The first Patch Tuesday of ’21; time to delay updates
It’s Patch Tuesday time — that exciting second Tuesday of each month when we turn towards Redmond, WA, hoping for quality updates — and my advice is to not install updates tomorrow. To be fair, the vast majority of Microsoft users should be fine with whatever patches and fixes arrive. But, personally, I push off updates and delay installations on the systems I care about; you should do the same.
With that piece of advice out of the way, I have some suggestions for 2021 for a healthy patching year.
