As promised, Microsoft has finally released the monthly Patch Tuesday updates, and they are called the September Patch Tuesday Updates.

Like all previous monthly releases, your OS will now receive further enhancements, fixes, new features, and much-needed security improvements.

Speaking of security, those of you that use Microsoft or Adobe products should be aware that the monthly updates also come with CVE fixes, and this month hasn’t failed to deliver in that department, bring up a total of 147 CVEs.

Of course, this depends a lot on what version of Windows 10 you are sporting on your PC, although they are all covered more or less during this update.

Like in previous months, we’ve created this article that will not only showcase the changelog for each individual version of Windows 10, but we will also be providing you with direct download links straight from the Windows Update Catalog.

Thus, go ahead, read what Microsoft has prepared this month for your version of Windows 10, and then go ahead and get the updates.


Updates included in September Patch Tuesday Updates

Windows 10, version 2004
