Outside of its regular Patch Tuesday schedule, Microsoft has released update KB4032188 for PCs and mobile devices running the Windows 10 Creators Update. The first quality update rolling out in August doesn’t include new features, instead it delivers a long list of bug fixes and improvements.
Currently the August quality update is available for devices enrolled in the Release Preview ring of the Windows Insider Program, but eventually, it’ll roll out to everyone.
KB4032188 bumps the version number of Windows 10 to build 15063.502, and it addresses a lot of issues, including problems with the default file system, traditional desktop applications not working with Bluetooth, device drivers not loading, video playback using Microsoft Edge, hardware encryption, memory leak, and many more.
