Microsoft Windows 10 May 2020 Update now available with Cortana updates

The Windows 10 May 2020 Update is finally here, Microsoft says, meaning that users can download it now. Eventually, it will be pushed to PCs as a regular update.

Microsoft released a final version of the update to testers last month, and everyone on Windows 10 can get access to the May 2020 Update through Windows Update today.

The biggest change to the May 2020 Update is that it includes the Windows Subsystem for Linux 2 (WSL 2), with a custom-built Linux kernel. This Linux integration in Windows 10 will greatly improve the performance of Microsoft’s Linux subsystem in Windows.

Microsoft is also promising to update this kernel through Windows Update, and it will be open source so developers can create their own WSL kernel and contribute changes.

According to Microsoft, if users want the Windows 10 May 2020 Update right now, they can open Windows Update settings (Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update) and click the Check for Updates button.

If the update appears, users can then click the Download and Install button to install it. If they don’t see this button, there’s probably a reason. Microsoft scans device hardware, and won’t offer the update if it knows there’s an existing workaround that it’s trying to solve.

New Feature in Microsoft Windows 10 May 2020 Update

The May 2020 Update also includes some big Cortana improvements. Cortana can now be undocked from the Windows 10 taskbar, and it includes the ability to choose between typing or talking to the digital assistant. This includes tweaks to the overall Cortana interface to make it more conversational, and Microsoft has also added quick searches to the search home interface with this latest update. These include quick access to weather, news, today in history, and new movies.
