The first Redstone 5 build of Windows 10 hits the slow ring


Windows Insiders on the slow ring now have first chance to try the Redstone 5 builds of Windows 10. The Build released is 17692.1004 and will enable Insiders using the slow to try Cloud Clipboard, a new screen capture app and dark mode. In addition to the changes in build 17692 Microsoft have fixed a couple of issues since its original release:

We fixed the issue where the login screen would crash in a loop when the active sign-in method is set to Picture Password.

We fixed the issue where DRM video playback in Microsoft Edge from websites such as Netflix was broken.

We fixed the issue where Keyboard Settings found under Ease of Access were missing text as well as visible values in the two combo boxes.

We have improved reliability and performance for launching Start.

Here is my hands on video with build 17692:
