    Update History Is Missing. Help Getting it Back.

    I noticed this morning, when I was trying tocorrelate a problem I was having with Quicken, that my update history is missingfrom Settings\View your Update History. I realize that I can see it in ControlPanel\Programs\Programs and Features\Installed Updates but Iím curious if thereis a way that I can bring this info back to Settings.

    I doubt it, my fine feline friend. (Nice cat avatar!)

    When MS does a comprehensive update, it resets the Windows version type and wipes all prior updates from the Settings/Windows Update/Advanced options/View your update history.

    Thanks gpstoloff. I did not know that, interesting. The pix is "Tuxie." Been gone nearly 2 years now. He was feral. He and his mom adopted me when he was about 6 months old. Happy Holidays!

    Yep, that's another feature unique to W10, so that everyone is at the same level.

    "A temporary inconvenience, a permanent improvement". That's what our DOT says, and it's just as applicable to MS.
