Here is a very quick post on KB4471332, an update that hit the streets this December. This is a Patch Tuesday update that Microsoft released to fix a few of the ongoing issues from the October 1809 Update still causing problems.

KB4471332 improvements and fixes

To be honest, this update is not very exciting. Microsoft has finally got round to fixing a problem with the Seek Bar when playing certain types of media files. As it didn’t affect normal playback, I suspect that most people weren’t even aware that this was a problem.

Windows Media Player

In fact, this was a problem caused in the Windows 10 version 1803 update, so while it is nice to have this one fixed, presumably some people have been waiting about 8 months for this. Not exactly speedy service.

What known issues are there?

The surprisingly good news on this update is that for the first time in awhile, there are no known issues with this update.

Any other updates?

Microsoft released KB4471332 on a Tuesday, so we also have some security issues fixed. No idea what the issues were to be honest, but if you have any of the following, they are now more secure than on Monday.

  • Windows Authentication
  • Microsoft Scripting Engine
  • Internet Explorer
  • Windows App Platform and Frameworks
  • Microsoft Graphics Component
  • Windows Storage and Filesystems
  • Windows Wireless Networking
  • Windows Kernel
  • Microsoft Edge

As always, the best way to install updates is by going to Settings > Update and Security > Windows Update > Check for updates. If you want to go down the stand-alone package route, you can go to the Microsoft Update Catalog website.

There aren’t many extra details you need to know, but if you want to check out exactly what Microsoft said, feel free to go to the Microsoft Support page.
