Windows 10 Insider Build 17672

Microsoft’s Dona Sarkar announced Windows Insiders that a new flight is out and added a new blog post as well to provide them with all the necessary information about Windows 10 build 17672.

Heads up #WindowsInsiders – after some technical difficulties from @brandonleblanc we are officially live with Build 17672 to the Fast ring!

What’s new in Windows 10 build 17672

Windows 10 Insider Build 17672

In the blog post, Dona Sarkar and Brandon LeBlanc make sure to details all improvements, fixes and known issues that are packed in this build.

One of the most important changes concerns Windows Defender. The Windows Security Center (WSC) service will require antivirus products in order to run as a protected process to register. The products that have not implemented yet this will not show up in the Windows Security UI, and Windows Defender Antivirus will stay enabled with these products side by side.

Changes, improvements, and fixes

  • The issue that caused PCs to look stuck at “Preparing to install…” between 80-100% in Windows Update when attempting to install a new build was eventually fixed.
  • The issue where right-clicking in Microsoft Edge to copy failed to work was also resolved.
  • Timeline was updated, and now you can cycle through available tabs.
  • The audio quality when recording clips using the game bar was improved as well.
  • The issue where the apps did not always fully maximize to the top of the screen was also fixed.
  • Microsoft introduced preview support for same-site cookies in Edge and Internet Explorer 11.

You can read the rest of the changes, improvements, and fixes in the official blog post.

Known issues

There are quite a lot of known issues in build 17672, and they involve Windows Mixed Reality first Run experience, Narrator reading extra text, Microsoft Edge hangs and more. There are also a few known issues for Sets & Office, and you can check out the complete detailed list on Microsoft’s official blog post.
