Windows 10 2004 new start menu
It is worth noting that the October 2020 update should be fairly easy to install, because Microsoft said it is using “feature pack” technology to turn it into a small and non-intrusive update . At the same time, the version number of the October 2020 update is the same as the May 2020 update (version 2004), which means that the user’s computer will be upgraded from Build 19041.xxx to Build 19042.xxx.
