Another Windows 10 update

 

The latest MS Win 10 update has been released and is being called:

Feature update to Windows 10, version 20H2 and
November 10, 2020—KB4586781 (OS Builds 19041.630 and 19042.630).

It installed with no issues and appears to be a relatively trivial update. The highlight seems to be:

Updates the 2020 DST start date for the Fiji Islands to December 20, 2020.

Update

Just updated to the new version on my 3 pc's, didn't notice any changes.

Got it.

Just updated one of my desktop PCs. One more desktop I used as a backup PC will need to taken out of the closet and put inline for updating. My Asus Zenbook laptop doesn't show this update as it is still waiting for the earlier Win 10 version 2004 update. No hurry.

updated mine

still have a little problem with edge browser, when reading news on msn an then going to outlook to check my mail it seems to lock up for a few minutes where i cant click anything and have no control, i have 32 gigs of ram and 8 gigs of video ram so memory should not be a problem, i have checked my memory and it's all good . after a while every thing works fine, when i play games i never have any problems and my internet speed is fine, no problems with google news and gmail

Not me...

This has happened in the past and usually the steps at https://www.smith.edu/tara/computers_mobiledevices/restore_b... have brought back the old bookmarks.

Update

Microsoft warned me that this week's update would take longer than usual, so it appears it was more than a time fix for Fiji. I have yet to review exactly what else was changed.

Not on my laptop

That's interesting that is took a while to install the update. When I installed it, it took just a very few minutes, and there's absolutely nothing special about my laptop. A couple of months Win 10 came out with a version change that took about 45 minutes to install. Is it possible that's the update you just installed?

time depends on what version is being updated

The time involved in the updates is dependent on what your version is prior to the update. If you are moving from Win 10 1909, also called 19H2 and dating from November 2019, to the absolute latest October update, Win 10 20H2, then it can take quite a long time. An analogy would be running the bases, homeplate to homeplate as in scoring a home run.

If however you are moving from Win 10 2004, also called 20H1 and dating from May 2020 to the absolute latest October update, Win 10 20H2, then it may take a very short period of time. In one way of thinking, going from 20H1 (May) to 20H2 (October) is shorter because you are 1/2 way there; an analogy would be running from 2nd base to home plate.

You can check your specific update history by simply typing "Windows Update History" (without the quote marks) into the Search box in your lower left corner and selecting "View your update history".
