Microsoft has released today new optional patches for Windows version 1909 and older, which follow the April Patch Tuesday updates released a week ago. The builds 18363.815 and 18362.815 are available for the versions 1909 and 1903 of the OS, respectively, with the following fixes:
- Updates an issue that prevents certain apps from opening after you upgrade from a previous version of Windows, and a Bad Image error message appears.
- Updates in an issue that turns off notifications for devices that use a virtual private network (VPN) on a cellular network.
- Updates an issue that prevents you from resuming a Microsoft Xbox game on a Windows device after upgrading from a previous version of Windows.
- Updates an issue that causes a text box that contains multiple lines of text to stop responding in certain scenarios.
- Updates an issue that generates unexpected notifications when you change the default application settings.
- Updates an issue that causes Windows Update to stop responding when you check for updates.
- Updates an issue that fails to print content that is outside of the margins of a document.
Microsoft says that it’s not aware of any known issues in these updates, though the company said the same about the previous Patch Tuesday update which has some issues. As usual, keep in mind that these updates are optional, so you may want to wait for next month’s Patch Tuesday which will include all fixes available in today’s patches.
If you’re still running Windows 10 version 1809 on your PC, the build 17763.1192 is now available to download, and here are the highlights:
- Updates an issue with pasting mixed content of images and text from Microsoft Word into Internet Explorer.
Updates an issue that causes a text box that contains multiple lines of text to stop responding in certain scenarios.
Updates an issue that fails to print content that is outside of the margins of a document.
In case you missed it, Microsoft announced last week that due to the coronavirus outbreak, the final security update for Home and Pro users still running Windows 10 version 1809 will be released on November 10, 2020 instead of May 12, 2020. The company will also stop to automatically update these PCs to the latest Windows 10 release as now is probably not the time to push a major OS update to millions of workers being forced to work from home.
New optional patches are also available today for Windows 10 versions 1803 and 1607, but these are only available for Education and Enterprise users. We invite you to check out Microsoft's support website for more details about these updates.
