Windows 10 build 19541 releases with new changes

Devices in the Fast ring are now getting Windows 10 build 19541, which includes Task Manager and taskbar improvements.

As the first preview of 2020, Microsoft is now rolling out Windows 10 build 19541 for devices enrolled in the Fast ring of the Windows Insider Program. This is the second preview as part of the 20H2 development, but because updates available through the Fast ring are no longer tied to a specific feature update release, it’s unclear if these improvements will be available in the next major release.

Windows 10 build 19541, according to the company, updates the Task Manager Details tab to include a column to show the architecture for each process.

In addition, the notification area in the taskbar now includes a new icon when an app is using your location, and there are several fixes for the Settings app, Search, Task Manager, and Narrator.

Although there are no ISO files for Windows 10 build 19541, the update is available immediately through the Fast ring. This preview build will download and install automatically on your device, but you can always force the update from Settings > Update & security > Windows Update, and clicking the Check for updates button.
