Windows 10: A guide to the updates
In mid-October, Microsoft announced the availability of Windows 10 version 20H2, known as the October 2020 Update. But the launch of a major Windows 10 update isn’t the end of a process — it’s really just the beginning. As soon as one of Microsoft’s twice-yearly feature updates is released, the company quickly gets to work on improving it by fixing bugs, releasing security patches, and occasionally adding new features.
Here we’ve summarized what you need to know about every Windows 10 update being released to the public. First come updates to version 20H2, with the most recent updates on top. Next come updates to version 20H1, known as the May 2020 Update; then updates to version 1909, the November 2019 Update; and so on. For each build, we’ve included the date of its initial release and a link to Microsoft’s announcement about it.
