Microsoft has published the November 2015 Update for Windows 10, which brings it to the logical version number: 1511. It is not available to everyone though. The update is apparently being rolled out to users slowly, and manually pressing “Check for updates” will not fix it either. I've been doing that all day and still haven't got it. Those who want to receive it before Windows Update graces you with its existence will apparently need to either download the ISOs, or use the Windows 10 update tool. It was designed to bring Windows 7 and Windows 8.x to Windows 10, but it (apparently) can also be used on older versions of Windows 10 to update them to newer, public versions. It might remove the ability to go back in case of problems though, so be careful.
The update itself shouldn't be too surprising if you have been following our periodic check-up with the Windows Insider program. This is essentially the most recent build, although it apparently is installed without the big in-place upgrade process (although I have yet to do it myself, as stated above).
And, of course, WinBeta did a video walkthrough that highlighted the visible differences between July and November. I guess that's something to watch while you continually click “Check for Updates”. Or not.
Note that if you have only recently installed Windows 10, Microsoft will not push the new version to you just yet. They do not want the new build overwriting the image to bring you back to Windows 7 or 8.x, so they are waiting for it to expire.
Updated, Seems alright.
Although I don’t appreciate Windows 10 removing a program on it’s own just because it’s not compatible with latest update!
Found out after the installation, Not before it.
I’ll decide what is on my pc wether it works or not Microsoft.
Program it removed was cpuid , Not catastrophic but still.
Edge tab previews is pretty good, But still a useless browser until we get extension support.
And what was that program?
And what was that program?
That happened to me too, it
That happened to me too, it removed CPUz. As far as I know that was the only thing that I got a popup about saying it removed. Who knows what else it removed without telling me.
There will be more things
There will be more things surreptitiously removed as the M$ windows 10 iron curtain slowly closes. Just wait for more removing without notice for all that are foolish enough to install 10 and agree to M$’s draconian EULA. As time goes on more and more software will become “incompatible” with windows 10, enforcing more and more dependency on M$’s ecosystem and services. For those that have given over control of their hardware to M$’s 10 OS, expect any freedoms to be summarily removed gradually and insidiously while M$’s spin doctors lull the foolish into a false sense of security. Enjoy your indentured servitude, you agreed to the Terms and Conditions!
All you hardware are belong to M$! Big Redmond knows all of you secrets!
No OS is completely safe from
No OS is completely safe from spying on you or being backdoored. Sticking with Win 7 or 8 aren’t safe either as those OS’s are being upgraded to hoover up your data as well.
And I think this goes for a lot of people, I don’t have the time to try and get the apps I have on Windows to work well in Linux or Unix. I don’t have the time to try and learn an alternative app on Linux or Unix that does the same thing that a Windows app does.
Even as I type this, there are people who enjoy picking apart Windows to figure out how to block all the hoovering and then tell the rest of us how to implement it.
It sucks, but for the sake of convenience and time, I have to stick with windows for now.
My windows 7 only gets
My windows 7 only gets security updates, those other updates are hidden by me! So it’s 7 until 2020, with 7 being dual booted with Linux Mint. It’s time to ditch M$ and all the other monopoly companies, and get away from those that are turning PC/Laptops into appliances. My laptops will last years, and the SOCs in them are all more powerful than Intel’s gimped down Ultrabook SKUs. AMD better not be tying its fortunes up with only M$ and Windows 10, because that will surely make AMD go out of business.
AMD needs to look at getting its APU, and GPU, SKUs working on Linux(Steam OS, and other Linux distros) because 7 is the last windows OS for me, before I move to Linux. I do not have a need for any new Intel SKUs, as my laptops all have Intel’s full laptop NON Ultrabook gimped SOCs, so I’ll be looking for new AMD SKUs that are in PC/Laptops with a Linux based OS, and Vulkan will be the graphics API for me. AMD will have the better Graphics solutions for APUs, and with Zen on the way, I’ll have plenty of time left on my older laptops to see me through Zen’s release and adoption by some of the Linux OS based laptop OEMs! To Hell with the ad driven spyware infested M$ OS options after 7, and the same goes for any PC/Laptop/Tablet makers products that are tied only to M$’s ecosystem. All of the software that I use runs fine under windows 7, and all of the software that I use runs fine under Linux, so let the transition away from M$ and Intel begin with Zen and hopefully Zen APUs on Linux based PCs/laptops.
Is there a list anywhere of
Is there a list anywhere of which apps/programs will be removed, when installing the fall update? This seems like something that people should be informed of ahead of time.
Fixed autohide bug that used
Fixed autohide bug that used to effect the taskbar for me. Works like it should now
Installed it. It is great.
Installed it. It is great. Now W10 seems less Beta ish feels a bit faster too. There is still work to be done here and there. The UI elements are still not consistent. Edge needs a lot of work to replace Chrome for me.
I am still using the inside
I am still using the inside version and it does show me the option to download Windows 10 Pro, 1511, 10586.
I am unsure if I want to turn my Windows 7 key, to a Windows 10 key. Anyway I still have plenty of time for this, I think.
It doesn’t turn your W7 key
It doesn’t turn your W7 key into a W10 key – you get a W10 key gratis. You can reinstall W7 with your W7 key afterward if you want to.
The last time I checked, you
The last time I checked, you lose the Win7 key after those 30 days period you have to roll back. That way you can’t install a new shiny Windows 10 OS is PC B and keep your Windows 7 in PC A.

I’m not logged into insider and have “Upgrade to Windows 10 Pro, version 1511, 10586.” in WinX update
its pretty much like sp1
its pretty much like sp1 update.
Other than the update
Other than the update removing a program without asking if it was ok to do so, the only complaint I’ve had so far is the amount of time it took to do the update. I’ve got a fairly decent pc, and it literally took longer for this update to get installed, than it did to install the OS itself!
Well you clicked agree to
Well you clicked agree to that EULA, and M$ will have your first born! And M$ will name the child BOB, and BOB will do M$’s bidding, all under Cortana’s watchful eyes! BOB will serve its masters at M$, and so WILL You, and BOB will see to it that you DO follow your M$ Masters’ every command!
Does edge actually work with
Does edge actually work with SharePoint yet for essential things like drag and drop? Fingers crossed but I’m betting it will still be “Coming Soon™”
I downloaded windows 10 pro
I downloaded windows 10 pro version 1511 build 10586.3 on Nov. 11, 2015. Used Rufus to create a bootable USB drive.
Ran setup and clicked “I do not have a product key”. Created a new partition and installed this iso. The installation was very easy compared to build 10240.
Build 10586.3 is running without any major problems. Now I am getting event id error 41. There is a solution of this problem:
W10 build 10586.3 is very promising. I need to run it for the next 60 to 90 days and test the stability of this build.
I still do not like the Microsoft edge browser. The edge browser does not support Microsoft Silverlight. Firefox and Opera do have support of Microsoft Silverlight.
Most W10 BSODs are gone. I am very happy with w10 version 1511 build 10586.3.
Did they fixed the bug where
Did they fixed the bug where TCP/IP4 Properties window of a VPN adapter does not open???
WTF are they thinking? this
WTF are they thinking? this seriously bad user experience, it’s a full new OS install, it’s worse than an old service packs and it’s been only a few months since windows 10 was launched,
huge download, huge time to install the new OS, huge pain and possibility of problems…
I’m fully regretting my decision to install windows 10 in 4 PCs, now I’ll have to explain family members why exactly is windows reinstalling itself and taking forever to do so.
get an SSD then. only took
get an SSD then. only took ~10min on mine.
It doesn’t take 10 minutes on
It doesn’t take 10 minutes on an SSD. It varies. More like half an hour on my system, probably less, but not 10 minutes. Probably most systems will be there at 30+ minutes. Now if you are using a system with a fast NVMe SSD and 12 threads Intel processor, that could explain those 10 minutes you say.
Microsoft needs to learn that
Microsoft needs to learn that resetting the browser preference is not acceptable. I wasn’t using IE prior to the Windows 10 upgrade, was forced to reset the preference and now the fall update changes it yet again?
I already run linux on my laptop thanks to Win8, given generally poor direction on Win10 its almost certain I’ll be switching everything to Linux soon.
I’ve rolled back my inside
I’ve rolled back my inside copy of windows 10 to Win7, that’s until the 2020 expiry date arrives.

I’m using the 10565 and the browser is crashing constantly together with normal apps causing a blue screen. Quiet frankly, I don’t know how these pricks (Microsoft)can get away with giving us an OS that more unstable and buggy than Win98 ?
Th2 is a huge improvement
Th2 is a huge improvement from w10 lunch. The image a precise and keep up.
W10 build 10586.3 is much
W10 build 10586.3 is much better than build 10240. In the current build, I am still getting more errors than warnings. So in my opinion, W10 is still not ready.
Microsoft Edge browser lacks functionality. I have build 10586.3, build 10240 and windows 8.1.
I like W10 but W10 still needs a lots of testing. Microsoft is forcing users to W10 and destroying working W 7/8.1 devices.
When you reset W10, it removes all third party apps and settings. Lots of people are going to be very unhappy with this aspect of W10.
I will give Microsoft another six months so that they can produce an stable OS.
It removed Netgear Genie on
It removed Netgear Genie on me, there’s a Reddit thread where someone mentioned it removed Speccy on them.
I installed Adobe Reader DC
I installed Adobe Reader DC today. The Adobe Reader crashed Windows 10 build 10586.3. Within few hours I have to uninstall Adobe Reader.
I have also installed Adobe Flash player 19.xxx. I am keeping my fingers crossed.
Adobe Systems Inc. has become one of the most hated company on the internet. I am hoping that Adobe Systems Inc will self destruct itself.
