A new version of Windows 10, available for commercial pre-release validation

Window 10 latest version 20H2 will be delivered to devices currently running Windows 10, version 2004 using an enablement package. Now Window 10 customers can quickly update devices from version 2004 to version 20H2, with very little downtime involved. They can also explore the new Local Users and Groups mobile device management (MDM) policy, which allows administrators to make granular changes to a local group on a managed device.

As with Windows 10, versions 1903 and 1909, versions 2004 and 20H2 share a common core operating system with an identical set of system files. New features are included in monthly quality updates for version 2004 in an inactive and dormant state. These new 20H2 features remain dormant until they are turned on through the “enablement package,” a small, quick-to-install “master switch” that activates the Windows 10, version 20H2 features.

Microsoft in a statement said that “Microsoft not only want to ensure that user have access to the upcoming Windows 10 feature update payload via any channel you may use today, they also want to enable you to validate with confidence.” Therefore, customers in the Windows Insider Program for Business can once again receive Microsoft Support for the Windows 10, version 20H2 build available through WSUS, ISO download, Azure Marketplace, and directly from Windows Update in the Beta and Release Preview Channels.

If you run into a severe issue that prevents you or other users in your organization from using a device, or compromises security or personal data, use the online form to request assistance directly from Microsoft Support—at no cost to you.
