Windows 10 Spring Update Announcement

Yes, you’ve heard that right. Even though the 1909 update is still in testing phase, Microsoft has already announced their upcoming Spring 2020 update. And there are a handful of features and improvements included in this particular one!

The 20H1 release will allow users registered in the Windows Insiders Program to beta test them before the update is released to the public. Focusing on the OS performance, this upcoming major version plans on modernizing Windows with a rounded design instead of the traditional block angle look.

Create Event on Taskbar

You’ll also have the ability to add a quick reminder or appointment on your taskbar calendar. Choose a date, time and location (which are optional) and type up the important stuff. All those in Windows Insider Program are able to try this feature out first-hand.


Another great feature shared on the Microsoft blog post is the variety of sign-in options. You can add, change or remove ways to sign-in. These include Fingerprint, Pin, Security Key, or Windows Hello Face (used by your camera). But that’s not necessarily what the big deal is about. It’s the Passwordless option. This is specifically to increase security on your device.

Magnifier and Narrator

Other improvements include the Magnifier UI is now compatible with the dark theme, along with the text sizing alternative. And if you often use the Narrator, this update will allow it to automatically begin content when it loads on the webpage.

There are a plethora of other features included in next year’s 20H1 update, and I’m personally looking forward to seeing how it all pans out. The Language Settings Enhancement is going to be awesome. Installing the elected language pack will allow your display, apps and websites to be readable for you personally.

Keep an eye out for future What’s New on the Microsoft Docs.
