As is the case each month, Microsoft will generally deliver its first round of updates during the second Tuesday of the month to supply security fixes, and then use the rest of the month to deliver more updates to solve additional problems – some of those happen to be caused by the first round. Without nary an apology, Microsoft calls this next round “quality updates.”
Microsoft has now made available another round of cumulative updates for the following Windows 10 editions (click each to see the list of fixes):
So far, Microsoft’s latest Windows 10 version, 1809, has been left out of the mix. This doesn’t mean that it still won’t see another update. For some unknown reason, 1809 rarely gets the second round of updates the same time as the earlier versions.
These updates resolve some of the more publicly known remaining gotchas from Patch Tuesday, including:
- Addresses an issue that prevents some users from pinning a web link to the Start menu or the taskbar.
- Addresses an issue that causes app-specific registry keys to be deleted after updating an application.
- Addresses an issue that may cause a “STOP 0x1A” error when you use certain applications or log in or log out of a system.
- Addresses an issue in the Timeline feature that causes File Explorer to stop working for some users.
- Addresses an issue that may prevent Internet Explorer from loading images that have a backslash (\) in their relative source path.
- Addresses an issue that may cause applications that use a Microsoft Jet database with the Microsoft Access 95 file format to randomly stop working.
