You can download and install the final release of Windows 10 November 2019 Update now – download Windows 10 ISO images (version 1909) from the official Microsoft servers or install the new version through Windows Update.
The public release of Windows 10 November 2019 Update, code-named Windows 10 19H2, took place on November 12. Microsoft considers Build 18363.418 to be the final build that contains all the new update features.
How to download Windows 10 November 2019 Update (version 1909)
Using Windows Update
Starting November 12, the November 2019 Update is available for users of the latest versions of Windows 10 who search for available updates in the Windows Update Center.
If you are ready to install the update, go to Windows Update (Settings > Update and Security > Windows Update) and click the “Check for Updates” button. After the “Feature Upgrade to Windows 10, Version 1909” section appears in the Optional Updates Available section, click on the Download and Install Now link.
Note: if you followed these steps and didn’t see the entry “Upgrading to Windows 10, Version 1909,” then your device may have compatibility issues. You will receive the update when the developers are confident in its stable and reliable installation.
To complete the update installation, you will need to reboot the device. Save your files and close open applications, and then click Restart Now.
If you are not ready to reboot the device, select the Schedule restart option, and then select the desired date and time to reboot. If you do not have time to schedule a restart, Windows will do this automatically for you, excluding the time of active use of the device. You can also pause the update for up to 35 days (5 times for 7 days).
Upgrading features to Windows 10, version 1909 will be the most compact in size and fastest updating features of Windows 10 of all time. It is more reminiscent of the classic Windows service packs (Service Pack) – users of the May 2019 Update will only have the small “enablement package” activation package (KB4517245). Therefore, the update process itself will take no more than 10 minutes.
Using Media Creation Tool
A special Media Creation Tool will help you update the system directly on your PC without creating installation media. To do this, just run the utility and select Update this computer now. Detailed instructions are available on our website:
Using the utility, you can also download an ISO image and create an installation DVD/USB flash drive that will allow you to update one or more computers to version 1909, as well as perform a clean installation of the system.
This method will be very useful for users who do not want to rely on automatic updates through Windows Update, but decided to independently perform the update process. The Media Creation Tool will allow you to receive the Windows 10 November 2019 Update on the first day of the update release, because the phased implementation does not apply to this method.
