Now that Microsoft has Windows 10 available to users worldwide, they have just met their release date for the first update.  Now this Windows 10 November Update, also known as Windows 10 Fall Update or Windows 10 Threshold 2, is a free update for notebooks, desktops, and 2-in-1s.  This is what is known about the Microsoft Windows 10 November Update Release Date, Updates, How to Download, What it Fixes, and How to Fix 44 Percent Marker Problem and More. 

According to Gotta Be Mobile, it is possible for users to download the Windows 10 November Update right now for PCs and tablets.  To obtain this update, all a Windows 10 user needs to do is check for updates through the Settings app beginning today and find the update, which should end with the number 10586. 

There isn't really much in the way of ground breaking features for the software update.  However, the Microsoft Windows Blog states that the improvements of the update include Performance, with a boot time nearly 30 percent faster than Windows 7 on the same device.  There will also be Microsoft Edge for improved performance and security, along with tab preview to see what is on a website before leaving the current website. 

There has also been an update to Cortana.  As the user can just scribble a note in the Cortana Notebook, and it will recognize the phone number, email address, and even physical address for reminders.  In addition to these improvements, there are also updates to Mail, Calendar, Photos, Groove, Xbox Store, OneNote, Solitaire, and a lot more.

The focus of the Windows 10 November Update is on business, and businesses can manage Windows 10 devices with the same tools as the ones to manage other devices.  It has been reported that the update installs "quickly and seamlessly", in most cases.

Members of the Windows Insider Program had to do a full operating system upgrade on their device, which isn't the case for normal users.  Members of the Insider program have also been reporting the November Update failing upon installation, and it is possible to disable getting new preview builds from Settings > Update and Security  > Advanced Options to successfully enable the update.

There is also a report from Windows Central saying that there is a bug that can prevent the Windows 10 November update from completing the installation.  This bug is specific, as the Windows 10 November Update will stop responding at the 44 percent marker. 

Apparently, some devices have a problem with an SD bus with an SD card inserted could be affecting the update.  Microsoft recommends that users remove an SD card from their computers before proceeding with the install. If users are using the SD card for more stage, Microsoft recommends using a USB storage device instead to perform the install. 

As for any other problems with the Windows 10 November Update, head to the Windows Central forums for help.
