Windows 10 releases a major update roughly twice a year, usually in April and October. The latest release brings us the plainly titled Windows 10 October 2018 Update. As expected, it brings improvements large and small.
Let’s take a look at some of the new features and updates in the latest version of Windows. We’ve kept an archive of notable features from previous updates, in case you’re interested. Feel free to jump ahead to any section.

The October 2018 Update
You’ll eventually get the October 2018 Update through Windows Update, just like any other. Microsoft deploys major feature updates in batches, so you might not get it right away. When it’s time, you’ll see a prompt letting you know there’s a big update pending.
If you want to expedite the process, head to Settings Update & Security Windows Update and click Check for updates. Doing so lets Windows know you want the latest update now, so it should start downloading. If this doesn’t work, head to the Download Windows 10 page and click Update now to prompt the download.
