Windows 10 is now receiving the November 2019 update.

The update brings new a slew of new improvements.

One can get the new update by heading over to the Update & Security center in Windows Settings and checking for updates from the Windows Update category

Microsoft has released the November 2019 update for Windows 10, which comes with select performance improvements, enterprise features and quality enhancements. The new update is available for users who are running the most recent version of Windows 10 and they can download it from Windows update. Some notable features being introduced with the new updated include event creation directly from the Calendar flyout on the Taskbar. Managing notifications should be simpler since there is now a new button at the top of the Action Center, along with an option to sort notifications by most recently shown.

In addition, after the update, users will finally be able to search for OneDrive content in the File Explorer search box since OneDrive content online is being integrated with traditional indexed results. To better inform users where they are clicking, the navigation pane on ṭhe Start menu will enlarge the mouse pointer hovers over it. Voice commands can also be used to activate third-party digital assistants from the Lock screen, which is a feature that was supposed to be rolled out with the September Windows 10 update. This option will finally enable users to set Alexa and other digital assistants to activate on the lock screen. 

One can get the new update by heading over to the Update & Security center in Windows Settings and checking for updates from the Windows Update category. Microsoft also reiterates that it wants to give more controls to a user when it comes to updates and that Windows Update will automatically initiate a feature update for devices that are at, or within several months of reaching, end of service. We are just hoping that this new Windows patch solves more problems rather than creating some. 

The Windows update that was pushed out in October caused BSOD errors and broke video drivers for many users. Before this, an update crippled network adapters on some PCs.
