Microsoft has moved the company's upcoming new feature update for the Windows 10 operating system, the May 2019 update, to the release preview ring today.
The company announced a few days ago that it would change the usual process of distributing feature updates directly to Windows 10 computers. Instead of making the update available immediately, Microsoft has decided to retest it in the Release Preview Ring.
The Release Preview is one of the available Windows Insider rings. the other rings are Skip Ahead, Fast Ring and Slow Ring, which differ in the frequency and timeliness of the builds.
The release preview release marks the last step in the development process. Microsoft plans to release the update for May 201
The logic for updating features will change with the release of the May 2019 update. Windows administrators who did not want their devices to be automatically updated for new feature updates had to postpone updates or change the update behavior to avoid this, and never manually click Check for Updates.

Administrators wishing to use the May 2019 update for a test drive can do so. All you have to do is connect the Insider program and the Release Preview ring on a Windows 10 computer.
How to do this:
- Enter an address by email or by creating a new Microsoft account in the Windows Insider program on this Web page.
- Use Windows I to open the Settings application.
- Go to Update & Security> Windows Insider Program. Note that the Windows Insider program only appears if you are logged in with an administrator account.
- On the Windows Insider Program page, select Getting Started.
- You are asked to link a Microsoft account or an Azure Active Directory account that was a member of the Windows Insider program.
- Select "Fixes, apps, and drivers only" when asked what kind of content you want to receive.
You can verify that the PC has joined the Release Preview Ring by reopening the Windows Insider Program page in App Settings. It should be "Only fixes, apps and drivers" under "What kind of content do you want to receive?" And a button for "Stop Insider Preview Builds" will be displayed.
You must perform a manual update search to receive updates from the May 2019 update. In the Settings application, go to Windows Update and click Check for Updates. The PC should retrieve the new feature update and download it to the system.
Microsoft has done the right thing here. The company must receive the update for May 2019 for the first time after the flawed version of Windows 10 version 1809. If you put it in the release preview ring for a month, you should iron out any additional bugs that would otherwise be overlooked. It remains to be seen whether this will be enough to create a build for release that does not contain stopper errors.
