Microsoft updates Windows 10 regularly. These updates do not bring major changes to the operating system and sometimes, the changes are so minor that users do not even notice them. But the question is how many of us love these frequent Windows 10 updates? Are they doing more bad than good or more good than bad?


Windows 10, without any doubt, is an operating system that is “in demand.” Not because it’s free but because it has some wonderful, cool new features. You can say, it is to desktops what Android is to smartphones. Apps, digital assistant, free games, display dock and what not? This operating system is trying its best to bring the best of computing to you. Windows 10, though loved was also criticized for pushing automatic Windows 10 updates. What irritated users was that these updates made changes like deleting apps without permission or notifying the user. These were the apps that Microsoft thought are no longer needed on your system. You could download them back anyway.

But some changes are good. Like Cortana. Earlier on  my system, the “Home” never loaded on Cortana. Now when you click on this digital assitant, it quickly loads giving me four options: Apps, Settings, File and Webpage. At least on my system, nothing ever appeared under this section ever before. Windows 10 updates continuously targets one flaw after another and works towards fixing it. Having said that, Windows 10 updates also comes along with new problems some of the time. We reported a few days back, there were uninstalled updates on the system (updates failed to install even after the setting was set to “Automatic”). This resulted into Cortana not working and then slowly everything on the taskbar stopped working. This was fixed after installing updates that had previously failed.

Windows 10 updates have their own bugs, mobile as well as desktop but Microsoft’s constant effort to improve the system is what still makes them good. What’s your view about frequent Windows 10 updates? Thumbs up or thumbs down?
