Microsoft is releasing a new build of Windows 10 to Insiders today. Redmond is releasing 20H1 build 18936 to Insiders in the Fast Ring, and it comes with some minor features.
With this build, Microsoft is making it possible for all Insiders to create a new event or reminder quickly from the clock and calendar flyout on the taskbar. The new flyout makes it really easy and quick for users to add quick reminders that aren’t necessarily big events. It also lets you set a time and location for an event now.

Microsoft is also introducing a new device-wide option that lets you enable passwordless sign in for all your Microsoft accounts on a device, letting you use Windows Hello, or a pin, instead of a password.
The company is also rolling out updated firmware for Insiders with Surface devices that expands the availability of the Your Phone app’s phone screen mirroring feature to more devices. With the latest firmware update, the feature is now available for Surface Laptop, Surface Laptop 2, Surface Pro 4, Surface Pro 5, Surface Pro 6, Surface Book, and Surface Book 2.
The update includes a number of other minor fixes, and a couple of known issues, so make sure to check out the full changelog here.
