      I agree 100%. The update history pages are great. You just click the Windows version, then the patch and can read what has changed. Nice and simple. I do wish finding information on security updates was a bit easier though, but maybe I’m not looking in the right place.

      But for non-security update information, they do have a nice documentation system for Windows.

        One addendum to my comment, if you could edit this in, thank you.

         

        I took the survey, I left them a glowing review. I did mention in the last part that I think finding info on security updates could be better. But otherwise I have no issues with the documentation.

      I wonder why KB4023057 isn’t on the history pages?

      We see it often enough.

        VERY good point and a stellar example of how the current situation needs improvement.

      For advice at the end, I put “more thorough testing before posting”.

      Don't take yourself so seriously, no one else does 🙂

      While completing this survey, I noticed that the Windows update history site now says:

      Current status of Windows, version 1809, Windows Server 2019, and Windows Server, version 1809

      Windows 10, version 1809 rollout status as of March 28, 2019

      Available for any user who manually selects “Check for updates” via Windows Update.

      Designated for broad deployment and Semi-Annual Channel for servicing status (recommended option).

      Presumably added today, as that comment wasn’t there at the start of this week;

      No line for SAC we’ve seen previously added at Windows 10 release information though. Updated after cache cleared.

      Also noted on the current update history page that is useful:

      Note on upgrade blocks: Blocking the availability of a Windows 10 feature update to devices we know will experience issues is a key aspect of our controlled rollout approach to provide users with a great update experience. We decide what to block based on user impact from closely monitoring feedback and device diagnostics. Blocking issues are a high priority for us to address as quickly as possible. If we detect that your device may have an issue, such as an application incompatibility, we will not install the update until that issue is resolved, even if you “Check for updates”. We do this so that you avoid encountering any known problems.

      So maybe the clicking “Check for Updates” trigger might not get the update? (as in if we can absolutely 100% trust MS ?) Just a question.
