Microsoft release Cumulative Updates for most versions of Windows 10

It’s Patch Tuesday and Microsoft has released Cumulative Updates for the supported versions of Windows 10, including 1803, 1709, and 1703.

Thankfully on this occasion, the CU does not include any emergency security patches but does include a wide range of fixes. See the changelogs below:

For the Windows 10 April 2018 Update (1803) 17134.556 (KB4480976) brings:

  • Addresses an issue in Microsoft Edge that fails to trigger the focusin event if the focus event listener of an element shifts focus to another element.
  • Addresses an issue that prevents sharing and timeline features and roaming settings from working for accounts that use Chinese, Japanese, and Korean languages.
  • Addresses an issue that may prevent some applications from displaying the Help (F1) window correctly.
  • Addresses an issue that causes power options to appear on the Windows security screen when the per user group policy to hide power options is set.
  • Addresses an issue that prevents links for certain compressed file formats from resolving.
  • Addresses an issue that causes BitLocker Network Unlock to fail on generation 2 virtual machines when it’s used in a network that only supports IPv4.
  • Addresses a privacy issue with apps that obtain the BroadFileSystemAccess capability without a user’s consent.
  • Addresses an issue in which WAM logging causes some applications such as Microsoft Office to stop working.
  • Addresses an issue that causes catalog signed scripts, including those shipped as part of Windows, to incorrectly generate a Windows Defender Application Control (WDAC) failure audit event.
  • Addresses an issue in which Windows Driver Frameworks causes high CPU utilization. As a result, the user-mode driver stops working when the device resumes from Hibernate (S4).
  • Addresses an issue that may cause a 30-second delay when deleting or renaming a link in a Distributed File System (DFS) Namespace. Additionally, renaming a folder may take 30 seconds when multiple users work in a group share simultaneously, and File Explorer stops responding.

  • Addresses an issue that may cause third-party applications to have difficulty authenticating hotspots.
  • Addresses an issue that may cause a blue screen to appear when a Thunderbolt storage device is attached.

The update includes four known issues, including the inability to pin web links to the Start Menu or the taskbar. This bug will be fixed in an “upcoming release,” and Microsoft isn’t providing an ETA for now.
