Microsoft begins rolling out today, November 12, its first major update to Windows 10 -- the set of features officially called the "November Update," and codenamed "Threshold 2."

The update, Build 10586 (also known as Version 1511, for November 2015) is the test build for PCs and tablets which Microsoft released to its Windows Insider testers last week. It will be available to existing Windows 10 users as a Cumulative Update via Windows Update starting today. It also will be available as of today to Windows 7 and 8.1 customers who have not yet upgraded to the RTM version of Windows 10 that Microsoft released in late July.

The November update includes a number of updates to Cortana, Microsoft's Edge browser, and other Windows 10 interface elements. It also includes support for the Windows 10 Store for Business and the bulk of the management pieces required by business users who may want to take advantage of Microsoft's Windows Update for Business service.

Am I right in saying Threshold 2 will be another 4GB download and it will be pushed as an automatic update? People with data caps are not going to be happy.

Most likely an automatic update, yes, since I can see Treshold being seen as an "Important" update as well.

It won't be pushed on a connection that's marked as metered. Folks will have time to go to a friend's house to download it. Of course, in regions where everyone is metered, that could be a problem.

 

I haven't, yet, gotten the update on my Pro x64 desktop. My laptop, Home x64, downloaded it successfully, but it failed to install. I've been watching the thread on Ten Forums, and I am not alone. Might try the Media Creation Tool, tomorrow, or I might wait a bit to see why the installs are failing.

I just installed a bunch of updates (probably the ones from Patch Tuesday), but the November update isn't in it yet. And I'm sure it'll unlock Cortana for my region (because apparently Cortana is available in Canada now, but French Canada, aka Québec, I don't know).

Hobbled Cortana arrives in Canada, Australia, Japan, and India

Have you also noticed while there how many posts there are and how many of those posts actually go unanswered, and of those few answered had an actual workable solution?  The last time I went I actually looked at 15 pages and only about 10% got replys at all.  Kinda gives the impression Microsoft really does not want to hear about our problems we may have.

They also are probably getting a stream of telemetry data letting them know about said problems.  How quickly fixes will be forthcoming is another issue altogether.  I just applied the latest update to my old Dell Inspiron 1720 laptop that's running Win10 Pro 32-bit.  Interestingly enough, it has somehow hosed my keyboard, as a select collection of keys on the right side, 'i' and '8' among a couple others, suddenly do not work.  I just said in another post that woe be unto Microsoft if this first major update to Win10 starts screwing up keyboards!!

I'm not doing anything today. High winds, big trees, and a battery on life-support don't make for a good day to upgrade. Yet another reason for MS not to push upgrades without warning.

 

I read that some folks had their settings changed with the upgrade. Maybe your keyboard issue is just a settings glitch? No, I don't think so, either...

Sorry I did not know that I always got there thru Microsoft support thought it was one of their community forums. My bad.  Is this the same forum as yours you go to? http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-networking?sort=lastreplydate&dir=desc&tab=threads&status=all&mod=&modAge=&advFil=&postedAfter=&postedBefore=&threadType=all&tm=1444624133315&auth=1

It looks like I didn't receive the update yet. Still waiting for it. I might receive it tomorrow or on Sunday.
