Microsoft is closing in on the final version of Spring Creators Update and this latest build includes new security improvements.
Microsoft today released Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17120 to Insiders in the Fast ring. While the company is in the final stabilization phase of this rollout, the team is still adding new features. Last week’s Build 17115 introduced privacy setting improvements and today’s version brings updates to Windows Defender Application Guard (WDAG). Microsoft also announced that it’s rolling out the next version, dubbed Spring Creators Update, in April.
Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17120
Microsoft is improving the WDAG based on Insider feedback over this testing cycle. Performance improvements for WDAG make the start process faster and improve the experience with Microsoft Edge. You will be able to turn on a “Download to host” feature on Windows 10 Enterprise edition through Group Policy. The Windows Defender System Guard has also received performance updates. Known issues with Windows Mixed Reality have also been addressed with this build.
Here is the list of the other changes, improvements, and fixes to expect in this latest build:
- When a process in Task Manager is suspended, or has suspended child processes, you’ll now see an icon indicating as much in the Status column of the Processes tab.
- We fixed an issue resulting in the UAC dialog potentially not rendering correctly in the last few flights.
- We fixed an issue resulting in OneNote crashing when using touch to drag and drop elements in recent flights.
- We fixed an issue resulting in the touch keyboard crashing when focus was moved to certain password fields.
- We’ve improved the performance of Bluetooth mice when the system is under load.
- We fixed an issue resulting in the Amharic keyboard not working in Win32 apps.
