Windows 10 20H2 set to launch soon: All you need to know

Windows 10 20H2 Start Menu

Microsoft has already published Windows 10 version 20H2 update
for enterprise customers for testing ahead of its anticipated
arrival in late 2020. We’re expecting the update to begin
rolling out to customers next month or November, and here’s
everything you need to know.

Windows 10 version 20H2 update, unofficially known as version
2009, is being touted as a service pack-style update to devices
already running Windows 10 version 2004 (May 2020 Update).

I believe Microsoft’s current plan is to push May 2020 Update
(version 2004) to more users before widely rolling out version
20H2. This makes sense since version 20H2 will activate dormant
features within Windows 10 version 2004, including the
new Start Menu and multitasking improvements.

Microsoft has already started testing Windows 10 KB4562830
‘enablement package’ update.

KB4562830 will upgrade Windows 10 version 2004 to a slightly
newer build number (19042) and activate dormant features that
have already been delivered to version 2004 via August Patch
Tuesday update.

Before and after 20H2 update

Like last year’s November 2019 Update, Windows 10’s new
upgrade enablement technology will ensure that your apps
will work with the new build, and it will also mean less
headache for everyone, especially businesses and system admins
while upgrading their PCs in the organization.

If you’re a Windows Insider, the first and fairly stable builds
of 20H2 are available for download on the company’s Beta
channel. To get the feature update now, you’ll need to
join the Insider program, go to the Beta Channel and seek the
20H2 builds from Settings > Update & Security > Windows
Update.

It’s also worth noting that “20H2” designation will be used
instead of a versioning number this time.

It’s not yet clear why Microsoft made this change, but for
consumers, Microsoft says it will continue to use a “friendly
name” like the “November 2020 Update” if the update is released
in November.

Next month, Microsoft is also expected to announce the new
Surface Laptop ‘Sparti’ in a virtual launch event and more
details on the rollout of 20H2 update could be shared during or
after the event.

As we noted last month, Windows 10 20H2 comes with a new

Start Menu, Edge integration in Alt-Tab, Chromium Edge
pre-installed, and general improvements.
