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.

Since the aim of the Windows Insider program is to identify and fix technical issues affecting the OS, here’s what this build brings new in terms of fixes:

  • The issue where File Explorer would always open with the ribbon minimized has been fixed.
  • Elements on the main page of the Windows Defender Security Center app should no longer change size on mouse hover.
  • Microsoft fixed the issue where the remove option for non-default languages was greyed out in Settings.
  • Microsoft addressed the bug where the Color Filters and High Contrast icons were switched in Settings.
  • Clicking links in Settings to launch other apps no longer results in Settings crashing.
  • Insiders will no longer experience Settings crashing when navigating to Apps > Default Apps > Set defaults by App.
