Following Microsoft’s recent release of the Release Preview ring for the Windows Insider project, Windows 10 May 2020 Update (or version 2004) is about to be released,media reported. In other words, the launch of the production equipment is expected to begin in the next few weeks, and it is understood that the process will be phased in, meaning that not every user will be able to receive updates at the same time.
May 2020 Update will be a massive update, and a new feature of this update is the Network Status page for settings applications.
If you’re a long-term user of Windows 10, you’ll probably know that Microsoft has been trying to replace the dashboard with a new setup application, technically migrating all features to the latter to provide a complete, modern experience for every user.
And the upcoming May 2020 Update not only continues this approach but also improves in a number of key areas, one of which is the Web Status page.
First there will be a completely new view of the active connection, with all active network connections, wired wireless now displayed on the same screen. Other data shown here includes connection times, data usage, and options to access property and data usage information on the same screen.
“We now display all the available connection interfaces on the Status page, so you can quickly see the contents of the connection and view and change the properties as needed. If you have multiple connections, only one at a time will be used for internet connections, and that connection will still appear in the status map at the top of the page,” Microsoft explained.
The data usage section is handy for those trying to better manage their Internet connection, especially when they have limited use.
Given that managing network connectivity is critical for many users, Microsoft’s improvements to the settings page are definitely a good thing. Microsoft says all of these improvements are based on user feedback, which is why it can better manage available networks by adding new options. To be honest, this has always been a popular feature, although it was previously much easier to get information such as data usage per network through third-party applications.
Users who now want to try May 2020 Update can sign up for the Windows Insider project and download the available version in the Release Preview ring.
