Microsoft is pausing optional Windows 10 updates in May

Every second Tuesday of the month, Microsoft releases new cumulative updates for Windows 10. These updates are mandatory, and they’ll install automatically if you don’t do it yourself. In the following weeks, there are typically optional updates that you can choose to install.

Microsoft is putting a hold on these optional updates, referred to as C and D updates (the letter corresponds to the week of the month, where the first week is A, the second is B, etc.), beginning in May. This applies to all supported versions of Windows client and server, but it’s just about optional updates. Patch Tuesday updates and security updates will still happen.

Because of the COVID-19 coronavirus, a lot of people are working from home. That also means that those same people are relying on their PC even more than they already do. Windows 10 is their lifeline to the outside world, to the co-workers that they need to interact with for their daily productivity.

Note that this doesn’t affect the optional updates that are already in place, like the one released today. We should also see new C and D updates next month, with this going into place in May.
