Windows 10 Insider Build 17035 Heads To The Fast Ring

You can now download a shiny new preview version of Redstone 4, as Microsoft has just unleashed Windows 10 build 17035 for Insiders enrolled in the Fast ring of the program.

As the company detailed, this version is available on both the Fast ring and Skip Ahead channels.

Right off the bat, Redmond has revealed that there is a bug in this build that causes issues with PCs with AMD processors. For this reason, the software titan has blocked computers running these CPUs from installing this version, and is working on a fix.

And now for the improvements.

There is a ton here!

Build 17035 Mute Tab

For starters, we finally get the handy ability of muting a tab in the Microsoft Edge web browser. This can be accomplished via the icon in the tab, and the feature is also available from the context menu that pops up when right clicking.

Build 17035 Save EPUB

You can also save a free EPUB ebook right from Edge, from now on.

Microsoft also added new context menu options for book, including View in Microsoft Store, Pin to Start, Refresh books, while renaming the Remove from here option to Remove from device. Also new is the Near Share feature that allows the wireless sharing of files and URLs to nearby PCs.
