        What about if you  wanted to update from 2004 or 1909? I presume it would be a full, tedious update.

        “Learn about Windows 10, version 21H1, the next feature update that will begin to be broadly available later in the first half of this calendar year. The update will have a scoped set of features improving security, remote access, and quality.”

          It does not contain Edge Chromium 🙂

            Thank you for that interesting observation abbodi86. So is a jump from 2004 to 21H1 possible that bypasses the default chredge injection as per 20H2 ???

            Only having IE11 without the old edge,(that gets removed across the versions in April) would be a nice option for 3rd party browser only and IE locked down.

            wishful thinking…

            This is confusing. Could you let us in on the joke please?

              If you upgrade from 2004 to 21H1, you don’t get Edge Chromium as part of the process (like 20H2)
              21H1 Enablement Package (KB5000736) don’t have it currently
              they may add it later, or they intend to leave that to the Cumulative Update, which is supposed to include Edge Chromium in April 2021 (for v1809 and later)

          “Microsoft has introduced a modern ‘Manage Disks and Volumes’ utility that has better integration with the Storage Spaces and Storage Settings. Microsoft says its new disk management tool has been rewritten and it allows you to view disk information, create and format volumes, and assign drive letters.”

          Given Microsoft’s past history with rewriting things, does this ring alarm-bells for anyone else? Create and Format Volumes – what could go wrong?

            Scary, last time I checked they had not fixed the problem with 2004 and mirrored disks that would get corrupted. Solution from MS was make them read only if they haven’t broke yet while we don’t fix the problem because our telemetry says not enough people use them (last part not from them obviously).

        Windows 10 21H1 officially announced, testing started with Insider in Beta channel

        I did this in Text tab – Any Way to JUST SHOW the URL and NOT the big block?
        21H1 Announced + Testing Starts —

        If you have either Windows 10, version 2004 or version 20H2 installed, you will get the enablement update as soon as 21H1 is released. Then the version is installed within minutes (no need to download a huge install image).

        On the other hand, for users coming from older Windows 10 versions before 2004, a complete feature update in gigabyte size will be downloaded and installed.

        W10 Pro 20H2 / Hm-Stdnt Ofce '16 C2R / HP Envy Desktop-Ethernet/ 12 GB / 256G SSD + 1 TB HDD / i5-8400 Coffee Lake/ GP=2 + FtrU=Semi-Annual + Feature Defer = 1 + QU=0

        This “enablement update” to turn on system features doesn’t make sense. If the features are already contained in the system image, why not enable them from the get-go? If the feature isn’t deemed ready for prime-time, what makes it “ready” for enablement later? Without a code update? If a security problem is discovered in those features, that code will have to be replaced in an update. At some stage, a download will have to occur. It looks like Microsoft is trying to gaslight users into upgrading.
