Monthly quality updates for Windows are designed to enhance productivity and security by providing essential security fixes to users and IT administrators. These updates protect devices from potential threats by addressing vulnerabilities and preventing them from exploitation.
Windows 10, version 21H1, has reached the end of servicing, and devices running this version will no longer receive monthly security and preview updates that provide protection against the latest security threats. It is recommended to update to a newer version of Windows 10 to continue receiving security updates.
Windows 10 allows you to choose when and how to receive the latest updates to ensure your device runs efficiently and securely. To manage your update preferences and view available updates, simply select “Check for Windows updates”. Alternatively, you can access the update settings by selecting Start > Settings > Windows Update.
Microsoft releases security updates on “Patch Tuesday,” the second Tuesday of each month at 10:00 AM PST. IT professionals should plan their deployment schedules according to their time zone(s).
