While I, along with many, think this should have been done from day one of
any OS, at least it's here now!


Windows 10 update history - Windows Help:



We're committed to our customers and strive to incorporate their feedback,
both in how we deliver Windows as a service and the info we provide about
Windows 10. In response to this feedback, we're providing more details about
the Windows 10 updates we deliver through Windows Update. You'll see a
summary of important product developments included in each update, with
links to more details. This page will be regularly refreshed, as new updates
are released.


We're currently delivering updates to two distinct Windows 10 branches. 

The July initial launch branch (build 10240), and the November update branch
(build 10586). We introduced new operating system features in November after
having previewed, or "flighted", them with our Windows Insiders between July
and November. Most customers have already been moved automatically from the
July branch to the November branch. 

Windows 10 Professional, Enterprise, and Education edition customers can
defer the update to the November branch and stay on the July feature set
longer - as long as 10 years for some Enterprise customers. For more info,
see Windows 10 servicing options


Windows 10 updates are cumulative of all previous updates. Installing the
latest one makes your device current. Windows Store apps are updated through
the Windows Store. Details about app updates are provided on a per app


The following sections list some key improvements included in each update.
