Latest Redstone 2 PC build improves the Edge browser

Windows 10 build 14905 is the second Redstone 2 build released by Microsoft, and it’s based on the feedback the company has received from Windows 10 users following the release of a series of cumulative updates.

Build 14905 for PC focuses mainly on fixing the issues reported by users, bringing only one minor new feature for Edge. Windows 10 PCs have received three fixes: the large blank space between the address bar and web content in Edge is now gone, the Narrator Scan mode now supports CTRL + ALT + HOME navigation, and the crashes in Sketchpad and Screen Sketch should be history now.

As far as the new Edge feature is concerned, from now on Insiders can use the CTRL + O keyboard shortcut to set focus to the address bar.

We have fixed an issue causing a large blank space to appear between the address bar and web content after the address bar moves back to the top when opening a new tab in Microsoft Edge.

Microsoft Edge now supports the CTRL + O keyboard shortcut for setting focus to the address bar.

Speaking of Edge, if this is your main browser, make sure you’ve installed the latest cumulative update for Windows, KB3177358, which patches no less than eight security issues in Microsoft Edge. The most severe of these vulnerabilities could actually allow remote code execution if you view a specially crafted webpage using Microsoft Edge.

If you’re curios to test out the improvements that build 14905 brings, go to Windows Update and download the latest build on your machine.
