It's still included in Windows 10, but the company is putting all its efforts into the new Chromium-based version of Edge, which began rolling out to the general public earlier this year (after spending a year in beta).

When done downloading the feature update, the Update Assistant will state that the update is ready and prompt you to restart Windows to install it.

With the release of the Windows 10 May 2020 update Microsoft has also released their list of deprecated or removed features, and on this occasion, the list is much shorter than usual. And while there are a bunch of new features, Microsoft is also killing off a bunch of older features.

Cortana has been updated and enhanced in the Windows 10 May 2020 Update.

If you don't see the new Windows 10 version 2004 upgrade under "Update and Security" in the Settings app, don't worry. In addition, you can get a huge discount with our buy one, get one free offers, if you buy Office 2019/2016, you will get Windows 10 totally for free. If you'd like to restart right away, click "Restart now". You can also type in "Windows update" in the start menu and click "Check for updates". After you do, .you'll be able to see a handy little chart of your FPS over the past 60 seconds. But if you're feeling impatient and want instant gratification, here's how you can get the Windows 10 May 2020 update right now. You may have to wait weeks - or dare I say it - months before Microsoft offers you an upgrade on your PC.

The final method is to download a Windows 10 2004 ISO and burn it to a bootable USB drive. You'll save a lot of time later, as you won't have to then redownload and install all the updates that have come out since then. Better yet, Cortana's question-and-response window isn't attached to your Windows taskbar anymore.

Before using the steps below to perform a manual update, you should first consult the Windows 10 2004 Health Dashboard and make sure there are no known issues blocking the update.

That said, Cortana has been stripped of a lot of functionality from previous versions of Windows. You've lost the ability to control most of your smart home devices via Cortana, not to mention streaming music services and other third-party skills you might have previously integrated into the digital assistant.

This one's small, but handy: Visit Settings Accounts Sign-in options, and scroll down a bit until you see "Restart apps". [PC makers] can now include these apps in Windows images for cellular-enabled devices.
