Windows 10 Insider preview build 16296 ISO files now available

Windows 10 preview build 16296 just hit the Insider Slow ring last week, and now it's available to download as an ISO as well. Like previous ISO releases, you can use the 16296 ISO files to perform a clean install to start fresh on your machines.

Development on the Fall Creators Update is nearly wrapped up, and the changes present in build 16296 reflect that. Here's a look at the trio of fixes included in 16296.

  • We fixed an issue where Hyper-V couldn't create a VM on 3rd party network storage.
  • We fixed an issue where for the first few minutes after clean installing a non-English build many inbox app names might unexpectedly appear with English app names.
  • We fixed an issue where gaming apps using WebView with heavy use of HTML canvas might have unexpectedly had very low FPS in recent flights.

Microsoft recently flighted build 16299.15, which marks the RTM milestone for the Fall Creators Update. That build should be available in ISO form in the days after it is flighted to Slow ring Insiders. In the meantime, you can grab the 16296 ISO files from the Windows Insider website, along with instructions on how to create your own install media.
