Below is a brief summary of all the changes coming to Windows 10 in the "October 2020 Update" version 20H2 which was released on 20th October 2020.


This is a very minor update so not many changes to cover.


Like previous major updates to Windows 10 it will be released in waves so not everyone will receive it at the same time, so it may be several weeks/months before your computer automatically updates to this new edition.


N.B. For the first few weeks after release it will appear in Windows Update as an 'optional' update which you can choose to install via Windows Settings, after that initial period it will then start to download automatically on all devices,and you will be prompted when it is ready to install.


If you are offered this new version in the first few weeks of release then my advice would be to postpone it for a while to allow for any initial problems to be resolved before you go ahead and upgrade, as with the previous releases there were quite a few initial teething issues which did cause some problems to customers who chose to upgrade immediately. I will update this page and/or my news page when I am happy all teething issues are resolved and it is safe to install.


UPDATE 12/11/20: From my testing all the initial issues with the latest update have now been resolved, and I have successfully installed it on multiple computers without any issues, therefore in my opinion it is now safe to proceed with this update if you get prompted to install it
