As part of Patch Tuesday, Microsoft generally releases builds
for its older versions of Windows 10. But as a surprise
Microsoft today released a new Windows 10 Insider Build 17738
for Fast Ring insiders along with builds for its older
versions.

Since Redstone 5 is now in the final leg of development and is
expected to be released to all Windows 10 users in couple of
months time, Microsoft has not introduced any new features in
the latest insider build but has made sure to push out fixes
and improvements.

Below is the full changelog of what’s fixed and broken in
Windows 10 build 17738.

    users not being able to download Office in the Store due to an

    4GB mark, this issue has now finally been fixed in the latest

    opening a blank pane in previous flights. This issue has now
    been fixed in the latest build.

    when users tried to increase text size. This issue has now been
    fixed in the latest flight.
  • Issue where using Find on page in Microsoft Edge didn’t
    highlight the current instance of the result has now been

  • The Ease of Access Make Text bigger setting brings text
    clipping issues which should be fixed in upcoming builds.
  • Narrator sometimes does not read in the Settings app when
    you navigate using Tab and arrow keys. As a workaround try
    switching to Narrator Scan mode temporarily.
  • Setting up a Windows Mixed Reality headset for the first
    time on this build with motion controllers, the controllers may
    need to be re-paired a second time before appearing in the
    headset.

There are lot of issues which have been fixed by the Redmond
Giant in the latest Windows 10 Build. However though the list
of known issues is small, we still recommend that you avoid
downloading the build on your primary desktop.
