    Question.......??


    I need a little help if someone can explain it to me. I have been away from the Windows Insider Program for a few months due to health reasons and I recently re-activated my Insider Account and switched to 20H1. What I am wanting to know is since I have 20H1 (Fast Ring) if I switch back to (Release Preview) will the build number still show on my desktop? I can't remember how I did it last time. Thanks in advance for the help!!

    You cannot switch back to Release Preview once the Slow or Fast Ring build has passed beyond Release version.

    Next time you can switch to RP is when 2004 is released (shortly).

    As to this question, the watermark shows in the IP version [in the lower right corner] but not on the RTM version. It did on the RTM version for awhile then it went away, even the Registry hack was blocked or made ineffective on the RTM version. On the IP version it went away for awhile just a few versions ago but did come back. I like it since I'm running 2 IPs and 3 RTMs.

    Berton..... not sure what reg hack you were using, but this still works fine. It's what Winaero Tweaker does. Winver shows 18363, watermark 18362. Guess that's because it really is 18362 with the 1909 icing on it.

    Anyway, see if this works on your RTMs.
