Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB4505903 Brings 20H1 Feature to Version 1903

Microsoft could bring a feature originally developed for Windows 10 20H1 to the latest stable build of the operating system.

A bunch of changes to Windows Ink Workspace were announced as part of Windows 10 build 18912, with Microsoft explaining that it’s redesigning the UI to improve usability.

“Windows Ink Workspace is smaller with a direct link to our Microsoft Whiteboard app, providing you with rich ideation and collaboration capabilities. If you used Sketchpad, don’t worry. We saved the sketch you were working on (in your Pictures folder). In addition, the Windows Ink Workspace allows you to quickly capture your screen and annotate it with the improved Snip and Sketch app. We heard your feedback and we have streamlined the Windows Ink Workspace for you,” Dona Sarkar, head of the Windows Insider program, explained.

Windows 10 20H1 due in the spring

While Windows 10 20H1 is projected to be released in the spring of 2020 with these Windows Ink Workspace improvements built-in, it now looks like the same refinements could make their way to Windows 10 version 1903 as well.

Windows 10 version 1903, or May 2019 Update, is the latest stable release of Windows 10.

Microsoft has reportedly started testing the same Windows Ink Workspace improvements on Windows 10 version 1903 with the release of cumulative update KB4505903, which was pushed to insiders in the Release Preview ring last week.

The software giant is yet to confirm that it’s bringing these improvements to Windows 10 version 1903 too.

In the meantime, we should still wait for an official announcement, as the Release Preview ring is used by Microsoft for testing purposes, so there’s a small chance that the company can always remove the new Windows Ink Workspace tweaks from the next cumulative update for production devices.
