Usually, Microsoft delivers the feature upgrades twice a year but security patches are released very often, but things might change as Microsoft plans to release new Windows 10 feature updates frequently.
Microsoft is not giving Windows a major update, but Microsoft has started testing its Windows Feature Experience Packs in its Windows Insider program.
The first experience pack was released a month ago, and now the beta program subscribers have been provided with the second experience pack.
Brandon LeBlank from Microsoft explains:
“We are testing this new process out with Insiders to deliver new feature improvements to customers outside of major Windows 10 feature updates. Right now, we are starting out with a really scoped set of features and improvements. Over time, we hope to expand the scope and the frequency of releases in the future”
The main goal is to properly integrate these experience packs into Windows 10 and make them reach the end-user through updates. This will allow Microsoft to release updates frequently.
With regards to the current experience pack, LeBlank states that this pack improves user experience with the screen snipping feature, especially with the apps that frequently access the clipboard. The pack has also removed the feature to copy and paste a snipped directly into a file due to some issue discovered but will be added back soon.
“These Windows Feature Experience Pack updates are delivered to Insiders through Windows Update just like builds, and cumulative updates are. Insiders in the Beta Channel can go to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update and check for updates to receive this Windows Feature Experience Pack update”
In case you want to receive these Experience packs, you should have the Windows 20H2 build 19042.662 or higher installed. A reboot is also required after installing the pack.
