Microsoft releases Windows 10 build 17128, and the Insider Preview watermark is gone

Microsoft today released Windows 10 Insider Preview build 17128, replacing build 17127 in the Fast ring, which was released earlier this week.

The most notable thing in build 17128 is that it removes the Insider Preview watermark and the expiration date. This of course confirms what we already knew, which is that the Redstone 4 update is almost ready to go. Microsoft may sign off on an RTM build as early as today, or it will happen early next week.

But despite it being almost ready to go, there are some new features through an app in build 17128:

Introducing Cortana Show Me

Ever wanted to change a setting, but didn’t know how? Enter Cortana Show Me, your guide to Windows 10 settings, which is now available for download in the Microsoft Store through this link. In our preview app, Cortana will show you how to change settings step-by-step. In this release, you can launch guides directly from the app homepage, but check back soon for voice entry points. For Insiders, the app is available in English (US and UK) and in German. We’ve created guides for 15 settings so far but stay tuned for further improvements and additional offerings. While we know this experience isn’t specifically designed for Insiders, it’s for all the friends and family we have who need a pointer – please share it with them.

If you click the link in Store and can’t download the app, wait a few hours and give it another try. It’s still rolling out!

Note: If you’re using keyboard navigation with your device, you will need to use Alt + T ab to move between Settings and Cortana Show Me.

Here’s the full list of guides:

  • Update Windows

  • Check if an app is installed

  • Uninstall an app

  • Change your desktop background

  • Use Airplane Mode

  • Change your display brightness

  • Add nearby printers or scanners

  • Change your default programs

  • Change your screen resolution

  • Turn off Windows Defender Security Center

  • Run a security scan

  • Change Wi-Fi settings

  • Change your power settings

  • Discover Bluetooth devices

  • Check your version of Windows

Microsoft did not list any fixes, improvements, or known issues for this build.

You can install this build by heading over to Settings -> Update & security -> Windows Update -> Check for update. Of course, if you don't know how to do that, you can always use Cortana Show Me.
