Microsoft's next feature update for Windows 10 sways more towards subtle changes and enhancements over blockbuster new features, but those changes and enhancements are definitely welcomed. Let's go hands-on with a video walkthrough showcasing the notable new features and changes coming with the November 2019 Update.

There are only a few surface-level changes with the November 2019 Update, but that's okay because users typically don't like it when Microsoft comes in and changes everything up. All the changes in the November Update are minor enhancements to the overall user experience, such as improved notification settings, and Search updates.

Make sure you check out the video walkthrough above and let us know what you think of the November Update in the comments below. The Windows 10 November 2019 Update, also known as Version 1909, will begin rolling out in early November.

  • I'm not really holding my breath much, but I am looking forward to the battery-related optimizations that will come in this update. I will take anything I can get to improve my laptop's battery life.
  • Make sure you do a *recovery drive* so you can restore your PC to proper working order after the update messes it up.
  • I think the BSoD is now being sold as a “feature.” “…Version 1909, will begin rolling out in early November.”
  • "Hey, look, the flat tire costs extra"
  • Hoping for the battery optimization to make a *noticeable* difference, but will wait to install until the initial dust settles.
  • Hover on start menu works in 1903
  • Not for mine. Can't even Google search a way to enable them.
  • Huh, that's odd. He showed on video and I thought to myself, it's been doing that for a while. A/B testing maybe? I am not in the insider program right now, though. So who knows.
  • That might be the issue. I'm not on the Insider Program.
