The Windows 10 version 20H2 known issues list is out with zero surprises

Today, Microsoft released the Windows 10 October 2020 Update, also known as version 20H2. As usual, that means that a whole bunch of documentation is getting updated with support for the new version. As usual, that includes a new known issues list.

The good news is that there are no surprises. The known issues are exactly the same as the ones for Windows 10 version 2004. Here are the two issues that are listed as being investigated:

  • Errors or issues during or after updating devices with certain Conexant audio drivers
    Devices with affected Conexant or Synaptics audio drivers might receive a stop error with a blue screen.
  • Errors or issues during or after updating devices with Conexant ISST audio drivers
    Devices with affected Conexant ISST audio drivers might receive an error or have issues with Windows 10, version 2004.

It's no surprise that there's nothing new. Windows 10 version 20H2 has the same bits as version 2004. It just has an enablement package that bumps up the build number by one and lights up some features. All of the new features rolling out have been hidden on your system for months.

Another thing that Microsoft has updated is its list of features that have been deprecated or removed. Nothing has been deprecated in version 20H2, but MBAE service metadata has been removed. Obviously, it's a pretty minor update, so not much has changed there.

In short, there aren't any surprises in Windows 10 version 20H2, but there's no reason that there should be any.
