How To Get Insider Builds

How to get the latest Insider Preview Build?

If you already have an Insider Preview Build installed:

  • Type "Windows Update" in the search bar, then check for updates.

If you’re not running a Preview Build on your PC with Windows 10 installed:

  • Make sure that you have administrator rights to your machine and that it has latest Windows updates.
  • Type “Windows Insider Program settings” in the search bar (lower left), then open to get Insider Preview Builds.

When you are installing, remember to choose your Insider level. (Select the “Fast Ring” for all the latest features or the “Slow Ring” if you prefer a more stable Preview Build with a few less new features.)

Preview Builds in the Slow Ring are not released as frequently as our builds in the Fast Ring. This gives us more time to test each release and fix bugs. And that means you can stay productive on your device while also trying out exciting Windows features.
