New York (The Verge) — Windows 10 October 2020 Update is now available with an updated Start menu and more theverge.com/2020/10/20/215….
Microsoft is releasing its latest Windows 10 October 2020 Update. It includes a refreshed Start menu, new Alt Tab interface, and the bundling of the Chromium-powered Edge browser.
Microsoft’s second significant change is how Alt Tab works. Traditionally, you use Alt Tab to cycle through desktop apps that are open in Windows, but the list now includes all open tabs in Microsoft Edge. Microsoft is allowing Windows 10 users to switch back to the classic Alt-Tab experience, though.
The final important addition is related to PC gaming. Microsoft has never made it easy to set up and control monitor refresh rates in Windows, leading to many forgetting to enable 144Hz or higher modes on their monitors. You can now switch to higher refresh rates directly within the Windows 10 settings panel (Settings > System > Display, Advanced display settings). It’s better than jumping into a legacy interface buried in settings or having to control this from AMD or Nvidia’s apps. — Tom Warren/@verge
