PROBLEMS CAUSED BY LAST NIGHT'S WU, ESPECIALLY INVOLVING NOTEPAD - WINDOWS 10

I'd been working on my laptop since 11pm last night (UK - it's 1:07am now). When shutting it down I saw that there had been a WU - Cumulative Update for Windows 10 version 1809 for x64-based Systems. I powered it up again and found the following had happened:

(1) 40 or so icons had appeared on my desktop - at least 50% of these were for old notes made on Notepad.

(2) four Word documents, included my template Word (I'd changed the font & font size four days ago) had been auto-recovered and I had to decide which ones to keep.

Has this happened to anyone else?

Update - when I was removing the icons I found that 20 or so were notepad notes I'd made, so I've changed the title of this.

I'd been working on my laptop since 11pm last night. When shutting it down an hour or so later I saw that there had been a Cumulative Update for Windows 10 version 1809 for x64-based Systems. I powered it up again and found the following had happened:

(1) four Word documents had been auto-recovered and I had to decide which ones to keep.

They included my template Word (I'd changed the font & font size four days ago)

(2) 40 or so icons had appeared on my desktop.

On removing the icons, I found that 20 or so were notes I'd made on Notepad over the past month.

Is it just me it's happened to? Hoping someone will help.
