Patch Tueday Windows 10 Update

It’s that time of the month again! Patch Tuesday is here and I know that every one of you tech enthusiasts is impatient to read about the new updates prepared by Microsoft.

Its been a bit hard to predict what the company had in store for us, with all the projects they got going on at the same time. Keeping up with these adjustments and developments is a must for every self-respecting tech aficionado.

Windows 10, version 1909

This cumulative update is dedicated to an issue that cause scroll bar controls to appear blank on the screen and not function at all. This problem is known to affect 32-bit applications that run on 64-bit Windows 10.

Keep in mind that HScrollBar and VScrollBar controls are also compromised.

Other improvements were applied to the Windows App Platform as well as Frameworks, the Windows Kernel, the Microsoft Scripting Engine, and the Windows Silicon Platform.

The only know issues that this patch brings is that System and user certificates could be lost when you update a device from Windows 10, version 1809, or later to a newer version of Windows 10.

Another piece of useful information is that only devices that have already installed the Latest cumulative update (LCU), released September 16 2020, will be suffering from this.

Remember that this only happens when managed devices are updated using outdated bundles or media through an update management tool such as Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) or the Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager.

Another war to become vulnerable to this nuisance is using outdated physical media or ISO images that do not have the latest updates integrated.

Windows 10 v21H1 is almost here and there is a ton of new features coming so, plenty of reasons to be excited about.

Stay tuned for more information about the upcoming patches and updates released by Microsoft every Tuesday. Tell us what you think about v21H1 in the comment section below.
