Windows 10 Build 17128 Released in the Fast ring with no desktop watermark

Microsoft today released Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17128 (RS4, "Spring Creators Update") to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring. This is the first build without the desktop watermark. This build replaces the previous build 17127, which was released just a few days ago. This build comes with a new feature 'Cortana Show Me'.


The most notable change in Windows 10 Build 17128 is removal of the Insider Preview watermark and the expiration date. This does not mean this is the final build of Spring Creators Update.

Windows 10 Build 17128 features the following changes.

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

There are no known issues in this build.

If you are a Windows Insider in the Fast ring, you'll get this build automatically via the Windows Update service. Check out Settings - Update & security - Windows Update.

  1. Hi Sergey,
    Any chance to take a look on the new Windows Explorer? That one which in 17627 has a black title bar and can open more tabs but the full menu cannot be “pinned” as before?
    Thanks in advance,

    1. That’s call Sets and it will be pushed back to RS5. You need to be an Insider in the Skip Ahead branch to test this feature. Luckily, I’m one of them.

  2. Hi! Nice, once downloaded (insider but not on fast ring ^^) and clean install, new UI is great (nice new mouse effects), system is fast, no issue… Windows as it should have been on 2015.
    We still need tabbed explorer. Custom iso ready!

    regards from France
