This latest round of updates will bump your Windows 10 October 2018 update build to 17763.379 and includes the following list of fixes and improvements.

  • Addresses an issue in Microsoft HoloLens with tracking and device calibration that has affected some users. You may notice improvement 10-15 minutes after installing this update, but we recommend resetting the holograms for best results.
  •  Addresses an issue that may cause users to receive “Error 1309” while installing or uninstalling certain types of MSI and MSP files.
  • Addresses an issue that may degrade graphics and mouse performance with desktop gaming when playing certain games, such as Destiny 2, after installing KB4482887.
  • Security updates to Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Scripting Engine, Windows Shell, Windows App Platform and Frameworks, Windows Kernel-Mode Drivers, Windows Server, Windows Linux, Windows Hyper-V, Windows Datacenter Networking, Windows Storage and Filesystems, Windows Wireless Networking, the Microsoft JET Database Engine, Windows Kernel, Windows, and Windows Fundamentals.

Note that there are a few issues to be aware of with this update. Make sure to read Microsoft’s full blog post to read about the potential issues and workarounds. Also remember that if you do have an issue with this or any other update, you can roll them back. For more on that, read our article: How to Uninstall a Windows 10 Cumulative Update.

All other supported versions of Windows 10 also received updates today, too. Just like other Windows 10 cumulative updates, you should receive these updates automatically in the background. Or, to stay on top of things, head to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update and check for updates.
