Microsoft releases Windows 10 build 14393.51, Cumulative Update KB3176495

Perhaps, to iron out the remaining wrinkles some users are experiencing, the Windows team has issued a cumulative update accompanying the Windows 10 Anniversary Update.

Today, August 9, 2016, Windows 10 users should see Windows 10 build 14393.51 aka cumulative update KB3176495 hit their systems. The update, for most users, should take about five to ten minutes to download and install and will require a restart of Windows 10 when completed.

Here’s what’s new:

This update includes quality improvements and security fixes. No new operating system features are being introduced in this update. Key changes include:

  • Improved reliability for Internet Explorer 11.
  • Addressed issue to keep pen click settings after updating to Windows 10 Version 1607.
  • Addressed issue that may cause Windows 10 Mobile devices to hang after turning Bluetooth on and off very quickly.
  • Security updates to Kernel Mode Drivers, Microsoft Graphics Component, Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer 11, and Windows Authentication Methods.

As this is also a Patch Tuesday, we can also speculate that some of the goodies in today’s cumulative update are meant to address possible vulnerabilities and security issues that may have accompanied Windows 10 Anniversary Update.
