    Windows 10 May 2019 Update: The best nifty improvements


    Windows 10 May 2019 Update comes with a long list of improvements and while there aren’t too many new features, there’s something for everyone. Windows 10 May 2019 Update has a lot more to offer than Windows Sandbox, Light Theme and improved Windows Update controls.

    Windows 10 version 1903 has fewer major new features than version 1809, but you’ll notice several nifty improvements. Here are the ones you’ll likely want to upgrade for.

    Preferred brightness remains the same


    Windows 10 May 2019 Update: The best nifty improvements Brightness-settings.jpg

    In older versions of Windows, the system retained two different display brightness when the device was on battery mode and plugged in. Windows 10 May 2019 Update sets just one common setting for both scenarios.

    The brightness simply doesn’t change when you unplug your laptop.

    File Explorer improvements


    Windows 10 May 2019 Update: The best nifty improvements File-Explorer-icon.jpg

    Microsoft is also updating the File Explorer icon, so it looks better with the new light theme. You’ll notice that File Explorer icon now has darker shades of same colours and it looks somewhat more elegant.

    Windows 10 May 2019 Update: The best nifty improvements Downloads-folder-sorting.jpg

    Windows 10 version 1903 also updates the default downloads folder sorting. Normally, users don’t change the name of the file before downloading it and the default names aren’t always very memorable. As a result, the recently downloaded file gets lost in the downloads folder.

    Microsoft is updating File Explorer to show the most recently downloaded files at the top of the list irrespective of the file name. It is worth noting that Microsoft won’t change the sorting if you’ve already modified the current sorting from the default in any way.

    Task Manager default tab


    Windows 10 May 2019 Update: The best nifty improvements Task-Manager-default-tab.jpg

    You can now set your prefered tab in Task Manager. At the moment, when you launch Task Manager, it opens the processes tab. In May 2019 Update, you can set your prefered tab and when you launch Task Manager again, it will now jump directly to the prefered tab.

    Improved RAW image format support


    Windows 10 May 2019 Update: The best nifty improvements Raw-Image-Extension.jpg

    Some smartphone and camera produce raw image files and latest Windows update dramatically improves native raw file format support in Windows 10. To improve raw support in Windows 10, users are also required to download the Raw Image Extension (beta) package from the Microsoft Store.

    After installing the update and extension, you’ll be able to view image thumbnails and camera metadata of raw files right in File Explorer.

    (It is unclear whether RAW image support will make it into the final version of Windows 10 May 2019 Update).

    Reset this PC now has a better UI


    Windows 10 May 2019 Update: The best nifty improvements Reset-PC-settings.jpg

    Microsoft is also revamping the UI for Reset this PC wizard which is part of Settings > Update & Security Recovery. The changes are designed to deliver a more consistent experience across devices and requires fewer clicks to complete the process.

    Improving the Action Center experience


    Windows 10 May 2019 Update: The best nifty improvements Action-Center.jpg

    Action Center is finally getting the highly-anticipated brightness slider instead of a button. You can now customize the brightness directly from the Action Center by adjusting the slider.

    You can now also customize your Quick actions from the Action Center itself. As shown in the screenshot below, you have to right-click on any action to remove or swap it with something else. You don’t have to visit the Settings page to customize Action Center anymore.

    Windows 10 May 2019 Update: The best nifty improvements Customize-Action-Center.jpg

    High DPI improvements


    Microsoft has released multiple updates to improve the High DPI problems for Win32 (desktop) app.

    Microsoft recently added a feature to Windows 10 that allowed users to manually fix the scaling and blurry apps issues. In the previous version of Windows, this feature was disabled by default, but in May 2019 Update, Microsoft is enabling the setting by default.

    Windows 10 May 2019 Update: The best nifty improvements Scaling-settings.jpg

    Windows can now automatically address some of your scaling problems with certain Win32 applications and games. It also reduces the number of times you see that “Fix blurry apps” notification.

    Focus Assist is now smarter


    Notifications and other distractions can destroy productivity and entertainment. On Windows, notifications slide in from the side of the screen and it is distractive.

    Focus Assist is Microsoft’s solution to deal with the heavy amount of notifications when playing games.

    Windows 10 May 2019 Update: The best nifty improvements Focus-Assist.jpg

    Until now you’ve had to manually toggle it on and off to use Focus Assist, but May 2019 Update enables it automatically when the user is playing a full-screen game or watching any content in full-screen mode.

    Time servers


    Windows 10 May 2019 Update: The best nifty improvements Time-Zone.jpg

    It’s annoying when the clock in Windows refuses to adjust itself and display the wrong time.

    Microsoft is finally addressing this problem and now there’s a button to sync the PC with a time server manually.

    Windows 10 May 2019 Update also improves the overall performance in two ways – robust fixes for Spectre vulnerabilities and a separate process for Start menu.

    Windows 10 version 1903 is scheduled to go live in late May 2019.

    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: The best nifty improvements :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.
