        Per today’s Newsletter, Susan Bradley recommends Version 2004
        All clear for 2004

        If you are currently on Version 1909, or even 1903, I’ll urge you to plan on updating to at least 2004. To ensure that you only get offered 2004 and nothing but 2004, Windows 10 Home won’t cut it. You’ll need to be on Windows 10 Professional.

        Now you’ll want to use the Targetreleaseversion setting in order to set the specific feature release version to 2004.

        To enable this setting, click in the Windows 10 search box, type in group policy, and look for the option “Edit group policy.” In the upper-left corner, look for Local Computer Policy. Click on Administrative Templates, then on Windows Components. Scroll all the way down to the bottom and find the Windows Update folder. Click to expand Windows Update. Click on the folder Windows Update for Business. Click on “Select the target Feature Update version.” In the group policy box, enter the feature version name — for example, if you want to ensure your machine stays on 2004, enter 2004.

        In addition to the above, could someone (PKCano and members) advise those of us on 1909 what the Feature Update Deferral days number would be to put in Windows Updater Advanced options setting to trigger download of version 2004.

        Also pls include a listing of the major changes that 1909 users will face when moving to version 2004, such as Windows Updater Advanced Option setting going away and what to do, and wasn’t Device Manager going to change regarding losing driver updating?  Changes to make after installing 2004 and before re-connecting to the internet.

        Commentary on these as well as any others would be very helpful.

        Windows 10 Pro x64 v1909 and Windows 7 Pro SP1 x64 (RIP)
