Windows 10 May update prevents games from running in exclusive fullscreen mode

Microsoft has the Windows 10 19H2 build update scheduled for a November 2019 rollout. With the release month for Win 10 1909 fast approaching, the big M has released the 18363.418 update in October 2019. The software giant is rolling out the 18363.418 update to Windows Insiders in the Release Preview ring.

Microsoft’s Senior Program Manager announced the Windows 10 18363.418 update on the company’s blog. There Mr. Le Blanc stated: Today, we have released 19H2 Build 18363.418 to Windows Insiders who are on Build 18362.10024 and in the Release Preview ring. If you are on Build 18362.10024 and still in the Slow ring, you will *not* receive this update.

Users on the Slow ring will need to switch to Release Preview on the Windows Insider Program tab in Settings to get this update. To do so, click Settings on the Start menu. Select Update & Security and the Windows Insider Program tab in Settings. Thereafter, users can select Release Preview on the drop-down menu there.

Microsoft has confirmed that it is now finalizing the Windows 10 November 2019 Update. Mr. Le Blanc stated, We believe that Build 18363.418 is the final build and we will continue to improve the overall experience of 19H2 on customers’ PCs as part of our normal servicing cadence. Therefore, the 18363.418 update incorporates all the features for the 19H2 update. It also includes fixes applied by the recent KB4524147 security update.

Thus, the Windows 10 November 2019 Update is almost upon us. However, users shouldn’t expect too much from this update. Microsoft is releasing this update primarily to be a minor enhancement to the May 2019 Update that provides a minimal set of new features for the sake of performance tweaks.

The Windows 19H2 update won’t be much different from the 19H1 one before it. It will deliver some enhancements for notification management, a drop-down menu for File Explorer searches, and a few Start menu refinements. Users will also be able to set up calendar events by clicking dates in Windows 10 1909’s calendar view.

Thus, the Windows 10 November 2019 Update will be one of the most limited Win 10 build updates ever in terms of new features. Microsoft has not yet announced an official release date for that update, but it wil probably become generally available within the next few weeks during November 2019.
