Microsoft Releases Update for Windows 10 Build 10240

Windows 10 ProMicrosoft today released an update package for build 10240 that provides bug fixes and security updates. It will install automatically, or you can go to Windows Update and grab it.

Windows 10 Build 10240 Update

Gab Aul announced the news on Twitter late this afternoon. In a response to one Windows Insider, he said ” It will be described as a security update, but that’s just because it’s cumulative and includes the last package’s security fix.”

Like we said in our post when Windows 10 build 10240 was released, you can expect several more updates and patches up until, and after the July 29th official release date.

At the time of this writing, there is no blog post or Insider Hub details about what the update addresses exactly, but we’ll be sure to give more information as it comes out.

Update: 8pm CST

After manually checking for this update, I finally was able to download it this evening. Like Gabe Aul said on Twitter, it is described as a security update: KB3074665 and a restart is required.

    My laptop is not showing the windows 10 version in the lower right hand corner as it usually does. When I try to update I get a message that it’s up to date. However when I check the version by using WINVER, it returns Verizon 162, the older version.
    Has anyone had this problem, and do you have a fix?

      That’s part of the change in this version…there is no more watermark displaying in the lower left corner.
