Everything that you need to know about Microsoft next major Windows 10 20H2 update


Here is everything that Microsoft will be featuring in the next major Windows 10 20H2 update

Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 10 Major update will be known as a 20H2 update, which will be shipped as a second major update this year. The company released its Windows 10 May 2020 aka 2004 update on May 27 and will be launching the 20H2 update by the end of the year. Like Windows 10 version 19H2, the upcoming fall feature update will be dedicated to servicing the existing May 2020 Update with bug fixes and a bunch of improvements.

If you follow all the Windows 10 update then you must be knowing that the Windows 10’s fall feature update focuses on performance enhancements and bug fixes. This update is currently available for beta testing with Windows Insiders and is already live in the Beta Channel of the program. Below are the features that will be introduced in the upcoming Windows 10 20H2 update.

Tablet experience for 2-in-1 devices

With the help of the new Windows 10 20H2 update, while you detach the keyboard on a 2-in-1 device, notification toast asking you to switch to tablet mode will no longer appear and instead, Microsoft will switch you directly into the new tablet experience. You can change this setting by going to Settings > System > Tablet.

Built-in Microsoft Edge (Chromium) 

Microsoft’s new update will integrate the newest Chromium version of its Edge browser. Currently, Microsoft Edge is available only through the Windows Update or as a manual download from the company’s website. So with the new 20H2 update, Chromium Microsoft Edge will be integrated directly into Windows 10, which should expand the user base given new Edge comes with a better design and privacy-focused approach.

Alt + Tab

The company has introduced a new way to use the At + Tab keyboard shortcut. Currently, Alt + Tab app switcher allows you to switch between the open windows of your apps, but in version 20H2, Microsoft says it has updated Alt + Tab to show your browser tabs right alongside your apps.

Changing the display refresh rate

The Windows 10 users that have a monitor that offers 120Hz, 144Hz, or higher refresh rate will be allowed to switch between the highest and the lowest refresh rates. Starting with Windows 10 version 20H2, you can head to Settings > System > Display > Advanced Display Settings > Display Adapter Properties and quickly change the Refresh rate.

  • Notification experience: You can now select the ‘X’ on the top right corner of a notification toast to quickly dismiss it. The ‘X’ option replaces the original right-faced arrow.
  • Taskbar: In this Windows 10 update the OS will adjust the taskbar icon layout on new PCs based on your Microsoft account usage.
  • Search bar: Microsoft is also experimenting with the smaller search box on the taskbar.
  • The update will also bring in Modern Device Management (MDM) improvements.
  • Other performance improvements and bug fixes.
