Windows 10 version 20H2 is a service pack-style upgrade and
Microsoft has again confirmed that this update will be rolled
out via an enablement package. The update won’t just offer
minor changes, but some bigger improvements too, including the
theme-aware Start Menu.
Windows 10 20H2 preview builds come with the streamlined design
for the Start menu, which modifies the live tiles so they carry
the same background colour and respect the system-wide theme,
as opposed to the block of colours.
In a new post addressing the enterprise customers, Microsoft
confirmed that it plans to offer version 20H2 as an enablement
package to devices already running Windows 10 May 2020 Update
(version 2004). According to Microsoft, Windows 10 20H2 will
also require June 2020 monthly quality update.
For devices still running version 1909 or 1903, Microsoft says
it will offer version 20H2 to those users as a full feature
Starting August 20, Windows 10’s version 20H2 update is now
available for enterprises or commercial customers for testing
and validation before the general availability.
In other words, the fall 2020 update for Windows 10 is just
around the corner and it is now being feature-locked as
Microsoft prepares the final touches for the major upgrade.
Microsoft is now working on stabilising the version 20H2 and
resolving bugs ahead of the general availability. Naturally,
Windows 10 20H2 will reach the Release Preview Channel of the
Windows Insiders for testing soon enough, ahead of a likely
public release in October/November.
As we first reported in January, Microsoft has been planning to
release the 20H2 update as a followup to the May 2020 Update
(codenamed 20H1). Unlike May 2020 Update, this update is a
but there are some nifty improvements, including new Start
Menu, improved Alt-Tab experience, and Chromium Edge.
