The operation of the Windows update system has repeatedly been criticized by users. To correct the situation, Microsoft announced a change in the algorithm for getting updates. In particular, the corporation will improve the installation scheme of drivers included in the next patch for desktop operating systems.
The new feature will give users more control over the installation of drivers automatically "arriving" on the PC - according to the developers, this will avoid compatibility problems when deploying patches. The "Additional Updates" section will appear in the settings menu of Windows Update, which will separately list different versions of drivers for various devices with the option of manual installation.
Although automatic mode will be saved as the main update method, packages that may not be installed automatically will appear on this page of optional updates. The innovation will also allow iron manufacturers to publish drivers so that Microsoft can pre-test them for compatibility with the OS. According to available information, the distribution of the new function has already started - the ability to manually install optional updates will soon be available to users from all regions.
