It’s that time of the month again with Patch Tuesday. Microsoft today is releasing cumulative updates for all supported versions of Windows 10. If you’re running Windows 10 1903 aka “May 2019 Update” or version 1909 aka “November 2019 Update” your patch will come in the form of KB456483. If you’re running the latest release version 2004 aka “May 2020 Update” your update comes in the form of KB4565503.

Of course, with most cumulative updates, there are no new features to report. But it does include a number of fixes and improvements for the OS.

  • Addresses an issue in certain apps that use the ImeMode property to control Input Method Editor (IME) mode in Windows 10, version 2004 (the May 2020 Update).
