Microsoft Windows – Update 20H2 (October 2020)

It’s happening again!

Another Feature update to Window 10.

Version 20H2 coming to your PC now or in the near future.

(5 November 2020 – Update to previous blog post)

Over the  life of Windows 10 we have seen these versions:

  • The original 1507 (July 2015)
  • 1511 (November 2015) – “November Update”
  • 1607 (August 2016)  – “Anniversary Update”
  • 1703 (April 2017) – “Creators Update”
  • 1709 (September 2017) – “Fall Creators Update”
  • 1803 (March 2018) –  “Spring Creators Update”
  • 1809 (November 2018) – “Redstone 5”
  • 1903 (May 2019) – “May 2019 Update”
  • 1909 (November 2019) – “November 2019 Update”
  • 2004 (June/July 2020) – “May 2020 Update”
  • 20H2 (November 2020) – “October 2020 Update”

This 20H2 update is quite a small update if your PC is already fully updated and you are running 2004. It goes onto most PCs in a few minutes, as I said – if you were already fully up-to-date. Previously, on fairly low spec PCs running the fully updated 1909 it took over an hour to complete the update to 2004. If you have not been keeping your PC fully updated I cannot say how long the update to 20H2 might take, as we keep all our PCs fully updated.
