    Is this an optional feature. Does it mean that it is installing the feature update on my computer? I'm not on 20H2. Does that supersede 1900?

    :)

    Update History is not showing v.20H2

    Hi Dominic

    I am Dave, an Independent Advisor, I will help you with this . . .

    This is normal behavior in Windows 10, typically when you install a Feature Update like 20h2, the update history is wiped, this is to prevent the user from trying to uninstall an update that was prior to the Feature Update, which would de-stabilize Windows
    10, the list should start building again, when some updates are applied to version 20h2 . . .

  3. Update 20h2

    Hi Wicki,

    20H2 should not be installed right-away on your device - MS said the rollout is only to a fraction of users and would be labeled as an optional update initially. Are you enrolled in WIP?

    You may uninstall 20H2 using the steps below:

    20H2 update via update assistant not working for me

    Hi Lamia,

    I am Sumit, an Independent Advisor and a 3 year Windows Insider MVP here to help.

    This is likely because you are using Windows 10 Pro for workstations. As you have the 2004 release, I suggest using the enablement package to download 20H2 which is smaller in size - see method 4 here:
