Windows Insiders Build 20246

Windows Insider Program

I Love being the first to see what’s next for Windows in the Windows Insider Program. For me It’s a way of Life to support Microsoft by giving feedback, suggestions and ideas for Windows 10 New innovations and improvements. I feel I’m building together with the Microsoft Product Team and Community to make a better product every week. It’s awesome too see that Microsoft is solving your feedback issue or your idea is coming in the next Windows Insider Build Release 🙂 I’m a Windows Insider MVP but also a Cloud and Datacenter Management MVP for the Community sharing New Microsoft Technologies.
