Releasing Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.2020.0 to the Beta Channel

Written By published January 26, 2021

Hello Windows Insiders,

Today, we are releasing Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.2020.0 to Windows Insiders in the Beta Channel. This update includes the following improvements:

  • We are improving the reliability of screen snipping experience, especially with apps that access the clipboard often.

Additionally, we are removing the capability to copy and paste a screen snip directly into a folder in File Explorer for now due to an issue discovered thanks to the feedback from Windows Insiders. We hope to re-enable this capability in a future update after we address this issue.

These Windows Feature Experience Pack updates are delivered to Insiders through Windows Update just like builds and cumulative updates are. Insiders in the Beta Channel can go to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update and check for updates to receive this Windows Feature Experience Pack update. Please note that in order to receive this update, Insiders in the Beta Channel will need to have 20H2 Build 19042.662 or higher installed. Insiders will need to reboot to enable the above-mentioned improvement and can check their Windows Feature Experience Pack version by going to Settings > System > About.

As a reminder – we are testing this new process out with Insiders to deliver new feature improvements to customers outside of major Windows 10 feature updates. Right now, we are starting out with a really scoped set of features and improvements. Over time, we hope to expand the scope and the frequency of releases in the future. Eventually, these Windows Feature Experience Pack updates will get folded into the already existing servicing process for Windows 10 and delivered to customers that way through Windows Update.
