First Windows 10 Redstone 4 Build Is Here

A milestone! Microsoft has released the first Windows 10 Redstone 4 build to Insiders that chose to Skip Ahead when the option was available. Build 16353 is the release you are looking for.

The software titan announced this ability for Insiders to Skip Ahead to the next development branch of Windows 10, but this ring was full within a week and half.

Nevertheless, this new version has been made available for these users. And as is usually the case following a feature update, this new build does not contain any new features, just some fixes and improvements that lay the ground work for the next major update for the OS.

  • When the Action Center is black (the default option) the “clear all”, “expand”/”collapse”, and “see more” link text will now all use your accent color – making them pop more and improving discoverability.
  • We’ve updated the Action Center to now support a two finger touch gesture to dismiss all notifications. Place two fingers vertically within the Action Center near the edge opposite to the side of your screen. Then slide these fingers towards the side of the screen. You will notice all notification groups following your fingers and then dismissing as you slide your fingers off the side of the screen.
  • We fixed an issue in XAML resulting in text animations appearing slightly blurry in the last flight until the animation had stopped (for example, when loading the main page of Settings).
  • We fixed an issue resulting in the taskbar being unexpectedly thick if you booted up the PC while plugged in to an external monitor with a different DPI.
  • We fixed an issue that caused minimized per-monitor DPI aware windows to miss DPI changes and end up with a mix of DPI scaling upon restoring.
  • We fixed an issue from recent flights where when Slideshow was enabled resuming from sleep a second time might place the Lock screen in a state where it couldn’t be dismissed without pressing Ctrl + Alt + Del.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in an unexpected change in mouse sensitivity in the last flight for PCs using non-default display scaling.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in Asphalt 8 not accepting input in recent flights.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in progress wheels on certain websites in Microsoft Edge unexpectedly moving out of place during their rotation.
  • We fixed an issue where the Windows Hello strings would appear on top of the page when performing a pin reset from the login screen.

In case you’re wondering, you will eventually get these RS4 builds eventually, most certainly after the release of the Fall Creators Update. The door has just opened!
