Patch Tuesday on the second Tuesday of each month is the traditional day for Microsoft to release new cumulative updates. However, Microsoft is beginning to break with tradition by releasing cumulative updates twice in a month on other days of the week. The software giant has just released further cumulative updates for three older Windows 10 versions on a Thursday.

Microsoft has released the latest cumulative updates for Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, the Creators Update and Anniversary Update versions. Note that those are cumulative updates which don’t add anything new to the versions. Cumulative updates only fix bugs in Windows 10 versions.

KB4284822, KB4284830, KB4284833

The latest cumulative updates fix a variety of issues that are too numerous to list here. This page lists all the KB4284822 fixes for the Fall Creators Update. Open this page for a full list of KB4284830 fixes for Windows 10 Creators Update. This Windows support page provides further details for the KB4284833 cumulative update.

Alas, none of the cumulative updates are for the latest April 2018 Update, which has rolled out faster than any other version. There are a few April 2018 Update bugs that really need cumulative update fixes. For example, the Do not allow web search Group Policy Editor option that turns Cortana web searches off no longer works in Windows 10 Pro since the April 2018 Update. This post provides further details about some of the other bugs in the latest Windows version.

Hopefully, Microsoft will also release a cumulative update for the April 2018 Update (version 1803) soon. The cumulative updates for older Windows 10 versions will be automatic ones unless you’ve adjusted Windows Update settings. You can manually check updates by entering ‘updates‘ in Cortana’s search box and selecting Check for updates.
