  • Another set of cumulative updates is now rolling out to Windows 10.
  • The updates are available for versions 1809, 1803, 1709, and 1607.

We’re just a week beyond Microsoft’s usual slew of “Patch Tuesday” updates, but the company is now pushing out more cumulative updates for various versions of Windows 10. Today’s releases are available for Windows 10 versions 1809, 1803, 1709, and 1607. There are no security fixes included, but Microsoft has packed in various display issues for Start menu tiles, Internet Explorer, and more.

Here’s a look at the highlights for version 1809, which moves to build 17763.832 with KB4520062:

  • Prevents blank tiles from appearing in the Start menu when you upgrade to Windows 10, version 1809 from any previous version of Windows 10. However, if you have already upgraded to Windows 10, version 1809, installing this update will not remove existing blank tiles.
  • Updates an issue that causes the power consumption for a device in Connected Standby mode to be high.
  • Updates an issue that might display a black screen at startup during the first sign in after installing an update.
  • Updates an issue with Bluetooth that occurs when using certain audio profiles for extended periods.
  • Updates an issue that prevents users from opening the print dialog in Internet Explorer to print a webpage.
  • Updates an issue that causes the Settings app to stop working when you change a Theme.
  • Updates an issue that might prevent a scroll bar from being selected in Internet Explorer.

For version 1803, you’ll see KB4519978, which pushes the build number to 17134.1099:

  • Updates an issue that might display a black screen at startup during the first sign in after installing an update.
  • Updates an issue with Bluetooth when using certain audio profiles for extended periods.
  • Updates an issue that causes a system to stop working during the Windows upgrade process.
  • Updates an issue that may prevent a scroll bar from being selected in Internet Explorer.

The highlight for Windows 10 versions 1709 is that it corrects an issue that would cause the system to fail during the upgrade process. Version 1607, meanwhile, contains that same fix alongside a fix for a bug that would cause a tablet’s screen to rotate unexpectedly.
