How to turn Windows 10 Insider Preview into Windows 10 RTM
It has been three weeks since Microsoft has announced the build 10130 for Windows 10 and most of the active Windows Insiders are expecting the new build today but unfortunately it is not coming. In the blog post at Blogging Windows website, Gabe Aul has offered some information on the important changes to the Windows 10 Insider Program related to the final builds before Windows 10 is made available to the public on July 29. In order to install Windows 10 RTM on your computer on July 29, you need to follow the below steps.
- You need to be registered for Windows Insider Program.
- Install the build 10130 of the Windows 10 Insider Preview.
- Set up the Windows build 10130 on your PC using your Microsoft account. The next build will be released to the Windows Insiders will ask you to connect to your Microsoft Account if not in order to validate that system for downloading the future builds. No Microsoft Account, no Fast or Slow Ring build after the next build is released. If you are an Windows Insider and forget to connect your Microsoft Account there will be reminders beginning in the next Windows Insider Preview release which could come at any time.
After going through the above steps you will have any other pre-release builds delivered to your PC and then the final Windows 10 version will come for your Insider preview on July 29. Throughout the upgrade process it will be properly activated for of the live of that device. This build will be delivered through Windows update like others in the Insider program.
Connecting to the Microsoft Account to Windows 10 install is the change only for the Windows Insiders. After the final build is released on July 29 no Microsoft account is required to update to the Windows 10 from Windows 7 or 8.1. These changes are implemented to extort out some of infrastructure which will be used to continue the Windows Insider program after release of Windows 10 on July 29.
If you still remain in the Windows Insider program then you will no longer be installed by default so in the next build you need to follow the below steps to get that on your PC.
- Navigate to Settings, System, Apps and features.
- Click on Manage optional feature then add a feature.
- Select the Insider hub entry and click on Install button.
This has to be repeated for any subsequent release of Windows 10 before July 29. However, if you would like to continue with the Insider Preview, then those builds will have the app installed once again.
