Windows 10 continues to play a key role in how we learn, live and work during these unique times, and we want to ensure a high quality and reliable experience, while also delivering you the latest innovations. In mid-April, we announced the initial availability of the Windows 10 May 2020 Update through the Windows Insider Program’s Release Preview ring, allowing us to both monitor and improve the quality of the release.

Windows 10 21H1 New Features:
The upcoming version of Windows is expected to bring in some new features, as well as remove a few. The update is said to be minor as it will only be an enabling update. This means that the Windows 10 21H1 update will only enable certain features that are already hidden away in the 20H2.
Removal of Design Synchronization
Windows settings that allow users to sync their desktop background across all their devices will now be disabled. Users will now have to manage their desktop background manually across different devices once Windows has been updated to 21H1.
Search Bar results now in Dark Theme
Microsoft has now also made the Search Bar results have a dark background when the Dark Theme is enabled. With the introduction of this feature, Windows now covers all aspects of its User Interface that support the Dark Theme. Previously, the background of the search results was white (Light) even though the theme of the PC was set to dark.
Disk management and Optimize Drives options in the Settings app
With the installation of Windows 10 21H1, the Disk Management configurations have been duplicated in the Settings application. The system disk was previously only manageable through the Control Panel.
The Disk Management Console still has to be accessed if you want to resize, format, or repartition the drives. You can currently access the Disk Management Console by typing in diskmgmt.msc in Run.
Stable release of TLS 1.3
Transport layer Security (TLS) 1.3 is now off of the experimental chart and released as a stable version in Windows 10 21H1. As you may find with any older version of Windows 10, TLS 1.3 is concatenated with “experimental” which is no longer in Windows 10 21H1.
Task Manager displays process architecture
The “Details” tab in the Task Manager now also displays the architecture of the process in which it is run, for example, x86, x64, or ARM. This feature is especially useful for ARM systems.
On-screen keyboard split-view
The on-screen keyboard is an ease-of-access feature in Windows 10 that allows users to use a virtual keyboard accessible through a mouse.
Multi-app experience in Your Phone application
Your Phone is a popular Microsoft application that allows you to connect your phone to your Windows PC by synchronizing your Microsoft account. With this feature, users can now launch Android applications on their PC directly from the Your Phone application. Moreover, each application can be launched separately in a new window.
Built-in storage health monitoring
Microsoft is also working on incorporating a built-in feature in Windows so that users can monitor the health of their storage devices (hard drives) before they actually fail. This will help you avoid any sudden crashes so that you are not worried about losing your data or recovering it from a broken device.
easy to use
The best, most automated and easy to use OS in the history of computing.
It just takes a little time to get used to. I was used to win 7 but now I like win10 better.
Things are mostly improving but there are problems like not being able to get dts/dts-hd or ac3 sound in any audio system anymore. Spending a lot of time to fix it. The result? Nothing!
