Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB4490481

Microsoft is back with another Cumulative Update for Windows 10 v1809. The update is currently being rolled out to insiders in the Release Preview ring.

The update boosts the Windows 10 operating system build to 17763.404. Most likely, the role of this patch is to test the Patch Tuesday improvements that are scheduled to be rolled out next week.

Windows 10 v1809’s infamous update history

Windows 10 v1809 has been a devastating update for both Microsoft and Windows 10 users. Most of the users were expecting Microsoft to bring Windows 10 19H1 to the release preview ring. However, the company decided to go instead for a new Windows 10 v1809 update. 

The Redmond giant follows a strict policy of testing upcoming updates in the Release Preview before rolling them out to the general public.

Windows 10 users hoped the company might change this policy this year and test more builds of the next 19H1 update instead.

Well, it seems that the best Patch Tuesday that falls on 9th April won’t bring a new Windows 10 OS version to the table. Expect only regular updates for the OS versions currently supported.

Cumulative update KB4490481 has been released along with a servicing stack update KB4493510. Microsoft has yet to release a changelog for the update.

Users started downloading and installing the update soon after it was released. The Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB4490481 update seems to be a stable one as the went without a glitch. 

However, one of the users reported a little issue with the KB4490481 update download process:

Slight pause at 92% but nothing major. All looks ok.
