to clarify a bit for argument sake, consider 2004 as 20H1.

Hi,

A more efficient way is using touch cursor to inspect the screen controls.

A huge clarification: there is no 20H1.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi, Tom.

1. Open Settings, Windows key plus I.

2. TAB to the categories list, and select Update and Security, press ENTER.

3. TAB to the list of categories, and select Windows Update, press ENTER.

4. TAB past the Check for Updates button, and see if there is a Download
and Install link.

5. If there is a Download and Install link, read your screen with JAWS
key plus B, and listen to see if the update is described as a Feature
Update.

6. If it is a Feature Update, it will probably be version 20H1 or 20H2.

7. Even if it turns out to be 20H1, after you install it, you will
probably soon get the update for 20H2.

Bill:

How exactly do I find this out?

Yesterday, I got some sort of an update to Windows version 1909, so I am
assuming auto-updates is already turned on.

I guess I’m just thinking that Windows 10 version 2004 will come to my
computer in time.

Hi, Tom. If you have an update in your windows updates that says
download and install, that is the 20H2 update, waiting for you to
download and install it.

Mike:

It’s interesting.

This Windows 10 computer is still back on Windows version 1909.

I have thought about forcing the update, but have decided to just let it
happen when it will.

If this is unwise, I hope someone will let me know.

I’m working based on the old addage:  “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!”.

Richard,

Don't force the issue.  Windows will send you the update in due time.  I
don't know what criteria they use as to who and what computers get the
updates but, if you haven't received the, 20H2, update yet Microsoft is
finding a reason to not send you the update and updating prematurely
could cause adverse reactions to your operating system or in other
words,be a total pain in the ass!


Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Thanks Mike,

I guess it ain’t my turn yet as checking for updates doesn’t give me
anything different.

Richard,

You're running an older version.  The latest is, 20H2, not 2004, and
it's OS version 19042.685.  This newer 20H2 version is using 19042 where
the older 2004 versions are at 19041.


Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

I have 2004 OS build 1941.685, it was 1941.630.

Are you sure about the 1942 part of that number?

Brian, Here’s what I found:

It didn’t say the update was or was not successful. I assume it was.

Am I the only one who got this one?

And if things don't settle down, it will be important to know what
update(s) were applied.  Presuming this is Windows 10, you can determine
that in Settings, Update & Security, Windows Update Pane, using the View
Update History button.  The most likely pertinent candidates are either
under Feature Updates (less likely, but possible) or Quality Updates.
The "Successfully installed on" line will give you the respective dates.
