So you can download and update your computer to Windows 10 May 2020 Update

Windows Update

On May 27, Microsoft decided to release the update for the month of May for all Windows computer users: Windows 10 May 2020 Update (2004 operating system version). This version brings with it a multitude of new features, so it is quite likely that you want to get it on your computer.

The update in question is completely free if you already had a previous version of Windows 10 installed on your computer, which is why the update is highly recommended. However, being relatively recent, it may not install automatically on your computer, but instead you have to update it. For this reason, we are going to show you below how you can achieve this step by step.

How to update your computer to Windows 10 May 2020 Update step by step

To install the update in question there are two different methods, ruling out the option of completely reinstalling the operating system, for which you should download a copy of this version and install it on your computer. One of the possibilities to update is to take advantage of Windows Update, while if you prefer it or it doesn't work for you, you will be able to do it using the wizard provided by Microsoft.

Install the update through Windows Update

If you want to try to install this update in the fastest way, you can do it directly using the system's own update manager. For it, access the Windows 10 settings and, once inside, in the main menu, choose the option "Update and security".

You should go directly to the Windows Update settings, where an alert should appear at the bottom indicating that there are some optional updates available. In this case, the new version should appear under the name of "Feature update to Windows 10, version 2004". You just have to select the button that appears below so that it will take care of downloading and installing the new version as a normal system update. In some cases, it is also possible that the equipment is not supported and that it is advisable to wait.

Update your equipment using the Microsoft assistant

The previous option is quite simple. However, there are occasions when in practice it generates certain problems, since it does not always find the update it should in question, there are times when the download is blocked and a long history of circumstances that are gradually being solved, but for the moment they are still there and sometimes they can be quite annoying.

However, you shouldn't worry about it since Microsoft has a tool so you can update your computer directly to any version of Windows 10 available in a very simple way. To do this, first of all what you should do is download the official assistant, available from this link. Remember that it is an official Microsoft tool and that the link will take you directly to the download from their own servers without any kind of intermediary, all being safe.

Updating Windows 10 with this tool is quite simple. First of all, as soon as you open it, you must accept the security permissions and then connect to the internet to determine the latest version of Windows 10 available at the time, something that may take more or less depending on your connection. The first thing it will do is provide you with details about the build number and, if a newer one is available, the button with the text "Update now".

Likewise, you should bear in mind that in both cases the installation may take a long time. On the one hand, the files you download take up a lot of storage space, so depending on your Internet connection it may be a rather long process. And, on the other hand, when restarting, you should know that your computer will take much longer than to install, for example, a security update, although it is true time also varies quite a bit depending on the hardware.
