Windows 10 Update to Focus on Remote Work

The next major update to Windows 10, version 21H1, will be delivered in the first half of 2021 and will focus on improving remote work scenarios, The Verge has reported.

“Windows 10, version 21H1 will have a scoped set of features improving security, remote access and quality,” wrote John Cable in Windows Blog. Cable is Microsoft’s head of Windows Servicing and Delivery. “The features we are releasing in this update are focused on the core experiences that customers have told us they’re relying on most right now.”

The improvements will include:

  • Windows Hello multicamera support to set the default as the external camera when both external and internal Windows Hello cameras are present.
  • Windows Defender Application Guard performance improvements including optimizing document opening scenario times.
  • Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) Group Policy Service (GPSVC) updating performance improvement to support remote work scenarios.

Microsoft’s other improvements for this 21H1 version are designed for IT admins to improve support for remote working. This includes improving document opening times for Microsoft’s built-in anti-virus software, and performance improvements for the management and configuration side of Windows.
