Microsoft has started rolling out the latest Windows 10 feature update (sort of!) for all the supported devices out there.
As we already know, Windows 10 November 2019 Update (1909), aka 19H2, comes loaded with performance improvements and bug fixes.
Earlier this year, the company reworked its Windows Update plans. Now, we’ll get to see only one major feature update in the spring, which will be complemented by a minor one released during the fall.
But in terms of features, users don’t get much other than a handful number of changes. For instance, now you can create new events directly from the Calendar flyout menu in the Taskbar.
There is a new “Manage Notifications” option at the top of the Action Center that takes the user directly to the “Notifications & actions” page in the Settings app.
Your files stored on OneDrive will now show up when you look for something using the search bar in the File Explorer. That’s because the search feature is now fueled by Windows Search.
Windows 10 1909 also lets you wake up third-party voice assistants, including Amazon Alexa, from the lock screen itself. Furthermore, when you hover your mouse over the Start Menu navigation pane, it expands.
Over the years, getting Windows Updates installed on your computer has become buttery smooth — so is the case with this one. You can download Windows 10 November Update by visiting Settings > Update and Security > Windows Update.
Here, click on “Check for updates” options, and the option to install Windows 10 November Update will show up after a few moments. Next, click on “Download and Install Now” and you’re good to go.
Some users may not see the Windows 10 1909 update option right away. That’s because the rollout is happening gradually, and Microsoft is holding the update for devices it thinks aren’t fully compatible yet.
It’s about time that we see new bugs start haunting the users after they install the feature update. A couple of times, Microsoft even had to pull back the updates to do the repair work.
However, the fact that Windows 10 November 2019 Update is itself a performance improvement update makes us assume that nothing wrong would happen this time (hopefully!).
