Windows updates, especially those on Windows 10, and Windows 11 are released monthly, in the Patch Tuesday updates. They are usually medium to big updates, such as the latest 23H2 version, which took quite the space and time to install.

Depending on their size, these updates are installed faster or slower, but if your device installs them slower than usual, there is a simple trick that can be done to make the installation go faster.

According to Windows enthusiast, @thebookisclosed, there is a command under the name of MoUSO Core Worker Process that uses a lot of CPU power and it especially slows down the installation process of Windows updates.
