Microsoft released a new preview for PCs with 16 bug fixes. This building is from the RS5 branch, which represents the Windows 10 update, which the company plans to release later this year (probably in October 2018). The company also launches buildings from the 19H1 branch, which, as the name suggests, appears in the first half of next year.
Windows 10 is being developed as a service, which means that it receives new features on a regular basis. Microsoft has released five key updates so far: November Update, Anniversary Update, Creators Update, Fall Creators Update, and April 2018 Update.
We do not know yet what the next update is called, but the back is the "Windows 10 October 2018 Update." Assuming this is true, Windows Insiders will probably see RS5 finishing in September, and the audience will get it a month later.
Given that Microsoft has stopped adding features and is now just focused on stability, this timeline probably looks. That said, the previous update came to the last day of the month after some delays.
This desktop build contains the following general fixes and improvements:

Today's update encountered the Windows 10 building number of the RS35 branch from 17735 (available to testers on August 10th) to build 17738.
This building has seven known issues:
- Your PC will bugcheck (GSOD) When you delete a local folder that is synchronized with OneDrive.
- When you upgrade to this building you will find that the taskbar (network, volume, etc.) no longer has an acrylic background.
- When using Ease of Access Make text larger setting, you may see problems with text clippings, or find that the text is not increasing in size everyw here.
- Narrator sometimes does not read in the Settings app when navigating using Tab and arrow keys. Try switching to Narrator Scan mode temporarily. And when you turn off scan mode again, Narrator will now read when navigating using Tab and arrow key. Alternatively, you can restart Narrator to work around this issue.
- When using Scan Mode Scan Mode in Microsoft Edge, the text is not selected correctly.
- After you set up a Windows Mixed Reality headset for the first time of this built with motion controls, the controls may need to be paired again before they appear in the headset.
- A problem where IMEs can not write East Asian characters in specific text fields using Microsoft Edge.
As always, do not install this on your production machine.
