Upgrade might do the trick: Settings -> System -> About -> Change product key or upgrade your edition of Windows -> Change product key

You should know using Windows Insider means you're willing to be a Tester
Insider version will be served with Watermark build in the lower right corner of the screen and this version can't be activated permanently

all Insider Preview Builds are evaluation copies and that is normal, you can upgrade to a more recent Builds as always without losing anything.

If you upgrade - you should not lose any programs or favorites.  that is what upgrade is for... then you should still be Activated and get a new Timebomb date....

I say should due to I really have no idea what all you might have changed. but UPGRADE is exactly that keep all your stuff and get the newest. even if you have NO upgrades allowed you can DL the latest ISO directly from MS

then upgrade that way.... also if you have Enterprise installed, the Professional version will upgrade perfectly... (I know due to that is what i do all the time..) image.thumb.png.96275ecde44eeee2e5e2bb32ee9ff139.png

After expiry date,the evaluation copy will work for a short time,or will be unusable?

It will be unusable, but do not worry, Microsoft will have released many, many more Insider Previews by then, and the time-bomb date will have changed.  You should not expect to use an Insider Preview forever.  It is simply an evaluation build, nothing more, and nothing less.

It happened to me last year when it upgraded/changed from version 16xx to version  17xx I lost some program files and favorites (both IE and Chrome).

I already downloaded the Win.10 Pro Build 1709 from MS,and how could I upgrade from that ISO without loosing any program and favorite files?

I know to burn that ISO in  a DVD,and install from there.

If the expiry date is tonight at 7:38 PM,when would be the shut down time?

I burn to USB which is faster, smaller and works better (IMO). and as for loosing some programs/files, do remember that nothing is ever guaranteed when you use MS Products and I stated SHOULD NOT. ?

Unfortunately,my laptop's BIOS doesn't has USB boot option. ?

Don't worry bro, you can use any @ctivator XD jaja :) But remember that any Insider Preview Build has tons of bugs. For that reason I'm a retired Insider guy jajaja XD
