Yet another preview of Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 17763) outs to Insiders with more fixes to stabilize the final version.

As part of the October 2018 Update, Microsoft is now rolling out Windows 10 build 17763 for devices enrolled in the Fast ring of the Windows Insider Program. This is the 36th test preview, and it’s a minor update that only includes a number of fixes.

Windows 10 build 17763, according to the company, fixes problems with Microsoft Edge, Bluetooth audio devices, battery usage, PowerShell, and it resolves issue resulting in display scaling factors not being applied correctly when viewing a full screen remote desktop window.
