Microsoft regularly keeps all versions of Windows 10 updated. In that manner, Redmond just released a cumulative update for the initial version of Windows 10 (July 2015 release). The cumulative update is labelled KB3192440 and is available to all users who still run this version of the system.

As is the case with all cumulative updates, KB3192440 introduces system improvements and bug fixes. Cumulative updates for Windows 10 usually don’t introduce new features and KB3192440 is not an exception. The update fixed some known issues in both Windows 10’s browsers (IE 11, and Microsoft Edge), along with some additional flaws.

Here’s the complete changelog of cumulative update KB3192440 for Windows 10 version 1507:

  • Improved reliability of Windows graphics device interface (GDI).

  • Addressed issue causing printer drivers to not install correctly after installing security update KB317005.

  • Addressed issue causing sign-in errors if a password is entered incorrectly or a new password doesn’t meet password complexity requirements after installing security update KB3167679.

  • Addressed issue that causes Internet Explorer 11 to fail sometimes when using a user-defined style sheet.

  • Improved support for networks by adding new entries to the Access Point Name (APN) database.

  • Improved support for websites by updating the HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) preload list.

  • Addressed issue with revised daylight saving time.

  • Addressed additional issues with Internet Explorer 11 and licensing.

  • Security updates to Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer 11, kernel-mode drivers, Microsoft Graphics Component, Windows registry, and diagnostic hub.

To install this update, just head over to the Settings app> Updates & security and check for updates. Besides KB3192440, Microsoft also released cumulative updates for both newer versions of Windows 10. Cumulative update KB3192441 was released for Windows 10 version 1511 while Windows 10 version 1607 received cumulative update KB3194798.
