Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Microsoft temporarily paused the distribution of optional, non-security monthly updates for Windows 10. Things are now returning to normal as a blog post from Microsoft announces the return of optional releases in July of 2020 for Windows 10 and Windows Server, version 1809 and later. The announcement also details some changes that are intended to simplify the update process.
In March, we announced that we would pause optional non-security update releases (also referred to as "C" and "D" releases) for all supported versions of Windows client and Windows Server to give organizations time to focus on business continuity in the face of the global pandemic. Based on feedback and the ongoing stabilization of business continuity, we will resume optional releases in July of 2020 for Windows 10 and Windows Server, version 1809 and later, to once again provide you with the ability to test planned non-security fixes targeted for the next month’s Update Tuesday (or "B") release. We are also instituting a few changes to simplify the update process and help you continue to stay current with Windows 10 and Windows Server.
