Mid-summer is that time of the year when it’s too hot to go outside and garden so I’m inside checking on the status of various computers and reviewing what needs to be done to keep them in a happy, healthy state. The first thing I do is check to see what feature release version I’m on. If you are still running Windows 10 2004 or 20H2, it’s time to move to 21H1. (If you have a fast computer and an SSD drive the process should be quick; it took me about 20 minutes from start to finish to install the feature release.)
I remain a fan of using the targetreleaseversion (TRV for short), where you use either a registry key (with Windows 10 Home) or a group policy setting (with Windows 10 Pro) to select the feature release version you want. An easy way to use the registry key method is with links on the Askwoody site. If you’ve used the registry key method in the past to stay on 2004 or 20H2 you can now download the 21H1 registry key and install it.
