Microsoft announces the availability of Windows 10 October 2020 Update. The rollout has started and your PC will likely receive it over the next couple of weeks (or months). Alternatively, if you're very brave, you can force the update via the Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update menu in Windows 10.

It's a relatively minor update, a list of the main changes can be found at the Windows Blog. Among other things, there's new Edge stuff like an integration of web tabs in Alt + Tab. The Start Menu and the Taskbar have also been refreshed with a more streamlined, less colorful design.
A refreshing Start. The Start menu has a more streamlined design. A uniform, partially transparent background to the tiles creates a beautiful stage for the redesigned app icons like Calculator, Mail and Calendar. This refined Start design looks great in both dark and light themes, but if you’re looking for a splash of color, first make sure to turn on Windows dark theme and then toggle “Show accent color on the following surfaces” for “Start, taskbar, and action center” under Settings > Personalization > Color to elegantly apply your accent color to the Start frame and tiles.
