Previously, anyone interested in joining the Windows 10 Insider test project would need to prepare a Windows 10 PC and a Microsoft account. However, with a script available on GitHub, non-Microsoft account users can also participate in the Windows 10 Insider test project. The hack was thanks to the witty developer, who produced a command-line script called “Offline Insider Enroll.”

Just follow a few simple steps to open the door to a barrier-free experience with the Windows 10 Insider test project:
(1) Open the Settings app via the Windows-I key combination, go to ‘Privacy – diagnostics and feedback’, adjust to ‘full’ – so telemetry is enabled and you can take the next step;
(2) Access GitHub to download the latest script for the current system, and you can obtain the script and ReadMe files by extracting the archive;
(3) Go to the folder where the script is located, right-click, select ‘Run the script in administrator mode’;
(4) After executing the script, select the Windows Insider test channel that you want to join;
(5) After selection (type the corresponding option letter), press enter key to confirm;
(6) The system prompts that a reboot is required to enable the Microsoft Flight Test Signature, which is a must for unregistered Windows Insider testers.
If you choose not to install some vulnerability fixes, the script blocks the download of the new preview version:
By simply restarting the script, select Stop receiving the internal preview version to exit the Windows 10 Insider tester project.
After the system is restarted, the script re-modifies the registry key values to restore the non-Insider test state.
