Microsoft has just released the latest update for Windows 10 which we have all been waiting for, Windows 10 20H2. Build: 19042.572
Microsoft has designed the v20H2 with the user’s convenience and ease in their minds. Windows 10 20H2 adds a more seasoned look to its display and general ambiance.
Microsoft has a history of releasing one feature update and one service pack a year. The 20H2 update is a service pack-style update which enables some hidden features in v2004, and introduces a few new ones as well. This service pack is relatively smaller in size than a feature update, which is usually released in the first half of a year, such as v2004 and v1903.
Redesigned Start Menu
The Start Menu is redesigned to catch the user’s eye. It has been made to complement the theme of the computer by removing the solid colors in the background and highlighting the icon itself. The Start Menu in general has been made slightly transparent to look more appealing.
Microsoft has worked to make the Windows 10 20H2 user experience the best of its kind. The Taskbar is now automated to pin programs and applications most used by its users. For example, if a user frequently connects their phone to their computer, it will pin the Phone app to the Taskbar.
Improved Notification Management
Windows 10 came with a Focus Assist feature that let’s users customize their notification prompts in the Notification Tray. However, the Focus Assist had its own notifications which were a distraction. With the 20H2 update, the Focus Assist notifications are turned off by default.
Advanced refresh rate settings
People with monitors that support various refresh rates can now easily switch between their preferred settings directly through the Windows settings. A new category has been introduced as the Refresh Rate in the Advanced Display Settings from where the users can choose their preferred setting.
New Chromium Edge
Windows 10 20H2 now comes with a new Chromium based Microsoft Edge browser which is set to become the default browser. The legacy Edge browser has been removed.
Enhanced tablet experience
With the new update, users will go directly into tablet mode with a touch-sensitive device and no attached keyboard. This will remove the notification the users used to receive from which they were able to select the desired mode.
