Now it is official: Next major Windows 10 update will roll out in May Microsoft has announced that the next major Windows 10 feature update will be called Windows 10 May 2019 Update and as the name suggests, will start rolling out in next month.
The new feature update, known as version 1903 and codenamed "19H1" will be available in next week for those users who have signed up to be part of the Release Preview ring of Windows 10. Rest of us will see the update arriving sometime in May, depending on each user's geographical location and various other factors. As always, Microsoft tries to balance the roll out so that not all users will get the update at the same date.

Compared to previous feature updates, the May update will be very small one, at least for regular user. The update focuses mostly on improving existing Windows 10 features, the stability of the operating system and fine-tuning some OS elements.

Most visible changes will be the new "light theme", some improvements to the Start menu and the Action Center. For full list of changes, check this list.
