After months of testing, Microsoft finally releases the Windows 10 May 2019 update to the public, otherwise known as version 1903 or 19H1. The update is the first major software update for the Windows 10 operating system this year.
The most important aspect of the Windows 10 May 2019 Update is the improved control over update installations. Now, users can pause/defer Windows updates for up to 35 days, even if they are on Windows 10 Home Edition. People can choose to install when they are free, or wait to see if certain bugs have been fixed.
Other features, such as separating Cortana from the search bar and a whole-system light theme, are included in the update. If you are running on Windows 10 Professional, you can also try out the new virtualisation tool, called Windows Sandbox. It allows you to test out developing software in a safe environment.
Microsoft will be rolling out the update slowly to its large user base, in order to prevent encountering system errors and bugs like the previous release. However, you can still choose to install the Windows 10 May 2019 Update manually.
