Windows 10 version 1909, November 2019 Update, features walkthrough video

VIDEO: The Windows 10 November 2019 Update, version 1909, is releasing soon, and this hands-on video review dives deep into everything available in this new version.

The Windows 10 November 2019 Update, version 1909, is expected to arrive in the first weeks of November, and in this hands-on video review, you’ll learn all the new features and enhancements coming in the feature update.

Windows 10 version 1909, codenamed 19H2, is the eighth major release that Microsoft is making available for desktops, laptops, and tablets, and it’s a very small update that enhances the May 2019 Update (so, you can think of this feature update as a service pack). 

You can learn more about this update in this field guide.

Windows 10 version 1909 release date

The new version of Windows 10 is officially rolling out sometime in November, but it won’t be available for every device on day one. Instead, Microsoft is planning to rollout the update slowly starting with devices known to work with the new version, and then based on feedback and telemetry from the initial phase, it’ll expand to other computers.

However, the installation process will be different depending on the version currently running on your device. If you’re already running the Windows 10 May 2019 Update, version 1903, then the computer will receive the new version as a cumulative update through Windows Update, and the installation experience will be similar to those updates you get every month.

On the other hand, if your device has an older version (such as the October 2018 Update), then the process to upgrade will require the full reinstallation of Windows 10.

Although you can force the May 2019 Update using the Media Creation Tool, the recommended method to get the feature update is to wait until it’s automatically available through Windows Update.

Windows 10 November 2019 Update new features

The November 2019 Update is a small update that includes mostly fixes and internal improvements, as such there are not new big features. However, you’ll find some tweaks in the Settings app and Start menu, and you can now create calendar events from the taskbar.
