Microsoft to Roll Out Latest Edge Browser With New, More Accessible Windows Update

A Windows Update is not the sort of thing that most people would be all that interested in, and a big part of the reason why that is the case has to do with the fact that it doesn’t really seem to do anything and it also makes your system somewhat unusable for the duration, during which the update is getting downloaded.

Now, the important thing to realize is that Windows updates are definitely the sort of thing that you should go for because of the fact that they have a tendency to improve security functions and can lead to a more stable experience for you all in all, but at the end of the day most users need to be enticed into downloading such updates and this is why Microsoft has made some changes in this regard.

For one thing, the next Windows update is going to involve a widespread roll out of the Edge browser in its latest Chromium based form. This indicates that the browser is now stable enough to roll out through an update, and you will find that the classic Edge browser that you might have scene is now going to end up being replaced with the Chromium based version which is faster, more efficient, more stable and is generally a decent enough browser that it is fair to say that Microsoft might finally be offering a browser that is actually worth using rather than a browser that would never end up being anyone’s first choice in this regard.

One of the most frequent complaints that people tend to have regarding Windows updates tends to do with the fact that they often take up too much of your bandwidth. Regular updates frequently go into the hundreds of megabytes in size, and some updates are known to contain gigabytes and if they take up all of your bandwidth this would mean that you can’t use anything else on your system.

With improved Delivery Optimization feature users can control how much of their bandwidth the update is able to access in background and foreground. This is going to increase the amount of time any update might take, especially if you look into providing the update download with a very small bandwidth, but this really won’t matter because of the fact that the rest of the things you are doing that rely on the internet would be in no way affected.

If you want to change bandwidth setting for Windows updates you can do so by going into "Update & Security" in PC "Settings", selecting the Delivery Optimization and then Advanced Options and then making the requisite changes in this regard.
