Windows 10 to get optional update with quality fixes in a few days

Windows 10 Optional Updates

In March,
Microsoft said they were temporarily halting the release of
optional Windows 10 updates that are released in the third or
fourth weeks of each month.

Microsoft paused the rollout of those updates due to the impact
of the health crisis around the world, so it could focus on
security patches that will ensure everyone working from home
won’t have to deal with any unwanted updates and security bugs.

In an update to the support document, Microsoft has now
confirmed that it will resume the delivery of non-security
updates later this month for Windows 10 and Windows Server
version 1809 and later.

“Starting in July 2020, we will resume non-security releases
for Windows 10 and Windows Server, version 1809 and later.
There is no change to the cumulative monthly security updates
(also referred to as the “B” release or Update Tuesday
release),” Microsoft noted.

Windows 10’s optional updates, also known as “Preview
releases”, will include non-security fixes and improvements.
Those optional updates usually include dozens of fixes for
minor or critical bugs in Windows 10. For example, some
optional updates were released with up to 20 different fixes.

Microsoft said it plans to release optional updates in the
third week of the month to simplify things for consumers and
companies.

Windows 10’s next optional update is expected to become
available for download with several bug fixes by July 24, 2020.

It’s worth noting that there will be no change to the existing
schedule of the Patch Tuesday ‘security-focused’ Windows
Update. Microsoft will continue releasing important security
and compulsory updates every second week of the month as part
of Patch Tuesday.

Microsoft also noted that IT pros using Windows Server
Update Services (WSUS) will no longer get these optional
updates for their devices in the WSUS channel.

For consumers, those “optional, preview, C or D Week” patches
won’t be automatically applied to your PC. Windows 10 optional
updates are installed only when you click the “Download and
install” button.
