Updating Windows 10 devices

For machines connected directly to Windows Update, we provide a seamless experience to preserve language packs, language features, and other optional content.

For on-premises environments, there are different options available to organizations to update their managed PCs to the latest Windows 10 feature update. See the blog post on Language pack acquisition and retention for enterprise devices for an outline of the various options available depending on the Windows 10 release.

  • Language features
  • Local Experience Packs
