Windows 10 build 18343, according to the company, doesn’t introduce new features or significant changes. Instead, only addresses the Connected Standby issue that prevented computers using Intel64 Family 6 Model 142 and Intel64 Family 6 Model 158 processor model from installing build 18342.

In addition, build 18343 fixes a problem that required an extra reboot when performing Reset this PC, and selecting Keep my files on a device that has Reserved Storage enabled.
