    How can I best tell what's in W10 builds before updating?


    I know that Microsoft pushes out new builds of W10 when required.
    However, I would like to know what's in these builds before I let W10 update the current OS.

    If I defer the updates using W10 Pro, is there a easy way to do this?
    Don't want the new builds affecting any of my applications.

    You can check out the MS update catalog report. Then input the KB you want to search for.

    There are also sites like Windows Central and plenty of YouTube videos which go through what's new.

    You've actually done the right thing already , you've Joined Tenforums :)

    If you regularly check our News forum you should see every Microsoft announcement regarding New Features and potential New Features and even the occasional depreciation of older features. This forum also contains News from other sources that are Windows 10 related. We also report the Pre-release information and any issues with, Windows 10 monthly Updates

    There is also a forum here relating to the Insider Program which is active discussing the latest Features, the Issues and general rumours on the future builds.

    Insiders program is documented in the Insiders Forum and if you want to see what is happening, and have the time, Joining this program will let you actually use the Next upgrade before it's released, (you can do this on a spare system or by use of a Virtual Machine, (we have a Virtualization Forum to assist with setting this up too )
