New patch for the Windows 10 April 2018 update addresses some issues with Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome

Microsoft has released today a new cumulative update for the Windows 10 April update, which comes just two weeks after this month’s Patch Tuesday (via Neowin). This new patch should appear as “KB4284848” in Windows Update, and installing it will bump the build number to 17134.137.

In the release notes, Microsoft highlighted a fix for an issue that could cause the latest version of Google Chrome to stop working on the latest version of Windows 10. Microsoft Edge is also getting another fix for an issue where the download of a font from a malformed URL could cause the browser to stop working. You can check the full release notes below:

  • Addresses an issue that causes the Video Settings HDR streaming calibration slider to stop working. This is caused by a conflict with the panel brightness intensity settings configured by certain OEMs.
  • Addresses streaming compatibility issues with certain live TV streaming content providers.
  • Addresses an issue where media content previously generated by Media Center doesn’t play after installing the Windows 10 April 2018 update.
  • Addresses an issue in which SmartHeap didn’t work with UCRT.
  • Addresses performance regression in App-V, which slows many actions in Windows 10.
  • Addresses an issue that causes Appmonitor to stop working at logoff if the Settingstoragepath is set incorrectly.
  • Addresses an issue that causes Appmonitor to stop working at logoff, and user settings are not saved.
  • Addresses an issue where client applications running in a container image don’t conform to the dynamic port range.

  • Addresses an issue that causes the latest versions of Google Chrome (67.0.3396.79+) to stop working on some devices.
  • Addresses issues with the Remote Desktop client in which pop-up windows and drop-down menus don’t appear and right-clicking doesn’t work properly. These issues occur when using remote applications.
  • Addresses an issue that causes a connection failure when a Remote Desktop connection doesn’t read the bypass list for a proxy that has multiple entries.
  • Addresses an issue that may cause Microsoft Edge to stop working when it initializes the download of a font from a malformed (not RFC compliant) URL.
  • Addresses an issue where some users may receive an error when accessing files or running programs from a shared folder using the SMBv1 protocol. The error is “An invalid argument was supplied”.
  • Addresses an issue that causes Task Scheduler tasks configured with an S4U logon to fail with the error “ERROR_NO_SUCH_LOGON_SESSION/STATUS_NO_TRUST_SAM_ACCOUNT”.

Microsoft says that there are no known issues with this update, but as usual let us know in the comments if you encouter any problems after installing the new bits.
