Windows 10 Patch Tuesday

As a part of Patch Tuesday, Microsoft rolls out to the public a new pack of useful updates that will surely fix some of the issues that we have been struggling with.

In this article we are about to take a more in-depth look at these improvements and keep track of the progress made so far by Microsoft.

Windows 10 v1803 finally lose Edge Legacy

As you all know, Microsoft has made it clear that, starting with July, the 1803 version of Windows 10 will reach the end of mainstream support. What this means is, that there won’t any more optional, non-security releases for this version of the operating system.

This was later changed to up until the end of 2021, because of the current COVID pandemic the world is fighting against.

This update focuses on the removal of the Microsoft Edge Legacy desktop application that is out of support and installs the new Microsoft Edge.

The fact that it was removed means that they finally finished what they started last month when they removed Edge Legacy form all other versions of Windows 10.

Other fixes and updates include security for Windows App Platform and Frameworks, Windows Cryptography, the Microsoft Scripting Engine, as well as the Windows Silicon Platform.

As far as issues with this patch, Microsoft has yet to report any and it seems that secondary effects are out of the question in this instance.
