Windows 10 Mobile is dead, but Microsoft still cares about it. The tech giant recently rolled out update KB4090912 aimed at fixing a series of issues affecting its mobile platform.

This patch features all the improvements and fixes brought by KB4088782, addressing the following issues:

  • Printing XML documents in Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge won’t start
  • Internet Explorer stops working
  • Internet Explorer is unresponsive in certain scenarios when a Browser Helper Object is installed
  • Online video playback stops responding
  • WPF applications stop running on stylus-enabled devices.

Apart from the bug fixes listed above, KB4090912 also addresses the issue where PDF files cannot be rendered in Microsoft Edge on Windows 10 Phones.

You can automatically download and install KB4090912 from Windows Update.

Microsoft says there are no known issues in this update, which means that the whole download and install process should work properly.

Windows 10 Mobile is in maintenance mode

Although the Redmond giant does roll out a few Windows 10 Mobile updates from time to time, it is worth mentioning that the OS is in maintenance mode.

This means that Microsoft will no longer add any new features to the OS but will still continue to deploy various bug fixes and system improvements.

Support for Windows 10 Mobile will end next year, and Microsoft already made it clear that it would not develop a new Mobile OS in the future.

However, recent rumors revealed that the company may not have abandoned the mobile platform altogether. The company is reportedly working on developing a so-called modular Windows 10 OS.

This operating system is going to be an adaptive one, meaning that it will feature a fully adaptive UI depending on the hardware it’s installed on.

Microsoft is expected to offer more details about this new OS in the coming months. Who knows, maybe this modular OS could be released this fall.
