Windows 10 Sun Valley ’21H2′ update: What we know so far – BleepingComputer

Windows 10

With the upcoming Windows 10 21H1 feature update being a minor release with few improvements, Microsoft will likely include all of the new features they have introduced in Insider builds in Windows 10 21H2.

Microsoft plans to release Windows 10 21H2 in the fall of 2021 after Windows 10 21H1 is released in the spring and Windows 10X afterward.

Codenamed “Sun Valley.” Windows 10 21H2 will be a full-featured update that includes numerous new features and improvements for the Start Menu, Taskbar, Action Center, and more, which we have outlined below.

New DNS over HTTPS (DoH) feature

Since Windows 10 version 21H1 will be a minor release, native support for DNS over HTTPS (DoH) will likely be introduced with Windows 10 Sun Valley update.

DNS over HTTPS (DoH) is a new feature that will allow DNS resolution over encrypted HTTPS connections, and it aims to protect your browsing privacy from outsiders.

“If you haven’t been waiting for it, and are wondering what DoH is all about, then be aware this feature will change how your device connects to the Internet and is in an early testing stage so only proceed if you’re sure you’re ready,” Microsoft noted in a blog post published last year.

You can configure DoH directly in the Settings app. To configure DoH for ethernet connections, follow these steps:

  1. Open Settings > Network & Internet > Status.
  2. Click Properties.
  3. Select Edit IP assignment or Edit DNS server assignment.
