22 May 2019 - Windows 10 Seventh Major Update (1903) Now Available

Today, Microsoft officially released their seventh major update (version 1903) for the Windows 10 operating system. As with past major Windows updates, the release is being rolled out in phases, with most users likely to receive the update sometime over the next couple of Months.

A word of caution to early adopters; due to the severity of issues affecting last year's 2018 April and November major updates, we're recommending users delay the 1903 update for a minimum of 2 weeks. Microsoft's bi-weekly cumulative updates following 1903 will likely contain fixes for any major bugs that are discovered during the coming weeks.

And as always, make sure you have a current backup of all important data, files and documents before performing any major updates.
