Microsoft has just released the Windows 10 Insider build 17083 for PC, and this is another pretty big release. There are some cool new features this week, including improvements to Timeline, Windows Shell, and the Settings app. The Diagnostic Data Viewer tool that Microsoft announced earlier today is also included in this release.

You can check the full release notes on the Windows Insider blog, but we’ve summarized the most important items below:

Sets: After some testing with a limited pool of Insiders, Sets is now offline in build 17083. “Sets will return soon in a post-RS4 flight,” Dona Sarkar explained.

Fonts: You’ll find new ways to manage your fonts with the addition of a new Fonts page within Settings, with the ability to install or uninstall fonts from the Microsoft Store

Privacy Tools: The new Diagnostic Data Viewer is a new Windows 10 app that shows you all the personal data your PC is sending to Microsoft. To use the app, you’ll have first to enable it in Settings > Privacy > Diagnostics & feedback.

Timeline: After listening to user feedback, Microsoft has improved Timeline with new options for clearing all activities for an hour or day. Moreover, you can now sync all activities from your PC to the cloud for a seamless cross-device experience.

Windows Shell: The new “Quiet Hours” is now called “Focus Assist,” and it has now three different modes (off, alarms only, priority only). Windows Hello can also be configured right from the lock screen.

That’s it for what’s new in Windows 10 Insider build 17083. We’re pretty sad to see Sets disappear so soon, but we’re glad to have some cool new features to play with this week.
