    I have a Nokia 820 with 1GB Ram which came with win 8.1.

    I joined the Windows Insider program and upgraded to Windows 10, now running build 10.0.10586.494 very well, - no problems, runs very smoothly.

    I need to know whether I can keep win10 permanently , or whether MS will disable it sometime as the do not officially support Win 10 on Nokia 820.

    I mean, will they ever force me to go back to 8.1?

    Many thanks.

    Hi, it's unlikely they will force you back to 8.1.
    The only thing you need to watch out for is if you ever need to recover your phone, with the Windows Device Recovery Tool, you will not be able to upgrade to Win10m again, as the phone has been dropped from the Insider programme.
    Unless of course you go down the hacking route.

    When you leave Insider Program, you can upgrade your Lumia 820 to the newer version 10586.545.

    Exactly how do I leave the Insider program? Then, how to I upgrade to .545. Can I not go to .545 from within the Insider program? Sorry, not an expert

    Go into the Insider app and select the Productions ring. you will then be able to update normally using Phone Update like usual.

    I went to the Insider app. There is no tab or link to "Production ring". Only "Get preview builds" If I click there, I get FAST SLOW or "Insider Release Preview". No "Productions ring" How do I leave the Insider program, without losing Windows 10 on my 820?

    Dude! You can't just "lose" a OS from your phone
