The Windows Defender antivirus will change next year, at least in terms of image. Testers of Windows 10 noticed that in the latest build of 20H1 version prepared for spring, program-related folders have different names. This is no longer Windows, but Microsoft Defender.
It is theoretically possible that the change will affect only the name. In practice, however, Defender is one of the more dynamically developed system tools, so in the spring we will probably see more changes in this area. It is possible that the name change is dictated by a series of other significant modifications in the program and the desire to cut off from “Windows Defender” with the functionality we know, including from today’s Windows 10.
Windows 10 version 20H1 will also offer other news. Earlier, for example, we paid attention to the hidden search engine on the lock screen, which is the first element extending the capabilities of this screen. A little later it also turned out that from the level of the lock screen, the system will be able to operate by voice thanks to the Amazon Alexa assistant. In this case, however, the novelty is expected to hit the system this fall.
On the other hand, it is worth noting that some new products are starting to appear in Windows regardless of the “big updates” prepared twice a year. This approach was first announced by Microsoft in 2017, and we had the example of this week, when one of the reddit users drew attention to the new interface of the Windows Ink workspace on their system with the May update installed.
