New version for Windows 10: what’s new

New version for Microsoft's operating system, but intended for insiders: here's what changes and how to download it.

Microsoft has announced, and released, the new version of Windows 10. The new version, dedicated to members of the Windows Insider beta testing program, brings with it some useful changes, aimed at improving the user experience, which will soon find space in the stable release of the operating system.

The package released by Microsoft is the Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.2020.0 and is dedicated to all those more experienced users, or at least with a greater familiarity in the use of the operating system, constantly engaged in the tests that follow the changes made to the latest version of Windows in operation. Initially available only to developers, Windows Insider has allowed to involve even more Microsoft's audience, making it an active part of a testing process that puts the new features to the test, but also allows you to receive direct feedback on user satisfaction almost in real time.

Windows 10 update, all the news

The innovations introduced by the latest release concern a particular feature, namely the one related to the capture of the screen image. As stated with a post in the program's blog, Microsoft is currently working on a functional update aimed at improving the feature, especially with apps that often access the clipboard.

With the occasion, Microsoft has also taken care to remove a specific aspect of screen capture, namely the ability to copy and paste a screenshot directly within a folder present in File Explorer. In fact, through the reports of Windows Insider users, Microsoft has managed to identify a misbehavior related to this action.

For the moment, therefore, users will have to give up making this operation although the development team has confirmed that it has taken charge of the problem and is taking steps to resolve it in order to integrate the feature again in the future.

Windows 10 update, how to download it

To access the Windows Insider releases you need to subscribe to the program. Doing so is simple: just enter Windows settings, go to Update and Security and then Windows Insider Program. The procedure, very quick and free, requires a Microsoft account and allows you to choose which release channel you want to be part of.

Once you've completed the registration you can download the packages, released as cumulative updates, through the normal Windows Update present in Update and Security (following the same path used to sign up). Inside the window, you can proceed with checking for new releases. To access this specific package, dedicated to the Beta Channel, you must have previously installed build 20H2 19042.662 or a more updated version.
