Microsoft Windows 10 ‘Redstone 4’ steadily offering new features

Microsoft is still in the process of adding additional features to the Windows 10 ‘Redstone 4’ test build, although March is almost here when it’s likely that the latest feature update will be finalised.

Fast Ring testers received access to the latest build on the 27 February 2018. Alongside several new enterprise features is the new Nano Server for Docker aimed at Windows users and new Windows Container images in the Server Core.

The newest build introduces an important new functionality; from now on, enterprises can run custom actions/scripts even while the feature update is still in progress.

Thanks to this, custom actions can be executed during Setup, while the two update phases are still in progress. From the latest release of Build 17110 and onwards, it’s also possible for enterprises to execute post-rollback scripts in admin or system-wide context.

Among the new fixes are the following:

  • Updated Start: it now follows the Ease of Access setting that allows scrollbar hiding to be enabled or disabled
  • Task View will no longer distort certain app icons
  • When opening the lists in Cortana’s notebook, the title bar will no longer overlap the content
  • The problem of being unable to open a new inPrivate window in Microsoft Edge straight from the taskbar while in Tablet Mode is now fixed

Redstone 4 is expected to reach its final version in March. Mainstream users should be able to access it around April 2018.
