Microsoft release new Cumulative Update for Windows 10 FCU with USB fix

Microsoft has released a new Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Build 1709 ie. the Fall Creators Update.

The update brings the OS to build  16299.251. with the following changelog:

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.

It is notable that the update is just being released 8 days before Patch Tuesday, and we wonder if it contains anything else security related or is required to ensure the Patch Tuesday update installs smoothly.

The update can be manually downloaded here, or via checking for updates in Settings. Read the known issues with the patch here.
