Microsoft on Thursday is set to discuss the future of the Windows desktop. (Get ready for Windows 11.) Before that happens, I’d like to provide Microsoft with some unrequested feedback from an IT admin perspective on what still needs to be fixed in Windows 10.
First, can we have a normal human readable Windowsupdate.log — please? Originally,m we were told the log file was changed to a PowerShell convertible event log to save space on the hard drive. But given the bloating of the WinSXS folder in Windows 10, that justification seems a bit hollow. In the meantime, when you use the PowerShell command Get-WindowsUpdateLog cmdlet, the resulting event log is difficult to parse and understand. Microsoft? Bring back a plain text event log.
