Windows 10's latest update is nearly here, and you can download it now manually. So now is a good time to go hands-on with the finished product and see what's new for consumers. Windows 10 Version 2004, known as the Windows 10 May 2020 Update, will begin officially rolling out soon with a few notable new features and changes. This certainly isn't a large update, but some of the improvements will be welcomed by many.
To begin, there's a brand new Cortana experience that puts typing front and center. It's a cleaner experience with a UI that I really like, but it's not without issue. For example, the new Cortana cannot access your notebook, and also cannot control skills or connected home devices, which is unfortunate.
Other notable changes in this release are improvements to Virtual Desktops, which can now be named and are saved across reboots. There's also improvements in the Settings, app, including the ability to remove your Microsoft Account password as an option for logging in on your device, restricting it to Windows Hello methods only.
There's plenty of other smaller changes part of this release, including the new Windows Subsystem for Linux 2 which we did not cover in out video walkthrough, as it's not a consumer facing feature. What are you most looking forward to in Windows 10 Version 2004? Let us know in the comments.
