The final version of Windows 10 Spring Creators Update, set for release next month, is nearly complete. The Preview watermark has been removed.
Microsoft today released Windows 10 RS4 Preview build 17128 to Insiders in the Fast ring. This build signals that version 1803 –Spring Creators Update – is virtually done. The company no longer does RTM builds, but this one signals that it is now feature-complete and any new builds from now until the official version (expected next month) will be fixing any remaining bugs.

In today announcement, the company says, “We’re just now beginning the phase of checking in final code to prepare for the final release. The only difference between this build and Build 17127 from Tuesday is the removal of the watermark. However, we’ve got more fixes being checked in for the next flight.” The company also said build 17127 has been released to Insiders in the Slow ring and will be releasing the ISO version next week.
With this build, Microsoft is introducing “Cortana Show Me” which is a build to Windows 10 settings and is now available to download from the Microsoft Store. “In our preview app, Cortana will show you how to change settings step-by-step.

It will provide playable step-by-step guides to over 50 Windows Settings. It also allows you to replay a guide if you missed a step or want to watch it again.
