The first major update for Windows 10 has been released yesterday and it brings quite a few useful features and new options. Among the most important improvements we cite an updated Microsoft Edge, improved photos, better multitasking and more.

Microsoft has set up a special Windows 10 November update: FAQ page to bring answers to some popular questions that you might have. You should know that the update will automatically download and install when it’s available. However, ff you want to check for the update now, do the following:

  • Select the Start button
  • Select Settings > Update & security > Windows Update > Check for updates

If you’re not seeing the update, it should be available soon, so you just need to wait for a couple more hours, most likely. The download is about 3 GB, so you should make sure you’re not on a metered connection when downloading it.

You should know that after the update is installed, your settings will stay the same and you won’t lose any data. Once you’re done, your system should be running Windows 10 Version 1511. To confirm this, you need to select the Start button , then select Settings > System > About. A couple of important notes to take into account:

If it’s been less than 31 days since you upgraded to Windows 10, you won’t get the November update right away; this will allow you to go back to your previous version of Windows if you choose. After the 31 days have passed, your PC will automatically download the November update.

If you uninstalled the November update from your PC, you won’t be able to install it again from Windows Update. Instead, you’ll need to go to the Microsoft software download website and select Upgrade now to upgrade your PC to Windows 10 Version 1511, which includes the November update.

Furthermore, you should know that any update installed on your PC before the November update will no longer be listed in your update history. What other basic questions you have about this update? Leave your comment below and let us know if this has created any issues, as well.
