version 20H2 is now obsolete

If you’re still using Windows 10 version 20H2, it’s time to update your PC. Indeed, this version is officially no longer supported since this week by Microsoft. You will therefore need to download a later version to continue receiving updates on your PC and to stay protected against security vulnerabilities.

Microsoft released its traditional Patch Tuesday earlier this week. If you go to Windows 10 Settings and search for new updates, you will find it under the name: 2022-05 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 for x64-based Systems (KB5013942).

Although this patch was still offered to users of version 20H2, it will be so for the last time! Indeed, version 20H2 is officially no longer supported since May 10, 2022. Microsoft therefore recommends that users upgrade to a more recent version to continue receiving future cumulative updates:

Windows 10, version 20H2 ends service today, May 10, 2022, for devices running Home, Pro, Pro Education, and Pro for Workstations editions. After May 10, 2022, these devices will no longer receive monthly security and quality updates that contain protection against the latest security threats. To continue receiving security and quality updates, Microsoft recommends updating to the latest version of Windows 10 or Windows 11.

Theoretically, you are unlikely to still be using Windows 10 version 20H2 since Microsoft automatically offers to upgrade the PC to a later version as the end-of-life date approaches. To be sure, follow the link to find out which version of Windows you are using on your PC.
