The Windows 10 October 2020 Update - also known as Windows 10, version 20H2 - is now available! Windows program manager Mabel Gomes explains how easy it is to update your device and access all the latest features to help you stay protected and productive.

Keep in mind that you may not see the "Download and install" option on your device, as we are slowly throttling up availability over the coming weeks. In addition, your device might have a compatibility issue for which we will apply a safeguard hold until we are confident that you will have a good update experience.
