Windows 10, which was released in 2015, has gone through many iterations through the years. Microsoft has been pushing major feature updates for all new versions of the OS to remain appealing and remain updated. One of the latest such feature updates is the Windows 10 20H2 update. Also knows as October 2020 update, it is now rolling out, bringing some significant changes.
One of the most noticeable changes is the new start menu design. Microsoft is making way for a more minimalist tiles and icons design, making it single-colored and semi-transparent, instead of punchy colors which were present before. This new start menu design makes Windows 10’s light and dark themes more appealing. However, if you like colorful themes, you can change it by choosing an accent color in the settings. Other changes include the ability to change the refresh rate of your display right from Settings, changes to make notifications more comfortable and visible, and a cleaner, more personalized taskbar with less clutter.
Microsoft Edge also gets new features such as Collections (which allows you to share and save content you find online easily) and Price Comparison (which looks up the prices of things in several retailers to allow you to find the lowest price) are coming ahead of the Black Friday and Christmas shopping seasons. The update may appear on your PC in a few weeks as the updates are coming in batches. Microsoft is restricting the update to roll out slowly to ensure a reliable download experience. Although there are a few minor bugs in the update, most of the users will not have any problem with the update.
