Windows 10 is typically granted two substantial upgrades every year from Microsoft.
The May 2019 Update is the first to release this year and is most notable for the copious amount of new features it brings to the table.
One of the most subtle, but incredibly useful, comes from the ability to delete more pre-installed apps than ever before.
Users running the May 2019 Update are now able to rid of programmes such as Paint 3D, Groove Music and Calculator for instance.
In terms of aesthetics, the new Microsoft software introduces a new light theme that ensures bright white colours dominate the user interface.
The addition accompanies a dark mode that was already present on Windows 10.
Microsoft’s new software also introduces new programmes for users to take advantage of, the most notable being Windows Sandbox that is specifically engineered to test untrusted programmes.
Essentially, the app creates an isolated desktop environment for fans that can open potentially harmful programmes without having an adverse effect on the user’s actual desktop.
While the May 2019 Update has already been downloaded by a swathe of Windows 10 users, some may be having trouble getting it.
Microsoft recently detailed an incompatibility issue between the May 2019 Update and certain Intel drivers.
The firm explained if users are running an Intel Rapid Storage Technology (RST) driver version between 188.8.131.522 and 184.108.40.2063 they will be unable to install the fresh software.
However, the American tech giant provided a solution for the issue – updating the drivers in question to version 220.127.116.114 or newer.
Explaining the problem, Microsoft said: “Intel and Microsoft have found incompatibility issues with certain versions of the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST) drivers and the Windows 10 May 2019 Update.
“If your device has an Intel® RST driver version between 18.104.22.1682 and 22.214.171.1243 installed, it cannot install the May 2019 Update.
“Versions 126.96.36.1994 or later are compatible, and a device that has these drivers installed can install the Windows 10 May 2019 Update. For affected devices, the recommended version is 188.8.131.524.”
Updating drivers can be done through the manufacturer of a PC in question or by going to Intel’s site.
