  1. Exit Insider Program - Restore Original Windows 10 Pro License


    I have been a mostly happy "Insider" for several year but lately and for the first time been getting threats that the OS license is due to expire. Windows Update offers no newer version to replace it. After many hours of trouble shooting, I am frustrated with the Insider program. I want to restore the PC to its original Windows 10 Pro license but can't find a way to do this without destroying personal files and settings. The original license is a digital one stored by Microsoft. Is there a clean, non-destructive way to exit the Insider Program? If not, the company's present disclosures are wholly inadequate.

    License is not going to expire, it's preview build which is going to expire 31.07.2020 if you don't update to latest preview build 20170 where expire date is changed to 31.01.2021.

    My Windows 10 Insider preview build is expiring soon

    If you want completely quit from using insider previews you have to backup all your files you want to keep and make clean install of released version.

  4. Exit Insider Program - Restore Original Windows 10 Pro License

    Get a Windows 10 licence for free if you register on Windows Insider

    from Gabe Aul today : http://blogs.windows.com/bloggingwi...changes-to-windows-10-insider-preview-builds/

    well from the sounds of it, anyone who UPGRADED to windows 10 Preview wont have to do anything as it already has your Serial win 7/8.1 key logged.

    The crux of it is this:

    • Do you want to continue as a Windows Insider and keep getting preview builds after 7/29?
    • Or do you want to upgrade your Genuine Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 system that has been getting Windows 10 Insider Preview builds to the 7/29 release and stop being an Insider?
    “I want to continue as a Windows Insider!” If you want to continue as a Windows Insider past 7/29 there is nothing you need to do. You’re already opted in and receiving builds in the Fast or Slow ring depending upon your selection. This is prerelease software and is activated with a prerelease key. Each individual build will expire after a time, but you’ll continue to receive new builds so by the time an older prerelease build expires you’ll have received a new one. Since we’re continuing the Windows Insider Program you’ll be able to continue receiving builds and those builds will continue to be activated under the terms of the Windows Insider Program. We provide ISOs for these builds for recovery from any significant problems, but they are still pre-release software. As part of the program we’ll upgrade Insiders to what is for all intents and purposes the same build as what other customers will get on 7/29, but that will be just another build for Insiders, and those who stay in the program will simply get the next build after as well.

    “I want to opt out of the Windows Insider Program on 7/29.” If you decide to opt-out of the program and upgrade to the 7/29 build you will be subject to exactly the same terms and conditions that govern the offer* that was extended to all Genuine Windows 7 and 8.1 customers. This is not a path to attain a license for Windows XP or Windows Vista systems. If your system upgraded from a Genuine Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 license it will remain activated, but if not, you will be required to roll back to your previous OS version or acquire a new Windows 10 license. If you do not roll back or acquire a new license the build will eventually expire.

    It is our hope that the vast majority of Windows Insiders who have been with us since we announced the program last year will continue forward, and it was in that light that we authored the blog post about upcoming changes to the program. I regret that this caused confusion about who was or was not eligible for the Windows 10 upgrade offer, but hope that this helps to clarify.

    Thanks,
    g
