Microsoft Begins Rolling Out October 2020 Update

Microsoft Begins Rolling Out October 2020 Update

Yesterday was Microsoft’s infamous Patch Tuesday for the month of October and the firm started rolling out their October 2020 Windows 10 Update. This is a major one, similar to a Service Pack, that will fix bugs and update a number of things – including the Start Menu. The October update will also install the new Chromium version of the Edge browser which Microsoft pulled shortly after it rolled out earlier this year. It’s no surprise that many users are leery about installing the patch. This has been a bad year for Windows Updates. In the Spring, a Windows Update broke Microsoft Defender and a patch released this Summer caused a number of printer issues. Additionally, there was a recent issue that seemed to only affect ThinkPads, but caused the infamous BSOD. Hopefully, the October update goes smoother than these last few.
