  • Windows 10 May 2019 Update announced, and major update changes

In response, Microsoft has been taking steps to make feature updates and monthly cumulative updates are less disruptive for users.

The current Active Hours feature in Windows 10, which permits users to declare when they don't want to get an update, will have a new option to automatically adjust those hours based on the user's "device-specific usage patterns". However, those automatic updates often change file associations, break apps, and alter basic system features without warning. For instance, in 2018, we got the Windows 10 April 2018 Update and the Windows 10 October 2018 Update.

All Windows 10 users, including Home edition users, will be able to pause an update for up to 35 days (a pause action is in effect for seven days, but it can be renewed five times consecutively). The first to be notified of the Windows updates will be those for whom Windows data suggests there will be a highest likelihood of an issue-free update. This new "download and install" option will also be available for our most popular versions of Windows 10, versions 1803 and 1809, by late May. One of those platforms is Windows 10, and the beta for the Game bar overlay has started testing a number of new features, including Spotify, chatting with friends, creating memes, and a customisable user interface.The Game bar overlay is a feature built into Windows 10 that works with any PC game.

The May 2019 update will be available next week in Release Preview.

Microsoft intends Windows updates to make the operating system more powerful and easier to use.

"We will begin releasing 19H2 bits to Insiders later this spring and will talk more about what that will look like in the near future", Microsoft says. By default, this is set at 8 am to 5 pm.

This test is expected to take about a month and then be released to users in late May. In essence, Microsoft is promising to be a better landlord for its Windows 10 tenants.

The May 2019 Update is going to spend "increased time" lurking in Release Preview, and Microsoft intends to chow down on its own dog food with employees encouraged to put the code on their own personal devices. The update, previously codenamed 19H1, is a lightweight update in terms of forward-facing features that consumers will notice. Below we have outlined some of the more notable features coming out in the update. By doing things this way, instead of having two updates per year forced onto your machine, you can install one every year and a half.
