I am surprised a routine upgrade/update is viewed as unexpected. With Windows 10 upgrades and patches are released as and when.

This information is available on the Get Started information that is installed on all versions of Windows 10: To read it navigate your Windows 10 to Start>Universal Applications>Get Started>Setting Things Up>Choose How Updates Are Installed.

Only Pro and more advanced version can delay the installation of UPGRADES which should not be confused with Update Patches.

The regular Windows Update for the second Tuesday for security updates and forth Tuesday for non security items are history for Windows 10 although some MAY still be issued on those dates. The same applies for users of Microsoft Office 365 - updates are also as and when or you can use the internal mechanism on any of the programmes that make up your choice of suite.

What was missing from the new modus operandi was information on the upgrades and patches that were installed. This has been corrected by Microsoft who now offer the information.

Bookmark this and you will get your information "direct from the horses mouth". ae676cea8d085a6)(256380)(2459594)(TnL5HPStwNw-qlBl X4Be3we75iR...jn2Q)()
