Windows 10: Microsoft rolls out KB3019269 update for build 9879 to address bugs and performance issues

Windows 10: Microsoft rolls out KB3019269 update for build 9879 to address bugs and performance issues

Roughly two weeks ago, Microsoft released Windows 10 build 9879 to Windows Insider Program participants. Those of you who were in the fast ring were able to download and install this build, but faced numerous performance issues and bugs. 

Microsoft has yet to release the build for slow ring participants but today the company has released a small 2MB update (KB3019269) that ‘resolves issues in Windows.’ This update likely fixes a few bugs and improves performance for those who were experiencing issues with Windows 10 build 9879.

Head over to Windows Update and snag this update. Remember, it will only appear for those of you who installed Windows 10 build 9879 (fast ring). The same build is expected to be released this week for slow ring participants and will most likely include this fix as well.

More on this as it develops. Let us know if you notice any new improvements.

Update: this hotfix addresses a 0xAB bluescreen issue. See the official Tweet below:

Thanks for the tip, Anupom!
