Windows 10 users will now get an option and warning related to updates, need not to install all the updates.
Microsoft has confirmed it is changing the Windows 10 update experience so users will now be warned which updates they do not need to install.
There were many issues with Windows 10 updates, Given that in the last month alone, users have to face problems like screen discoloration and spiking CPU usage were all caused by updates users didn’t need to install, this should make a big difference not just to Windows 10 stability but users’ peace of mind overall.
The Window 10 is taking some pro tips from Window 7 as this is exactly how Windows 7 operates: Microsoft sorted updates into ‘Important’ and ‘Optional’ categories so users could better judge what they wanted to be installed on their computers. The fact this was scrapped in Windows 10 in favor of lumping all updates together and that it has subsequently taken Microsoft over four years to bring it back is mind-boggling.
But, Windows 10 users still won’t have the same level of control over their updates as Windows 7. This is because Windows 7 frequently classed drivers, NET framework, quality updates and more as optional, while drivers – a frequent source of problems – will still update automatically in Windows 10 by default.
When will Windows 10 users get this new optional update control?
Users have to wait until 2020 when Microsoft releases the Windows 10 20H1 upgrade. Windows Insiders can grab an early build now but preview releases by definition contain more bugs, so that may prove counterproductive.
