Microsoft has released a fresh new 19H1 preview build for Fast Ring Insiders. Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18282 introduces several new features such as an improved Windows Light Theme, revamped printing options, Intelligent Active Hours for Windows Update, and more.

What is new in Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18282

Windows Light Theme : 

There is a new light theme in Windows 10 that look on the desktop, task bar and action center.

Microsoft has added a new default wallpaper to Windows 10 and enhances light theme look. When you update to this build, your system color won’t automatically change to the new light system color. This is because we want everything to be exactly as you left it before you did the update.

Showing Color Settings with Custom selected in the ”Choose your color” dropdown, and a new separation between Windows mode and app mode

Modern snipping experience :

You can bring it up by pressing WIN+Shift+S by default, although you can also set it up to come up when you press Print Screen. 
And select the window snip option at the top, and snip away! That selection will be remembered the next time you start a snip.

Modern printing experience :

The modern print dialog now supports light theme! In order to improve clarity, Windows has now  updated a number of the printing options to now include icons to help you easily and quickly identify the one you’re looking for. It has also added a line of description to some of the drop down settings which can be seen in the Pages example below, and in other settings. 
If you have a long printer name, it will now wrap rather than being cut off.

Windows Update

Windows Update : 

Pause Updates: The Pause Updates feature is easier to find by surfacing the existing option directly on the ‘Settings > Update and Security > Windows Update’ page. Just like before, when Pause is enabled, some updates, like Windows Defender definition updates, will continue to be installed. In addition, Pause can be enabled for either a pre-defined number of days or until the specific day

Intelligent Active Hours:  Now, Windows can automatically adjust active hours for you based on your device activity. Just go into ‘Settings > Update and Security > Windows Update > Change active hours’ page to turn this setting on and know that reboots will not disrupt your productive time.
