SDX Feature Previews
Your PC has been migrated to a non-standard version of Windows 10.
What does this mean?
You either have a preview or an unsupported version of Windows. Feature testing of this helps with the supported Windows 10 desktop (SDX).
On a lab PC
This machine has been randomly selected from a pool that does not participate in exams or teaching.
On a staff PC
Your machine has been upgraded by your IT rep because you are seen as:
- an expert user of a critical business application
- a tech-savvy, early adopter of a newer version of Windows
- performing work representative of your department.
Can I revert to the old version and not be upgraded?
Sorry, no. Windows is an “as-a-service” model. Microsoft updates and releases it worldwide at 6-month intervals.
All Uni PCs will be upgraded in due course. Please use this as a chance to highlight any issues specific to you or your work.
What if I find something that does not work?
Please take note of the following, listed at the bottom-right of the desktop (see examples):
- The OS version (e.g. '1903 SDX Feature Previews' or '1809 Unsupported release')
- The 'Computer' name
