Windows 10 receives the first Patch Tuesday of 2023 for versions 22H2, 21H2, 21H1, and 20H2, and here's all you need to know.
Windows 10 21H1, “May 2021 Update” will be the eleventh major update released on May 18, 2021.
Unlike previous releases, this will be a minor update that will only include a small set of features, changes, and improvements to complement the work done on versions 2004 and 20H2.
Also, since this will be a small release, the update will install quickly as an enablement package like a cumulative update without the need for reinstallation.
Starting February 17, 2021, version 21H1 is already available for testing through the Beta Channel of the Windows Insider Program.
