What to expect in Windows 10 Redstone 5

As you know, Microsoft is continuously working on the next version of Windows 10 – code named “Redstone 5”. While there will be any show stopping major feature, there will be quite a few enhancements.

  • Skype as part of Windows 10 will get quite a few improvements which include new calling features, easier screen sharing, call snapshots, a new layout, and customizable themes.
  • For administrators Remote Server Administration Tools [RSAT] will be part of Windows [versions that are part of a domain of course]. So when Windows 10 gets updated, so does RSAT.
  • Since removing after Windows 10 RTM, Redstone 5 will allow you again to adjust the size of text in the user interface. Unsure why it was removed in the first place or why it took so long to come back.
  • A whack of Edge improvements [for those who actually use it!] including the ability to disable auto media playback in web pages [like other browsers can do], Fluent Design System elements, redesign of some settings menu, and Hub, top sites in the Edge jump list as well as the ability to customize the Edge toolbar.
  • The setup itself will have enhancements including your phone and setting up Windows Hello if available on the system.
  • To support LTE mobile broadband improvements, the network core stack has been updated.
  • More additions to the Fluent Design System.
    The main memory column in the Task Manager’s Processes tab will now not include memory used by suspended UWP processes.
  • SwiftKey functionality has been added to the virtual keyboard in eight languages.
    In security, antivirus products will need to run as a protected process to register. Windows Defender Antivirus will remain enabled if an anti-virus application isn’t registered.
  • Improvements to Game Bar and Game Mode.
  • You will be able to override regional settings for the calendar, dates, times, first day of the week and currency.

The next version is expected to be released in late September with consumers beginning to get the update notifications in mid-October – assuming there wasn’t any issues like in the last update. Code-named “Redstone 5”, it may also be known as “v1809”.
