU server.

Microsoft notes that when you install the next big update, you'll find that the Phone Companion app is no longer on your system.

The companion device framework (CDF) APIs enable wearables and other devices to unlock a PC. As ever, though, the rollout will doubtless be spread over several months, so you may well be waiting until later in the year before you get all the new goodies from the update.

So, for example, the OneSync service has been dropped - which syncs data across the Calendar, Mail and People apps - mainly because Microsoft has introduced a sync engine to the Outlook application which does the same job.

We fixed an issue resulting in display scaling factors not being applied correctly (so the UI was smaller than expected) when viewing a full screen remote desktop window on a monitor set to certain display scalings.

The old Snipping Tool for taking screenshots will for now remain available on Windows 10, but it's one of the apps Microsoft has now stopped actively developing. We're no longer developing the Snipping Tool as a separate app but are instead consolidating its functionality into Snip & Sketch.
