Microsoft release Windows 2020 Update 20H1 and build 19041.207 to Windows Insiders . The 19041.207 version is the final build and it will continue to improve the overall experience of the May 2020 Update on customers’ PCs as part of our normal servicing cadence.
Acccording to Tech news, if you want the update early before testing is finished, you can join the Release Preview update track on your Windows 10 PC by heading to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Insider Program, enabling Insider builds on your system selecting “Just fixes, apps, and drivers.
You’ll receive early versions of Windows 10 updates and apps before they’re released to the wider public. Again, we don’t recommend this for most people.
Microsoft announced a “new Cortana experience” with a “brand-new chat-based UI.” You can now type queries to Cortana rather than say them out loud.
The history of your conversation with Cortana will appear as if it was a chat window, so you can see the results of recent queries just by opening Cortana from the taskbar.
May 2020 Update also features the Windows Subsystem for Linux 2, which includes an in-house custom-built Linux kernel. This Linux integration in Windows 10 will greatly improve the performance of Microsoft’s Linux subsystem in Windows.
Microsoft is also promising to update this kernel through Windows Update, and it will be open source so developers can create their own WSL kernel and contribute changes.
Noteworthy, Microsoft announced ”Windows 10X” version during its fall Surface hardware event in early October. At that time, officials described Windows 10X as built for “dual-screen PCs.” Officials made no mention of 10X being available on any other type of device in early October.
Microsoft has designed its Surface devices. Because the Windows, Office and Surface teams all work together on building hardware and software experiences these days, the choice of wording isn’t coincidental. The unified Microsoft Search technology will be front and center on Windows 10X devices.
On other hand, Microsoft doesn’t even have a single line of code ready for Windows 10X. That makes this the perfect opportunity to give some feedback to Microsoft so they can implement it for the Surface Neo’s release next year, according to Tech news.
