How to download Windows 11 Insider Preview Build
You can now download the first Insider Preview version of Windows 11 if you are a member of the Windows Insider Program. It’s important to remember that beta versions, especially early ones, can be slow and sometimes break. If you do have a test device, don’t download the beta to your primary device. It is best to wait until the public beta arrives in July or, better, to download the general release in the latter part of the year. The first build does not contain all the new features that will be included in the general release.
