Feature Update: Windows 10 version 21H2
A feature update to Windows 10 version 21H2 is available to all managed desktops as of 18th April 2023.
Staff can elect to install this at a convenient time as described in check for and install updates below.
From 1st May 2023 PCs that have not received this update will automatically download it and prompt staff to reboot in order to complete the installation.
We recommend that staff proactively start this update at a planned and convenient time (such as at the end of the day), rather than waiting for the automatic installation.
Windows updates are essential to desktop security, can fix functional or reliability problems, and maintain compatibility with other systems. You will be prompted when updates are available, and can configure "active hours" during which your PC will not restart to complete update installation.
Most updates will install in the background with very little impact on performance.
Feature updates are more significant and can take a few hours to install, will impact performance, and require one or more restarts to complete.
