Windows 10 October final update preview out; Start menu looks refreshed

The Windows 10 20H2 update is all set to come out in October. Microsoft has released a final preview update for the same. Let us have a look at what all this update is having in store for everyone. 

  • Refreshed Start Menu: The Start menu has been designed to look very neat and precise. The updated menu would no longer be making use of solid color backplates behind app logos. The menu background has also been made to be partially translucent. This effect has been given to gels well with both dark and light themes of the operating system.

Users can apply the color they like by selecting the same within the ‘Color’ option under Settings. 

  • Chromium Edge Browser: The Chromium Edge Browser comes pre-installed with the Windows 10 update. This browser promises a faster browsing speed, improved security features. Besides this, there is also an Internet Explorer mode to maintain connectivity with classic apps. 

Apart from the above two listed features, some other aspects of Windows 10 OS include improved notifications and the ability to carry out the Alt+Tab functionality via the Edge tabs. Besides these, a few characteristics from the Control Panel page would be transported to the updated Settings page as Microsoft plans on completely wiping out the earlier system tool. 

The latest Windows 10 build has been undergoing testing within the Insiders program for the last few months. However, a post has made its way into the Windows Blog stating that the update arriving with the latest release would most likely be the final update for the Windows 10 OS, although Microsoft has not stated anything about this. This build is expected to be highly stable and error-free, as it will be the last one. 

However, the Linux users would be keen on checking the Windows Subsystem for a known bug that existed for a while. Users in the Beta and Release Preview with version 19042.508 would want to check the “Element not Found” issue. The bug is usually found when the users attempt to start the Windows Subsystem for Linux. The release notes arriving with the build should be able to give more information regarding this. 

For users who are a part of the Insider program within the Beta and Release Preview channel and want to check out this latest build, they would need to access the Windows Update panel and download and install Build with version 19042.508 (KB4571756). For users who are a part of the beta channel, the update should reach them automatically. 

Microsoft has not revealed anything as to what would be next in line after this release comes out. However, there are rumors which suggest that Microsoft could be shifting to a new time table, in which the team would be giving out just a single Windows 10 update every year. It would mostly be during the second half of the year. Also, there would be one Windows 10X feature release every year.
