Microsoft starts making Windows 10 20H2 available

Microsoft has started a few moments ago the process of making available the last major update of Windows 10 in 2020. It is Windows 10 20H2, that is to say Windows 10 of October 2020, and it lasted several months in beta.

As you can imagine, this new version of the operating system comes with a few new features, and the first is its change of look in the Start menu. The new design removes the solid color behind the app logos and instead adds a transparent background. The Start menu remains the same for use.

Windows 10 20H2 is also an opportunity to have something new with the Alt + Tab keyboard shortcut. This combination displays all open software, and now we also find open tabs in Microsoft Edge.

Another novelty is the one we talked about a few days ago and which is of particular interest to players. Windows 10 gets a specific setting to change the screen refresh rate. This is especially great for those who have a screen above 60Hz, as it now allows you to easily change your refresh rate, you just need to go to Settings> System> Video> Advanced video settings.

For the rest, notifications now include application logos to make them easier to manage and identify. Microsoft has also organized the taskbar for new Windows 10 users. Finally, tablet mode no longer displays a notification if you are using a 2-in-1 laptop.

How to download Windows 10 20H2?

As always, to download the Windows 10 update for October 2020, just go to Settings> Updates & Security and click the “Check for updates” button. Microsoft specifies that this is a gradual deployment, in particular to alleviate the high volume of downloads from the servers. This means that it will reach some users today, but it may take weeks to reach all users.
