However, shortly after the error was identified, the software giant provided step-by-step instructions for affected users to switch the system back to the previous operating system.

According to the screenshots shared by a twitter user @NTAuthority, the unexpectedly released build appears to have a redesigned Start menu that looks similar to Windows Lite. the lite build has been in Microsoft testing mode for a long time and is still in development.

The 18947-build that also a GIF search tool was rolled out in preview, fast ring, and slow ring testing, however, it has been halted and is currently no longer available.

In a conversation with The Verge, a Microsoft spokesperson has confirmed that it was not less than a technical error which caused the 32-bit-based systems to receive Internal-Only Windows 10 Build.
