Just a few days after releasing the previous update for Windows 10 Preview, Microsoft released yet another patch for Insiders. The latest update is called KB3176927, and just like the previous one introduces a handful of improvements to the system. It is currently available to all Insiders on the Fast ring.

KB3176927 is a cumulative update, which means it features every previously released fix and improvement for the latest Windows 10 Preview build. So, in case you didn’t install the previous patch, you’re covered by this release. This is also the second consecutive update Microsoft announced via the Insider Hub app for Windows 10.

As we said, the new update just fixes some previously present issues and improves reliability and stability of the system. Microsoft fixed some performance problems with Microsoft Edge extensions, the Store app licensing issue, and more.

Here’s the complete changelog for the update:

  • We have improved reliability and performance of Microsoft Edge with AdBlock and LastPass extensions enabled. These extensions should continue to work after installing other extension updates from the Store.
  • We fixed an issue causing battery to drain due to runaway CPU processes while a device is idle. We also fixed a battery life issue due to the proximity sensor always running on some devices.
  • We fixed an issue causing Store apps to stop launching due to a licensing issue.
  • We have fixed an issue that results in Windows Updates being delayed on systems with Connected Standby.
  • We fixed an issue where the Korean IME would not have the correct composition on some custom TSF3 edit controls on PC.
  • We fixed an issue where you might not be able to type in text into Search or some Store apps without having to restart the process.
  • We have fixed an issue where keyboard input on some Windows tablet devices would not rotate to landscape normally.

As we’ve been talking about for a week, build 14393 is most likely the Anniversary Update RTM, therefore Microsoft won’t release any new builds until its release to the public. However, we’ll probably receive a few more cumulative updates like this one until August 2nd.

Since this is a cumulative update, no bigger problems are expected for those who install it. But, in case you encounter any problems after installing the update, let us know in the comments.
