Microsoft on Tuesday made the seventh Windows 10 feature update dubbed May 2019 Update or version 1903 available to non-Insiders. In addition to security and performance improvements, the update includes new features like a new light theme, Windows Sandbox for app testing, and the ability to pause updates (including Home versions).

Just like with other new feature updates, Microsoft will start rolling out version 1903 gradually via Windows Update. It will begin with newer devices first and then expand to others more broadly over the coming weeks and months. However, if you’re an early adopter (and not an Insider) here is a look at a couple of ways you can get it now.
Note: Before upgrading your version of Windows 10, make sure you have your important data backed up first. Also, make sure to have a full system image backup or at least a Windows 10 USB recovery drive. This will help you restore and recover your system in the event something goes awry.

To upgrade your current version of Windows 10 to the May 2019 Update, head to the Windows 10 download page. Then click the “Update now” button to download the Update Assistant tool.
Hold Off on Windows 10 1903
We have covered some of the best new and notable features in Windows 10 1903. But nothing included in the version is “vital” for the average users. But if you always like getting the latest and greatest, you can get the new update now. However, there will undoubtedly be issues with the update for some users depending on their system.
Microsoft’s deployment of the last feature update – version 1809 aka “Windows 10 October 2018 Update” was a quagmire. The company pulled 1809 due to missing files within four days of the first launch. It then took Microsoft several weeks to fix it and finally re-release the October 2018 Update.
The company has done a much better job vetting this version this time, though. Still, our best advice is to wait until Microsoft makes the update available via Windows Update before taking the plunge. If you’re not worried about upgrading until you know all the kinks have been worked out, you can always delay or defer Windows 10 feature updates – for up to a full year on Pro versions.
