WIndows 10 input devices

The first set of Patch Tuesday updates for the year has just hit live. The Patch Tuesday January 2020 updates bring another set of bug fixes, security patches, and some new features for Windows 10 users.

One major feature present is a general improvement of the way the OS will handle input devices.

The official changelog of most Patch Tuesday updates mentions this:

  • Updates to improve security when using input devices such as a mouse, keyboard, or stylus.

After you install the latest updates, you should have better control of pretty much all peripherals that you attach to your PC. This means better response times and fewer issues and incompatibilities from mice, keyboards, stylus pens, and other devices of the sort.

No more Patch Tuesday updates for Windows 7

Keep in mind that this round of patch is also the last one to have updates for Windows 7. As of today, the OS has reached the end of its life, and users are urged to upgrade to Windows 10 immediately.

You can get the latest set of updates by turning your Windows Update to automatic. Additionally, you can use the Windows Update Catalog to download specific updates that you may be interested in.
