Windows Insider Program Website Gets A Facelift

It was a long time coming! Microsoft has just updated the official website of the Windows Insider Program, redesigning it with a lot more information for interested users.

Dona Sarkar, the head of the program, had already hinted at this a couple of weeks back.

The major overhaul launched today, and although the look and feel has not changed all that much, more details are provided on how the builds are released, and what users can expect from the various rings of the preview program.

A noticeable feature here is the addition of preview build highlights, a page that gives Insiders a glimpse at what they can test drive in the latest releases.

Right now, it lists things like Story Remix, My People, and several other small and large features that Microsoft is preparing for the upcoming Windows 10 Fall Creators Update — pretty standard stuff, but pretty welcome, too.

Redmond has redesigned the website with focus on different kind of audiences, including consumers, small and medium businesses, as well as large enterprises.

While beginners should find the Windows Insider Program website easier to navigate, it is also easier to do things now over there.

For example, a conveniently placed button on the website makes it easy to leave the program, while a recovery section has also been added for Insiders, where they can learn to roll back previous builds, with links to recovery images for Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10.

A neat effort overall, and well thought out, too.
