Windows 10 November 2019 Update (also known as version 1909 or "19H2") is an update for Windows 10 which was released on 12 November 2019. Unlike all other prior feature updates, it was released in the form of a cumulative update for Windows 10 May 2019 Update.

New features[edit | edit source]

This version does not differ much from its predecessor, as it was released as a cumulative Update for version 1903. These changes are also available in the May 2019 Update, but they are disabled there.[1]

  • The left column of the Start menu (which includes the Sign out and Shut down options) now expands automatically when hovering over it.
  • Search enhancements in File Explorer:
    • The Search bar now shows a list of matches instead of switching to the "Search results" page to show matches there. The user however can still switch to the page by pressing the Enter key.
    • Due to this, the Address and Search bar of File Explorer including the buttons located there are larger than previously.
  • Added ability for third-party digital assistants to be used on the lock screen.
  • Added ability to create an event from the calendar flyout on the taskbar (Calendar app needs to be installed for this to work).
  • Improvements to notification settings.
  • Added the "Manage notifications" link to the Action Center which takes the user to the “Notifications & actions” page in Settings.
  • Added ability for Narrator to detect the state and location of the FN key on keyboards.
