  • Question

  • Hi Everyone,  We have a SharePoint 2016 Farm and i see couple of updates  for SharePoint 2016 in  Windows Update (Windows Update >> Office 2016 >> KB4475520.) 

    My question here is. What is the difference between Installing SharePoint patches from Windows Update Versus download the KB and Install SharePoint updates.
