Microsoft on Tuesday said it's starting to release the first of two major Windows 10 updates for 2019 for all users.
While Microsoft's growth is based around cloud products like Azure infrastructure and the Office 365 productivity suite, Windows remains a key portion of the business with over 1.5 billion users. Windows 10, across all its various versions, has amassed more than 800 million monthly active users since launching in 2015. Windows represented more than 15% of revenue in the most recent quarter.

Users can check to see if the update is available by visiting the Windows Update feature and hitting the "Check for updates" button. Windows 7 reaches end of support in January 2020.
