Microsoft today released its first cumulative update for Windows 10 which brings non-security improvements to enhance functionality. It also has previously released bug fixes, but if you already have those installed, you will only get the new parts of the update.
There are no new features in this update, but it does contain a ton of small fixes, so you should notice better overall stability and performance. This is the first major update for Windows 10 just one week after the official release on July 29th.
Here’s a summary of what Microsoft say’s on its support page:
This update includes non–security-related changes to enhance the functionality of Windows 10 through new features and improvements.
Windows 10 updates are cumulative. Therefore, this package contains all previously-released fixes (see KB 3074683). If you have installed previous updates, only the new fixes that are contained in this package will be downloaded and installed to your computer.
Of course, you will get this update installed automatically, but if you want to jump on it now, it’s available by going to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update. Note that a restart is required to complete this update.
For a full list of what is contained in this cumulative update, you can check out this Microsoft Support page.
