A Redesigned Network Status Page in the Newest 20H1 Test Build

On August 7, Microsoft Windows 10 rolled out another new Fast Ring test build for its Windows 10 20H1 feature update.

Like most recent 20H1 test builds, this build includes several relatively minor feature updates, including network status page changes and support for new Cortana applications as well as the updated Calculator app.

The test build, No. 18956, includes a redesigned Network Status page with a new view of active connections and the ability to directly view how much data the network is using from the page.

Microsoft is rolling out its recently announced notification settings changes to all of the Fast Ring as of this build. More Fast Ring testers will also try to use the standalone Cortana application updated in this release. For Fast Ring testers, the expected updates to the calculator will be launched in the next few days, and the calculator will be enabled in always-on-top mode.
