It has been about a month now since Windows Insiders last got a new Slow ring build, but that’s just changed. Indeed, Microsoft has just pushed out Windows 10 Build 17738 to the Slow ring and also is promising new ISOs for next week.

Build 17738 originally released to the Fast Ring just last week on August 14, so that makes for just 9-days between its movement between the two rings. Anyway, there were not many changes with this release. and it mainly just brings fixes for Office in Windows 10 S mode, downloading files in Edge, and more.

There have since been more than a couple of Fast Ring releases since the last Windows Insider Slow Ring build— including build 17723, build 17728, 17730, 17733, 17735, 17738, 17741, and 17744. That all adds up and shows that this is still a far cry from Microsoft’s promise of more frequent slow Ring builds, but it indeed will have to do for now.

Anyway, build 17738 falls right in the middle of everything, so feel free to download now or switch your PC to the Slow ring to try out this release. Also, keep in mind that Dona Sarkar is promising new ISOs soon, for those who like a fresh start.

Once you’re up and running, let us know in the comments below how this latest slow ring build is running for you.
