  1. Microsoft release Windows 10 19H2 Insider Preview Build 18362.10022 to the Slow Ring Today Microsoft released Windows 10 19H2 Build 18362.10022 to Windows Insiders in the Slow ring. This build includes the improvements and fixes from KB4515384 as well as general improvements to the overall quality of 19H2. Microsoft is also making pre-release Windows 10 feature updates available to IT administrators using Windows Server Update Service (WSUS). Windows Insider Program for Business customers can now request Microsoft Support for Windows 10 Version 1909 (19H2) builds in the Release Preview and Slow rings. To see more of what 19H2 contains see the recent Release Preview changelog here. Source: Microsoft release Windows 10 19H2 Insider Preview Build 18362.10022 to the Slow Ring (MSPoweruser)
  2. Windows 10 19H2 Update might arrive in early November Microsoft is in the process of adding finishing touches to the upcoming major update of Windows 10 codenamed Windows 10 19H2. The software giant earlier hinted that the second major update of Windows 10 for the year 2019 will land soon by making the Build 18363.356 ESD available on WSUS. However, it’s wasn’t clear as to when Microsoft will bring the update to the public. Now, according to Zac Bowden at WindowsCentral, Microsoft will release the Windows 10 19H2 Update by early November, it might release the update later this month if all goes well. And if you go back in time, the Windows 10 1809(October Update) Update was also released around the same time last year, so it seems likely that the 19H2 Update will follow suit. That said, there is still no information on the official name for the 19H2 Update, but there is a high degree of probability that Microsoft will call it either ‘Windows 10 October 2019 Update,’ or ‘Windows 10 November 2019 Update,’ depending on which month the update become available for the public. It’s worth noting that users running the Windows 10 May 2019 Update will be able to install the 19H2 feature update like a monthly cumulative update. However, Users who are running any Windows 10 version older than Windows 10 May 2019 Update are not going to get the 19H2 update like a monthly cumulative update, meaning that the way of updating to Windows 10 19H2 will be the same as before for users running Windows October 2018 Update or older.

  3. Windows 10's fall upgrade: Yep, it's a service pack When it comes to Windows, what's old is new again. The next update to Windows 10 will amount to little more than tweaks and improvements to May's Windows 10 1903. Adam Patrick Murray / IDG Microsoft last week tacitly confirmed that this year's fall upgrade for Windows 10 will, in fact, be service pack-like, in effect a rerun of the May 2019 Update, aka Windows 10 1903 On Thursday, Microsoft delivered two previews to what it continues to call 19H2, a reference to the second-half upgrade in its twice-annual cadence for Windows 10. Some Insiders - the volunteer participants in the Windows 10 beta program - would get one build while others would get another. The difference? "A subset of Insiders in the Slow ring will have features turned off by default, and another subset will have them turned on by default," wrote Dona Sarkar and Brandon LeBlanc, Microsoft employees and the public faces of Windows Insider. "We are testing the ability to ship these updates with features turned off by default so that we can then turn them on via controlled feature rollouts. This helps us gain better feedback on overall build quality." It wasn't this off-on that corroborated the service pack-esque nature of Windows 10 1909, the likely official yymm label for 19H2 when it launches next month. Early last month, when Microsoft announced that the year's second refresh would not be the usual feature upgrade but instead a scaled-back update delivered via the same service that feeds monthly fixes to Windows, Computerworld decoded the company's statements and concluded - as did others - that the fall update would be very, very similar to the old service packs of Windows 7 and before. A service pack contained the cumulative updates of the past, recent or not, but only rarely included new features. Microsoft last issued one in February 2011, when it released Windows 7's Service Pack 1, or SP1. The service pack-ness of 19H2/1909 was central to Computerworld's later analysis of the upgrade changes' impact, to wit that Microsoft had scaled back feature upgrades, real feature upgrades, to only one a year, labels be damned. What had been the fall refresh would shrink to service pack stature. Under such a regime, enterprise customers could reduce refreshes to one each year, possibly even further, to one every two years. That 19H2/1909 will be a service pack, little more than a retread of May's Windows 10 1903, was clear from the small number of features Sarkar and LeBlanc touted last week, and those features' even smaller impact. "The navigation pane on the Start menu now expands when you hover over it with your mouse to better inform where clicking goes," the pair said. Another feature was described as "... a 'Manage notifications' button [at] the top of Action Center that launches the main 'Notifications & actions' Settings page." There's clearly nothing ground-shaking or ground-breaking for the service pack. (Note: As Microsoft promised when it first described 19H2/1909's content, Sarkar and LeBlanc said that it will include performance improvements. Processors with a "favored" core - one logical processor may be better suited for a particular task because of its standard or boosted clock speed, and so is selected for that job - will be used by Windows to "distribute work more fairly.") Microsoft has not set a release date for Windows 10 1909 but has said it would be "a September-targeted release." With just four weeks to Sept. 10 - the month's Patch Tuesday, which may also be the release date for the service pack - and under seven weeks to the month's end, it seems unlikely 19H2/1909 will get many, if any, additional "features." Service pack? Yes. Everything old is new again. Source: Windows 10's fall upgrade: Yep, it's a service pack (Computerworld - Gregg Keizer)
  4. Microsoft pushes Windows 10 19H2 Build18363.327 to the Release Preview Ring After a long delay, Microsoft finally pushed out a new build to the Release Preview Ring. For around 10% of Windows 10 Insiders on the Release Preview Ring Microsoft is offering a version 1909 update available for those Insiders who Check for Updates in Settings. After they install the update, their OS will be updated to 19H2 Build 18363.327. Despite being set to the Release Preview Ring this is not in fact a near-final build of Windows 10 19H2. Microsoft is merely testing its throttled approach to pushing out the OS update. Microsoft intends to push out the OS as part of the monthly Cumulative Update process for those already on Windows 10 19H1. Windows 10 Insiders in the Release Preview ring who get 19H2 Build 18363.327 today will not see all the 19H2 features the Slow ring currently has as not all the features have been incorporated into the build yet. Because of the differences between the way the 19H2 updates are packaged between the Slow and Release Preview rings, Insiders in the Slow ring will not be able to switch to the Release Preview ring and get updates yet. Microsoft says Insiders who are thinking of switching rings should stay put for now. Windows 10 Insiders in the Release Preview Ring should Check for Updates at Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update and may be lucky enough to find a new build there.

  5. Microsoft release two new Windows 10 19H2 builds into the Slow Ring Today Microsoft released two new 19H2 builds (Build 18362.10014 and Build 18362.10015 ) into the Windows 10 Insider Slow Ring. If you are on 19H2 Build 18362.10012 – you will receive Build 18362.10014 with features turned OFF by default. This includes the below-mentioned features as well as the features from the previous release. If you are on 19H2 Build 18362.10013 – you will receive Build 18362.10015 with features turned ON by default. Microsoft is testing the ability to ship these updates with features turned off by default so that Microsoft can then turn them on via controlled feature rollouts. This means not everyone in the Slow ring will see new features right away. If you’re on the Windows 10 May 2019 Update and just joining your PC into the Slow ring to take 19H2 updates, it’ll be a virtual “coin toss” as to whether your PC gets features turned on or turned off. If you are lucky enough to have a build with features turned on, the update brings the following new features: Microsoft has enabled Windows Defender Credential Guard for ARM64 devices for additional protection against credential theft for enterprises deploying ARM64 devices in their organizations. Microsoft has enabled the ability for enterprises to supplement the Windows 10 in S Mode policy to allow traditional Win32 (desktop) apps from Microsoft Intune. Microsoft has updated search in File Explorer to show web-powered suggestions in addition to files locally indexed on the PC. Microsoft has added the ability for Narrator and other assistive technologies to read and learn where the FN key is located on keyboards and what state it is in (locked versus unlocked). Windows Insiders in the Slow Ring can update to the new build by Checking for Updates in Settings. Source: Microsoft release two new Windows 10 19H2 builds into the Slow Ring (MSPoweruser)
  6. Microsoft releases 19H2 build to put 18362.10024 users on build 18363 Earlier this month, Microsoft confirmed that build 18363.418 is likely going to be the final build that rolls out to non-Insiders as the Windows 10 November 2019 Update. While that build has been available in the Release Preview ring since Patch Tuesday, it's been an issue for Insiders that started on the 19H2 train in the Slow ring. That's because the Slow ring has been on build 18362.100xx; most recently, it's been on build 18362.10024. Even if you would switch to the Release Preview ring, it wouldn't put you on build 18363, and the reason for this is because of how 19H2 works. 19H2 adds an enablement package to your PC, bumping up the build number by one, while the build revision number remains the same. Because of this, it's impossible to add the enablement package and lower the build revision number from .10024 to .418. Microsoft is fixing the issue today, issuing build 18363.418 to the Release Preview ring for anyone that's on build 18362.10024. Because of the situation outlined above, this is a full build, not just a small package. Also, it's worth noting that this is Release Preview-only; if you're on the Slow ring, you won't get it, so you'll want to switch over if you want to stay on 19H2. The company noted in an update to a blog post that the Slow ring is going to start getting 20H1 builds very shortly. That means that if you want to stay on 19H2, you'll want to switch over to Release Preview as soon as possible. Source: Microsoft releases 19H2 build to put 18362.10024 users on build 18363 (Neowin)
  7. Microsoft’s second major Windows 10 Update of 2019, codenamed as 19H2, is now officially known as Windows 10 November 2019 Update. As the name suggests, the new Windows 10 update will be rolled out to the public in November, but we didn’t know as to when the rollout will begin in November, until now. According to Zac Bowden at Windows Central, Microsoft is considering November 12 the date that will mark the beginning of the rollout process of Windows 10 November 2019 Update a.k.a. Windows 10 19H2 Update. Unfortunately, Microsoft won’t bundle the new Chromium Edge with the 19H2 Update, we could, however, see the Chromium Edge taking the place of the classic Edge in 20H1 RTM Build. In the very same week, Microsoft is also expected to release the first 20H2 Build, codenamed Manganese, to the Windows Insiders in the Skip Ahead ring. 28 people are talking about this Another interesting information is that the RTM of Windows 10X, which will power the foldable dual-screen Surface Neo, might release with the RTM of Windows 10 20H1, so we’ll get to know more about the Windows 10X during the month of April. As always, plans can change, so don’t get mad at Microsoft if they fail to deliver. Source
  8. With Windows 10 19H2 Still MIA, a Late 2019 Service Pack Just Makes Sense With Windows 10 May 2019 Update already rolling out to users, the next logical step for Microsoft would be to move forward to the next OS feature update due in the fall. As per Microsoft’s own approach, once a new Windows 10 version is finalized, the company begins the work on the next one, and the first steps typically involve releasing preview builds to members of the Windows Insider program. However, the most recent preview build that Microsoft shipped to insiders isn’t an early release of the fall 2019 update, but actually a testing version of the feature update that the company plans for the spring of 2020. The late-2019 update, officially codenamed 19H2, is still nowhere to be seen despite the fact that it’s supposed to be finalized in September, and this does nothing more than fuel rumors claiming this release wouldn’t bring anything major to Windows 10 users.Just a service pack?Earlier this year, it was speculated that the 19H2 update could end up being nothing more than a service pack, and Microsoft not shipping any testing builds seems to indicate this is the case. As Chris Hoffmann of How-To Geek noticed on Twitter, “19H2 isn’t going to see much public testing,” despite Microsoft originally promising to release preview builds “in the spring.” Microsoft watcher Mary Jo Foley says the 19H2 update is likely to become more of a service pack for Windows 10 19H1 (May 2019 Update). “I think it really will be mostly like a service pack for 19H1. and rumor is if there are any new features they might be turned off by default,” she posted. Whatever the strategy, Microsoft owes its users some specifics on the next Windows 10 feature update, as all the focus right now seems to be on the 20H1 release. Source
