Better use group policy editor as no one make notes about added or changed registry values and they also can change over time which end with system problems in worst case

On Windows 10 Home, there isn't included by default Group Policy Editor, of course, it's possible trying to install/enable manually "gpedit.msc"

Cutting corners: The Windows Device Manager remains a valuable troubleshooting interface, but one that has often left users disappointed whenever they relied on its driver update feature to fix related woes. Microsoft has silently removed that functionality as of Windows 10 version 2004 (May Update), leaving users with the option to browse and install pre-downloaded drivers locally, via third-party tools, or going to the Settings app to check online for latest drivers available under Windows Update.

Users running the latest version of Windows 10 May Update will no longer be able to use the Device Manager to check online for driver updates. The change, spotted by WindowsLatest, seemingly went live as part of Microsoft's recently released cumulative update preview for Windows 10 version 2004.

While many novice and experienced PC users still head to the Device Manager to try and fix any malfunctioning hardware/software issues, the program has rarely been of use when it comes to searching and installing drivers from the web. It makes sense, therefore, for Microsoft to disable this functionality that usually ended up disappointing anyway.

Something to look forward to: Have you ever installed a major Windows 10 update and thought, “Right, so what did that do?” Microsoft isn’t always very explicit about what changes an update has introduced, but they'll soon become a lot clearer.

It’s often the case that the most noticeable changes a big Windows update brings are bugs in the system, leaving people to wonder why they even bothered. There are some new features that Microsoft highlights from time to time, but they’re few and far between.

In the new Windows 10 build 20190, which is now available to Insiders in the Dev Channel, Microsoft has introduced the post-update experience.
“We know that it doesn’t always feel clear what changed with a major update, or even how you can learn about and try out new features and improvements. This means that updates can feel time-consuming without real benefit to you, and we want to change that,” writes Microsoft.

If optional updates have been detected, "view optional updates" is displayed below the check for updates button. The page that opens lists all detected optional updates sorted by group, e.g. driver updates. Checkboxes are provided to install some or all of the optional updates on the device.

Windows Update will install drivers automatically on the device to ensure that all components and installed devices will work properly. The optional drivers are useful if issues are encountered while using these devices.

Windows users who have used the Device Manager to search for updated drivers for selected devices on the system can't use it anymore for that, as everything is now handled directly on the Windows Updates page of the Settings application.

Microsoft confirms issues with Windows 10 2004 drive optimizer
At the moment, it appears that the fix could be included in next week’s optional update, also known as “C” preview release. This month’s optional update is expected to arrive next week.

@Gandalf_The_Grey Do you think its best to install the update in September?
Well there are three issues still on investigating on Windows 10 Health Dashboard and we have the optimize drives issue.
I suggest waiting and see after the next patch Tuesday what the status is.
If you look at 1909 there are no known open issues on the health dashboard.
So that is a safe release to be on now.
In the past we had the ready for business announcement, but unfortunately not anymore.

A friend said this:
"That is okay, but when you see the link to download and install, that means your device is compatible."

Does that mean that I wouldn't run into problems?
