Full build number: 19577.1000. rs_prerelease. 200228-1439.
We remind you that the “Early access” channel releases builds that may contain rather unpleasant errors. If you need more stability, we recommend switching to the Slow (Late access) or Release Preview channels.
Changes in the diagnostic data section in Parameters» As part of Microsoft’s initiative to increase transparency and control over data, some changes have been made to the Settings app and group policies, which will start appearing in Windows Insider builds this month.
