Microsoft's next Windows 10 feature update, known as version 1903 or the May 2019 Update, is almost complete. That means it's time to go hands-on with the upcoming release to showcase all the biggest new features and changes you can expect to see when it begins rolling out this spring.

The May 2019 Update packs lots of improvements to the overall user interface when it comes to things like the Windows Shell and system components. There are new drop shadow effects behind modern menus and popups, a default Start menu layout that's much cleaner, a feature called Windows Sandbox, a new light theme, and more. We showcase it all in our video walkthrough above.
