    Windows Update had been removed from Control Panel since Insider Preview build 9926.

    I'm not an Insider.. and as I said, this is the first time I've actually seen this.. and hadn't come across it. And I positively know W Update (old style) was sthg I saw until recently.. very occasionally I'd go there and view the history. How odd.

    What I was alluding to ................
    Build 9926 was released on Jan 23rd 2015.
    Win 10 RTM was released on July 29th, 2015.

    So, if Preview build 9926 did not have WU in CP on Jan 2015, how was it possible that Win 10 RTM would have WU in CP on July 29th and onwards ?

    Thanks for the info. I had no knowledge of either
    - the release date of Preview build 9926
    - the loss of this feature prior to this week

    because it had been available to me until recently.

    Therein lies the conundrum, apparently- how could the traditional Win update have been on my 2 laptops, including my 6 week old one?

    Another of life's minor mysteries.
