    I'm new to this forum so I am not sure if this is the place to post these questions so forgive me if it should go somewhere else. I am coming from the world of Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. My new computer came with Windows 10 Pro 64 bit version 1803 installed. I have been receiving notifications from the manufacturer for driver updates that are for version 1809 which I haven't installed. Will it mess up anything to install drivers for version 1809 if I continue to run version 1803? Another question: I see Microsoft just released version 1903. If I don't install version 1809 and at some future date can I jump from version 1803 to version 1903? Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am on a steep learning curve.

    I think I might disagree. If your machine is running well you don't need to update drivers.

    At a minimum I would do a system Image with all the change that is about to happen. (Drivers, Feature Updates)

    Yes you can jump from 1803 to 1903.

    ...can I jump from version 1803 to version 1903?
    Yes, you can skip versions and update straight to the latest one.

    and if I can jump in again I would wait at least a week before going to 1903.

    Of course as Bree said earlier, where is the fun in that.

    If you are on 1803 you probably like a nice stable system to get work and entertain done. With my production machines I let other be the pioneers.

    As it has been said may times, you can always take the dive by making sure you have a system image backup, preferably by MR. Pretty sure, you will agree with me.
