Microsoft Dashboard for Updates.

As promised back in April, the Health Dashboard for Window’s 10 is live as of the first part of June. Here’s the address of where it can be found.https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/release-information/status-windows-10-1903 Below we have a guide on what to expect when looking through the new dashboard:

Each update is broken down by version, availability date and operating system.

On the left of the screen you can select an update by version number, or the “Message Center” for general announcements.

After you select “Known Issues” you’ll find a section that gives you a summary of active problems with status of each problem.

If you select “Resolved Issues, you’ll find problems that have been fixed in the last 30 days.

When you select See Details, you’ll get a detailed description of the problems, notes from Microsoft for workarounds, advice on how to avoid the issues and steps they are taking to fix each problem.

Microsoft has done this to focus on improved quality and transparency of its update system. The site keeps up to date with each patch released and is a great way to keep tabs on the evolution of updates that come out every six months and how they can affect you and your system.

You now have the added benefit of keeping up to date with the patches, you also get to make an informed decision if you want to delay updates until after an issue has been resolved.
