Microsoft Re-Releases Windows 10 October 2018 Update, Outlines Rigorous QC Regimen

Microsoft Re-releasing Windows 10 October Update (1809) Today

Microsoft Rereleases Windows 10 Version 1809 and Windows Server 2019

In order to install the October 2018 Update, you will have to go to Windows Update in Settings and "Check for updates". Unlike last month, when many Windows users saw the contents of their "My Documents" folder erased by a buggy update, I'm not aware of any major issues this time around. The rollout today will be a small sample of users.

To say that 2018 has been a rough year for Windows is likely an understatement; with two delayed releases of Windows 10 and activation issues, the year can't come to an end soon enough.

New features in Windows 10 1809 include the Your Phone app, security improvements and upgrades to wireless projection. That concept also applies to Windows Server 2019 releases, where November 13 marks the "start of the servicing timeline for both the Long-Term Servicing Channel and the Semi-Annual Channel, Microsoft explained, in a Windows Server team blog post". The clipboard in Windows 10 version 1809 also now permits users to check the clipboard's history, including copied images.

But, nevertheless, the update is finally here and brings all the new features, including the support for DirectX Raytracing (DXR), the new Dark Mode, a new feature that blocks Windows Update notifications and delays Windows Update install when you are gaming, courtesy of the so-called Game Mode. Specifically, Microsoft is slowing down the normal process by which Windows 10 forces users to update to the newest version.

The former Spice Girl poked fun at Paves, chiding, "Why are we doing this Ken?" "She just didn't want to do it". We get that the band has a whole bunch of male fans yes.


"Based on this data, today we are beginning the re-release of the October Update by making it available via media and to advanced users who seek to manually check for updates".

If you want to install the Windows 10 October 2018 Update, you can go to the "Check for updates" function in your computer's settings.

"In addition to extensive internal validation, we have taken time to closely monitor feedback and diagnostic data from our Windows Insiders and from the millions of devices on the Windows 10 October Update, and we have no further evidence of data loss". Such users may typically get Windows 10 feature updates automatically from Microsoft's Windows Update service, but they won't arrive if the telemetry readings are off.
