Microsoft just released the first post-Anniversary Update cumulative patch for Windows 10. The update is called KB3176495, and was released to all Windows 10 users running the latest version of the system as part of Microsoft’s Patch Tuesday.

KB3176495, just like the majority of cumulative updates released before, brings increased system reliability and security improvements. Here’s exactly what the new cumulative update for Windows 10 version 1607 introduced.

“This update includes quality improvements and security fixes. No new operating system features are being introduced in this update. Key changes include: 
  • Improved reliability for Internet Explorer 11.

  • Addressed issue to keep pen click settings after updating to Windows 10 Version 1607.

  • Addressed issue that may cause Windows 10 Mobile devices to hang after turning Bluetooth on and off very quickly.

  • Security updates to Kernel Mode Drivers, Microsoft Graphics Component, Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer 11, and Windows Authentication Methods.”

Alongside this update, Microsoft rounded out Patch Tuesday by releasing two other cumulative updates for two previous versions of Windows 10, as well. Updates KB3176492 for the initial (July 2015) version of Windows 10 and KB3176493 for Windows 10 version 1511 are also available to users of these versions of the system.
