    Microsoft Finally Agrees to Provide Info on Windows 10 Updates

    If you're already on Windows 10, you probably know that Microsoft doesn't provide any change log with the updates it releases for your operating system, aside from some very short mentions of “improvements and performance optimizations.”

    So it's absolutely no surprise that the majority of users running Windows 10 criticized Microsoft for this sudden change, especially because they want always to be in full control of the updates they install, which sometimes could actually do more harm than good.
    Fortunately, it appears that Microsoft has received the message, and Windows boss Terry Myerson says that the software giant is now working to change this approach and provide us with change logs for every single Windows 10 update that it pushes to our computers.
    “Consumer feedback”

    Obviously, Myerson used this occasion to praise Microsoft's new collaboration with users, saying that it's all living proof that they are actively listening to our opinions (we're still waiting for tabs in File Explorer, by the way).
    “As an example of direct response to feedback we’ve received, we will be improving our documentation of what has changed within any individual update, and improving scheduling options for when updates are installed. This collaboration with Insiders is invaluable to our team, and we continue to welcome anyone who wants to work with us on the future of Windows 10,” Myerson recently said.
    Right now, it's not yet clear when Microsoft actually plans to provide us with information on the Windows 10 updates it ships, but given the fact that Threshold 2 is just around the corner, this would be a good moment to start doing this.

    Nice, but - I have never seen a cumulative update (in Windows 10), in which there were no problems . (Not for me!)
    Perhaps these issues should be resolved first !?

    That is good news, as long as there are no caveats.

    Hopefully this brings us one step closer to returning to the old way that updates were done- let ME decide which updates to install on MY computer.

    Good news for them who might be having trouble and have gone back to windows 7, 8, 8.1.
    I have been one of the lucky ones up to now my upgrade went with a hitch apart from one driver that needed an update.
    Since then trouble free.
    But would be nice what updates do as I do like reading up on them and learning more about what it improves

    This is good news, i hope they go all the way and allow people to delay them on home version or not install them at all.

    I do understand why Microsoft want updates (especially security updates) on machines as soon as possible, but overall I think an attitude of 'Let the user decide' is a much better one, those who have little or no knowledge of what they are doing tend to leave automatic updates on anyway.
