Microsoft just released cumulative update KB4038792 for Windows 8.1. The update was released as part of this month’s Patch Tuesday, along with new updates for each other supported version of Windows. 

Update KB4038792 is a security update. This means it mainly focuses improving the system’s overall stability and bug fixing. The update brings no new features, but since Windows 8.1 is not Microsoft’s ‘main’ operating system anymore, that’s out of the question anyway. 

Here’s the complete changelog of the update:

  • “Updates to Internet Explorer 11’s navigation bar with search box.

  • Addressed issue in Internet Explorer where undo is broken if character conversion is canceled using IME.

  • Addressed issue in Internet Explorer where graphics render incorrectly.

  • Addressed issue in Internet Explorer where the Delete key functioned improperly.

  • Addressed issue in NPS server where EAP TLS authentication was broken.

  • Re-release of MS16-087- Security update for Windows print spooler components.

  • Security updates to Microsoft Graphics Component, Windows kernel-mode drivers, Windows shell, Microsoft Uniscribe, Microsoft Windows PDF Library, Windows TPM, Windows Hyper-V, Windows kernel, Windows DHCP Server, and Internet Explorer.”
