These are the fixes and improvements coming to the next update of Windows 10:

  • Addresses an issue that affects the Windows Notification Platform. It fails to send notifications from applications to you.
    Addresses an issue that affects hybrid joined devices. You cannot sign in to them if they are not connected to the internet. This occurs when you use a Windows Hello for Business PIN or biometric credentials.
  • This issue applies to a cloud trust deployment.
  • Affects Windows Autopilot profiles. The process to download the Windows Autopilot policy is more resilient. This helps when a network connection might not be fully initialized. This update increases the retry attempts when you try to download the Windows Autopilot profile.
  • Addresses an issue that might affect Win32 and Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps. They might close when devices enter Modern Standby. Modern Standby is an expansion of the Connected Standby power model.
  • This issue occurs if certain Bluetooth Phone Link features are turned on.
  • Addresses an issue that affects Event Forwarding Subscriptions. When you add an Event Channel to the subscription, it forwards events you do not need.
  • Addresses an issue that affects the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) repository. This causes an installation error. The issue occurs when a device does not shut down properly.
  • Affects user mode printer drivers. They unload unexpectedly. This occurs when you print from multiple print queues to the same printer driver.
  • Enhances hinting for some of the letters of the Verdana Pro font family.
  • Addresses an issue that might affect your computer when you are playing a game. Timeout Detection and Recovery (TDR) errors might occur.
  • Affects text edit controls in XAML. You cannot edit the controls again after they become read only. This occurs when you use the new Microsoft Input Method Editor for Japanese, Chinese, and Korean.
  • Addresses an issue that affects a printing job. An unexpected Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) mode switch can cause the print job to abruptly stop. This occurs when there is an independent hardware vendor (IHV) driver.
  • This update makes Country and Operator Settings Asset (COSA) profiles up to date.
  • Addresses an issue that affects certain display and audio devices. They are missing after your system resumes from sleep.
  • Addresses a deadlock in Internet Protocol Security (IPsec). When you configure servers with IPsec rules, they stop responding. This issue affects virtual and physical servers.
  • Addresses an issue that might affect some VPN clients. They might not establish a connection.
  • Affects the Windows Kernel Vulnerable Driver Blocklist, DriverSiPolicy.p7b. It adds drivers that are at risk for Bring Your Own Vulnerable Driver (BYOVD) attacks.
  • Addresses an issue that causes Windows to fail. This occurs when you use BitLocker on a storage medium that has a large sector size.
  • Addresses an issue that affects the Search app. It opens in full screen, blocks additional Start menu actions, and you cannot close it.
