Windows 10’s May 2019 Update version 1903 will be available toward the end of May. But what if you don’t want to wait that long and are eager to try out the new features sooner? You’ll be happy to know that there is a way to install the May 2019 update in April.

In this article, we will show you how to install the May 2019 Update using the Windows Insider Program before the official release date.

How to install the May 2019 Update using Windows Insider Program?

The Windows Insider Program has been created to provide pre-releases of Windows to get feedback from early adopters. While this option is typically used by developers, any user can use the Windows Insider Program to get new Windows updates before the official release.

However, before you proceed with installing the update, note that making any changes to the current installation of Windows 10 that you are running on your PC can lead to system problems and data loss. It is, thus, strongly recommended that you back up your data before you install the new update using the Windows Insider Program.

When you are ready to download the May 2019 Windows 10 update 1903 version, follow these steps:

  • Go to Settings.
  • Select Update & Security.
  • Choose Windows Insider Program.
  • Press the Get Started button.
  • Click Link an account.
  • From the list, select your current Microsoft account — or another Microsoft account if you prefer.
  • Press the Continue button.
  • You will see a new window asking you, “What kind of content would you like to receive?” Choose Just fixes, apps and drivers.

Alternatively, you can force install the update by navigating to Settings>Update & Security>Windows Update and selecting Check for Updates.

How to remove your device from the Windows Insider Program

Once you have successfully installed the May 2019 update, you may want to stop receiving pre-releases. If this is the case, you will need to remove your PC from the Windows Insider Program. Here’s how to do that:

  • Go to Settings.
  • Click Update & Security.
  • Select Windows Insider Program.
  • At the bottom of the page, you will see the “Stop getting preview builds” option. Toggle it off.

Now, that you have toggled off the option to receive pre-releases, you will only get official updates as long as you keep the automatic update option enabled.

In order to keep your system running smoothly — and this is especially important if you want to experiment with pre-releases — it is recommended that you have a reliable anti-virus program installed on your PC. Auslogics Anti-Malware will keep your system free of malicious items and run regular virus scans. It can also run alongside your main anti-virus with no compatibility issues.
