• Patch list for January 2023 – final update

    I realized tonight that I hadn’t done my final recap of the January updates on the Master Patch List page

    We’re just about to get ready for the February updates so stay tuned for advice about February.

    As a reminder – if  you want to keep your computer on Windows 10 but still let it update to the various feature releases – Enter Windows 10 in that upper section of the local group policy and leave the lower portion blank.

    • Windows 11 22H2: Not recommended
    • Windows 11 21H2: If you have a Windows 11 PC, recommended
    • Windows 10 22H2: Recommended
    • Windows 10 21H2: Recommended (if a vendor won’t support 22H2)
    • Apple Ventura – tentative. Check with the applications you rely on if they recommend this release.

    As always, thank you all for supporting the cause! Remember a donation will give you access and if you donate $50 or more you’ll get a special code to enable text messages sent to your phone each time the Master Patch List gets updated and when I change the MS-DEFCON level.

    Be aware that due to a change in twitter possibly as early as next week, the DefCon tweeting may not work automatically.  The texting will continue without fail, but I rely on Zapier who is like everyone else and trying to keep up with what keeps changing. We will keep you posted as we know more.
