The following change log is available for KB4023057:

  • This update may request your device to stay awake longer to enable installation of updates.

    Note The installation will respect any user-configured sleep configurations and also your "active hours" when you use your device the most.

  • This update may try to reset network settings if problems are detected, and it will clean up registry keys that may be preventing updates from being installed successfully.
  • This update may repair disabled or corrupted Windows operating system components that determine the applicability of updates to your version of Windows 10.

When files or folders are compressed, they appear as having two blue arrows overlaid on the icon. Depending on your File Explorer settings, you may see icons that look larger or smaller.

        Don’t encourage him/her/it. Pretentious folks who dislike Windows 10 for things that really aren’t issues but rather emotional beefs brought on from a lack of intelligence or ability shouldn’t be given much room to spread their bullshit. I say this as a Linux user as well – we live in a Windows world. Deal with it and focus on the important stuff in your life.
