      Hi,

      I bought and activated a ESU license for my PC. Can I still just install security updates from now on (Group B) or should I use Windows Update and install monthly rollout from now on ? Thanks !

      @Susan-Bradley has some information on the ESUs in the Newsletter article here.

      Additional information is in this thresd, in post #2045118. @abbodi86 says:

      There will be no change on Windows Update experience

      simply, when WU scan is initiated, it check if current edition is supported, then it check if ESU key is installed and activated

      if both rules are true, then the ESU update will be offered (most likely will be a Monthly Rollup)
