Query re version of Windows 10

  MPN1A 18:37 21 Apr 2019

I've just bought a new computer (Acer C22 with W10 Home) and I see that W10 is version 1803. I checked for updates but got nothing except three updates for 1803. Shouldn't all computers now be at 1809?

Yes you should be on V1809 Keep trying to do a manual update and it might finally work.

Might as well wait for the May update 1905

I would go along with FB's advice as 10th May is not that long to wait.

Most Acers are sold through Retailers, which will mean that it has been on the shelf for a while.

Relax: In my opinion, getting 1803 up to speed would be the safest way to accept anyway. I don't doubt that it will download the next batch (1809) in a few weeks time. Is there any real rush

I will not be updating on the 10th May. Give it at least a couple of weeks for any bugs to surface. Set the internet connection to "metered" to enforce the delay as MS's recent form, with regard to serious bugs in major Windows updates, is not good.

Thanks all. I will just wait and see what MS comes up with. My use is such that I don't see much difference between versions except the occasional security feature. (Apologies to FE: I should really have put this in the Windows Help forum.)
