Windows 10 version 1903 for all you version fans.

To check your version, run WINVER from the RUN dialog (Windows key+R). I'm still seeing some Windows 10 systems running version 1803 from early 2018. It's time to install those updates!

Behind every good computer... is a jumble of wires 'n stuff.

One of many sites: https://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/windows_10.html. Sorry see you already found it, one of those 0 dark thirty things. It is a fairly long update. I usually do mine from a burnt DVD or flash drive so I can use them on other machines.

Do I need the media creation tool, or will MS make it available directly?

Use the Microsoft Media Creator 1903. I don't particularly trust using the online download it offers. You can do it any way you like though. It is always a good idea to make a backup but I didn't this time and it worked out fine. A long installation this time and there are two updates left afterword, .net and Adobe Flash if I remember correctly, a little tired at the moment.

Yesterday I updated from 1809 using the Windows 10 Update Assistant download. It took most of the afternoon/early evening to complete the update with several reboots.

This is what I’ve observed so far -

Old ms games no longer work – will need to find replacements.

Short cut arrows had returned – now gone again.

Hovering delay over taskbar items no longer settable through regedit settings even though the settings are unchanged from
when hovering was delayed - I haven’t found a solution yet for this annoyance.

“Classic start Menu” is still functional despite a popup that says it wasn’t compatible. So far, it is!

Edge Browser needed to be re-blocked by EdgeBlocker.

Login screen picture had been changed - now changed back.

Otherwise, I don't see anything significantly better/different from 1809.

I doubt I will roll back to 1809 just to get MS Games back - but one never knows.

Further updates, if any, as events warrant.

Jim.

Edit- MS games are back - just had to reinstall using "Win7GamesForWin10-Setup.exe".

I just did it through the Windows Insider program took about 30 minutes (ssd) because the iso I got through the Media Creation Tool wouldn't update with a usb drive attached because of a drive reassignment problem with some systems. So that was a catch 22. Build number is 18362.116 (1903)

I just got the same error with an upgrade for my WinBook, Have a HP pro tablet 10 EE G1 That will also have the same problem because it has a borked installation and can not upgrade online. The only access is USB. I will try a burned ISO with my USB DVD, but it will probably throw the same error because it will have a drive letter assigned. Hope they will fix this soon as promised.

Clearly I have not been spending enough time in forums.

I was under the impression that W10 updates happened automagically. Now I find that all three of our PCs are at version1803.

So:-

How do I go about triggering the updates?

Do I need to do 1809 or can I go direct to 1903?

If I go via USB (seems sensible with three machines to do), is a USB2 stick OK (I have several spares) or do I need USB3? (Australian sticks are expensive and start at 8gb)

I've downloaded both the Media Creation Tools via MajorGeeks.
