Software giant Microsoft has finally started rolling out the Windows 10 May 2019 update to everyone. The Windows 10 May 2019 update is the next major build of Windows 10 and it is currently being rolled out in a phased manner and will soon reach all the people across the globe. The new update comes with a number of new features such as giving users enhanced control over the installation of updates, a dedicated sandbox that can be used for testing apps and more.
We should mention that Windows 10 May 2019 update rollout is accompanied by the release of Windows health dashboard that lets users find out about the status of updates, bugs that are associated with them and more. In addition to this, you should know that you need to have a minimum of 32GBof storage on your system for both the versions of the update (32-bit and 64 bit). You would also have to make sure that there isn’t any SD card or a USB drive plugged into the PC or laptop, because in such a case, the update would not be installed.
It is also worth adding that the update had arrived on the Windows Insider Release Preview Ring and Microsoft’s Media Creation tool before it finally became available for everyone today via a stable update. Microsoft had promised that it will be releasing the stable update in May itself and it kept its word.
Coming to the changes that have been introduced by the update, a new delivery mechanism has been added that gives users more control over when they should install an update. With the new update, users will also be able to pause all update activity for 35 days and instead go for installing updates manually. Speaking of Windows Health dashboard, it will enable users to check the status of updates and understand what are the potential issues that are associated with it.
The integrated Cortana search bar will also be separated and you will now be able to find it as a separate Cortana button and a dedicated search bar. We should mention that this change is being tested since the beginning of 2019.
Windows Sandbox is another very key change that has been added. It is basically a virtualisation feature that will allow users to test programs in an isolated environment so that it can be of no harm in the native system. The software giant has announced that the update will be rolled out in a phased manner. You can check for the Windows 10 May 2019 update on your PC by going to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update > Check for updates.
