Microsoft just rolled out a new Windows 10 build for Insiders who opted to Skip Ahead just to keep them busy over the weekend. Windows 10 build 17650 is not a feature-rich release, as it introduces only two new features. The list of fixes and improvements is not that long either but includes a very useful fix for the annoying Settings app crashes that many Insiders complained about.
Build 17650 brings a Fluent Design refresh to the Windows Defender Security Center. Microsoft also adjusted the spacing and padding around the app. Windows 10 will now dynamically adjust the size the categories on the main page.
The second new feature that this build release brings focuses again on Windows Defender. Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) processes are now supported by the Windows Defender Firewall.
