Shortly after showing up, the option to access early new builds of Windows 10 has disappeared from the list of choices available to the new members of the Windows Insider testing program.

Earlier this summer, Microsoft introduced the Skip Ahead option for the Fast ring members of the Windows Insider program. Unfortunately, it did not take long for the Redmond giant to pull out this option, thus denying Windows Insiders the chance to check out some Redstone 4 builds.

Skip Ahead allowed a group of Windows Insiders in the Fast ring to go even further than usual and to test releases that should arrive after the Fall Creators Update, a major Windows 10 update that is expected to be ready for the masses by the end of September.

Redstone 4 is the next major Windows 10 refresh and is supposed to arrive after the upcoming Fall Creators Update. If everything goes as planned, it should be ready for its public release in the summer of 2018.

The Windows Insiders who chose to enable Skip Ahead did not get any updates last week and, although some sources claim they would get some more early builds in the future, everything should be taken with a grain of salt until we hear reports of new Redstone 4 builds reaching them.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
