        Does anyone have a list of all the updates this year that have caused problems?  There have definitely been more this year than I can ever remember in a single year.

        I’m not talking about all the telemetry or similar updates that we all want to avoid.  I’m mainly just talking about the ones that broke stuff.

        Granted, we are just in the third quarter so there is still plenty of time for MS to expand on the count but surely someone here has an easy way to get a tally going.

        Microsoft maintains a list of known issues for each version of Windows, but most have been mitigated or resolved:

          Thanks, but I was already aware of that & that’s not what I was asking for.

          What I am looking for is the number of bad updates released by Microsoft in 2019.

          (Bad = the update broke some component of Windows.  This is not limited to updates they released and then pulled.)

            That’s exactly what those lists include.

              If you don’t have a list, that’s perfectly fine.  If I was going to do the research myself I would have done so already without asking here.

              I was simply asking out of curiosity if anyone has already compiled such a list. Cute remarks suggesting I just need to look it up myself are not useful.

              Yes the information is there, mostly.  However, in the format it is listed there, it would take hours to compile and additional research would be likely.  I benefit nothing from this so it’s not worth my time.
