What's new in the Windows 10 May 2019 Update?

05 April, 2019, 10:56 | Author: Leah Owens
  • The update is shipped to Windows 10 version 1809 devices

The active hours feature arrived with the Anniversary Update in 2016, and you were supposed to configure it manually.

Beyond that change, the May 2019 update will allow users to push back feature updates until it reaches end-of-life. As it is now, though, Game Bar's video recording settings, which are buried in an unintuitive Windows menu, are also woefully limited compared to GeForce Experience.

Microsoft also seems to recognize that people might not be ready to trust the Windows 10 May 2019 Update despite these precautions.

Microsoft has been really pushing its twice-annual feature updates to ensure most consumers are on the very latest version of Windows 10. Using machine learning and feedback from testers, the update will be made available in waves depending on whether your Windows 10 PC and install is compatible.

You've had the option to pick a dark theme for a while now in Windows 10, but now there is an equivalent light theme that changes the black taskbar to, well, a lighter colour. Microsoft says it will be available by late May, as long as you're running Windows 10 version 1803 or 1809. So far, Microsoft has typically supported each major feature update for 18 months.

Windows 7 had remained the most popular computer operating system in the world until Windows 10 surpassed it in December past year. Let us know in the comments.

Active Hours, a feature created to block automatic restarts by Windows Update may adjust the time range based on device usage patterns.

If your system is eligible to update, it should begin downloading and installing. For instance, in 2018, we got the Windows 10 April 2018 Update and the Windows 10 October 2018 Update. Those issues - and any others found, or reported by users - will be reflected on a new Windows 10 update public dashboard, making clear the problems that may have been encountered and what's being done to address them. It will also make it easier to find content-blog posts, updates, etc. -related to a given update. It also shouldn't be unwelcome-who isn't willing to wait one month for an update that should, in theory, be more stable?

While the Windows as a Service (WaaS) experiment has been a rocky endeavor for some, the growing pains appear to be pushing the Windows team in a direction that better supports is most casual and rabid user base. New features include a Sandbox mode for Windows 10 Pro and Enterprise users, a new light mode that looks clean and modern, improvements to Start, Action Center, and the UI.
