    Microsoft have recently collected all updates going back to SP1 and created a 'Convenience update' which contains most of them:
    Windows 7 SP1 and Server 2008 R2 SP1 convenience roll-up now available at a download location near you! (KB3125574)

    This roll-up is currently categorized by Microsoft as “optional”. This means that there is no means by which this update will be automatically applied to any computer. This update is available in the Microsoft Update Catalog at the following location:

    Microsoft Update Catalog

    This 'roll-up' should be extremely handy if one is installing Windows from scratch, it should certainly speed things up anyway.

    :D They aren't calling it Service Pack 2. Who do they think that they are kidding? ;)

    The SP2 moniker I think is coming more from tech sites rather than MS.

    I just think that they should have called it SP2, just like Windows 8.1 should have been Windows 8 SP1. :)

    It certainly rolls off the tongue better than 'Convenience roll-up'... :D

    It sure does! :star:
    In any case, it will be extremely convenient for new 7 installs.
    It's much better than having to wait and wait for all of the updates to download and then wait again for them to install.

    Has anyone tried this?? If it works, that would be great, but right now I like my W10 a lot, so I won't be trying it , but I'm hoping I can use it in my village!:up::star:
    Welcome @allheart55 Good to see you again my friend!

    What would you like to know?? @allheart55 and I have been friends for a long time. I call her Cindy. Cindy has her own repair shop and is on staff on at least 3 help forums that I know of. Cindy does not toot her own horn and I'm sure I'll catch Hell for tooting it for her.
    We have no secrets we won't share here, but be careful what you ask, because you might not want to know every thing!:rofl:
    Cindy is a top on the line repair tech and a builder. She walks the walk and talks the talk. Shes one of my computer heroes:worship: and my Buddy!
    Sorry Cindy. When My friend @kemical asks me some thing, I always give him the truth! I have nothing to hide!

    Lol Gary I was pulling your leg! Instead of 'friend' you accidentally called allheart55 'Fiend'... You know what a fiend is right?

    30c110f5a669e4f548f8d25be2ed42e8. You are too funny, Gary, my friend. Thank you! heart.
    Gary is one of the good guys and very faithful. There's not much he hasn't learned about Windows 10.
    I am trying it this evening and I am downloading it now. I'll let you know. I expect that it will work well.

    Dang spell checker where were you? Thanks @kemical ! I have corrected my bobo. I'm really glad it happened because I wanted to toot Cindy's horn! Cindy is a very good friend. I trust Cindy. If you noticed two friends defended me here, and they are both appreciated. I see the other friend logged on a lot but is being very quite. I'm thinking I'm getting way off topic. I'm sure the OP won't mind too much.;):D

    I'm still learning W10, but I'm getting there! Sorry Friend! I asked my friend Cortana how to spell friend.
    This is what Cortana told me!! Her definition is a little strange however!:rofl:
