    dear Sir
    in my enviornment i am doing windows update via a WSUS server .
    Most of my windows 10 machine is having version 1803 . D
    During covid pandamic we shutdown all the system from 2020 march 20.
    After restarting the system in june 1 no cumulative or security update is coming fror 1803 machines. other 1903 and 1909 machine getting regular updates along with server 2012 and 2016 throgh WSUS.
    Unfortunately I had stopped upgrade for a while in late 2019 and hence thies 1803 is not upgraded to higher version also. after restarting the system in june one 1607 machine got latest upgrade 20H2 also.
    please help me to overcome from this trap. Do i need to create Media by downloading iso from microsoft to upgrade to 1909 ? or which is the stable version most suitable to upgrade from 1803

      In your situation, the best way to go forward is to use the upgrade assistant. It will tell you if your PC hardware is compatible with the latest update of Windows 10. If it is, you can easily upgrade using other methods mentioned in our Windows 10 download article.

          I can confirm that dark mode is supported in Windows 10 20H2 but I’m not sure about 1909.

    can windows update assistant update my windows to version 1909 without taking me to version 2020? my pc has issues with updating the version saying “Your version of Windows has reached end of service. We recommend you update to the most recent version of Windows 10 to get the latest features and security improvements.” and cannot update any further….or what would you recommend given that I dont want to do a clean installation as it will affect my files and programs that i have purchased

      You will need to download the Windows 10 Version 1909 ISO and upgrade your OS from there. The update assistant will take you directly to the latest version of Windows.

      You can use Rufus which is simpler and Ventoy if you want to boot multiple ISOs from a single USB drive.

    5 GB, seriously??? How will I make bootable DVD for that? DVDs normally comes with 4.7 GB. Microsoft thinks that DVDs became old and made iso 5 GB. People do not want to always burn 5 gb to 8 gb pen drive as backup.

      yup that’s true. You’ll need an 8GB DVD to write this ISO to the DVD. It’s better to do it with a pen drive :-)

    I had purchased a copy of Win 10 (Home) retail version on 10 January 2017.

    I have updated regularly, and currently I have version 1809 (32-bit).

    When I try to update, I am getting the following message:

    “You’re currently running a version of Windows that’s nearing the end of service. We recommend you update to the most recent version of Windows 10 to get the latest features and security improvements.”

    However, I am not getting the option to update to version 1903 or 1909.

    I have a 32-bit installation at present, and want to reinstall to the 64-bit version.

    I have downloaded the English version from the direct download links from Microsoft provided by you: Windows 10 Version 1909 64-bit English (5.0 GiB, 68,734 hits)

    Can I do a reinstallation with my original Win 10 Home key?

    Basically, is the ISO I have downloaded okay for Win 10 home?

    Thank you.

      If you already have Windows 10 installed, the same product key will be used. The upgrade is free of cost. But if you have pirated copy of Windows, then the new Windows 10 Version 1909 will need activation with a valid product key.

          You can skip the product key screen. This will install Windows 10 as an unlimited trial. You can install the product key later when Windows is installed.

          If you upgrade from 1903 to 1909, it’s very small in size, around 500MB. I’m not sure about 1607 to 1909. My guess is that it will be around 2 to 3 GB.

      You simply have to download Windows 10 Version 1909 (the latest one at the moment) from the direct download links given in this article. Once you have installed Windows 10, it will ask you for a product key for activation. If you have a Windows 10 Pro product key, you can enter it and Windows 10 Pro will automatically be activated. If you have a Windows 10 Home license key, then Windows 10 Home edition will get activated. It really depends upon the product key rather than the ISO image. This ISO image contains all the editions except the enterprise one which can be downloaded from Windows 10 Enterprise download page.

    I am curious about one thing.
    To begin, I run the Dutch version. On my multy boot machine, an older HP sff, I run both the ‘regular’ Pro version as well as the Pro N version.
    Strangely enough the November (1909) updat on the regular Pro ran without problems but on the N set it tries and tries and tries. Keeps on telling the update in available, but will not finish.
    Anyone got a clue or a workaround?

      The update is still rolling out slowly. It’ll be available to you in some time. Don’t worry. If you want to upgrade right now, you can download the ISO file and run the installer. It will automatically upgrade your version of Windows to Version 1909.

    Great work. The links work perfectly and point to the same ISO file which is hosted at Microsoft. One thing I must say is that when I have upgraded to the version 1909, and I look at Windows Updates history, I see the following added:
    Feature Update to Windows 10 Version 1909 via Enablement Package (KB4517245)

    Is this the actual update file? If I uninstall this, will this uninstall Windows 10 Version 1909?
