    Windows 10 May 2019 Update: Everything you need to know


    Microsoft has officially kicked off the rollout of Windows 10 May 2019 Update and many users have already upgraded to the new OS. Windows 10 May 2019 Update was actually finalized last month and Microsoft tested the update for another month to address all big issues.

    It’s important to understand that Microsoft hasn’t started the automatic rollout of Windows 10 May 2019 Update. The update is available for ‘seekers’ (advanced users) and you’ll be explicitly asked if you want to install it.

    Not everyone will receive the update today or this week. Microsoft apparently wants to push the update gradually as it will allow the company to discover potential issues before they hit a substantial number of devices.

    Installing Windows 10 May 2019 Update via Windows Update

    As mentioned, you’ll have to explicitly choose download and install the update option to see May 2019 Update on Windows Update page. It’s worth noting that you’ll find the new ‘Download and install’ option only after installing KB4497934 (Build 17763.529) or newer on October 2019 Update.

    Microsoft says that the option may not show up on all devices. It’s normal as Microsoft is throttling up this available and the option would show up on more devices after the company carefully monitors and analyzes the feedback.

    Once the option is available, you have to check for updates and finally click on ‘Download and install’. Once the download is complete and the update is ready to install, you’ll receive a notification reminding you to restart the PC.

    The update wouldn’t download and install automatically, this is part of Microsoft’s attempt to make Windows Update less surprising.

    Windows Update rollout changes


    The update is available for seekers and you can always delay it if you think your PC isn’t ready for a new adventure.

    Microsoft says that the download for May 2019 Update will automatically initiate if the device is outdated and approaching end of the service period. For example, users who are on April 2018 Update or older, will begin receiving the May 2019 Update automatically in June 2019.

    This approach certainly makes sense as it will ensure security updates and continued improvements.

    Update Assistant, Media Creation Tool and ISO


    If Windows 10 May 2019 Update isn’t yet available on Windows Update, you can install it through Media Creation Tool or ISO files.

    You can also use the Update Assistant app, but it may not work if you’ve incompatible drivers. Microsoft has already started blocking the May 2019 Update on devices with certain Intel drivers due to brightness adjustment problems.

    Media Creation Tool, on the other hand, is a wizard-based tool and you just have to follow a few steps to complete the upgrade. The tool will download the Windows 10 installation media, unpack the content and reboot the device to apply the update.

    Unlike Update Assistant, Media Creation Tool bypasses certain upgrade blocks. In some cases, forcing the update with the Media Creation Tool could lead to certain issues and driver compatibility problems.

    However, you can take a backup of important files and use the Media Creation Tool.

    You can also download and save the ISO images of Windows 10 May 2019 Update. You can use the ISO images to create your own installation media and upgrade the current system or multiple devices without the Media Creation Tool.

    Before trying out the update, make sure the PC has enough free space and it meets minimum system requirements.

    Office 2019

    Only supported on Win10. Sorry, 8.1 users, only 4 years old, gotta go.

    Microsoft Office 2019 will only work on Windows 10

    https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com...-to-office-and-windows-servicing-and-support/

    Spoiler Office 2019
    Last year at Ignite, we announced Office 2019 – the next perpetual version of Office that includes apps (including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook, and Skype for Business) and servers (including Exchange, SharePoint, and Skype for Business). Today we’re pleased to share the following updates:

    • Office 2019 will ship in H2 of 2018. Previews of the new apps and servers will start shipping in the second quarter of 2018.
    • Office 2019 apps will be supported on:
      • Any supported Windows 10 SAC release
      • Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2018
      • The next LTSC release of Windows Server
    • The Office 2019 client apps will be released with Click-to-Run installation technology only. We will not provide MSI as a deployment methodology for Office 2019 clients. We will continue to provide MSI for Office Server products.

    Microsoft Office 2019 Will Run on Windows 10, and Only Windows 10

    Windows 7 went out of mainstream support on Jan 15, 2015.
    Windows 8.1 went out of mainstream support on Jan 9, 2018.
    And I doubt anyone on Windows 8.1 would mind too much upgrading to Windows 10. I definitely would not *Big Grin Windows 10 May 2019 Update: Everything you need to know :D

    They are supporting only Windowses currently in mainstream support. For Windows 10, they seem to have moved the support model to the bi-annual updates being supported for 2 years and more recently 1.5 years.

    Has it been said if Office 2019 will actually work on Windows 7/8.1? Supported and actually working can be different things. Kind of like the "on supported hardware" comment above.

    Windows 10 May 2019 Update: Everything you need to know

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
