Skip ahead to the next Windows release

Windows Update

It was announced a couple of days ago at the Feedback Hub, but it wasn’t really all that visible. Windows Insiders are now moving into Redstone 4, the successor of the Fall Creators Update.

We are close to getting Redstone 3 aka Fall Creators Update of Windows 10 so this flight (the stream of updates released to Windows Insiders like myself) is currently stabilizing.

If you go to the Settings in Windows 10 you see under Update & Security on the Windows Insider Program tab a new option under What kind of content would you like to receive:

“Skip ahead to the next Windows release”

And the comment that goes with it: “Skip stabilizing our upcoming release and move straight on to our next Windows release”.

There is no option to skip between Slow, Fast or other level:

“Only one level is available for your selected branch”

Switching these options will immediately give you:

Windows Update 1

If you see 16251.0 you are still on release Redstone 3 (Fall Creators Update) but if you are getting 16251.1000 you are on the next path, Redstone 4 … Let’s move on!
