Windows 1903 is coming

Windows 1903 is coming

The May 2019 release of Windows update 1903 includes some new features. It promises to have more control of how and when updates will be installed on Home editions of Windows 10 unlike before. You will be able to pause updates for up to 35 days and you will no longer automatically be pushed into a feature update just because one exists.

The update includes a neat function that "reserves storage" to help improve the installation success rate, especially on machines with limited storage by allocating 7 GB of storage specifically for updates.

There is a new light desktop theme theme, this allows the user interface to appear white. The default Windows 10 wallpaper has even been tweaked to aid the light theme. There are updates to a number of default apps such as snipping tool, paint.

Past feature updates have not rolled out as smoothly as Microsoft have wanted. This time round they have tested the update for longer and even opened up a online dashboard so we can see the issues that arise from any possible update failures.

If you want the Windows 10 May 2019 Update, get it directly from Windows Update by going to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update and checking for updates. 

Let us know if you experience any issues with the new update.
