Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18890 Arrives

Here Comes the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

Microsoft has released a new Windows 10 20H1 build to Insiders on the Fast ring, but there are no new features.

“Hello Windows Insiders, today we are releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18890 (20H1) to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring,” Dona Sarkar writes in the announcement post. “Last month, we moved the Fast ring forward to 20H1 and merged the small group of Insiders who opted-in to Skip Ahead back into the Fast ring, which means Insiders in the Fast ring and those who opted-in to Skip Ahead are receiving the same builds for now.”

There are no new features in this build. Microsoft did fix a number of issues, and it notes that it will not roll out the Friendly Dates feature it considered for 19H1. Nothing notable, in other words.

    Just sounds to me like MS are pressing ahead with their bi-annual 'feature' updates then, and ignoring the general feedback and unsustainable dev cycle they're pushing. All I can see on the horizon then are further borked updates, and an extremely large number of Win7 holdouts who'd rather stay on an unsupported OS than move to the train wreck Win10 is.

      I just installed Win 10 on a new mobo and cpu and it renewed my dislike for Win 10. While the install went well, other than having to look at Cortana trying to be cool, the after install work of changing settings, isolating and limiting app practices, eliminating mobile app sharing, finding control panel missing from the menu even though control panel is needed for some settings, and the deletion of all the stupid tiles in the menu, took almost as long as the install.

      I’m in the process of getting Win 7 on it with dual boot, which means I’ll probably spend more time in Win 7 than Win 10, at least until support ends. After that, who knows.

        Start10. It will transform the experience. Control Panel right where it needs to be, but with Settings right beside it if you want.

        Even the Jump Lists work the way they did in 7.

        It’s $5. Well worth it if you want the improvements of 10 without the “improvements” of 10. ?
