    W7 Ultimate SP1 (64 bit), LM 18.2 MATE (64 bit), W10 Home (64 bit)

    Improved update descriptions:
    A user should not have to search the Internet to find out that info.

    Improved update error messages:
    I was trying to update one of my W7 VMs and it hadn't received the secret "Windows Update" update, so it "spat the dummy" after downloading ~100 MB of updates.
    It did not indicate which update needed to be installed.
    I could not find out that info despite doing an Internet search.

    Is there a list showing the correct installation order for Windows updates?

    In my not so humble opinion, Windows Update should know the exact order in which they should be installed.

    When I have a long list of updates I do a few at a time.

    It probably does.

    Given all of the update issues (over the last 18 months) I am leery of letting Windows download 300+ MB of updates.

    I selected ~33% of the available updates.

    There's quite a few elements I find really frustrating in these new Builds.
    It's as if they said:
    "Hey folks, here's a new operating system for you to try out. There's a whole bunch of stuff in it that works in a totally different way but, you won't figure out how or why! However, we'd like you to take it for spin and tell us what you think!"
    And everyone at the Support Desk knows nothing!?

    Or maybe they're saying, "Until you've learned everything there is in this build, we ain't agonna give ya another.

    I think you take this stuff too serious. None of us needs to test Win 10. If we do it is because we are curious, not because we depend on it. The day will come when they will release enough information and in the meantime we learn from each other. And for the tough questions we always have Shawn.

    . . .If you don't like what Microsoft is doing, or how they are doing it then why are you testing. . .
