Windows 10 Resources : Download and get new Windows 10 builds

  • Download the Windows 10 Technical Preview  here. (If you are an IT pro, Windows 10 Technical Preview for Enterprise is here.) Just a reminder — this is pre-release software for evaluation purposes only and not for your primary production environments.
  • If you have already installed Tech Preview, the latest builds will come to you automatically via Windows Update if you have your Windows environment configured as such. For most of you this means in the middle of the night. As long as your PC is plugged in — and either on or sleeping — the builds will be downloaded and installed for you. Note that Windows Update will not automatically download new builds over metered networks.
  • You can choose how often you'll get new builds —"Fast" or "Slow." With more frequent updates, you'll see the latest features sooner, but you're more likely to run into bugs. By default, all Insiders will be opted into the "Slow" track.

    What about Windows 10 RT?  When can we see that?

  2. Unfortunately, RT is not currently part of the preview and so far, no dates or announcements have been made.
