    Windows 10 Build 9879 - Last Build of this Year


    Hey All!

    Yes, I've been away and still not well but, have received a email from Gabe Aul @MS today
    and would like to share it with you. What made me post this is the fact that we are not getting
    any new builds till January. Just thought I'd let you know:

    Check out new and helpful info about the Windows Insider Program.

    Windows Insider Program | Before you install | How-to | Windows Feedback app | Forum

    Hello, Windows Insider
    I'm Gabe, and I lead the Data & Fundamentals Team here in the Operating Systems Group (OSG). My team is excited about helping to review and understand all of the feedback we get from you via the Windows Insider Program, and working with all of our feature teams to make changes based on what we hear. You can expect to hear from me going forward on the Insider Program.
    Download, and get new builds

    • If you haven't already installed Windows 10 Technical Preview, you can do it here. (If you are an IT pro, Windows 10 Technical Preview for Enterprise is here.) Just a reminder this is pre-release software , so check out Before you install to be sure it is right for you.

    • If you have already installed Tech Preview, the latest builds will come to you automatically via Windows Update. For most of you this means in the middle of the night. As long as your PC is plugged in and either on or sleeping the builds will be downloaded and installed for you. Note that Windows Update will not automatically download new builds over metered networks.

    • You can choose how often you'll get new builds "Fast" or "Slow." With more frequent updates, you'll see the latest features sooner, but you're more likely to run into bugs. By default, all Insiders will be opted into the "Slow" track.

    • Build 9879 is the last new build of the year for Windows Insiders. But we will be back in January with a lot of exciting new things to share with you.
    Keep the feedback coming!

    • As an Insider, you can provide feedback directly to our engineers by using the Windows Feedback app which is part of the Tech Preview download. Simply search for "Windows Feedback" from the search box.

    • When on Tech Preview, be sure to sign in with the Microsoft account which you used to sign up for the Insider Program (the address at which you are receiving this email).

    • If you have a question or are seeking support for Tech Preview, try the Windows Technical Preview forum. We have people reading the forum all the time and we're forwarding questions, conclusions, and discussions around the team. Don't forget to click the "me too" button when you see someone else's feedback that you agree with or are experiencing yourself.

    Stay in the loop

    You'll be hearing from me again when there is more to share thanks again for helping us make this the best Windows ever.

    Will see you some time soon.

    Flashorn.

    Damn, I was hoping for a new build after 9879 almost bricked my new SSD. I've still got 9860 on another PC so I can play around with that until the next build, and then I'll go on the slow ring.

    Yeah, I received the same email today. No big hurry, for I'll be busy with the house and the Holidays anyway.

    This build should be pretty stable by the end of the year.

    I just spent half a day setting up 9841 (very nice btw). I think I will skip a couple. Main reason for 9841 was to get rid of this search icon in the taskbar - it bothered me because it was useless. I'll watch what you guys have to report.

    Have you tried out the new Window Snapping combinations in b9841?

    Unfortunately it is broken in the two newer builds.

    Did you know that you can turn off both the "Show Task View button" and the "Show Search button" on the Task Bar in Build 9879?
