After releasing the software to testers last month in order to ensure its stability, Microsoft today officially began rolling out the May 2019 update for Windows 10 to everyone. The company made the announcement in a blog post which detailed its efforts to ensure the update experience this time around would be more pleasant.
In early April, we announced enhancements to the Windows update process to improve the user experience with more control, transparency, and the initial availability of the Windows 10 May 2019 Update through the Windows Insider Program’s Release Preview ring to focus on and improve quality. Based on positive data and the feedback we’ve seen from this longer preview phase; I’m pleased today to share that we are beginning to make the Windows 10 May Update available. We will be taking a measured and throttled approach, allowing us to study device health data as we increase availability via Windows Update. This post will provide details on how you can get the May 2019 Update, including update options. I’ll also cover how commercial organizations can begin targeted deployments and offer insight into how we’re increasing transparency with the full launch of the new Windows health dashboard.
The May 2019 update has a few new features in store for Windows users. There’s an all-new light theme for the OS, better security, a new way to run untrusted .exe files, support for Kaomoji, and more. Cortana has also been separated from Windows search, giving you easier access to your files over some arbitrary web search. You can install it by going to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update.
