Windows 10 Update – 20H2
Windows 10’s October 2020 Update, also known as the 20H2 update, is here. This update is focused on bug and performance fixes, but it has some larger changes—like the removal of the System Control Panel.
This article is up-to-date with the latest changes as of the final version of the 20H2 update, released on October 20, 2020. It’s also known as Windows 10 version 2009, and it has a build number of 19042.572.
To install the update the official way, head to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update. Click “Check for Updates.” If the update is available for your PC, you’ll see “Feature update to Windows 10, version 20H2” here. Click “Download and install” to get it.
If the update isn’t available for your PC, that suggests Microsoft isn’t confident it will perform well on your PC’s hardware yet. To install the update anyway, download and run Microsoft’s Update Assistant tool. Head to the Download Windows 10 page and click “Update now” to get it.
