Highlights of Windows 10 November 2019 Update

  1. Enhanced Microsoft Edge web browser experience.
  2. Introduction of a new button “Manage notifications” to the top of Action Center that launches the main “Notifications & actions” Settings page. The new “Reserved Storage” feature through which, some disk space will be reserved to be used for updates, apps, temporary files, and system caches, to ensure that critical OS functions always have access to disk space.
  3. Notifications settings under Settings > System > Notifications will now default to sorting senders of notification by most recently shown notification, rather than senders’ names. This makes it easier to find and configure frequent and recent senders. A new setting is also available to turn off notification alert tune.
  4. The navigation pane on the Start menu now expands when you hover over it, to let you know where the click action may lead you.
  5. Options to configure and turn off notifications from an app/website are also shown right on the notification, both as a banner and in Action Center.
  6. Added the ability for Narrator and other assistive technologies to read and learn where the Fn (function) key is located on the keyboard and what its current status is, locked or unlocked.
  7. Updated the search box in File Explorer powered by Windows Search. This change will help integrate OneDrive content online with the traditional indexed results.
  8. Enabled the ability for enterprises to supplement Windows 10 in Secure Mode policy to allow traditional Win32 (desktop) apps from Microsoft Intune.
  9. Enabled Windows Defender Credential Guard for ARM64 devices, for additional protection against credential theft for enterprises deploying ARM64 devices in the organizations.
