After more than a year of public testing, Microsoft is now beginning to roll out the latest version of Microsoft Edge, the company’s new web browser, to users of the last four feature updates of Windows 10.
Earlier this month Microsoft made the Windows 10 May 2019 Update, the seventh overall feature update for their flagship operating system, available to the general public. Although it is in a very controlled roll out, there are ways to go ahead and get the update on your system instead of waiting for it to arrive.
Following a long holiday weekend here in the United States, we catch you up on all the details for the general availability of the Windows 10 May 2019 Update, aka Version 1903, which began last week. Included among those details are key blog posts you will need as you prepare for its arrival whether you are on the consumer or business front. In addition, I catch us up once again on where Windows Insider builds are and how I believe they will play out over the next weeks and months now that the May 2019 Update has begun its roll out. I share some of the interesting news from last week’s SharePoint Conference plus hardware announcements from COMPUTEX 2019 that began in Taiwan over this past weekend. Of course, you will find our normal mix of information and headlines from apps, services, gaming, social media, and the latest tidbits around rockets and space.
It seems that the next feature update to Windows 10, the May 2019 Update, will not only allow Windows Update to be paused seven days at a time for up to 35 days but users will be able to select any timeframe within the next 35 days to pause updates on their device for that specific timeframe – up to a maximum of 35 days.
