Windows update 2004

Should I install the Windows 10 2004 update?

Windows 10 2004 Update

Episode 1706

Dwight from Bismarck, ND

Dwight wants to know if he should install the latest 2004 Windows 10 update or wait. Leo says that 2004 is like 1909 and 1903 before it: a FEATURE update. There's nothing in there you absolutely have to have. And since many people are complaining that many things get "broken" with 2004, it's perfectly OK to wait. But Leo also thinks it's largely safe to update if there are a few features you have to have.

Why is Windows 10 taking so long to reboot after an update?

Bill from Austin, TX

Bill just updated to Windows 10 vs. 2004, and now it takes a long time to boot up. Leo says that it seems to be a known issue with this update. Microsoft has a terrible track record with sufficiently testing updates in beta before it's released. But it could be some software is challenging the system and slowing it down. You could run the system file checker or the online cleanup option to see if it helps. Also, look in your device manager to see if there's any yellow "!" or red "x". Something may have broken. Leo also recommends updating firmware and drivers.
