Microsoft pushes Windows 10 May 2019 Update to the Release Preview ring

The update is now available for download and will be shown as "Feature update to Windows 10, version 1903" in Windows Update. Updates are also available for version 1703 (KB4493474), 1607 (KB4493470), and the original Windows 10 (KB4493475). Under "What pace do you want to get new builds?' It should say 'Release Preview".

In fact, Windows 10 will now allow you to suspend monthly and feature updates up to 35 days.

Although Microsoft is gearing up to begin its gradual rollout of the May 2019 Update, version 1903, for Windows 10 toward the end of May, as soon as the feature update is finalized, you can download the final version before anyone else with the Windows Insider Program.

"The May 2019 Update (Build 18362.30) is being rolled out to the Release Preview ring starting with seekers", a new post to the Windows Experience blog announces.

You will now be prompted to link a Microsoft account with the program. Additionally, Microsoft will aggressively internally deploy the May 2019 Update during the Release Preview period and encourage employees to do the same on their personal devices. As above, visit the Settings Update & Security Windows Update menu, and click Get Started.

On the "What kind of content would you like to receive?" page, select the Just fixes, apps, and drivers option, which is the "Release Preview" option.

Security updates to Microsoft Scripting Engine, Windows Input and Composition, Windows Graphics, Microsoft Graphics Component, Windows App Platform and Frameworks, Windows Storage and Filesystems, Windows Server, Windows Datacenter Networking, Windows Server, Windows MSXML, Windows Kernel, Windows Virtualization, and the Microsoft JET Database Engine. Windows administrators who did not want their devices to be updated automatically to new feature updates had to defer updates or change updating behavior otherwise to avoid that and to never click on "check for updates" manually either.

After you select the ring, Microsoft will ask you confirm the Windows Insider Program agreement. That's why the term "stable" has to be taken with a grain of salt: Microsoft thinks the May 2019 Update is feature complete and bug-free-but it also thought so with the October 2018 Update, and we all remember what happened then.

Windows 10 1803 Build 17134.706 (KB4493464)Provides protections against Spectre Variant 2 (CVE-2017-5715) and Meltdown (CVE-2017-5754) for VIA-based computers. Eventually, in late May, the Windows 10 May 2019 Update will roll out to all PCs, and you'll have to go through the upgrade process.
