    Hello All,

    We came up with the following naming convention to avoid confusion for windows 10 individual patches.  From this month (2020-03) onwards we use the proposed naming convention.
     
    YYYY-MM <Update Type or Name> - Win10-Server201X-<KBnumber>-<bit>-<releaseID(s)>
    Where <Update Type or Name> is Cumulative Update, Security Update, Net Framework, Servicing Stack, Adobe Flash Player
    For example, if we take article KB4540670 for 64bit , the patch is common for both Windows 10 Version 1607 and Windows Server 2016.  So we publish only a single patch for both the platforms.

    The patch name looks like as below in Patch Manager.
     2020-03 Cumulative Update - Win10-Server2016-KB4540670-x64-1607
    Search pattern for Windows 10 patches :
    2020-03 Cumulative Update Win10
    Search pattern for Windows Server 2016 patches :
    2020-03 Cumulative Update Server2016

    And, IntelliRollup naming convention is changed as follows.
    CA - Win 10/Server 2016-2019 - Security IntelliRollup v2003.00
