Microsoft has released monthly Windows 10 cumulative updates to all supported versions of the operating system. These are optional updates that bring non-security quality improvements to Windows 10 users. The company had announced earlier that considering the public health situation, it would be prioritizing its focus on security updates.

"Starting in May 2020, we are pausing all optional non-security releases (C and D updates) for all the supported versions of Windows client and server products (Windows 10, version 1909 down to Windows Server 2008 SP2)," the Windows maker had said. Today's releases appear be the last batch of optional Windows 10 updates for a while. Monthly security updates will continue to be delivered to all supported versions.
