For whatever the case, you might be still running Windows 10 RTM and have yet move over to TH2. While we can’t understand why, chances are you have valid reasons for doing so. Microsoft knows of your strange decisions and has decided to continue supporting Windows 10 RTM with updates.

These updates only come around monthly, so we urge users to upgrade to take advantage of more frequent updates in order to stay ahead of the curve.

KB3163912 is the new update, which ultimately brings the build number to 10240.17024. Here’s the complete changelog for those who are interested:

This update includes quality improvements and security fixes. No new operating system features are being introduced in this update. Key changes include:

  • Improved reliability of Internet Explorer 11, Windows Explorer, and Windows Update.
  • Fixed issue in the NT File system (NTFS) that caused some systems to hang while restarting.
  • Improved support for USB 3.0 to mount Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) CD-ROM devices.
  • Fixed issue that caused some drivers to fail during installation.
  • Fixed issue that caused some apps to become unresponsive when used with an Input Method Editor.
  • Fixed additional issues in Microsoft Graphics component, Internet Explorer 11, Scheduled Tasks, and .NET Framework.
  • Security updates for Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Print Spooler, Windows Kernel, Secure Kernel, Kernel Mode Drivers, .NET Framework, JScript, and VBScript.

As one would expect, there isn’t anything major here, just improvements and fixes to keep the operating system running smoothly.

While the software giant is busy releasing updates for Windows 10 RTM, the Attorney General is currently investigating Windows 10 upgrade issues that computer users have been reporting. (If you’re fed up with Windows 10, how about running Ubuntu on top of the Microsoft operating system?)
