Moments after users began noticing a new Insider build accompanying their Windows Defender updates; the Windows team issued a new update log to explain some of the changes coming with the release of the preview build 14901 for PCs.

While not as robust as the recent set of build releases, today’s What’s new section for preview build 14901 brings a bit of a head turner in offering File Explorer notifications.

What’s new in Build 14901

Improving Product Education: As part of an effort to explore new ways of educating our customers on features in Windows 10 – we are testing out new notifications within File Explorer. They’re designed to help customers by providing quick, easy information about things they can do or new features they can try to have a better experience with Windows 10. If you want to opt out of these notifications, you can do so by unchecking ‘Show sync provider notifications’ from the Options menu in the File Explorer View tab.
