Microsoft has released the expected Windows 10 November 2019 Update, which is already beginning to reach users.
On this occasion, the November 2019 update of Windows 10 is not as critical (and hopefully not as problematic) as last May’s, because although it introduces improvements and new features that we are going to show, it is mainly intended to correct bugs from the previous update while improving system stability, in a way it resembles more to the classic Service Pack that were launched for the previous versions of Windows.
Windows 10 November 2019 Update can now be downloaded on PCs with Windows 10. Just type Search for update in the Windows search engine, or enter the system configuration and access Windows Update. When looking for new updates should appear version 1909, which is the numbering that has Windows 10 November 2019 Update, as we see in this screenshot:
Keep in mind that Microsoft distributes this update progressively, so it may take a few hours or a couple of days for your computer to detect it.
Another option is to access the Windows 10 download site, where Microsoft hangs the updates in a downloadable format. But at the moment, the May one still appears.
Once you have the November Windows 10 update installed on your system, you will be able to access the following new features that we have compiled below.
