    Update History Vanished.


    I have just downloaded the latest updates and re-started my computer but Update History in Settings informs me that "No Updates have been installed yet". So where has my long list of updates gone, any ideas please? I am still on version 1607.

    Hi, please see the thread in the News section related to your update (whichever one that is... 'latest' is not the same for everyone...).

    There are similar reports. Compare what you see in the Control Panel, Programs and Features.

    Windows update is presumed to have been reset.

    This happened on my laptop a few months ago has happened again after this week's cumulative update. The Update History list repopulates eventually and all works OK. The updates are shown at Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features\View Installed Updates

    Many thanks. Unfortunately not all the updates are shown in Control Panel. The privacy update for Creator's isn't there.
