Microsoft Releases January Patch Tuesday Updates for Windows 10

It’s the first Patch Tuesday of 2020 and Microsoft today is releasing cumulative updates for all supported versions of Windows 10.

It’s the first Patch Tuesday of the new year. Today Microsoft is releasing cumulative updates for all supported versions of Windows 10. If you are running Windows 10 1903 aka “May 2019 Update” or version 1909 aka “November 2019 Update” your update will come in the form of KB4528760. Note that both versions 1903 and 1909 will get the same cumulative update version moving forward.

As usual, there are no new features but the update includes important security fixes that resolve vulnerabilities to different components of Windows 10.

KB4528760 for Windows 10 Version 1903 and 1909

Today’s update will bump Windows 10 1903 to build 18362.592 and Windows 10 1909 to build 18363.592. Here’s what’s included:

Security updates to Windows App Platform and Frameworks, Windows Input and Composition, Windows Management, Windows Cryptography, Windows Storage and Filesystems, the Microsoft Scripting Engine, and Windows Server.

Older versions of Windows 10 are also getting a cumulative update today with the exception of version 1511. There are a few known issues with these updates which vary for each version. Make sure to read the documentation on the Windows 10 Update History page for your version’s release notes.

If automatic updates enabled on your system, you should see the new updates in the next couple of days. Or, if you can stay on top of things by manually heading to Settings > Update & Security > Microsoft Update to check.

If you have any issues with your PC after installing the update which aren’t resolved by Microsoft’s documented workarounds, you can roll them back. For more on how to do that, check out: How to Uninstall a Windows 10 Cumulative Update.

It should also be noted that Microsoft ends Windows 7 support today. So this is the final round of updates it will get. If you or someone you know is still running Windows 7 on their machine they should move to Windows 10 asap. For more, check out our article: Microsoft is Ending Support for Windows 7, Now What?
