As you already know that Windows 10 is a service, it gets better through periodic software updates via the Windows Updates. If you have already enabled the automatic updates, its automatically downloads and updates all or most of the updates.


There are some updates that Microsoft feels like an unimportant one but good to have. Microsoft marks those as an Optional Update and that requires user intervention to download and install. The latest Windows 10 cumulative update (KB5005565) is one of them.


As the Windows 10 versions 21H1, 20H2, and 2004 share a common core operating system and an identical set of system files, this update comes to all those listed operating system versions.
