Windows 10 May 2019 Update is seemingly rolling out pretty slowly in the early stages - with Microsoft being understandably cautious and keen not to repeat any October 20 Update-style nightmare - and perhaps as a result of this, Microsoft has decided to notify users when their PC isn't ready for that update.
Normally, if your PC isn't ripe for a feature update yet, and contains been blocked due to compatibility difficulties with your hardware components or even the software you're running, you simply won't hear anything about the upgrade.
And perhaps Microsoft has realized that this might lead to some people scratching their heads, wondering what on earth might be going on by having an update, especially in the case of a slow-paced rollout, because the May 2019 Update seems to be.
So now, at least on some machines (reported by Windows Latest), whenever you try looking in the Windows Update menu, you receive a message telling you that the device isn't quite ready for that latest feature update yet. There's also a connect to Microsoft's support site for more info, in the event you want it.
There is also a similar message through the Update Assistant tool in Windows 10, too.
This can be a useful additional touch to help keep people informed about where their machine stands with regards to the latest upgrade, and it also helps notch in the level of transparency, something which Microsoft is working to do on a broader level with regards to these major updates (with moves like an update health dashboard).
While Microsoft has been going slow with deploying the May 2019 Update, things might be accelerating now, because the company looks to make the upgrade to any PCs still running the April 20 Update. And that's quite a number of machines, since the problematic October 20 Update wasn't provided to nearly all users, and many folks are now simply skipping straight over it (as previously predicted).
Another relatively minor but interesting tweak for Windows 10 was highlighted by Bleeping Computer, although in this case, it's a possible alternation in the preview form of the OS.
It seems that users will get the choice to rename virtual desktops later on, based on the proven fact that Albacore - a Twitter user who often uncovers interesting Windows titbits, like big changes visiting Cortana - spotted a concealed feature in the latest preview build for Windows 10 20H1 (the update scheduled to land within the first half of 2020).
So rather than virtual desktops simply being called Desktop 1, Desktop 2, and so forth, you will be able to rename them to some thing meaningful, which is definitely a good touch.
As we mentioned, though, this can be a hidden alternation in the backdrop with the preview build, and the feature continues to be in development: it won't yet save the names of the rechristened virtual desktops, for example.
What this means is it could just be Microsoft playing around and testing the feature, so it may later abandon, there aren't any guarantees here. Still, it appears as though a comparatively easy switch to implement, and we see no reason why it might be ditched. Keep the fingers crossed if you're a regular virtual desktop user who would appreciate this capability.
