Microsoft has just released new Patch Tuesday updates for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile, which bring another series of quality fixes for all shipping versions of the OS. If you’re running the Fall Creators Update on your PC, today’s update should appear as “KB4054517” In Windows Update, and it will bump the build number to 16299.125.

The changelog isn’t very long this month, but there are some important fixes for the Windows 10 touch keyboard, bluetooth, Windows Defender and more. You can check all the details below:

  • Updates Internet Explorer’s default visibility for the button that launches Microsoft Edge.
  • Addresses issue where Windows Defender Device Guard and Application Control block some applications from running, even in Audit-Only Enforcement Mode.
  • Addresses issue to reset PLC bit on U0/U3 transitions.
  • Addresses issue with personalized Bluetooth devices that don’t support bonding.
  • Addresses issue where the touch keyboard doesn’t support the standard layout for 88 languages.
  • Addresses issue where the touch keyboard for a third-party Input Method Editor (IME) has no IME ON/OFF key.
  • Addresses additional issues with updated time zone information.
  • Addresses issue where, when using System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM), the user can’t copy or clone virtual machines (VM). The error message is “0x80070057- Invalid parameter”. This issue affects the VMM UI and PowerShell scripts used for VM cloning and copying.
  • Security updates to the Microsoft Scripting Engine, Microsoft Edge, and Windows Server.

Microsoft says that there are no known issues with this update, which is good to know as this is probably the last cumulative update we’ll see this year. Still, please let us know in the comments if you experience any issues after installing this new build.
