Windows 10 has introduced a new ‘Windows as a Service’ model wherever your apparatus will be updated regularly with fixes, enhancements, and new features. Microsoft is currently rolling out a brand new compatibility update to devices that aren’t prepared to receive the latest update from Microsoft.
Microsoft is currently rolling out the Windows 10 October 2020 Update to customers gradually and it intends to launch another feature update in 2021. As you are likely aware, if a fresh Windows 10 update is round the corner — which occurs twice annually — Microsoft begins deploying compatibility upgrade.
Yesterday, Microsoft began rolling out Windows 10 KB4023057 to users with version 2004 or newer. Just some users are receiving it now, but others might get it in the coming weeks or after a couple of months.
In an update to its service document, Microsoft reported that this patch will try to take several actions to prepare your device and assess its compatibility with Windows 10 updates. By way of example, it is going to attempt to free your disk space by clearing the temporary files if you do not have enough disk space.
Microsoft will add additional files and resources to Windows 10 installation to”make sure updates are installed” smoothly on your device. In addition, Windows 10 KB4023057 for version 2004 will also improve the reliability and safety of devices.
Here’s a listing of modifications this patch could cause your system:
-Reset your system settings automatically if problems are detected.
-Reset your Windows Registry: Any keys which may be preventing updates from being installed will be clean up.
-Disable, fix, or modify Windows components in charge of Windows Update.
-Compress files in your profile directory.
Microsoft verified that the patch will still honor your Windows Update settings such as the active hours. Also, the patch may clear your Windows Update background if it tries to repair Windows Update components.
