Several Windows 10 users are reporting issues with Windows 10 which is quite annoying and frustrating. The Windows Update will just provide one optional update at a time (no option to install multiple optional updates concurrently).

Generally, Microsoft commonly releases new updates that are regarded as optional and the Windows Update tool doesn’t automatically install such updates.

These optional updates usually incorporate several new Windows 10 feature updates, Windows 10 preview cumulative updates, feature experience packs, and a few of the band fixes that are intended to fix a particular bug in the operating system (OS).

But, for more than a year now, Windows 10 will just offer one optional update at once, even while there are several optional updates available for your version of the Windows 10 operating system.

For instance, the lately released Windows 10 21H1 update is prioritized in Windows Update and is provided to the users regardless of any other optional updates.

The annoying part here is, even while this update is for the Windows 10 20H2, Windows Update is not offering to user’s devices till they first install the Windows 10 21H1 update.

Back in 2019, Microsoft unveiled a new “Optional Update Experience” that was aimed to fix this issue and offer you the freedom to pick the optional updates you want to install on your system.

However, this feature isn’t working properly because prior to installing the Windows 10 21H1 feature update, users weren’t provided with the optional KB5004476 update in the Optional Updates screen.

Below is an image that will better demonstrate about what we are trying to explain:

On installing the optional Windows 10 21H1 feature update, users reported having received the recent optional KB500447600B Update.
