Windows 10 S May 2019 Update?
So I have had some security issues recently. I bought a new laptop PC specifically with windows 10 S. I see a lot of threads downplaying it’s functionality/usefulness - but for me, in this moment, the more secure the better. When I went to update my new laptop, it stopped updating at the 1809 windows update. Is there a 1903 windows update coming for S or is that only if I convert to windows 10 Home? I’d like to avoid conversion until/if I feel it truly necessary .. but would also like the latest windows features and updates. Any news/info? Thanks for any reply!
Inclusion for all disabilities 🤩💯✔
Many contributors on this platform recognise and applaud the 'Ease of Access' features on Windows 10. Microsoft teams are to be congratulated 👏 with a personal thank you for me. From my very latest experience helping another visually impaired User to use Word in particular the screen reader and Narrator, I have the impression (I could be wrong) that marketing/raising awareness to disabled users could and should be improved. By way of explanation, the other day, I was able to assist a colleague to create a simple Word document. Imagine please 😊 'Anne' sitting at her desktop with the landline telephone stuck to my ear and my colleague doing the same in her own home. Although it was a prolonged process, I was able to help her discover some of the basic features such 'read aloud' and Narrator. When I discussed this experience with a community group, some people that they were 'afraid of breaking their computers' and not being adventurous enough because they were unsure of what they were doing. Something about technophobia perhaps. I replied that they would have to hit their computers with a very heavy item to break them. I also mentioned that operating systems are usually reliable and have their internal routines to resolve faults/errors. One person said that computers are an enigma to him. I replied that it is an enigma to me at times 😊 🤣. But, there was a general sense from this conversation that computer technology was for the 'clever people' and those who had all their faculties. I disavowed that presumption with my colleagues/acquaintances. Quite strongly actually. But it has made me think about how we can change this 'perception'. So, I am challenging Microsoft (respectfully of course 🤩😊) to comprehensively engage with users who have disabilities ; raising their awareness of the opportunities that information technology affords. FAO Moderator - please do not hesitate to socialise this with MS colleagues. Many thanks all 🙏😊

Good Morning Moderator May I request that you forward this posting to the Insider Team responsible for restoring Narrator on my system. I am appreciative. In fact, I will go further, I am profoundly 🤗grateful. I ask that the team accept my comments in earnest. 🙏 I now sense that I have re-joined the world and my computer and I are 'One'. *Anne jumps up and down and waves arms like palm trees - she is very happy* 🌴🌴🌴 I will send the same feedback via the Insider Programme.
