Windows 10 version 2004, May 2020 Update, is now rolling out to compatible devices, and if your computer hasn’t received the update through Windows Update, it’s also possible to force the new version using the “Update Assistant” tool.
On Windows 10, the “Update Assistant” is a tool designed to download feature updates a device isn’t getting the new version for unknown reasons, but it’s compatible with the new release. The tool works similar to the Media Creation Tool with the only difference that you can only perform an in-place upgrade.
