    Default Timing Display of Windows Update

    I am on Win (64( 10 v 21H2 fully updated.

    Each day (say about 0915) when I first connect to Internet (MS Edge) I go to Settings -Update and Security.

    a) Some days I get "you last updated at " which is -same time as this log on.

    b) Other days I get "your system is update to date -last updated yesterday at xx Hours yy minutes

    In the latter case click on "check for updates" and mostly there will be an update for Security Intelligence which I then download and install.

    Why do I get the 2 different messages re update?

    FYI I have not accepted the option "we notice you regularly use your computer between XX hours and YY hours. so will not install updates during these hours"

    I posted this query on MS Community but got only 1 response - an illogical answer which proved that person had not read the full post as abpve

    Can anyone explain the 2 different scenarios under a) and b)

    thanks
    Neil

    Being on that forum its not uncommon BUT on saying that what / how you have described can be taken as two different things and not where they should be.

    Meaning:
    I first connect to Internet (MS Edge) I go to Settings -Update and Security.
    So which one is it ??? The update and security is accessed Via the Settings ( as mentioned.) NOT Via MS Edge. (thats how you have written it.)

    The reason for two lots of updates.
    1. There's windows updates (Update and Security)
    2. Edge - Has its own updates.

    Sometimes they update more than others, and not always at the same time usually independently from one another.

    in Win10 , If you click "check for updates".......

    .......MS will happily send you untested beta/preview updates .

    Updates will come down when the should.
    Dont be in a big rush to get bug ridden updates, wait for others to test them

    :-)

    for example
    A recent (past month) 10 & 11 update caused VPN issues for many people.
    Dont rush it . Its not a race . Wait for updates to be fixed .

    to Wainui and 1101

    Wainui I only use Settings- Update and Security -I do not check via Edge -it is my merely my preferred but not my only browser. I guess I should not have mentioned it.
    FYI I had not mentioned Edge in my MS Community Post.

    1101 I do not download the beta/preview updates (Optional ) -for the same reasons as you -I do not want to risk bugs.
