Microsoft talked about upcoming changes in the program Windows Insider

The official website of Windows appeared extensive post in which the company explained, what changes will occur in the program Windows Insider before the release of Windows 10.

This is required if you want to get next preview releases via Windows Update. You need to specify the details of the same account that you used to register the program Windows Insider. If the account is already connected, no additional actions from user are required.

The company notes that this change applies only to the program Windows Insider. Microsoft account will not be required to upgrade to Windows 7 or 8/8.1 to Windows 10. But after the upgrade it is still recommended to connect a Microsoft account, because without it you will not be able to use a significant part of the functionality of the OS.

Users of Windows 10 (Home or Pro) will receive the final version of Windows 10 along with all that is on 29 July. The final version will be distributed in the form of updates. After you install and activate the upgrade, you can reinstall a new OS from scratch.

Users Windows 10 Enterprise will need to install the Microsoft Licensing Service Center and activate the OS from there. The company warns that Windows 10 Insider Preview for Enterprise is not entitled to a free update and can be updated to the final version using Software Assurance agreement.

The Windows Insider program will continue even after the arrival of the final version of Windows 10 development team will start working on new features and changes that will be released for insiders. Users will have the option to leave the test program.

Also starting from the next build, the app Insider Hub will cease to be part of the system, but interested users can install it. However, in assemblies that will be released after July 29, this app will come back.

As for the Windows Feedback app, it will be included in the next Assembly, and in the final version of Windows 10.

Because already in the next build Project Spartan will be renamed to Microsoft Edge, the company warns that as a result of this change will remove the history, favorites, items reading list and other data stored in Project Spartan. To prevent loss of this information, important before upgrading to the next build to copy the contents of %localappdata%/Packages/Microsoft.Windows.Spartan_cw5n1h2txyewy/AC/Spartan/User/Default/Favorites to %userprofile%/Favorites. Then, after updating, go to settings Microsoft Edge and to import favourites from Internet Explorer.
