Windows 10 October 2018 Update is Out for Download

The Windows 10 October 2018 Update has arrived after months of internal and beta testing.

Its immediate release date was announced during an event in which the Surface Pro 6 and the Surface Laptop 2 went official.

The most notable features for the Windows 10 October 2018 Update include a cloud-based clipboard, redesigned screenshotting, a dark theme for File Explorer, and Edge enhancements. Although you might pick up on some visual tweaks, the upgrade isn’t ushering in anything dramatic for the user interface.

Microsoft confirmed that, while putting the software update for manual installation today, it’ll begin automatically arriving early next week. Nearly 700 million devices are eligible for the system-level upgrade. All of it is optional, but Microsoft will do its best to push users toward downloading and installing for new features and improvements.

Anyone who’s seeking the upgrade will spot it as version 1809. If you have a Windows 10 machine, jump into the Windows Update menu.
