Windows 10: Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14316 Insider
Downloading now...hope they've fixed the EVO Magician 9.4.5 but that won't allow the boot SSD to query the bus as long as Secure Boot is turned on! 14295 required me to turn off secure boot to install because of that...happened with 14279, but not with with 14291.
Do I have to sign up to be able to activate it or even use it? I would love to try this out! Could I install it on a Virtual Machine or better off with installing it on my actual computer. Any advice or help is appreciated!
This build screwed up my display, took 1440x900 away and gave me 1400x1050, just a little bit skewed of things that should be round but are slightly ovaled. Somewhat irritating since this computer and the other 3 connected through a KVM worked just fine with 1440x900.
So far, this build is the best yet--the scannow command has apparently been fixed in this build, my network printers--for the first time ever--remained installed after the upgrade, and even though the boot SSD Magician 4.9.5 drivers again failed to run their diagnostics with secure boot on, and Magician still thinks my SATA III bus is not working, the 14316 upgrade installed first time without a hitch from my SATA III AHCI EVO 850 boot drive, also a first--I've always had to turn secure boot off in order to get some builds--like 14295--to install!
Very nice build so far--really like the "dark mode"--just right! Everything is shaping up nicely! This one has to be the best build yet!
Wanted to add that they did another thing I asked for months ago but thought I'd never see in Win10--they activated the Defender program icon in the systray whenever the program is turned on--so it's in the systray now from boot up! Previously in Win10 we had to actually open Defender from Settings before the icon would appear in the systray. I've always liked it being there all the time when the program is running so that I'll know the program is running as it should and I won't have to open it just to make sure of that.

just off to get the latest AMD BETA gfx driver..
Good to know . I Lifted ( copied ) the Install ESD out of the WU download but I haven't restarted /installed or mounted an ISO from the ESD for an upgrade install yet but I'll do one or the other today for sure and or maybe decrypt the ESD to ISO .
I'm not a dark mode windows person but a lot of folks like it .
If you want to play safe, then install it in a virtual machine. Or you can make a dual boot. What you prefer is the best

About activation - try and see. I have this PC running on Insider version since last spring.
Up and running new build. Looks fine so far.
That is really useful!
Yes it is. Until now Edge started downloads automatically saving them in default Downloads folder. You had to then copy the download where you'd rather had it stored.
