Tips & Tricks
Windows Insider program deals with two types of processes through which you can access the Windows 10 Preview Builds. These are the Slow Ring and the Fast ring. Now both the fast and alow rings have their share of proa and cons. While the slow ring brings the Preview Builds at a later time as compared to the Fast Ring, but the later is prone to crash and bugs. However you can choose between these two Rings. All you need to do is open Settings > Update & security > Advanced options, and go to Choose how preview builds are installed.
According to Microsoft, “And if your machine hasn’t been updated from one of our earlier builds (such as 9926), you can download the latest Slow build from the Insider download site. ” You can consult Wikipedia for more details.
