Update to Windows 10 on University laptops/desktops

May 3rd, 2019

To ensure your version of Windows 10 stays in continued support from Microsoft, we released a feature update from Wednesday 17 April.

The update will take approximately 30 to 60 minutes to install once the restart has been started.

The update involved a notification requesting you to restart your computer — please do so when convenient. You can start the installation anytime by right clicking the green square icon and select ‘Restart Now’.

Please note, if you have pending system updates before Wednesday 17 April, you will need to restart your computer to install these first.

In most cases the update will be three versions ahead of the current installed version. You can read more about the updates and new features on the Windows blogs:

Service/software affected: University Windows 10 laptops and desktops

Users/areas affected: Users of devices running an older edition of Windows 10

Impact: Approximately 30 to 60 minutes for the update to install

Date & time: From Wednesday 17 April

Action: Please contact the IT Service Desk or Campus IT Support if you experience issues updating Windows 10.


If you have any questions, or require any support after the update, please contact the IT Service Desk.
