Windows 10 build 19044.2075 rolls out, Microsoft introduces new stuff – GinjFo

Microsoft is offering a new Preview version of Windows 10 to users of the Windows Insider program. It is deployed through the Release Preview channel.

It originates through the release of cumulative update KB5017380. Its installation allows Windows 10 to evolve to version 19044.2075. Microsoft offers several improvements, the most notable of which concerns older versions of TLS.

Now TSL versions 1.0 and 1.1 are disabled by default. This change affects browsers and various Microsoft applications. This is not a surprise since this new policy has been known for a while.

We also have new features around the taskbar and the “News and Interests” module. The firm explains

We’ve provided the ability to find the controls for News & Interests on the taskbar and change them using the Settings app.

To change your settings, go to Settings > Personalization > Taskbar > News & Interests.

Alternatively, right-click the taskbar and select Taskbar Settings. We have supported all taskbar orientations for News & Interests. A top, left, or right taskbar now has similar functionality and settings to the horizontal taskbar.

In parallel, WebAuthn redirection begins its deployment and improvements are made to Azure Active Directory authentication.

Microsoft specifies

We introduced the WebAuthn redirect. It allows you to authenticate to applications and websites without a password when using Remote Desktop.

Then you can use Windows Hello or security devices, such as Fast Identity Online 2.0 (FIDO2) keys. We’ve introduced a feature that lets you use Azure Active Directory (AD) authentication to connect to Windows using Remote Desktop. Then you can use Windows Hello or security devices, such as Fast Identity Online 2.0 (FIDO2) keys, for remote login. It also allows the use of Conditional Access policies.

At the moment all this new content is offered for testing purposes. We don’t have a timeline around when it will arrive for the general public. Note that the firm also fixes several bugs.
