Microsoft Opens up Skip Ahead for Windows Insiders Once Again

Posted on January 30, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Windows, Windows 10 with 4 Comments

Microsoft is opening up the Windows Insider program’s Skip Ahead system to Insiders once again. This means if you want to get all the cutting edge features and Insider releases before everyone else, now is the time to enrol into Skip Ahead.

Microsoft is nearing the end of development for Windows 10 19H1, which is supposed to come out for the public sometime in April. The company has internally started work on the next version — 19H2 — and opening up Skip Ahead once again is part of that.

Once you enrol into Skip Ahead, you will continue to receive Windows 10 19H1 builds for the time being. Microsoft likely won’t start releasing 19H2 builds for a little while, so you’ll just receive 19H1 builds for now.

Skip Ahead only has a limited amount of space, so you will need to be quick if you want to get access to the early builds.

    Must be they need more testers for some reason . . .

    I wish they had information on how to create a free VM with an insiders version of Windows on it. Then I would be an insider again. But, don't have the time to research how to do it on my own.

      Can you try Oracle VM VirtualBox? I used it once on Win 10 to install Win XP to run an old program. It worked like a charm and I’ve got almost no experience with VMs.

    So what ever happened to Sets? Seems like that feature has disappeared from the face of the earth.
