Microsoft has continued to pick up the pace when it comes to the release of ISO files for the upcoming Windows 10 October 2018 update. Following the last set made available last week, Microsoft today has made available the ISO files for Insider build 17744.

Today's release comes less than a week after build 17744 first hit the Insider Slow ring. As per usual, separate files are available to download for the general preview release, Enterprise, and Home China. You can use each to create install media on a USB drive or DVD to perform a clean install of Insider build 17744.

Microsoft is continuing to wrap up development on the October 2018 Update, and we expect it to get an official sign-off later this month ahead of its expected October release. But even as development winds down on this release, Microsoft has already begun testing its next major update, currently codenamed Windows 10 19H1, with Skip Ahead Insiders.

If you'd like to give build 17744 a shot, you can download the new ISO files from Microsoft now.
