Releasing Windows 10 Build 19043.1149 (21H1) to Release Preview Channel Hello Windows Insiders, today we’re releasing 21H1 Build 19043.1149 (KB5004296) to the Release Preview Channel for those Insiders who are on 21H1. NOTE: Windows Insiders in the Beta Channel on 21H1 will not receive this update. We will be flighting Windows 11 Insider Preview builds to these Insiders soon! This update includes the following change in addition to all the improvements listed as part of Build 19043.1147: We added a new policy that creates generic strings and removes branding-specific terms, such as “Windows” or “PC”, for IoT Enterprise editions. For example, we changed “computer” to “device”. Instead of “Getting Windows ready,” we changed that to “Getting things ready” and so on. These generic strings are displayed on a user’s screen when an update is in progress. Thanks, The Windows Insider [ more… ]
