  • What we know about the Win10 version 1909 upgrade: Easily managed by most; tricky for some

    The details are hairy, but the bottom line is pretty simple.

    If you start from Win10 1903, you have complete control over when you’re upgraded to Win10 1909. Remarkably, that’s true for both Home and Pro (and Enterprise and Education) versions.

    If you start from Win10 1809 Pro, the details are a bit more difficult but in the end you, too, have easy control over the upgrade.

    If you start from Win10 1809 Home, life’s considerably trickier. You’re probably better off upgrading to 1903 — and avoid clicking “Check for updates.”
