Microsoft Freezing Optional Windows Updates Amidst COVID19 Pandemic

Microsoft yesterday announced that they would be freezing any release for optional Windows 10 updates whilst the world still reels from the COVID-19 pandemic. This decision by the company comes after they decided to keep delivering security updates for the Fall Creator’s update (version 1709 of the OS).

Both these decisions by Microsoft stem from the company trying to reduce the impact of Windows 10 updates on businesses – reducing update requirements to security updates means there is fewer chances of an optional update shipping that could negatively impact productivity – of which very little bit is required right now for some businesses to even keep afloat. When the crisis has passed, all updates will be resumed.
