Windows 10 version update to 1909

As Microsoft continues to provide updates and enhancements to Windows 10 through new versions, support for older versions will end.  Currently, any Windows 10 version lower than 1909 will no longer be supported effective May 11th, 2021.


The most recent version of Windows 10 will be available via the Software Center on the laptop. Software Center is part of our management system that allows ITS to deliver software to your computer. You can find Software Center by clicking your Windows (Start) button and typing “Software Center” (no quotes). You can initiate the 1909 update when your schedule allows. Meaning; you can click to install as you leave for the day, before you go to lunch, or when you have up to 45 minutes that you can be without your computer.


Important information and steps are outlined below.


If you have any questions or need assistance, contact the Help Desk.


Important to remember:

  • Software Center updates will not replace standard Windows Updates. Your copy of Windows will still update monthly after our maintenance, along with any other pending updates.
  • You must be on campus to use this method.
  • 1909 Update will need to be completed on your computer by May 21, 2021. If the update is not completed by then, ITS will automatically trigger the Feature Update using Software Center during the monthly maintenance window. If the laptop is off campus during this time, it will be updated when you return to campus.
