Windows 10 build 18841 (20H1) releases with improvements

Microsoft delivers the second preview for Windows 10 version 2003 (20H1) coming in 2020, and here's everything you need to know.

As part of the first semi-annual update coming in 2020, Microsoft is now rolling out Windows 10 build 18841 for devices enrolled in the Fast ring with the Skip Ahead option. This is the second preview releasing to testers for the 20H1 development coming in spring 2020.

According to the company, build 18841 doesn’t introduces new features, only a set of fixes already available in the latest 19H1 builds.

While participants of the program with devices in the Skip Ahead lane are getting build 18841 today, Microsoft explains some features coming next year need a longer lead time. Once the April 2019 Update becomes available, testers will once again receive previews for the 19H2 development. 

Microsoft is listing the complete set of improvements, fixes, and known issues for Windows 10 Insider Preview build 18841 at the Windows Blog.

Download Windows 10 build 18841

Although there are no ISO files for Windows 10 build 18841, the update is available immediately through the Fast ring with the Skip Ahead option enabled. This preview build will download and install automatically on your device, but you can always force the update from Settings > Update & security > Windows Update, and clicking the Check for updates button.

Warning: Although the data loss-related issue has been fixed, it’s not recommended to install pre-releases of Windows 10 on your primary machine. If you’re planning to test this build, make sure to create a backup of your files before proceeding.
