Activate Hidden Features in Windows 11 and 10 Insider Builds

As you may already know, Windows 10 Insider Preview includes a set of "hidden" feature which are not accessible to regular users. Usually, the OS includes features that are not finished or can cause some unexpected behavior. Here are two tools we can use to unblock such features, both free and open source.

Windows 10 Mobile build 15025 is released for Fast Ring Insiders

Despite our previous reports, Microsoft has managed to release a new Windows 10 Mobile build this week. Build 15025 is now rolling out in the Fast ring and should be already available for all Windows Insider Program members enrolled in it. The company has managed to fix the previously mentioned blocking bug that was preventing people from downloading and installing new OS builds properly which could potentially have caused some damage to the software running on these mobile devices. The change log is almost identical to what was introduced with the desktop version of this build and there are still known issues present.

New Windows 10 Mobile builds for insiders are delayed due to blocking bug

Windows Insider program members haven't seen new Windows 10 Mobile builds for quite some time. Despite desktop builds for the Fast ring being released every week, Microsoft has some issues with getting newer Mobile builds to run good enough on Insider devices. Earlier this week, Windows Insider Program lead Dona Sarkar announced on her Twitter that Mobile builds are being delayed due to a blocking bug the team has hit during development.

Microsoft won’t release new builds for Windows Insiders until 2017

Since the holidays are around the corner, Microsoft has decided to not release any more builds for its Windows Insider program this year. The reason for that, according to the program's head Dona Sarkar, is that the company doesn't want to ship a build with a possible breaking bug and have Insider Preview members dealing with it during the holidays.

Windows 10 Mobile Build 14977 is out for Insiders in the Fast Ring

Microsoft has released another Windows 10 Creators Update build for Windows 10 Mobile Insiders. This time it's build 14977 and it's available for mobile devices on the Fast Ring. The desktop variant was postponed this time because of some "blocking bugs" as Microsoft employees referred to them. There's a pretty small amount of changes in this build, but still it's nice to get a new one since the last few times, Mobile builds were released with a huge delay compared to PC builds.
