Patch Tuesday: Here's what's new for Windows 7 and 8.1

Patch Tuesday: Here's what's new for Windows 7 and 8.1

Microsoft released Build 17713 to the Fast Ring Windows Insider channel today.

Now here we are with 3rd party ISO images of Redstone 5 Build 17713. Current versions of Notepad don't support zooming at all and this changes in the next feature update for Windows 10.

The stylus-based tool is now available for download by Windows 10 and is soon coming to iOS users as well, Microsoft said Thursday.

Build 17713 also introduces Edge browser improvements including per-site media autoplay controls, a new dictionary function for word definitions, and a better PDF Reader experience thanks to more toolbar options and improved rendering options. In contrast, with an express update, the content delivery network pushes down both missing and new quality update elements, regardless of the computing environment's monthly Windows 10 patch status. The option to join Skip Ahead will disappear from the drop-down under Settings Update & Security Windows Insider Program.

Expect the full and final Windows 10 Redstone 5 version, known as 1809, to be released to everyone around October.

Updates Internet Explorer's Inspect Element feature to conform to the policy that disables the launch of Developer Tools.

Addresses an issue in which DNS requests disregard proxy configurations in Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge.

For users who swear by other text editors, there really are no convincing arguments as to why you would want to switch back to Notepad. Otherwise, each cumulative update should now be available to download via Windows Update. Standalone users can now install and configure their Windows Defender Application Guard settings in Windows Security without needing to change Registry key settings.

Provides protections for an additional vulnerability involving side-channel speculative execution known as Lazy Floating Point (FP) State Restore (CVE-2018-3665) for 64-Bit (x64) versions of Windows. Use this guidance document to enable mitigations for Speculative Store Bypass (CVE-2018-3639) in addition to the mitigations that have already been released for Spectre Variant 2 (CVE-2017-5715) and Meltdown (CVE-2017-5754). (See AMD Architecture Guidelines for Indirect Branch Control and AMD Security Updates for more details).
