    Windows Update History shows both Feature Updates 1903 and 1909 installed

    After I installed the Windows 10 Feature Update from 1903 to 1909 my Windows Update History shows

    Feature Updates (2)

    Feature Update to Windows 10, version 1909 (2)

    Feature Update to Windows 10, version 1903

    Looking in the About page it lists Version 1909 OS Build 18363.720

    In the past when I've installed a Feature Update it only shows the new update. In other words in this case it would only show 1909. Since it shows 1903 also is my computer really upgraded to 1909? Also the (2) after the 1909 is something I don't understand.

    I would appreciate any help on this.

  3. Got v.1903? You Probably Have v.1909 Too

    I've got news for you: If your Windows 10 PC is currently running v.1903 ... then it may
    already have v.1909.

    I'm quoting from the
    Windows IT Pro Blog
    :

    "Windows 10, versions 1903 and 1909 share a common core operating system with an identical set of system files. As a result, the new features in Windows 10, version 1909 were included in the latest monthly quality update for Windows 10, version 1903 (released
    October 8, 2019), but are currently in a dormant/disabled state. These new features will remain dormant until they are turned on via an “enablement package,” a small, quick-to-install “master switch” that simply activates the Windows 10, version 1909 features.

    The enablement package is a great option for installing a scoped feature update like Windows 10, version 1909 as it allows you to update from version 1903 to version 1909 with a single restart, reducing update downtime and, thus, enabling you to take advantage
    of new features right away. Additionally, since Windows 10, versions 1903 and 1909 share a common baseline, applications and drivers that worked with version 1903 are designed to work as-is with version 1909, just like any Windows 10 quality update."

    So, if you receive your updates from Windows Update, as we should, the v.1909 update installation should be faster.

    I couldn't resist ... had to try it. So, after making an image backup, I ran Windows Update. Here's how it went:

    3:58 PM "Getting things ready"
    3:59 PM "Downloading" (14 seconds)
    3:59 PM "Installing"
    4:01 PM "Restarting"
    4:04 PM Back at the desktop and ready to roll!

    Holly *** that was fast!

    P.S. I am not a 'Windows IT Pro.' Not even close. I just enjoy learning about IT.
