        The newer version is Microsoft response to complaints about there not being enough information on what was happening. How about they put everything into plain text and make it understandable, with more information then ever. They chose to make it difficult to see transparently into what is going on.

          I was told it was to save space on the hard drive especially on small hard drives and laptops.  (Yea tell my Acer 32 gig computer that).

          CBS log files are big.  Windowsupdate.log never too huge amount of space on the hard drive in the first place.

        A “Problem” in Feedback Center can no longer be voted up, at least if you’re on the current version of Feedback Hub on Insider (not sure about other versions).

        There’s a feedback item about it, which you’ll see can be voted up because it’s a Suggestion:

        This behavior, while completely nuts, is apparently intentional.

        I wish I could vote, but both feedback links provided by Susan Bradley and rpodric resulted in the message “Your account doesn’t have access to this feedback.” I’m running Windows 10 1903 Home and am not enrolled in the Insider Program.
