Upcoming Windows 10 Version Update and New Notification Process

Update your Windows Device

OIT will be updating all Windows 10 operating systems on managed devices to version 1909.

Currently, this update is opt-in and will be mandatory for all users starting on February 27, 2020. After February 27, users will be alerted via Software Center pop-up notification and the update will run automatically. Once the update is complete, it may take users up to 45 minutes to restart their devices. It is critical for users to be aware of the time commitment associated with this update.

If you would like to update your device now, view the instructions at z.umn.edu/windows10update.

New Process for Future Updates

In the past, users have been notified via email about the update. For future updates, users will not receive email reminders from OIT. Instead, they will see a web pop-up when a branch update becomes available. The pop-up will provide update instructions and a link to more information about Windows updates.

If you have any questions or need to request an exception, contact Technology Help.
