Microsoft has just announced that new optional updates are available for Windows 10 versions 1909 and 1903. These new cumulative updates follow similar patches for Windows 10 versions 1809 and older released two days ago.

Windows 10 version 1909 is getting the build 18363.693 today, while the version 1903 is getting the build 18362.693. Because the two versions of the OS share the same core, these two builds include the same quality improvements for Windows Mixed Reality, Windows Search and more. You can check out the highlights below:

  • Updates an issue that prevents the speech platform application from opening for several minutes in a high noise environment.
  • Updates an issue that reduces the image quality in the Windows Mixed Reality (WMR) home environment.
  • Updates an issue that might prevent ActiveX content from loading.
  • Improves the battery performance during Modern Standby mode.
  • Updates an issue that causes Microsoft Narrator to stop working when a user session is longer than 30 minutes.
  • Addresses an issue that adds an unwanted keyboard layout as the default after an upgrade even if you have already removed it.
  • Updates an issue that prevents the Windows Search box from rendering properly.
  • Updates an issue that prevents the printer settings user interface from displaying properly.
  • Updates an issue that prevents some applications from printing to network printers.

Microsoft is currently not aware of any known issues in these two builds, but we still recommend to proceed with caution with optional updates. If you decide to skip them, keep in mind that you’ll still get all these quality fixes and more in next month’s Patch Tuesday.
