The most interesting change is the roll-out of the News and Interest taskbar to Windows 10 20H2, which had been in testing in the Dev channel.
See the full changelog below:
- Microsoft is rolling out news and interests on the Windows taskbar to Beta and Release Preview rings. This has been available in the Dev Channel, with on-going improvements based on Insider feedback. News and interests on the taskbar make it easy to stay up to date with information at a glance, and Microsoft look forward to hearing what you think.
- Microsoft fixed an issue that prevents a site from transitioning out of Microsoft Edge IE Mode when expected.

- Microsoft fixed an issue that causes blank tiles to appear on the Start menu with names such as “ms-resource:AppName” or “ms-resource:appDisplayName”. These blank tiles represent the installed applications and appear for approximately 15 minutes after updating to a newer version of Windows 10. Installing this update prevents these blank tiles from appearing on the Start menu.
