Windows 10 KB4093105 fixes and improvements

Here are some of the most important bug fixes featured in this update:

  • Fixed an issue that causes the cursor to unexpectedly move to center of the screen when changing the display mode.
  • Addresses an issue that caused updates for large game apps to fail.
  • Fixed an issue that removes user-pinned folders or tiles from the Start menu in some cases.
  • Addresses an issue that caused invisible apps to appear in the Start menu.
  • Addresses an issue that causes Skype and Xbox to stop working.
  • Microsoft also fixed an issue preventing Windows Hello from generating good keys when it detects weak cryptographic keys.
  • Browsers should no longer prompt for credentials in a loop when using the Office Chrome extension.
  • The minimum password length in Group Policy has been increased to 20 characters.
  • The right-click context menu for encrypting and decrypting files using Windows Explorer is available again.
  • Addressed the issue where Microsoft Edge stopped working after a few seconds.
  • Addresses an issue that causes modern applications to reappear after upgrading the OS version even though those applications have been deprovisioned.
  • Fixed an issue in which running an application as an administrator causes the application to stop working when pasting the user name or password into the user elevation prompt (LUA).
  • Addresses an issue that occurs when a user with a roaming user profile first logs on to a machine running Windows 10, version 1607, and then logs off. Later, if the user tries to log on to a machine running Windows 10, version 1703, and opens Microsoft Edge, Microsoft Edge will stop working.
