But thankfully Windows 10 users will soon be getting more control over the patches they chose to install or not.

Back in February began the rollout of the Windows 10 Optional updates experience.

As the name suggests, the feature gives users greater control over what drivers, non-security updates and other patches they download.

But the rollout was paused in March due to the coronavirus pandemic, with Microsoft opting to focus on updates that would help the increased number of people working from home.

The Redmond-based tech giant said were planning on prioritising security fixes and improvements to Windows 10 instead.

Microsoft said: “We have been evaluating the public health situation, and we understand this is impacting our customers”.
