IT improvements in May 2020 Update
There’s not much new for IT in this new version of Windows 10. Enterprises can take advantages of many of the features listed above, just like individual consumers can. That said, system administrators have a handful of new additions to look forward to.
For starters, businesses can now take advantage of Windows Hello biometric logins rather than passwords, by setting it up as the default on enterprise devices.
In addition, installing and setting up Windows for others has been made easier thanks to new controls that have been added to Dynamic Update. This results in less downtime during installation for users, streamlining system management.
There’s a new set of Deployment Image Servicing (DISM) commands and APIs that have been added to the reserved storage feature. This allows IT to configure a certain amount of storage on each device specifically for installing Windows, so that users don’t have to reserve this extra space.
Windows Setup now also provides additional diagnostic information to troubleshoot update failures.
Businesses can take advantage of the option to recover Windows 10 by downloading the necessary files from the cloud, resulting in increased reliability and a faster recovery.
Enterprises now also have better options for network throttling, where IT administrators can optimize the foreground and background throttling.
Installing MSIX apps from outside the Microsoft Store does no longer requires the sideloading apps option to be enabled.
A variety of new commands have been given to PowerShell for Delivery Optimization, a feature that reduces bandwidth consumption by sharing the work of downloading update and upgrade packages among multiple devices in business deployments.
The PowerShell Integrated Script Editor (ISE) is now a feature on demand. It remains installed by default, but can be managed.
