Microsoft to stop serving non-security monthly updates to Windows
Beginning in May, Microsoft plans to halt the delivery of all non-security updates to Windows, another step in its suspension of non-essential revisions to the OS and other important products.
The optional updates, which Microsoft designates as Windows’ C and D updates, are released during the third and fourth week of each month, respectively.
“We have been evaluating the public health situation, and we understand this is impacting our customers,” Microsoft said to some understatement in a March 24 post to the Windows 10 messaging center. “In response to these challenges we are prioritizing our focus on security updates.”
