Windows 10 build 18946 is an internal build of the Windows 10 May 2020 Update, which was accidentally released to the Insiders in the Fast Ring on 24 July 2019 alongside builds 18947.rs_xbox and 18947.rs_prerelease. This build includes a number of significant changes to the user interface reminiscent of the design changes later found in Windows 10X and Windows 11.
