    Microsoft Just Fixed One of the Biggest Windows Update Annoyances...


    Microsoft has a lot to fix in Windows 10 and the update thatís expected to launch in October or November is supposed to do just that and bring new features on PCs and tablets, such as extension support for Edge browser.

    But in the meantime, Redmondís taking care of the little things that matter, such as colors, personalization options, and the way updates are displayed in the Windows Update screen.

    In Windows 10, Microsoft gave up on the old Windows Update section in Control Panel and moved it to Settings, which is the only destination for setting up your PC in the new OS. Windows Update, however, used an awkward way to display information on the patches that were about to be downloaded, and the available description didnít use the available space in the active window.

    Instead, Microsoft broke the description in several lines, which forced users to scroll a lot when they had to install more updates.

    Now if they would only fix the description, that is, give us one.

    Ooooh good catch, when the time zone is set wrong in Win10, all kinds of things don't work or work correctly!
