This week on Pureinfotech: Microsoft pushed the 23rd preview as part of the Windows 10 20H1 update to Insiders with a new networking status settings page, improvements for notifications, Calculator, and File Explorer. (You can now also download the Windows 10 build 18950 ISO file to perform a clean installation or in-place upgrade of the OS.)
In addition, the company released Windows 10 build 18362.10013 and build 18362.10012 as part of the 19H2 update coming later in the fall of 2019. However, build 18362.10013 is the only preview that comes with the new features enabled, including the ability to create calendar events from the taskbar, notification improvements as well as changes to improve battery life and multi-core processors.
A new preview of the Windows Terminal also became available this week with a bunch of changes, including with new settings, customization, accessibility, and more.
In case you missed it, you can also download the pick of the week theme: The Animal Kingdom to refresh your desktop.
