Microsoft recently rolled out Windows 10 KB4051963, adding a series of improvements and bug fixes to the Fall Creators Update OS.

The update addresses a script-related bug that may cause Internet Explorer to stop working.

KB4051963 also fixes the issue where apps may stop responding for users who rely on Internet or web proxies that use PAC script configurations.

So, if you encountered various issues where Outlook cannot connect to Office365 or Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge cannot successfully render content (local computer content and web content included), simply install this update on your computer to fix them.

If you’re a gamer, and particularly a fan of Forza Motorsport 7 and Forza Horizon 3, install KB4051963 to fix the issue that prevents these two games from running on certain high-end gaming laptop configurations.

Speaking of Forza Motorsport 7 and Forza Horizon 3, check out the troubleshooting guides below to learn how to fix common bugs affected the games:
