Microsoft June 2020 Patch Tuesday: largest ever with 129 fixes:
Today is Microsoft's June 2020 Patch Tuesday, and as many Windows administrators will be routinely screaming at computers, please be nice to them!

With the release of the June 2020 Patch Tuesday security updates, Microsoft has released one advisory for an Adobe Flash Player update and fixes for 129 vulnerabilities in Microsoft products.

Of these vulnerabilities, 11 are classified as Critical, 109 as Important, 7 as Moderate, and 2 as Low.

This is the largest Patch Tuesday update ever released by Microsoft, with the second-largest being 115 fixes in March 2020, and the third-largest with 113 fixes in April 2020.

This month there are no zero-day or known unpatched vulnerabilities.

Users should install these security updates as soon as possible to protect Windows from known security risks.

I did not know that would you know the differences between 2004 and 1909 as huge?
Check out this article from How-To Geek. It lists everything what's new in 2004.

It's a joke. Don't go deleting things in the Windows folder if you don't know what it is. Just use the Disk Cleanup mechanism after updating.
I wouldn't clean Windows Updates with Disk Cleanup immediately after updating. These files are kept for a reason; in case something happens, that you can easily go back to the previous version. Once you clean that, you may not be able to get back and will have to deal with the issue.

Use update for a while (like few days) and if you don't notice any issues, then clean Windows Update. I, personally, never clean WU with Disk Cleanup and never had any issues. I have plenty of space on C: and D:, so I really don't have a reason to clean it. But I did notice that Windows Update gets cleaned while updating to the new version of Windows (feature update).

That's what my system image is for. I don't trust Windows to roll something back without making a mess.

This update was like childbirth, excruciatingly slow and buggy, but finished without apparent issues. This was probably the worst update I've ever experienced. I rarely criticize M$ but the bloat just continues on and on, and on ...

@Marko :) The one really nice feature is the the cloud reset. It will make life easier for many users.
