Microsoft has just released the latest update to Windows 10 that we’ve all been waiting for, Windows 10 20H2. Previously released on the Windows Insider Program, the October 2020 update has finally made its way to a stable version available to the public. Once you have updated your Windows 10 to the newer version, the exact build of the operating system will be changed to 19042.572.
Microsoft has moved from a numbering convention to an alphanumeric convention naming their releases. So version number of this release is 20H2 instead of version 2009.
Microsoft is of the opinion that this is more understandable to the general public and not just to technical people. 20H2 represents the release of the building in the second half of 2020.
Let’s see what the new update brings to the table.
