The Insider Program for Windows options 4 completely different rings — Skip Ahead, Fast, Slow, and Release — that decide which construct of Windows 10 is out there to the machine.
Up till not too long ago, these meant the next:
- Skip Ahead — Not open all of the time, construct of the following function replace that Microsoft is engaged on and never the soon-to-be-released one.
- Fast Ring — Latest builds of the soon-to-be-released Feature Update.
- Slow Ring — Same as quick, however not practically as many builds and never latest.

[..] we’re planning to transfer Windows Insiders within the Fast ring ahead to 20H1. We may even be merging the small group of Insiders who opted-in to Skip Ahead again into the Fast ring. We are wanting to make this alteration within the coming weeks.
Microsoft has not revealed the way it plans to check the second function replace of 2019. With the Fast Ring on Windows 10 model 2003, it could fall to the Slow Ring to obtain the 1909 builds solely if the corporate doesn’t change issues round later this 12 months.
