Since the beginning of Windows 10, Microsoft has began revamping the UI step-by-step. This resulted in the provision of similar options at two locations. Say, for instance, you can uninstall purposes from the brand new Settings Page, and likewise from the previous Program and Features. The similar goes for Settings > View Update History. While the duplication is slowly shortening, it can take some time for them to fully go from the core of Windows.
Settings View Update History & Control Panel Installed Updates differ
What not too long ago stunned me is the distinction between put in updates which might be accessible beneath the previous Programs and Features > Installed Updates and the brand new Settings > Update and Security > View Update History.
Check on the 2 screenshots beneath.
What you ought to discover is that KB4465477 is lacking from the brand new Settings whereas it reveals up clearly in the Control Panel. This makes us a suppose can we actually trust the View Update History in Settings? Imagine if somebody has to know if the replace was put in, he won’t ever discover it in the brand new settings. All he shall be doing is troubleshooting. While its attainable that it syncs up later, however the delay is just not one thing customers will recognize.
That mentioned, the problem doesn’t appear to be new. I discovered posts about Windows 10 now exhibiting put in updates in Microsoft Forum, and it was later mounted by one other KB replace. Some even reported that the replace vanished after appearing in the listing which is even mysterious.
What I perceive from the listing is the API getting used in the brand new Settings app appears to be sluggish or generally not working in comparison with the earlier code.
The Windows previous Control Panel continues to be round due to causes like this, and it appears it can take extra time for Microsoft to iron out these bugs. What do you suppose?
