While the most exciting stuff in the Windows world is happening around Windows 11, Microsoft is committed to supporting users on Windows 10. According to Microsoft, more than 1.3 billion monthly active devices are running Windows 10. Due to peculiar Windows 11 hardware requirements, not all Windows 10 users will get a chance to update to the next version of Windows. That means Microsoft needs to continue providing support in form of regular updates and patches for Windows 10. On its official Windows Blog, Microsoft announced the next feature update for Windows 10, 21H2.
