Windows 10 Build 17107 is now available on Fast Ring with improvements”

As the next version of Windows 10 "Redstone 4" is in its final stage of development, today's preview update comes with no new features or major changes. Right now, your device will go to sleep when it's inactive while Windows Update is downloading a new update, which could slow down the installation process in some cases.

"In RS4, now when Windows Update scans, downloads, and installs on a PC with AC power - it will prevent the PC from going to sleep when it is not in active use, for up to 2 hours when receiving an update in order to give Windows Update more opportunity to succeed", the company said. The first build is available to Skip Ahead Windows 10 testers, before Microsoft adds more features.

Several other general changes and fixes have also been deployed in the new build, resolving issues with the Settings menu (crashes in various scenarios), Windows Defender (button overlaps, offline scan), and other random hang and crash problems. It asks users to "Please release the power button". With Microsoft opening this tool set to developers, we'll expect more apps which make use of the new multi Window functionality in the Store.

A few nagging problems linger still, with Microsoft disclosing some of the known issues that it plans to address in future builds. If not, it is necessary to create a bootable ISO on a USB drive, boot into recovery mode, and this will allow bypass.

Microsoft's sometimes-aggressive data collection policies received criticism, but if AdDuplex's Windows 10 Fall Creators Update adoption figures are accurate, the software giant might be doing something constructive with all the ones and zeroes gleaned from customer PCs.
