New 20H1 Build Brings Virtual Desktops Renaming to All

Posted on September 6, 2019 by Paul Thurrott in Windows 10 with 12 Comments

Microsoft has released a new Windows 10 version 20H1 build to Fast ring Insiders that lets everyone test renamable virtual desktops.

“Today we’re releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18975 (20H1) to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring,” the Microsoft announcement notes.

Here’s what’s new in this build.

Rename virtual desktops. Yep, this was A/B tested before, so only some Insiders saw it. But now, the ability to rename virtual desktops is now available for all Insiders in the Fast ring.

Move the Cortana window. On with Cortana would the ability to move a window around on-screen be treated like news, but there you: Cortana is now a standalone app, and now you can move the app window around on-screen. The bad news? Yep. They’re A/B testing it. Because of course they are.

That’s about it, aside from some reliability improvements to the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL).
