Windows 10 December Patch Tuesday changelog
As always, don’t expect this batch of updates to introduce new features to the table. Keep in mind that Patch Tuesday updates are mainly security updates. This means they’ll include security improvements and fixes aimed at patching known vulnerabilities. In this manner, Microsoft makes sure Windows 10 is bulletproof against hackers’ attacks.
Taken into account the fact that this round of updates is the last one this year, we expect these cumulative updates to feature a rich changelog packed with security and system improvements.
Most likely, Microsoft will push new updates to improve Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge security this month as well. As a matter of fact, browser security is extremely important for the tech giant. For this reason, almost all Patch Tuesday updates bring some security improvements for Windows 10’s built-in browser.
We expect Patch Tuesday to bring some Adobe Flash updates as well.
How to install the December 2019 Patch Tuesday updates
You can install the updates automatically via Windows Update. However, if you want to download only specific updates, you can go to the Microsoft Update Catalog website, enter the KB number of the update and then hit the download button.
As always, don’t forget to backup your data just in case anything goes wrong after you’ve installed the updates.
