Windows 10 KB4051963

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:

Other important fixes and improvements include:

  • Addressed a performance regression when users run full-screen Microsoft DirectX 9 games and applications.
  • Fixed the issue where user selections for Feedback Frequency in Settings > Privacy > Feedback & diagnostics aren’t saved.
  • Addressed the issue where RNDIS5 networking devices don’t get a valid IP address or don’t show network connectivity.
  • If a user manually changes the system’s time zone and doesn’t log off or restart, the new time should now display correctly on the Lockscreen clock.
  • Addressed the issue that prevented some Epson and TM (POS) printers to print on x86 and x64-based systems.
