Everything you need to know about the October Patch Day for Windows 10

Microsoft October Patch Day for Windows 10

Last Updated on December 7, 2022 by Rizwan

Exhaustive details on the October Patch Day for Windows 10 from Microsoft.

In October, Microsoft inaugurated Patch Day by releasing updates for all Windows editions. There are updates for older versions of Windows 10, in addition to patches for the most recent release. There is a dedicated thread for discussing the Windows 11 update patch.

As they fix bugs and enhance functionality, the upgrades are highly recommended for all users. Microsoft has provided the Windows 10 update history and knowledge base articles detailing all changes and possible variations for desktop, server, or HoloLens.

Alterations in the area of security

Since May 2021, Microsoft has packaged the newest Operating System Servicing Stack Update (SSU) with the latest Long-Term Servicing Channel Update (LCU). Currently, the patch day update from March 2022 is required, which means that no specific SSU is required to be installed beforehand. For those still using an earlier version of the LCU, the first step is to install the SSU updates that are available independently.

As a word of warning, Microsoft’s knowledge base articles might not be readily available right from the get-go with the new update. That’ll probably alter really rapidly, though. However, the updated versions are already available in the Microsoft Update Catalog. You can use the following checklist to verify that you have the most recent version installed. There, you may find the most up-to-date build numbers for each Windows release. To see what version of Windows you’re running, press Windows + R to bring up the Run menu, then type “WinVer” to bring up the version display.
