Windows 10 preview build 17128 hits the Fast ring alongside 'Cortana Show Me' app

Microsoft is ending the week with a new build for Windows Insiders on the Fast ring. In this release, build 17128, the biggest change is that the watermark in the lower-right corner of the desktop is gone. However, Microsoft is quick to point out that this isn't the final build ahead of the spring update's release. Rather, there's still more work to be done, and Insiders will see further builds before the spring update's release.

Outside of the watermark change, there are no major changes or improvements in the build itself. Microsoft has, however, taken the opportunity to release a new app on the Microsoft Store: Cortana Show Me.

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.

Cortana Show Me includes a list of guides ranging from how to update Windows to running security scans and more. The app is available rolling out now on the Microsoft Store, but it may not be immediately available to download for everyone.

If you're on the Windows Insider Fast ring, you should be able to grab build 17128 via Windows Update now.
