Microsoft is really busy with updates today. After releasing the new build for Windows 10 Preview, the company just rolled out the new cumulative update KB3124262 for Windows 10. The new update changes the build number to 10586.71 and (probably) brings some bug fixes and improvements.

The update should be available for all Windows 10 users by now, so if you still didn’t update your Windows 10 computer, just head to Windows Update and download it. The update is listed under the name “Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3124262).”

Since it’s the cumulative update, Microsoft didn’t provide any official info about features of this update, which is a common practice at the company, when delivering updates of this kind. This also means that KB3124262 contains all previously-released fixes and improvements from previous cumulative updates, so if you somehow missed one previous cumulative update, you’ll get everything with this one.

Microsoft to change its policy about cumulative updates?

Microsoft doesn’t provide any info about cumulative updates, but a huge amount of users is demanding the company to do so. Despite the huge number of demands, Microsoft continues with its principles, which brings frustration to the Windows community.

But, this could change sometime in the future, at least for some users. Terry Myerson, head of Windows, said that there’s a chance the company will start to provide changelogs of cumulative update, but only to enterprise users, because IT admins need more info about what they’re installing. But, users also want to know what a certain update brings, so this decision doesn’t make much sense.

KB3124262 is here, but we don’t know much about it. As soon as some users report some issues online, that they think are caused by this cumulative update, we’ll get you updated with the ‘issues article.’ Stay tuned
