Windows 10 Build 16299.251 via KB4090913

Here is what has been fixed with this latest patch according to the Microsoft release notes:

  • Addresses an issue in which some USB devices and onboard devices, such as a built-in laptop camera, keyboard, or mouse, stop working. This may occur when the Windows Update servicing stack incorrectly skips installing the newer version of some critical drivers in the cumulative update and uninstalls the currently active drivers during maintenance.

Do note that, as with all updates, there are known issues with this latest patch. One of the issues is you might not be able to download the update if your antivirus software isn’t up-to-date and contain a specific Registry key. Make sure to read the full release notes for all known problems and workarounds.

The patch should automatically show up in Windows Update which you can get by heading to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update > Check for Updates. Or you can manually download it from the Microsoft Update Catalog.

After you install the update, hit the Windows key and type: winver and you will see that your build number has been bumped up to 16899.251.
