Windows 10 Update Hub Makes It Easier To Find Release Notes

Windows 10 Hero Good

One of the big complaints about the Windows Update process is that when the company releases a patch, it can be a bit cumbersome to figure out what was addressed and if there are any known issues. At one point, Microsoft said that they would not detail every release but today, the company is reversing course on that decision.

Microsoft is launching a new site (link below) that will make it easier to find the patch notes for the OS; if this sounds familiar, there are similar pages for firmware updates for all of its hardware products.

The company says they created this page because of the feedback received from users of the OS. Considering that the company is now pushing out updates more frequently than just Patch Tuesday, an easy-to-use central repository has long been needed.
