Windows 10 20H1 build 18875

Windows 10 20H1 build is now available to Fast and Skip Ahead Insiders. As a quick reminder, Microsoft is merging these two Insiders rings starting next month.

This means that Fast and Skip Ahead Insiders will receive the same preview builds in the future. Slow and Release Preview rings can still access Windows 10 May 2019 Update builds until Microsoft release the OS to the general public.

The company plans to launch the next feature update later this year. However, 20H1 is expected to launch in the first half of 2020.

Now, getting back to Windows 10 build 18875, let’s have a look at the list of general fixes and improvements.
