Microsoft has made available feature update to Windows 10 version 1903, may 2019 update for everyone. This is the seventh major update since Windows 10 was first released in 2015. With regular updates and improvements windows 10 getting better and better and Of course the latest Windows 10 May 2019 update v1903 also brings several new features and improvements. Here is a look at a few of the best new features of Windows 10 1903.
Brand New Light Theme For Windows 10
One of the most visual new features you will find in the latest Windows 1903 is the new “Light Theme” that gives Windows a clean and, well, light look and feel.
- Turning on the new theme isn’t exactly where you’d think it is. To enable it,
- head to Settings > Personalization > Colors
- choose “Light” from the dropdown menu under the “Choose your color” option.
One of the best features of Windows 10 1903 (Pro, Enterprise, and Education editions only) is its built-in virtualization platform. Microsoft has introduced a new Windows Sandbox, a simple way to instantly create a pristine virtual machine, isolated from your main PC, where you can test a program or visit a suspicious website, risk-free. Close the Sandbox and every trace vanishes instantly. This feature is much easier than setting up a virtual machine that takes time and system resources.

Cortana and Search are now two separate features
Yet another significate change with Windows version 1903 Cortana and Search now two separate features with separate settings, with the latter focusing on voice input and personal assistant tasks. If you prefer not to use Cortana, you can remove the button from the taskbar. And The Search experience has been updated with a more elegant and useful landing page.
In addition to being separate from Cortana and getting a UI overhaul, Windows Search has also gained an “Enhanced” mode. Starting with 1903 you can turn it on, and it will search across all folders and connected drives. go to Settings > Search > Searching Windows, where you’ll find a new Enhanced option that indexes your entire PC.
Set up a Microsoft account with a phone number
This version introduces support for Microsoft accounts based on a phone number, with no email address required. In theory, you can create one of these accounts on a mobile device, without a password, and then use that account on a Windows 10 PC with Windows Hello (face, fingerprint, or PIN) to sign in with minimal effort. I’m looking forward to seeing this feature evolve.
Uninstall more in-box apps
In previous Windows 10 versions, only some of the—Microsoft Solitaire Collection, My Office (renamed to Office in 19H1), OneNote, Print 3D, Skype, Tips, and Weather—could be fully uninstalled without resorting to complicated PowerShell-based trickery. But in 19H1, Microsoft has dramatically expanded the list of in-box apps that the user can uninstall. So the list now includes the following, too: 3D Viewer, Calculator, Calendar, Groove Music, Mail, Movies & TV, Paint 3D, Snip & Sketch, Sticky Notes, and Voice Recorder.
Snip a window to the Clipboard
The Snip & Sketch app is, slowly but surely, taking over many of the functions previously owned by the legacy Snipping Tool. In this update, it adds the much-needed capability to capture windows rather than just a full screen or an arbitrary rectangle.
This version adds a drag-and-drop font installed at the top of the Settings > Personalization > Fonts page. It’s almost too easy to use, in fact; the only way you’ll know the operation succeeded is when you see the font’s preview appear in the list.
Windows 10 Home users now “Pause updates for 7 days”
the latest Windows 10 1903 now reserves a certain amount of storage (7GB) for the operating system for use by Windows updates, applications, temporary files, and system caches.
