    • Windows Insider Program members and Every New Upgrade!   11/11/2015

      The news is out for those who signed up to receive Insider Preview builds being an option found in the Windows 10 Start menu>Settings>UPDATE & SECURITY>Advanced options area. Microsoft Releases Windows 10 Threshold 2 to Slow Ring Users, ISOs to Follow Soon is the Softpedia report seen at http://news.softpedia.com/news/microsoft-releases-windows-10-threshold-2-to-slow-ring-users-isos-to-follow-soon-495944.shtml You will notice the "lack of" the usual evaluation build number type watermark as this is the Threshold 2 build intended for general release very soon for those just now either receiving notice that their reserved copy of 10 is ready to go on or when going  to use the Media Creation tool MS has provided where you can upgrade on the sport, see a USB Installation Key made up with a 4gb or larger flash drive depending on which selection as well as edition as the 32bit/64bit Combination will require a 6gb or larger flash drive and be too larger over 5.5gb actually in size to burn to dvd-r type optical media. But you can also save the "Windows.iso" download to a folder of choice on your local drive when skipping past the two media creation options to select the folder. UPDATE: As of today the WIndows Blog report was seen announcing that the first major update would now be included in the Free Upgrade Offer for Windows 10. The Windows Blog page can be seen at  First Major Update for Windows 10 Available Today To add further here the Media Creation tool first seen for upgrading to 10, creating the media either being the USB Installation Key using a large enough flash drive, burning the download to a blank dvd-r disk, or even saving the "Windows.iso" file to a folder on the drive where you can simply right click on the download to see it mounted to perform the upgrade install, or saving it to see put to use later for a clean install was first seen with the 32bit and 64bit links, Presently you see only one at this time and no longer see the first options as those have changed as well from: Home, Home N, Pro, Pro N, Single language version(English-US-32bit Home edition only) The "N" represents the less featured more or less developer form of 10 you can only upgrade to by having the N seen on the previous version of Windows as well as such 7 Home Premium N or 7 Pro N where the upgrade path will be correct. Presently you now see: Windows 10, WIndows 10 N, Single language version  the Single language version still being the limited 32bit Home edition there. The updated tool include; the following rather then picking and choosing Home or Pro 32bit or 64bit Dual 32/64 for Home only or Pro only you now see both editions in both flavors when going to perform a clean install as the updated 4 in 1 media. When going to upgrade over the 10240 general RTM release seen in July 29th to the Threshold 2 build being equal to the Windows Insider Preview 10586.3 version 1511 build the 10 installer will automatically upgrade  the Home or Pro installation automatically to the Home or Pro TH2 in the same 32bit or 64bit form. So no worry about seeing the 32bit TH2 replace the 64bit install you have on or would have on as far as any previous version's installation if you are just now contemplating the upgrade. Another found on the Get Windows 10 pages at the Windows site would the "GetWindows10-sds_________.exe" tool for the automatic upgrade. That will immediately download and install the present build now see as an upgrade type install not having any other options. Presently following the November 11, 2015 Threshold 2 version 1511 build 10586 update the latest Windows Insider Preview build seen at the moment is the 11092 build has been out now for a year(in time for the New Year that is!) and two weeks time. Well the last build just made available at the end of last week is the 14291 Insider Preview with a particular change. The Edge browser now has some new extensions. Since the browser is still relatively brand new in that sense you can expect to be hearing about more changes in the next few months.
