As part of the company’s monthly patch Tuesday cycle, Microsoft expects to release a new set of cumulative updates for Windows 10 users today, tuesday, that focuses on resolving security issues in Windows 10 and the included components, but as a normal one, additional bug fixes will be available when such cumulative updates are released.
While it is difficult to predict all the security fixes that Microsoft will include in these updates, some non-security improvements have been tested as part of the Windows Insider program. For example, today’s cumulative update for Windows 10 version 2004 may resolve an error that will cause a “no Internet connection” message for the network icon in the system tray, even though the Internet connection is actually working.
All Windows 10 versions will receive cumulative updates, but it is recommended that consumers running Home and Professional editions update as soon as possible and keep working under the latest version.
Windows 10 2004, the May 2020 update is the latest feature update for the operating system, and Microsoft released this version in stages to detect errors as early as possible and prevent them from affecting more devices. You can check the update manually to see if your computer is ready for version 2004.
Some users may want to delay the installation of new cumulative updates because of possible problems, as these patches have previously caused problems such as failed installations and compromised Windows features. To do this, simply click the pause button in Windows Update and postpone the installation by a week.
The official launch of the Tuesday, August 11 patch update will begin later today, and the Windows 8.1 security update will be released (Windows 7 will only serve devices that receive extended security updates).
