Windows 10: This Wednesday (20), Microsoft released another preview version of Windows 10. This time, the novelty is the compilation “19044.1319 (21H2)” of the operating system and is available to users who joined the Insider program , participants of the Launch Previews channel.
The new update seeks to fix a number of issues, security and reliability flaws in Windows 10, as well as add discrete features to complement the user experience — since the development priority is now the newly released Windows 11.
Those interested in staying on Windows 10 and who do not wish to join the aforementioned Microsoft testing program can wait for the official availability of the update, which should not take long considering its stage of development. Eligible participants can get the new build through Windows Update.
