Mi­crosoft ap­pears to be gear­ing up for the next big Win­dows 10 up­date, af­ter re­leas­ing Win­dows 10 In­sider Build 17083. Co­de­named “Red­stone 4,” the next re­lease is ex­pected in the spring.

Mi­crosoft has made sev­eral tweaks to the op­er­at­ing sys­tem with this build, in­clud­ing a re­vamp of font man­age­ment and how a user’s his­tory is treated within the Time­line fea­ture. Con­spic­u­ously ab­sent is the Sets fea­ture ( go. pc­world.com/sets), an in­trigu­ing tabbed UI that es­sen­tially re­places sep­a­rate win­dows with a browser-like in­ter­face. Mi­crosoft had warned pre­vi­ously that Sets would take months to de­ploy—a fi­nal re­lease is ex­pected at the end of 2018, or even later—so the re­moval of Sets was planned.
