Microsoft releases Windows 10 build 17758 to the Fast ring - here's what's changed

It's been exactly four days since the last Windows 10 Insider Preview, but there's a new one today. Windows 10 build 17758 is now available in the Fast ring.

We're nearing the end of the development cycle, which means that there aren't any new features. One thing that was noted in the blog post is a new feature for Storage Sense, which will allow the feature to automatically free up disc space by making unused local files available online-only. Oddly enough though, it also says that this feature has been available since build 17720.

As usual, there are a bunch of fixes, improvements, and a known issue. Here's what got fixed and improved:

  • 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.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in the back button in Settings and other apps becoming white text on a white background if you hovered over it.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in Narrator not reading selected word choices when typing using an IME (for example, in Japanese).

  • We fixed an issue resulting in certain apps crashing when you tried to save a file from the app.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in explorer.exe crashing recently when clicking on the “Import photos and videos” option from an autoplay notification.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in nearby sharing not working for local accounts where the account name contained certain Chinese, Japanese, or Korean characters.

Here is the known issue:

  • 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.

Windows 10 Redstone 5 is now known as the October 2018 Update, which means that it will be available to the general public next month. The RTM build is expected to arrive this month for Insiders, although according to the blog post, this isn't it.
