Insider Preview Build for PC: Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14371 for PC | Windows Experience Blog.

Activation Improvements:

...As part of the Windows 10 Anniversary Update and starting with this Insider Preview build, we’re introducing the Activation Troubleshooter that will help you address most commonly encountered activation issues on Genuine Windows devices including those caused by hardware changes. For example – if your device has a digital license (formerly called “digital entitlement”) for Windows 10 Pro from a previously installed activated Windows 10 build but you accidentally re-installed Windows 10 Home on such a device, the troubleshooter will automatically guide you through upgrading to Windows 10 Pro and activate Windows. You can launch the troubleshooter by going to Settings > Update & security > Activation and select Troubleshoot.
Also included is the ability to link your Microsoft account (MSA) to the activation digital license with this Insider Preview build.

Additional information on improvements and fixes is in the referenced blog post.

Insider Preview Build 14383 for PC and Mobile Released to Fast Ring: Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14383 for PC and Mobile | Windows Experience Blog.

The blog post has a long list of fixes, particularly, "updates to the Quick Action area of Action Center will be preserved across upgrades."

A known issue that some have experienced:

If you are seeing a notification pop-up once a day that started on 7/1 saying that your Windows evaluation copy expires on 7/15/2016, don’t worry – this is a superfluous dialog and your OS won’t expire. The dialog will also go away soon.

Insider Preview Build 14905 Released to Fast Ring for PC & Mobile: Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14905 for PC & Mobile | Windows Experience Blog.

Known issues for PC
  • Support for kernel debugging over 1394 has been removed, but will be available in an upcoming kit release. A work-around will be posted to the Debugging Tools for Windows Blog shortly.
  • Adobe Acrobat Reader crashes when you try to launch it.
  • Cortana’s text to speech capabilities is not working in this build. For example, Cortana won’t be able to read text messages out loud for you, tell jokes, sing, or give verbal prompts.
  • When clicking on the power button on the Start menu, it closes the Start menu without opening the flyout with restart/shutdown options appearing. As a workaround – you can right-click on the Start button (or WIN + X) and choose to shutdown via this menu instead.
  • Apps such as Yahoo Mail, Trivia Crack, Google and the Skype Translator Preview app will crash in this build due to a compatibility issue from a recent platform change.
  • The Settings app may crash on certain editions of Windows 10 when navigating to different settings pages due to a missing .dll file. We are working on getting this fixed soon.
