Microsoft on Thursday rolled out a new cumulative update for Windows 10 version 1703 (Creators Update) to the public. KB4020102 is the second cumulative update for version 1703 and there aren’t any new features in this update. There are, however, plenty of bug fixes and security enhancements.
Running Windows 10 Creators Update Yet?
This update affects the low number of users who are running Windows 10 version 1703. According to a May report from AdDuplex, the Creators Update is running on only 18 percent of Windows 10 PCs. On the other hand, version 1607 (Anniversary Update) is running on 75 percent of Windows 10 computers. This is about six weeks into the release and Microsoft says the rollout is on track as the company is rolling the update out in stages.
