Windows 10 gets a preview of the next Patch Tuesday update. You can download it manually from the Windows Update settings.
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.
