It seems that you won’t need to keep reinstalling RSAT each and every time you update Windows. This issue has been fixed in the latest Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17682. On Microsoft’s official blog, Dona Sarkar and Brandon LeBlanc listed all the new features and improvements that this build release brings.

RSAT is now available

Starting with this build, users will no longer have to manually download RSAT every time they upgrade. All you’ll have to do is head over to the Manage optional features in Settings and click on Add a feature. After that, you will see all of the RSAT components that are listed, and you can pick the ones you want, and the next time you upgrade, Windows will automatically make sure that all those components persist the upgrade.

Sets improvements

When users click the plus button in a Sets window, they will see apps included in the frequent destinations list. All apps are also integrated into the page, and you can browse them instead of using the search box.

Enhanced wireless projection experience

Microsoft listened to the feedback coming from users, and the company learned that it’s hard when users are wirelessly projecting a session. Now, this build brings a control banner which keeps users informed on the state of their connection, allowing them to disconnect and reconnect. All connections will start off in productivity mode.

Microsoft Edge improvements for web developers

Microsoft Edge now comes with unprefixed support for the new Web Authentication API. This provides an open, scalable and interoperable solution that will facilitate authentication and replace passwords with stronger hardware-bound credentials.

There are more general changes, improvements and fixes for the PC along with known issues and Sets and Office related issues and you can check out the complete list and details on these by reading the blog post on Microsoft’s blog. The company also announced the dates for the next Bug Bash: June 22 – July 1.
