The Windows 10 May 2021 Update is now available

It's been a few months since Microsoft officially began testing the Windows 10 May 2021 Update, also known as version 21H1, with Windows Insiders in the Beta channel. This update technically never went through the Dev channel, because those builds aren't tied to a specific version of Windows 10 and they're on an active development branch for future releases of Windows.

 

Today, the Windows 10 May 2021 Update is available for anyone who wants to install it, and just like version 20H2, it's a simple enablement package, meaning you won't get any actual new features downloaded to your computer. This update will simply light up certain features that are already there, and in this case, there isn't a whole lot.

 

We have a full guide covering everything that's new in this update, but it boils down to a handful of things. First, Windows Hello now works better on systems that have multiple cameras with facial recognition - for example, if you have a laptop with a Windows Hello camera connected to a monitor that also has a Windows Hello camera built-in.

 

Aside from that, Microsoft made some performance improvements to Windows Defender Application Guard, including improved performance in Robocopy when transferring files that are over 400MB in size. It also includes some improvements to the Windows Management Instrumentation Group Policy Server to help accommodate remote work scenarios.

 

In fact, remote work as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic is the reason Microsoft cited for why it's only releasing a small enablement package in the spring, so these improvements line up with that. Still, it makes for a fairly unexciting update.

 

If you want to get this new update, Microsoft is once again using the seeker method, meaning you'll need to manually check for updates in the Settings app and opt into installing this update, though it doesn't seem to be available through this method yet. You can also the Media Creation Tool or the Upgrade Assistant to download the update. Both tools can be found on this page.

 

Feature updates such as this one are only forced onto users when their current version is close to the end-of-support date, so you won't be forced to install it anytime soon. Even then, seeing as it's such a minor update, it's likely that there isn't much of a risk in installing it.

I personally don't think you should do so much work and start updating your Windows through Windows Update service or worse if you need to do an update using an .iso file or USB.
You can do it much faster if You already have installed Windows 10 2004 with some updates listed bellow (these are mandatory) and Your currently installed Windows is OK, ie there is not any errors availble.

Then 21H1 is already in Your computer, only its features isn't till enabled. Simply enable them and everything is done.
There is only one thing to do in a few minutes and one restart.
This assumes that you have the Servicing stack update for Windows 10, version 2004, and the update May 11, 2021 - KB5003173 (OS Build 19041.985) or what ever a later cumulative update installed on your computer.

How to upgrade in minutes?

Here is once again what needs to be done and what remains to be done.

Before updating to Windows 10, version 21H1 using an enablement package, you must be running Windows 10, version 2004 or 20H2. You must have the following prerequisites installed before applying this update:

Restart information: You must restart your device after you apply this update.
Update replacement information: This update does not replace any previously released update.

NB! If you're using a Google Chrome or Chromium-based browser, you may need to open the links in an incognito window, as these browsers require https:// links.

I've personally tested it and everything works great.

For some time you all can to enable version 21H2, ie 19044.1023.
It already exists on all these computers where the version 19043.1023 have been installed, all you need to do is to enable new features in this version and You'll get version 19044.1023, even restart is not neccesary.
True, it is not yet final, but it works completely without problems.
Personally, I use it on two computers at the moment.

PS. If you are interested, is needed to run some dism commands and it takes about 5 minutes and you're done.

Did a clean reinstall of Windows 10 21H1 and I'm still getting the same stutter I had in Windows 10 20H2 with the KB5001330 update when playing games and having V-Sync enabled.

Like on most online forums the use of the 'Like / Thanks' button is preferred over simply posting 'Thanks' or something similar. Making an excessive amount of posts which add little to nothing to a topic might result in a post count reduction.

To resume, I had check the both links.

As you can probably understand, there is a trouble because the link "gofile.io" is totally empty (as today nothing remain) sic...

Another trouble ? About the link MediaFire, no we can't find these files.

 

Where is the checksum ? Because you didn't provide (MD5, SHA1, etc) and a lot of people rather an official .iso (from "MDSN" etc).

That's why we can't determine the origin of these files.
