Microsoft releases June Patch Tuesday updates for shipping versions of Windows 10

Microsoft is rolling out today new Patch Tuesday updates for the shipping versions of Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile. If you’re running the Windows 10 Creators Update on your PC, today’s cumulative update should appear as “KB4022725” in Windows Update, and installing it will bump the build number to 15063.413.

You may also see a separate update for Windows 10 version 1703 labeled “KB4022405” in Windows Update, though it’s not clear what this one is about. On Mobile, the cumulative update is labeled “2017-06 Update for Windows 10 1703 for arm-based Phone devices,” and installing it will bump the build number to 15063.414.

Like all Patch Tuesday updates, this cumulative update includes both security fixes and “quality improvements,” and here is the full changelog:

  • Addressed issue where the user may need to press the space bar to dismiss the lock screen on a Windows 10 machine to log in, even after the logon is authenticated using a companion device.
  • Addressed issue with slow firewall operations that sometimes results in timeouts of Surface Hub’s cleanup operation.
  • Addressed issue with a race condition that prevents Cortana cross-device notification reply from working; users will not be able to use the remote toast activation feature set.
  • Addressed issue where the Privacy Separator feature of a Wireless Access Point does not block communication between wireless devices on local subnets.
  • Addressed issue on the Surface Hub device where using ink may cause a break in the touch trace that could result in a break in inks from the pen.
  • Addressed issue where Internet Explorer 11 may ignore the “Send all sites not included in the Enterprise Mode Site List to Microsoft Edge” policy when opening a Favorites link.
  • Addressed additional issues with time-zone information and Internet Explorer.
  • Security updates to Windows kernel, Microsoft Windows PDF, Windows kernel-mode drivers, Microsoft Uniscribe, Device Guard, Internet Explorer, Windows Shell, and Microsoft Edge. For more information about the security vulnerabilities resolved, please refer to the Security Update Guide.

If you’re still running the Windows version 1607 (aka the “Anniversary Update”) or the older version 1511 (“Threshold 2”) on your PC, you will also receive Patch Tuesday updates today but the dedicated changelogs have yet to appear on Microsoft’s Windows 10 Update history website.
