Windows 10 May 2019 Update now available to download

In theory, using a restore point after a Windows Update has been performed shouldn't cause any problems - but it does. If the update is available in your region, it will not be installed automatically, but rather offered as an available "Feature update to Windows 10, version 1903" that you can choose to "Download and install now".

Windows 10 cumulative update KB4505057 was originally released by Microsoft to fix the gov.uk bug in the May 2019 Update (version 1903) for insiders in the Slow and Release Preview ring.

In another related piece of news Microsoft has just fixed another Patch Tuesday bug introduced last week, which was preventing access to some United Kingdom government websites in Edge and Internet Explorer. However, the update was newsworthy - not just because of the potential spreading of malware via this vulnerability - but that Microsoft had seen fit to furnish users of OSes well past end-of-support dates with a patch.

Installing cumulative update KB4505057 on a device running Windows 10 May 2019 Update pushes the OS build number to 18362.116. Some of these factors can include a specific piece of hardware or peripheral connected to your computer, incompatible device drivers, applications, security software, and your geographical location can also dictate when the new feature update will be available to you.

Alternatively, you can use the Media Creation Tool to upgrade your device to the Windows 10 May 2019 Update avoiding long waits. Repeated reboots will not allow the system to proceed to the Windows desktop.

Much like most of the other major Windows 10 updates, Microsoft is rolling out the May 2019 Update in phases, that means the rollout will take a while to reach every compatible Windows 10 device.

If your device isn't getting the new feature update, it's likely that the new version isn't fully compatible. Well, it's happening again, but this time it's affecting Windows 7 PCs.
