If you’re running the latest version of Windows 10, you will get KB4512508 which will bump your build to 18362.295 and it includes the following:

  • Updates to improve security when using Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Bluetooth, networking technologies, and input devices such as a mouse, keyboard, or stylus.

  • Security updates to Windows App Platform and Frameworks, Windows Storage and Filesystems, Microsoft Scripting Engine, Windows Input and Composition, Windows Wireless Networking, Windows Cryptography, Windows Datacenter Networking, Windows Virtualization, Windows Storage and Filesystems, the Microsoft JET Database Engine, Windows Linux, Windows Kernel, Windows Server, Windows MSXML, Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Edge.

If you have automatic updates enabled, you should see the update within the next couple of days. Or, to stay on top of things, head to Settings > Update & Security > Microsoft Update and check to get the updates.

As is usually the case, there are no new features, but the cumulative updates include important security patches and overall system improvements. To get the latest patches on your version of Windows 10, head to Settings > Update & Security > Microsoft Update and check. Remember, a full system restart is required to complete the install process.

Keep in mind that there are a few known issues with these updates which vary depending on the version of the version you’re running. Make sure to read Microsoft’s Windows 10 Update History page for release notes for the version you’re running.
