    Microsoft moved the update functionality from the Control Panel to the Settings application in Windows 10.

    If you compare the functionality, you may notice that Windows 10 lacks options to display or install optional updates.

    Optional updates can be Microsoft updates, products or third-party products or updates. A check on a Windows 10 Professional system returned various Intel driver updates as well as Microsoft Silverlight as optional updates or installations.

    While you may be able to install these updates using other methods, for instance, by downloading the programs or updates directly, it was always convenient to install updates this way.
