Microsoft today released a new cumulative update for Windows 10. The update is labelled KB3147461, and it is available for download on all devices running ‘the original’ version of Windows 10 (July 2015 release).
This is the second cumulative update for Windows 10 released today. The other one is KB3147458, which is available for users who run Windows 10 Version 1511. Although two updates were released at the same time, they’re not so similar, as each release brings its own improvements to the system.

It became a common thing for Microsoft to release updates for both public versions of Windows 10 at the same time, because there are still people using both releases.
