They say knowing the name of something gives you some power over it, and if that is true, we have become just a bit more powerful in dealing with the next major version of Windows 10.

So far the enigmatically named Windows 10 19H1 only promised vaguely to be delivered sometime in the first half of the year (H1), but now the latest version of Powershell has revealed what Microsoft is officially calling the update, which is unsurprisingly the Windows 10 April 2019 Update, as can be seen in the screenshot above.

While not as fancy as the Creators or Anniversary Update, it does remain faithful to the naming convention for the last two versions, the April 2018 and October 2018 update.

While it may appear we now know when the update will be delivered, we do not have think back very far to the actual delivery of the October 2018 update, which is still trickling out in 2019.

The Windows 10 April 2019 Update will include a number of relatively minor improvements to the Windows Shell, such as the new Light Theme, and will decouple Cortana from Search. The Update appears to be less ambitious than earlier ones, which will hopefully result in a less bumpy release.
