Windows anniversary update 2020

Windows anniversary update 2020 DEFAULT

The first major update to Windows 10 -- the Windows 10 Anniversary Update -- started rolling out to all users on August 2. This update brings several changes to the operating system, including visual modifications, improvements to the Edge browser and new features such as Windows Ink.

You don't need to do anything to get the update. Windows 10 automatically scans for, downloads and installs new updates to your device (though the Anniversary Update will require a restart).

But maybe you've been waiting for Windows Update to automatically update your device...and it still hasn't updated. Because Microsoft is rolling out the update slowly (very slowly...), the Anniversary Update may not be available for your device yet.

Also, if you recently upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1, the Anniversary Update will not be automatically available to you until you've had Windows 10 for at least 30 days. If you're still within this 30-day window, you can get the Anniversary Update right now by deleting the Windows.old folder with Disk Cleanup.

Once you delete the Windows.old folder, you can manually prompt Windows Update to download the Anniversary Update.

  • Open the Settings menu and go to Update & security > Windows Update.
  • Click Check for updates to prompt your PC to scan for the latest updates. The update will be downloaded and installed automatically.
  • Click Restart Now to restart your PC and complete the installation process.

If this method doesn't work for you, you can manually download the Anniversary Update ISO from Microsoft's Windows 10 update history page.

  • Go to the Windows 10 update history page.
  • Click Get the Anniversary Update now to download the ISO (an EXE file).
  • Run the file to open the Windows 10 Update Assistant, and follow the instructions to complete the installation process.

These two other methods have also been suggested online, but right now neither of them will help you get the Anniversary Update any faster.

  • Enroll in the Windows Insider Program: Windows Insiders have had access to the features and changes present in the Anniversary Update for some time now, and anyone can enroll a device in the Windows Insider Program. But the Windows Insider Program takes several days, and sometimes weeks, to activate. So you won't receive the latest Windows Insider build immediately upon signing up for the program.
  • Manually install the update using the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool: The Windows 10 Media Creation Tool allows you to create your own Windows 10 installation media (USB, DVD or ISO) to perform a clean installation of the operating system. The Media Creation Tool doesn't yet include the Anniversary Update, so if you attempt to update your system using media created with this tool, you will simply end up reinstalling Windows 10.

    Update: The Media Creation Tool has been updated to include build 14393.0. Note that this is not the final release build of the Anniversary Update, which is build 14393.1.

Checking for the Windows 10 Anniversary Update

Q.How do I get the Windows 10 Anniversary Update on my PC?

A. Microsoft began to roll out the Windows 10 Anniversary Update in early August, so if you have Windows 10 installed on your computer, the new software may already be there — or waiting to download and install, if you use a metered connection or have not been online much. The Start menu and a few other system elements look a bit different in the Anniversary Update, but if you do not know what to look for, you can quickly check to confirm your version.

Press the Windows and R keys on the keyboard to call up the Run box. Type in “winver” (without quotation marks) and press the Enter key. If you see “Version 1607” listed, you have the Anniversary Update already installed by way of the Automatic Updates setting in the system’s Windows Update tool.

If you do not have the Anniversary Update, open the Start menu and go to Settings, then open Updates & Security and select Windows Update. Click or tap the Check for Updates button. The Anniversary Update, security patches and other software for your PC should begin to download. Follow the steps onscreen to install the update.

Windows 10 version history

Version history of the Windows 10 operating system

Windows 10 is a series of operating systems developed by Microsoft. Microsoft described Windows 10 as an "operating system as a service" that would receive ongoing updates to its features and functionality, augmented with the ability for enterprise environments to receive non-critical updates at a slower pace or use long-term support milestones that will only receive critical updates, such as security patches, over their five-year lifespan of mainstream support. It was first released in July 2015.

Channels

Main article: Windows Insider § Channels

Windows 10 Insider Preview builds are delivered to Insiders in three different channels (previously "rings").[1] Insiders in the Dev Channel (previously Fast Ring) receive updates prior to those in the Beta Channel (previously Slow Ring), but might experience more bugs and other issues.[2][3] Insiders in the Release Preview Channel (previously Release Preview Ring) do not receive updates until the version is almost available to the public, but are comparatively more stable.[4]

PC version history

Mainstream builds of Windows 10 are labeled "YYMM", with YY representing the two-digit year and MM representing the month of planned release (for example, version 1507 refers to builds which initially released in July 2015). Starting with version 20H2, Windows 10 release nomenclature changed from the year and month pattern to a year and half-year pattern (YYH1, YYH2).[5]

Version 1507

Main article: Windows 10 version history (version 1507)

Version 1511 (November Update)

Main article: Windows 10 version 1511

The second stable build of Windows 10 is version 1511 (build number 10586), known as the November Update. It was codenamed "Threshold 2" (TH2) during development. This version was distributed via Windows Update on November 12, 2015. It contains various improvements to the operating system, its user interface, bundled services, as well as the introduction of Skype-based universal messaging apps, and the Windows Store for Business and Windows Update for Business features.[6][7][8][9]

On November 21, 2015, the November Update was temporarily pulled from public distribution.[10][11] The upgrade was re-instated on November 24, 2015, with Microsoft stating that the removal was due to a bug that caused privacy and data collection settings to be reset to defaults when installing the upgrade.[12]

Version 1607 (Anniversary Update)

Main article: Windows 10 version 1607

The third stable build of Windows 10 is called version 1607, known as the Anniversary Update. It was codenamed "Redstone 1" (RS1) during development. This version was released on August 2, 2016, a little over one year after the first stable release of Windows 10.[13][14][15][16] The Anniversary Update was originally thought to have been set aside for two feature updates. While both were originally to be released in 2016, the second was moved into 2017 so that it would be released in concert with that year's wave of Microsoft first-party devices.[17][18][14]

The Anniversary Update introduces new features such as the Windows Ink platform, which eases the ability to add stylus input support to Universal Windows Platform apps and provides a new "Ink Workspace" area with links to pen-oriented apps and features,[19][14] enhancements to Cortana's proactive functionality,[20] a dark user interface theme mode, a new version of Skype designed to work with the Universal Windows Platform, improvements to Universal Windows Platform intended for video games,[13] and offline scanning using Windows Defender.[21] The Anniversary Update also supports Windows Subsystem for Linux, a new component that provides an environment for running Linux-compatible binary software in an Ubuntu-based user mode environment.[22]

On new installations of Windows 10 on systems with Secure Boot enabled, all kernel-mode drivers issued after July 29, 2015 must be digitally signed with an Extended Validation Certificate issued by Microsoft.[23]

This version is the basis for "LTSB 2016", the first upgrade to the LTSB since Windows 10's release. The first LTSB release, based on RTM (version 1507), has been retroactively named "LTSB 2015".

Version 1703 (Creators Update)

Main article: Windows 10 version 1703

The fourth stable build of Windows 10 is called version 1703, known as the Creators Update. It was codenamed "Redstone 2" (RS2) during development. This version was announced on October 26, 2016,[24][25] and was released for general availability on April 11, 2017,[26][27] and for manual installation via Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant and Media Creation Tool tools on April 5, 2017.[28] This update primarily focuses on content creation, productivity, and gaming features—with a particular focus on virtual and augmented reality (including HoloLens and virtual reality headsets) and on aiding the generation of three-dimensional content.

It supports a new virtual reality workspace designed for use with headsets; Microsoft announced that several OEMs planned to release VR headsets designed for use with the Creators Update.[27][26][29]

Controls for the Game Bar and Game DVR feature have moved to the Settings app, while a new "Game Mode" option allows resources to be prioritized towards games.[30] Integration with Microsoft acquisition Mixer (formerly Beam)[31] was added for live streaming.[30] The themes manager moved to Settings app, and custom accent colors are now possible.[30] The new app Paint 3D allows users to produce artwork using 3D models; the app is designed to make 3D creation more accessible to mainstream users.[32]

Windows 10's privacy settings have more detailed explanations of data that the operating system may collect. Additionally, the "enhanced" level of telemetry collection was removed.[30] Windows Update notifications may now be "snoozed" for a period of time, the "active hours" during which Windows will not try to install updates may now extend up to 18 hours in length, and updates may be paused for up to seven days.[30] Windows Defender has been replaced by the universal app Windows Defender Security Center.[30] Devices may optionally be configured to prevent use of software from outside of Microsoft Store, or warn before installation of apps from outside of Microsoft Store.[33] "Dynamic Lock" allows a device to automatically lock if it is outside of the proximity of a designated Bluetooth device, such as a smartphone.[34] A "Night Light" feature was added, which allows the user to change the color temperature of the display to the red part of the spectrum at specific times of day (similarly to the third-party software f.lux).[35]

Version 1709 (Fall Creators Update)

Main article: Windows 10 version 1709

The fifth stable build of Windows 10 is called version 1709, known as the Fall Creators Update. It was codenamed "Redstone 3" (RS3) during development. This version was released on October 17, 2017.[36][37][38] Version 1709 introduces a new feature known as "My People", where shortcuts to "important" contacts can be displayed on the taskbar. Notifications involving these contacts appear above their respective pictures, and users can communicate with the contact via either Skype, e-mail, or text messaging (integrating with Android and Windows 10 Mobile devices). Support for additional services, including Xbox, Skype for Business, and third-party integration, are to be added in the future. Files can also be dragged directly to the contact's picture to share them.[39] My People was originally announced for Creators Update, but was ultimately held over to the next release,[40][41] and made its first public appearance in Build 16184 in late April 2017.[37] A new "Files-on-Demand" feature for OneDrive serves as a partial replacement for the previous "placeholders" function.[42]

It also introduces a new security feature known as "controlled folder access", which can restrict the applications allowed to access specific folders. This feature is designed mainly to defend against file-encrypting ransomware.[43]

Version 1803 (April 2018 Update)

Main article: Windows 10 version 1803

The sixth stable build of Windows 10 is called version 1803, known as the April 2018 Update. It was codenamed "Redstone 4" (RS4) during development. This version was released as a manual download on April 30, 2018, with a broad rollout on May 8, 2018.[44][45] This update was originally meant to be released on April 10, but was delayed because of a bug which could increase chances of a "Blue Screen of Death" (Stop error).[46]

The most significant feature of this build is Timeline, which is displayed within Task View. It allows users to view a list of recently-used documents and websites from supported applications ("activities"). When users consent to Microsoft data collection via Microsoft Graph, activities can also be synchronized from supported Android and iOS devices.[47][48][49][42]

Version 1809 (October 2018 Update)

Main article: Windows 10 version 1809

The seventh stable build of Windows 10 is called version 1809, known as the October 2018 Update. It was codenamed "Redstone 5" (RS5) during development. This version was released on October 2, 2018.[50] Highlighted features on this build include updates to the clipboard function (including support for clipboard history and syncing with other devices), SwiftKeyvirtual keyboard, Snip & Sketch, and File Explorer supporting the dark color scheme mode.[51]

On October 6, 2018, the build was pulled by Microsoft following isolated reports of the update process deleting files from user directories.[52] It was re-released to Windows Insider channel on October 9, with Microsoft citing a bug in OneDrive's Known Folder Redirection function as the culprit.[53][54]

On November 13, 2018, Microsoft resumed the rollout of 1809 for a small percentage of users.[55][56]

The long term servicing release, Windows 10 Enterprise 2019 LTSC, is based on this version and is equivalent in terms of features.[57]

Version 1903 (May 2019 Update)

Main article: Windows 10 version 1903

The eighth stable build of Windows 10, version 1903, codenamed "19H1", was released for general availability on May 21, 2019 after being on the Insider Release Preview branch since April 8, 2019.[58] Because of new practices introduced after the problems affecting the 1809 update, Microsoft used an intentionally slower Windows Update rollout process.[59][60][61]

New features in the update include a redesigned search tool—separated from Cortana and oriented towards textual queries, a new "Light" theme (set as default on Windows 10 Home) using a white-colored taskbar with dark icons, the addition of symbols and kaomoji to the emoji input menu, the ability to "pause" system updates, automated "Recommended troubleshooting", integration with Google Chrome on Timeline via an extension, support for SMS-based authentication on accounts linked to Microsoft accounts, and the ability to run Windows desktop applications within the Windows Mixed Reality environment (previously restricted to universal apps and SteamVR only). A new feature on Pro, Education, and Enterprise known as Windows Sandbox allows users to run applications within a secured Hyper-V environment.[62][63]

A revamped version of Game Bar was released alongside 1903, which redesigns it into a larger overlay with a performance display, Xbox friends list and social functionality, and audio and streaming settings.[64]

Version 1909 (November 2019 Update)

Main article: Windows 10 version 1909

The ninth stable build of Windows 10, version 1909, codenamed "19H2", was released to the public on November 12, 2019 after being on the Insider Release Preview branch since August 26, 2019.[65] Unlike previous updates, this one was released as a minor service update without major new features.[66]

Version 2004 (May 2020 Update)

Main article: Windows 10 version 2004

The tenth stable build of Windows 10, version 2004, codenamed "20H1", was released to the public on May 27, 2020 after being on the Insider Release Preview branch since April 16, 2020.[67] New features included faster and easier access to Bluetooth settings and pairing, improved Kaomojis, renamable virtual desktops, DirectX12 Ultimate, a chat-based UI for Cortana, greater integration with Android phones on the Your Phone app, Windows Subsystem for Linux 2 (WSL 2), and WSL 2 version includes a custom Linux kernel, unlike older WSL, the ability to use Windows Hello without the need for a password, improved Windows Search with integration with File Explorer, a cloud download option to reset Windows, accessibility improvements, and the ability to view disk drive type and discrete graphics card temperatures in Task Manager.[68][69]

Version 20H2 (October 2020 Update)

Main article: Windows 10 version 20H2

The eleventh stable build of Windows 10, version 20H2, was released to the public on October 20, 2020 after being on the Beta Channel since June 16, 2020.[70] New features include new theme-aware tiles in the Start Menu, new features and improvements to Microsoft Edge (such as a price comparison tool, + integration for tab switching, and easy access to pinned tabs), a new out-of-box experience with more personalization for the taskbar, notifications improvements, improvements to tablet mode, improvements to Modern Device Management, and the move of the System tab in Control Panel to the About page in Settings. This is the first version of Windows 10 to include the new Chromium-based Edge browser by default.[71][72][73]

Version 21H1 (May 2021 Update)

The Windows 10 May 2021 Update[74] (codenamed "21H1"[75]) is the eleventh and current major update to Windows 10 as the cumulative update to the October 2020 Update, and carries the build number 10.0.19043. The first preview was released to Insiders who opted in to Beta Channel on February 17, 2021.[76] The update began rolling out on May 18, 2021.[77] Notable changes in the May 2021 Update include:[78]

Ich habe das MCT für die Version 1511 auf meinem Rechner. Wird dieses automatisch erkennen, dass eine neue Version von MS bereitgestellt wurde und sich selbst updaten?

Wouldn't it be wonderful if the Media Creation Tool actually told you what version of Widows 10 you were going to get?  Or wouldn't it be great if you could somehow tell from the windows.iso file what version of Windows 10 it was going to install?

Actually it might be possible to do the latter.  Right click setup.exe in the ISO and select Properties then Details.  I'm not sure what the correct product version is but it isn't 10.0.10586 which indicates the 1511 version.

Yeah. No idea why it doesn't as several different versions are available for download if you know where to look.

As for knowing what you're about to install, I've found checking the setup.exe file properties in the root will tell you which build it is.

You edited your comment, so I'll do the same :p

Just to make it even more confusing, 10586 includes 1511, 1602 and 1604. This because setup.exe historically did not include minor build numbers. Looking at recent insider builds it does now though, so the setup.exe file from today should show 10.0.14393.5 (as I understand it .10 will be delivered separately via WU).

Top Windows 10 Anniversary Update features

Windows 10 Anniversary Update

Anniversary Update is the official name Microsoft is giving to the next major update of Windows 10. The company made the announcement during its annual Build developer conference. The Windows 10 Anniversary Update (version 1607) — formerly known as “Redstone 1” was officially released on August 2, 2016, as a free update for customers.

The new update brings a number of improvements and feature based on feedback provided by the users in the Windows Insider Program.
