  • Microsoft releases the “optional, non-security, C/D/E Week” patch for Win10 version 2004

    Microsoft just dropped the last “optional, non-security” August patch for a still-breathing Win10 version.

    Yep, the “optional, non-security, C/D/E Week” patch, KB 4571744, is now available via Windows Update – if you click the Download and install link.

    And look. At. All. The. Changes. I do believe that’s the longest list of changes in a Windows update that I’ve ever seen.

    Here’s the one I was waiting for:

    Addresses an issue that causes the Optimize Drives dialog to incorrectly report that previously optimized drives need to be optimized again.

    Microsoft’s way late in the game for Preview patches – Patch Tuesday is five days away – but at least we’re going to get a little bit of out-of-the-box testing.

    Of course you don’t want it. Of course.
