The update is now being rolled out gradually to the general public. Users who would like to install the latest release can take action right now.
Well, in order to avoid the same problem with Windows 10 October 2018 Update (version 1809), Microsoft takes a measured and throttled approach to slowly roll out the feature update this time. And this post will show you how to download and install the Windows 10 May 2019 Update (version 1903). You can follow the instruction below to enjoy the updated features in this release.

Step 4. When the update is downloaded and ready to install, Windows will prompt you to restart your computer. Save your files and close all the windows you opened. Then select Restart now. If you are not ready to restart, select Schedule the restart and then pick a time to do it.
