    Stop/Start getting Insider Previews after RTM


    This will, most likely, be the default procedure for opting out of 'Insider Preview Builds' on your copy Windows 10 Upgrade, and, not necessarily opting you out of the Insider Program per se, but this, of course, is not verified.

    Probably, but this is only what the leaked 10176 build has. It's possibly a placeholder, as MS has one important issue to think about - what if someone wants to leave the Insider Program but stay on their current prerelease build? I assumed that they could stay on whatever build they end the Program on...

    Also it'll have to verify whether a system has a genuine license as well.

    If you stay on a preview build and don't then upgrade to the consumer release Activation will eventually just time out. Your not genuine forever until you install or upgrade to a non preview build. You'll still be running a pre-release key. That's my understanding. Each new pre-release build gets a new end of life expiry date that lets you keep going.
