Microsoft has released the Windows 10 November 2019 update and it is not a massive, feature-filled update. Instead, the Windows 10 November update acts more like an old-school service pack that we used to get with previous Windows versions, with only a handful of new features, which is great.
The past several months weren’t all that great (to put it lightly) when it comes to Windows 10 updates, with multiple issues, for example, an update that broke Windows Search and Cortana for some users. However, it looks like the Windows 10 November 2019 update is pretty solid.
If you are already on the May 2019 Update, you can now easily update to Windows 10 version 1909, which is the November update. All you need to do is head on over to Settings, then Update & Security, then Windows Update and click on “check for updates”. The version 1909 update should appear. However, Microsoft does explain that:

The Windows 10 November 2019 update includes the following new features:
- Quickly creating an event directly from the Calendar flyout on the Taskbar.
- Better managing notifications, including a new button at the top of the Action Center and the ability to sort notifications by most recently shown.
- Integrating OneDrive content online with traditional indexed results in the File Explorer search box.
- The navigation pane on the Start menu now expands when you hover over it with your mouse to better inform where clicking goes.
- Using your voice to activate third-party digital assistants from the Lock screen.
