Windows 10 New Update 2019:

The Windows 10 19H1 update name was recently finalized as “Windows 10 May 2019” and is expected to be officially released in late May 2019. Obviously, Microsoft does not want to repeat the Windows 10 October update (Version 1809), so it lengthens the update cycle to better handle various bugs and optimize background performance and stability. Before the official release, the foreign media Windows Lastest gave a comprehensive introduction to the upcoming feature update.

WindowsDevelopment cycle

Windows Insider project members have been getting Windows 10 May 2019 Update (version 1903, codenamed 19H1) updates since last year. If nothing else, they are expected to enter the Release Preview channel next week.The Release Preview channel is the last channel before the official release to global users, which means that Microsoft will officially release a new version of the test. To this end, the company has begun to focus part of its development focus on the next feature update, Windows 10 20H1. The company plans to send an Insider preview version update to Fast Channel users earlier than expected.

Microsoft’s Brandon LeBlanc said: “With Windows 10 May 2019 coming into the Release Preview channel, we plan to send 20H1 updates to Fast channel users in the near future. We also plan to merge some Windows Insider users with Skip Ahead option into the Fast channel. We hope that these changes will be completed in the next few weeks.”With Microsoft developing the Windows 10 system as a service, it will receive two feature updates every year. Up to now, the Windows 10 system has received 6 feature updates, respectively

● Windows 10 November update (Version 1511)

● Windows 10 Anniversary Update (Version 1607)

● Windows 10 Creator Update (Version 1703)

● Windows 10 Fall Creator Update (Version 1709)

● Windows 10 April update (Version 1803)

● Windows 10 October update (Version 1809)

As you can see, Microsoft is currently adjusting the release plan for feature updates. The Windows 10 May update (Version 1903) did not choose the usual regular April, but placed it more rigorously in late May.

New highlights

Light Theme (light theme)

Currently, in the default theme of all versions of Win10, the start menu, taskbar, operation center, etc. are gray-black base, plus some semi-transparent effects. The new bright theme changes the above elements to a faint creamy white, including the wallpapers that are simultaneously brightened and more vibrant. Note that the upgraded color effect does not take effect by default. You need to go to Settings – Personalization – Color and change the Windows Mode to “Light”.Although all technology companies have focused on the development of Dark Theme, Microsoft offers another direction of improvement based on consumer feedback.


New Cortana and search experience

In previous versions of the Windows 10 October update (Version 1809), Microsoft deeply integrated the search and Cortana voice assistant features. Users can perform simple tasks such as searching for documents through Cortana, and also integrate some digital assistant functions into the search function. In today’s blog post, Microsoft emphasizes separation of search and Cortana, allowing companies to introduce more new features and bring improvements to both.

Start menu improvement

● Improve the reliability of the start menuThe current start menu is hosted by the Windows Shell Experience Host, which handles graphical elements of key functions such as start menus, taskbar transparency, and pop-ups. However, in Windows 10 19H1, the Start menu no longer relies on this process, but instead uses its own process called “StartMenuExperienceHost”.

● Quickly unpin groups and folders from the Start menu

Sometimes we want to get a whole new experience, and in the past few weeks we have invited some users to test through the right-click menu to allow ungrouping of groups and folders in the start menu. Today, we are opening this feature to all Fast Channel users and hope to collect more feedback.

● Simplify the start of layout

As shown in the screenshot below, the layout of the start menu has been further simplified, with a more stylish single-column design and a reduction in the number of top-level tiles.Based on user feedback, Microsoft introduced a simplified default start layout for new devices, new user accounts, and clean installation devices. The new layout is simplified to a single-column design and reduces the number of first-level tiles. For IT administrators, this doesn’t require worry, and business and education customers will see simplified layouts tailored to these scenarios.

In conjunction with previous adjustments: including uninstalling other inbox apps, and making it easier to unpin fixed files or tile groups, the goal of simplifying the layout is to enhance the consumer experience.

Reserved StorageOne of the important improvements in Windows 10 19H1 is the Reserved Storage. The purpose of preserving storage is to leave approximately 7GB of disk space for Windows Update and temporary files.

As Microsoft emphasized earlier this week, Reserved Storage refers to the space allocated to the system to download the necessary update files. The reserved disk space will help ensure that all Windows 10 devices can be seamlessly upgraded to the new version.

In Windows 10 October updates or earlier, Windows Update may fail if there is not enough space. In 19H1, Reserved Storage is to ensure that Windows 10 devices can perform the update process correctly.Windows SanboxWindows Sandbox is a new lightweight desktop environment that is tailored to run applications securely.Have you ever downloaded an executable file, but are hesitant about running it? Have you ever had to install a Windows system completely, but don’t want to set up a virtual machine?This is often the case at least within Microsoft, so Microsoft developed the Windows Sandbox, a completely separate desktop environment where you can run untrusted software without worrying about lasting effects on your device. .Any software installed in the Windows Sandbox is only left in the sandbox and does not affect your host. When you close the Windows Sandbox, all software that contains all of its files and status is permanently deleted.The Windows Sandbox has the following properties:

● Native integration to WindowsWindows 10 Professional and Enterprise Edition natively include all the files for this feature and do not need to download the VHD.

● PureEvery time the Windows Sandbox runs, it’s as clean as a new Windows installation.

● One timeThere are no pre-installed content on the device. Everything will be dropped after closing the app

● SecurityKernel isolation using hardware-based virtualization, relying on a Microsoft Hypervisor to run a separate kernel, isolating the Windows Sandbox from the host

● EfficientUse integrated kernel scheduler, intelligent memory management and virtual GPUIf you want to install the Windows Sandbox,

go to Settings > Applications > Applications and Features > Programs and Features > Turn Windows features on or off and select Enable Windows Sandbox. To launch the Windows Sandbox, open the Start menu, type in the Windows Sandbox, and select it.

The Windows Sandbox follows the host diagnostics data settings. All other privacy settings are set to their default values. For more information, you can visit the Windows Sandbox in Windows Kernel Internals.Windows 10 “Intelligent Active Hours”The Windows Update service has allowed users to pause updates or to judge based on the “Intelligent Active Hours” feature to avoid interrupting the user’s busy work. Enabling this setting lets Windows know when to avoid rebooting the device. This feature is challenging, but build 18282 has been able to automatically adjust based on the device’s active time.

Users in need can go to ‘Settings -> Update and Security -> Windows Update -> Change Activity Time’ to enable this setting to avoid disruption of productivity.Resource manager improvement● Update Explorer iconBased on user feedback, Microsoft updated the Explorer icon to make it more relevant to Light themes. The current explorer icon looks like this:

● Update the sorting of the default download folder

Under normal circumstances, when a user downloads a file, the file name is not modified before being downloaded. Therefore, this makes these download files always easy to forget (for example, cake_134_small_red.jpg), which makes sorting by name less desirable and it is difficult to find the file you are looking for. So Microsoft updated the default sorting method to time, and the most recently downloaded file will be displayed at the top of the list.Can remove built-in appsThe results after the upgrade are quite satisfactory, and you will find that there are more “uninstall” functions in the right-click menu of many built-in applications. Of course, the uninstallation here is limited to general applications. As for Edge and the application store, don’t think about it. After all, it will involve many of the underlying functions of Win10.Windows Update adjustmentThe May 2019 update will also allow Windows 10 users to control how they get feature updates. Previously, Microsoft’s upgrade work for Windows 10 has been more aggressive, and it is hoped that these updates will be actively pushed to the machine to ensure that consumers use the latest version of the operating system. But all this is about to change: the May 2019 update will now allow you to choose when to install the latest mainstream version. Windows 10 users will be able to use only the existing version and continue to receive monthly security updates before the upgrade policy is set, thus avoiding the latest feature updates.

Microsoft also allows Windows 10 Home and Pro users to pause features and monthly updates for up to 35 days, and it introduces user activity detection features so that the operating system can detect when you are still using the PC, so the update cannot be installed, so There will be no troubles. Windows updates are a particular pain point for Windows 10 users. Microsoft is clearly listening to users and offering more choices. Windows 10 will still prompt you to get the latest feature updates, but will not force updates immediately.Microsoft also allows Windows 10 Home and Pro users to pause features and monthly updates for up to 35 days, and it introduces user activity detection features so that the operating system can detect when you are still using the PC, so the update cannot be installed, so There will be no troubles.
