There could be only one major addition this particular release: Windows Update will be tweaked being more proactive at keeping PCs updated. When Windows Update scans, downloads, and installs updates within the PC this really is plugged in, it can be prevent the PC from hitting the hay when it has not been in active use for as long as 2 hours. Very best is to “give Windows Update more an opportunity to succeed,” the team explains.
