Microsoft testing a feature called Update Stack Packages via the Windows Insider Program. The company says this feature is supposed to improve the Windows update process.The Update Stack Package will help ensure that your PC has the highest likelihood of successfully installing new updates with the best and least disruptive experience available.

The Update Stack Package will be limited to a very small set of update-related system files that are developed independently of the OS, packages will also be delivered to Insiders through Windows Update just like builds and cumulative updates.

Microsoft didn’t say if the feature would be limited to Windows 11, how it relates to the servicing stack updates already used to streamline the Windows update process, or when it’s expected to expand beyond the Dev Channel.

Microsoft didn’t immediately respond to a request for more information about Update Stack Packages. Dev Channel members of the Windows Insider Program can experiment with the feature via Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22478.
