But there’s something never before coming up with the update will specifically call out the feature release, and allow users to delay it—and any update, including security patches—for up to 35 days. Even better, Windows won’t decide when to install updates—you will, with an exception or two.
Microsoft has two goals for the May 2019 Update: put more update control in the hands of users, and ensure a stable, bug-free release.
Let’s take a look at what’s new and coming with Windows 10 May 2019 Update.
There are many such as Windows 10 Reserve Storage, Light theme, Cortana and Search being Separated and my favorite introduction of Clipboard. Yes I love it and you would also once you start using it.
Windows 10 April 2019 Update brings a new light theme experience to Windows 10. You can make the changes by going to setting, personalization then colors and selecting light from drop down menu.
Windows 10 Settings Top Banner
Another changes this update brings is, it introduces a new banner to Windows 10 settings home page. From this banner itself you can have a look at the account you are using on your system, manage your one drive, your phone liked to your pc as well as have a glace at your pending windows updates.
Windows 10 Reserved Storage
Microsoft is about to bring Windows 10 Reserve Storage with Windows 10 April 2019 Update.

Cortana and Search Separation –
Yes coming through this build we see Cortana and search separated with each other and Cortana is still available on the left corner along side search option. The search provides option to search for files, contacts or even web search can be performed from here only.
There are no changes coming to features or UI or Cortana it’s still the same. Actually I would love it to be removed from there and once on speaks hey Cortana or presses Hot Key Windows + C opens up Cortana.
Change the brightness of your laptop’s display using Quick Action Slider
Coming with this update you will be able to changes brightness directly from your quick action slider under action center. Slide it around and you brightness with update as you want, I prefer it to be around 70.
Customize Quick Actions from the Action Center
You can also customize your quick actions from the action center you can right click and select edit or go to all setting and look for edit quick actions from there you select edit quick actions.
New Desktop or Multiple Desktops
You may also know it or not but under timeline there is a feature to have multiple desktops, its really useful as you can have different tabs, files or applications open in one desktop and no one will be able to see what you are doing under your second desktop.. Really Cool..
One of the most liked feature, Actually I love it and thanks Microsoft for bringing this. You can access multiple copied item such as pictures, text as well and this is what I love. Just click hotkeys Windows + V and Clipboard will open up with your history of texts or images you have copied.
It also cross device yes under settings system you can go to clipboard from there you can toggle on Sync Across devices this will enable cross device Clipboard.
