Microsoft made the May 2020 update of Windows 10 publicly available. Developers already had access to the new update.

Microsoft has been rolling out more significant updates for the OS in phases for quite some time now, giving OEMs a chance to try out the latest features, followed by developers. After a few weeks, the update gets released to the general public.

There are no big surprises in the list of new features, but the update does come with some useful improvements. For example, it has become less cumbersome to link Bluetooth devices. Previously, users had to browse through countless settings, but now they can do so via the notification tab. It is also possible to automatically reopen more apps after a restart of the system.

For gamers, the new update for Windows 10 is also exciting, as the 19041-build is accompanied by several DirectX 12 Ultimate features and the ability to tweak the Xbox Game Bar. Third-party widgets can now be added, allowing users to personalize the game bar fully.

The May 2020 update of Windows 10 will be rolled out this week, but should be available immediately for users of version 1903 or version 1909 of the operating system.
