Check your Windows Insider Program settings to move off Skip Ahead

With the Windows 10 May 2019 Update being shared to the Release Preview ring soon (see this blog post for details), we’re planning to move Windows Insiders in the Fast ring forward to 20H1. We will also be merging the small group of Insiders who opted into Skip Ahead back into the Fast ring. We are looking to make this change in the coming weeks.

Now is the time for you to verify your desired Windows Insider Program settings by going to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Insider Program to make sure you’re on the ring you’d like to be on before this change occurs. If you’re a Windows Insider who wants to stay on the May 2019 Update, you’ll want to switch to the Slow ring now or the Release Preview ring once it receives the May 2019 Update.

IMPORTANT NOTE: 20H1 builds are from our development branch (RS_PRERELEASE), and as is normal with builds early in the development cycle, these builds may contain bugs that might be painful for some. If you are in the Fast ring and your PC gets updated to 20H1, you won’t be able to switch to the Slow or Release Preview rings without doing a clean-install on your PC and starting over.

We will begin releasing 19H2 bits to Insiders later this spring and will talk more about what that will look like in the near future.
