Technically it’s the end of May. So it’s no surprise that Microsoft will begin launching the Major May Update, the 1903 update.
From today, mainstream consumers and business users who want to download and install the update manually can do it from May 21st.
Updating brings some new features. Microsoft gives users more control over their own updates.
Users can stop updating for 35 days in a row. And thanks to a new “Download and Install Now” option, users will not be forced to update automatically.
Those who do not select this option will post install updates until their Windows 10 copy expires.
This is done in order to improve successful installations of upgrades on limited computers by allocating 7GB of space specifically for this purpose.
May update features a feature called Windows Sandbox where Pro, Enterprise, and Education users can open potentially dangerous applications in isolation.
Also a white theme of the operating system is added. Pre-Installed applications installed can be removed. The Start menu has become simpler.
Virtual Assistant Cortana is detached from the search function that Microsoft has completely remodeled.
Microsoft said at the beginning of April that the company would change the way it sends such major updates to improve their quality and avoid catastrophe like that of October. The company will now send these updates for a longer period of time.
Company officials said business customers could start up installations at the end of May. Today is the 21st of May. It’s the date Microsoft will start counting down the 18-month period of service for Windows 10 1903.
Microsoft has also not provided details when 19H2 / Fall 2019 updates will begin shipping. Usually insiders should have access to them right now.
