A couple of days ago, Microsoft had released their latest update of Windows 10 aka April 2018 Update for all users. Microsoft has today released a new Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17661 from Redstone 5 branch for Fast Ring users. Redstone 5 will be the next major update to Windows 10 and is scheduled to release in the second half of 2018.

This is the first Redstone 5 build which has been released to Fast Ring as the earlier RS5 builds were released on the Skip Ahead Ring which was specifically created by Microsoft for giving an early start to their development process of the next major update. This build has introduced some new features and under the hood changes that will lay the groundwork for upcoming features.

Microsoft has started converging their snipping tools on Windows 10 by creating the Windows Ink Workspace’s Screen Sketch as a standalone app which has some easy sharing and sketching features. Since it is now an app, it also means that users can multitask with it and can find it in taskbar or Alt-Tab as well.

Microsoft has enabled a keyboard shortcut for easy snapping, so by pressing WIN + Shift + S, a new snip toolbar will pop up. After selecting the snipping area user will get a notification which can be opened in the Screen sketch app. Surface Pen or any other button can be now set up for bringing the new snipping experience. The other changes are:

• A new “Screen snip” button is also added to the action center for easier reach.

• Those insiders who opted to skip ahead branch and received ‘Sets’ enabled will continue to get it as now skip ahead and fast ring branches are merged again.

• Microsoft has also introduced the acrylic blur in Task View.

Along with the above-mentioned features, there are improvements in Windows Security and Focus assist when gaming. You can receive this build by opting into Fast Ring of Windows 10 by visiting Settings > Windows Update > Windows Insider Program in the settings app.
