Windows 10 will now automatically uninstall borked updates

Microsoft brings Android apps on Windows 10 PCs

To deal with the inevitable botched installs before you start angry-tweeting, Microsoft's added a new capability to Windows 10 that makes it automatically uninstall any update that's preceded a failed startup. Occasionally, these updates can fail due to incompatibility or issues in new software. Now, for those serious instances when a patch causes startup issues, the OS will identify the last installed update and automatically remove it.

This new feature is welcome, as the general advice for people who are experiencing problems after installing an update is to uninstall the update to see if that fixes things.

KB4482887 nearly certainly won't be the last Windows 10 update with problems, though.

Microsoft has said that Windows 10 will start removing installed Windows Updates that cause problems in starting or running your device at peak efficiency.

In a masterful performance, Foles completed 28 of 43 passes for 373 yards and three touchdowns as well as one interception. But the Jacksonville Jaguars are apparently willing to think that Foles can be PLAYOFF FOLES for an entire season.

According to Windows Latest, which discovered the documentation, Microsoft published the support document with no official announcement, and it apparently even blocked search engines from discovering the page. This is only done when all other automatic recovery attempts have been unsuccessful.

The screen mirroring for Android apps Windows 10 feature is also available in the beginning to Surface Go users and Microsoft also states that the list of supported devices will be expanded in the near future for both the PC and the phone platforms.

So, you've spent your life savings on a mammoth rig; everything runs butter-smooth; and bam, you're hit with a crippling Windows 10 update that brings your gaming performance to a crawl. The article's title, "Why were recently installed updates removed?" pretty much summarizes what it's about. This will give Microsoft and our partners the opportunity to investigate the failure and fix any issues.

Microsoft has quietly updated a support document to let us know that Windows 10 will have a crack at uninstalling borked updates - just in time for patch Tuesday.
