Among the patches released include KB4457138 (OS Build 15063.1324) and KB4457142 (OS Build 16299.665). Both the patches were released on September 11 as part of the usual patch Tuesday ritual followed at Microsoft wherein new patches and fixes are released every month.

Among the applications and features that benefit of stability improvements from the update KB4457138 and KB4457142 include:

Both the updates are programmed to download and install automatically as part of the usual update procedure for Windows 10. However, for those who have disabled automatic update process or have paused the process can also download the specific updates from the Microsoft support page for the same. However, for those who have already updated their device may have also received the above patches as well.
