    evaluation copy expiration date = insider preview = NOT permanently activated.

    What does the Activation window under Updates and Security settings show? If it shows an expiration date, that is the date that your Windows will stop working. If it shows a digital license with no expiration date, then you are permanently activated. This is an example of a permanently activated build 14393.726:

    Here's an example of how it looks like if on a computer with valid activation but on insider preview build. As you can see, it's activated but it's an evaluation copy and the licence expires this summer.

    Ahhh - the expiration date shows on winver, not on the activation screen . Thanks for that! @ajayhirur, run winver.

    The activation screen under Updates and Security will tell you if your computer has a digital license to run that version of Windows 10 (Home or Pro). The winver screen will tell you if the build of Windows 10 you have installed will expire or not.

    From a command prompt (admin) you can also run:

    slmgr /xpr

    That will tell you if your COMPUTER has a permanent license for Windows 10 or not.


    slmgr /dlv

    That will tell you if the Windows that you have currently installed is activated or not and if it has an expiration date.

    Exactly! Good catch!

    But only thing that really matters is the Activation tab in Settings. If it says Windows is activated, then it will be activated for ALL Windows 10 versions. Only difference is that Insider Builds will expire no matter what, as it is always an evaluation version.

    It's my understanding that Build 14393.726 is a Release Preview version, somewhere between the current RTM/Released to Market Version 1607 Build 14393.693 and IP/Insider Preview Version 1607 Build 15019.1000.

    It should be possible to jump between builds if you have the setup files/ISO. It is however not guaranteed that you can "downgrade" successfully from every insider build.

    A better way would be to stick to the official release, and if your computer supports virtualization, then use Hyper-V or VMWare Player/Workstation to test out new features and possible bugs for the IP builds within the virtual machine.
