Microsoft today released a new cumulative update for users running Windows 10 1809 October 2018 Update. Here is a look at the fixes to expect.

Microsoft today released a new cumulative update for Windows 10 1809 aka “October 2018 Update” which has no new features but does include quality improvements. After several problems getting out of the gate, Microsoft finally rereleased Windows 10 1809 last month and today it is rolling out update KB4469342 ahead of December’s normal Patch Tuesday. Here is a look at what you can expect with this latest update.

KB4469342 for Windows 10 1809 October 2018 Update

Here is the list of fixes that are included in today’s release which will also bump your build number to 17763.168:

  • Addresses an issue in Microsoft Edge with using the drag-and-drop feature to upload folders from the Windows desktop to a file hosting service website, such as Microsoft OneDrive. In some scenarios, files contained in the folders fail to upload, with possibly no error reported on the web page to the user.
  • Addresses an issue that degrades Internet Explorer performance when you use roaming profiles or you don’t use the Microsoft Compatibility List.
  • Addresses updated time zone information for Fiji.
  • Addresses time zone changes for Moroccan daylight standard time.
  • Addresses time zone changes for Russian daylight standard time.
  • Addresses an issue that causes display settings to stop working when changing a multi-monitor configuration.
  • Addresses an issue that displays a black screen on some servers when waking a display from sleep.
  • Addresses an issue with long delays in taking a photo when using the Camera app in certain lighting conditions.
  • Addresses an issue that prevents live TV Hulu content from playing in Microsoft Edge; instead, a black screen appears.
  • Addresses an issue that stops Bluetooth® headsets from receiving audio input after several minutes of listening.
  • Addresses an issue that causes the Brightness slider preference to be reset to 50% when the device restarts.
  • Addresses an issue with the OEM manufacturing processes when running sysprep /generalize.
  • Addresses an issue with Microsoft Intune that causes devices to be incorrectly marked as not compliant because a firewall incorrectly returns a ‘Poor’ status. As a result, the affected devices will not receive conditional access compliance approval and may be blocked from access to corporate resources such as email.
  • Addresses a performance issue with vSwitch on network interface cards (NIC) that do not support Large Send Offload (LSO) and Checksum Offload (CSO).
  • Updates the Wi-Fi policy for service set identifier (SSID) filtering to avoid filtering out Wi-Fi Direct devices.
  • Addresses an issue that causes rasman.exe to stop responding.
  • Addresses an issue in which regedit.exe fails to add double null terminator to REG_MULTI_SZ values in the Windows registry. The missing terminator may prevent services and applications from reading REG_MULTI_SZ values that regedit.exe adds after installing the operating system.
  • Addresses an issue with RemoteApp visibility that may cause the main window to disappear until the user clicks the screen.
  • Addresses an issue that prevents some users from setting Win32 program defaults for certain app and file type combinations using the Open with… command or Settings > Apps > Default apps.
  • Addresses an issue that may cause mapped drives to fail to reconnect after starting and logging onto a Windows device.

Of course, you should receive this update automatically in the next couple of days, or you can stay on top of things by going to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update to check. Or, you can also download KB4469342 and install it manually. Make sure to read the full release notes for all changes, known issues, and workarounds.

    Generally, my first question is:
    Dare I let MS at my system again?

    And especially at this time –

    Should I delay the fixes being installed for about another week?
    That being as my system – having taken several days last week to integrate the recent set of fixes for 1803 before –
    On Sunday upgrading to 1809, with that STILL being integrated into the apps and working environment on the development system.
    This being Thursday!

    Well, I tried reporting the first – along with reports that files were not saved, when they were, and actually not saved due to lack of permission to add to the folder it had just added the prior 50 files, and then added some of the next 49 in a drag-n-drop of 100 files!
    Same thing also happening in IE11 – response from MS was – we are not actively working on Onedrive so don’t expect the Home version to be better soon.

    Using IE11 in a 64 bit win-10 Pro environment –
    Would I notice extra performance degredation – and that’s with no non-essential addons etc.
