Windows 10 Insider Preview1

Installing Insider Preview builds is a great way to explore new Windows features, provide feedback and help shape future releases.

Like any pre-release software, you may encounter bugs and other issues along the way. For this reason, Insider Preview builds are made for people who know their way around a PC or device and don’t mind frequent updates with significant changes.

But don’t worry. You have a choice of Insider Preview versions. If you’re not comfortable with the early Fast Ring versions, you can always select the Slow Ring or Release Preview — which are released later, but are more stable. Find out more about rings.

Introducing Exploit Protection

You can now audit, configure, and manage Windows system and application exploit mitigation settings right from the Windows Defender Security Center.
