To date, many Microsoft updates – particularly for Windows 10 – haven’t given customers much detail about what changes they’re actually going to make to your system. This is set to change thanks to a new ‘update history’ website that Microsoft is making available.
Check for details about Windows 10 updates
If you’re uncertain about the changes that pending Windows 10 updates may make to your PC, or if you’re curious about recent updates you’ve already permitted, you can now head to the official Microsoft site to learn more.
To check these details yourself, head to the Microsoft's Windows 10 Update History site and scroll down the list of updates that have been explained so far.
Microsoft hasn’t done a perfect job of explaining each update in simple, jargon-free English. Under each update that’s listed, a series of bullet points are given – these describe various features that have been added or corrected.
Less experienced users may find some of the information tricky to understand, but it’s positive to see Microsoft offering this degree of transparency around its updates.
What’s less fortunate is that you’re not automatically served with this information when updates are ready for your computer. You’ll have to proactively head to the Microsoft site if you want to learn more about any pending updates for your PC.
