Update Catalog gets an entry for Microsoft’s latest cumulative update
Latest Windows 10 update KB 3216755 is being distributed in completely new way. It’s neither a Preview Release nor being forced as a mandatory. It’s not being kept aside of the general Windows update package, instead, it’s laying there in Windows catalog. One can install it if they want to.
Agreed, this is a completely new way for Microsoft to distribute such updates. Previously, we’ve not seen such methods used by Microsoft. We can expect Microsoft to retain this new way of distribution of updates, going forward.
Let’s take an example and see why this update technique is useful:
By one of the Windows patching experts, Windows 10 Anniversary Update, version 1607 brought in a serious bug in network shares. Post which creation or deletion of folders in network shares was failing. Previous update 1511, didn’t have such any such issues. Within 4-5 Microsoft got notified about this problem.
Cumulative update finally fixed that problem along with many other flaws. In the new way of distribution adopted by Microsoft, it has listed all the identified fixes separately, ranging from network connection problems to internet explorer & edge.
A few companies or individuals dedicated a separate PC or virtual machine to test windows 10 cumulative updates before their actual release. This can satisfy their precautionary needs but isn’t feasible for the large chunk of windows users.
Now, a complete description of the cumulative update is available on the windows 10 changelog. One who wants to try it may definitely go ahead or else completely skip it.
This is absolutely an impressive way to tackle and lower down the problems faced by not so computer savy windows users.
Still not to worry, windows operating system is backed by numerous third party assistance companies along with Microsoft’s own customer service. They can easily handle the problems you face in most satisfactory manner. One such recommended experts if you want to contact them, you may dial 1-800-274-2129, they should be able to help immediately.
