Report: First major Windows 10 update coming early November

Windows 10 has been available for nearly three months, so it’s no surprise a big update may be on the way.

A new report suggests the new big Windows 10 upgrade, codenamed Threshold 2, will arrive in November.

That’s according to technology analyst Paul Thurrott, who cites a “trusted source” for his early access information.

The claim is also corroborated by a separate report on The Verge, which suggests the update will land in the first week of next month.

The update is alleged to contain “a number of fixes and UI changes” that were originally intended for the final version of Windows 10.

According to the report, these include: “coloured title bars for desktop apps, improved context menus, and an extra column of Live Tiles for the Start menu”.

Thurrott’s report suggests the official name for the new software version will be “Windows 10 Fall Update”, and will be identified as version 1511.

There’s no prerequisite required for upgrading to the new software; if you’re coming from Windows 7 or 8.1, you’ll move straight to the Fall Update.
