Microsoft is giving Windows 10 users more control over updates

Game Bar's Capture feature is also getting a new feature that lets you overlay text to your screenshots to turn your screenshots into memes and share them wherever you'd like. These are big feature updates, separate from the monthly security updates that Microsoft also rolls out.

We fixed an issue where a user's PC may get into a unbootable state after installing a Cumulative Update and then installing a optional feature-on-demand (FOD).

Starting with the upcoming Windows 10 May 2019 Update, users will be notified of a major update's availability, but will be able to put off its installation until the device they're using is close to no longer being supported in its current state. This will apply to all versions of Windows 10. Microsoft has stated that this will allow them to test the new update against a wider variety of PCs that are used by Windows Insiders in order to gather more feedback into any bugs or issues that may pop up. I'm an early adopter and tend to download updates right away, but I've also been annoyed several times when I found my computer performed an update when I'm in the middle of something important. When Windows 10 devices are at, or will soon reach, end of service, Windows update will continue to automatically initiate a feature update; keeping machines supported and receiving monthly updates is critical to device security and ecosystem health. New features include a Sandbox mode for Windows 10 Pro and Enterprise users, a new light mode that looks clean and modern, improvements to Start, Action Center, and the UI.

However, it is worth noting Microsoft itself recommends users move to a new PC with Windows 10 to ensure they can "take advantage of the latest hardware capabilities". For instance, in 2018, we got the Windows 10 April 2018 Update and the Windows 10 October 2018 Update.

To switch to the Release Preview ring, Insiders can go into the Windows Insider Settings and select it. It's free to join the beta-testing program.

The Windows Update system has been a topic of contention between users and Windows engineers for some time.

Windows Update displays when new feature updates are available separately.

If your system is eligible to update, it should begin downloading and installing.

Delaying the release for some additional testing is the right decision; most users, admins and companies would not mind, probably, if the testing would even take longer than that provided that the final release version is as stable as it can be.

The update is only available to Insiders running Windows 10 build 17763 or newer.
