Microsoft Rolls Out Windows 10 ‘Patch Tuesday’ Cumulative Updates

As such, the October Update will only show up via Windows Update if "data shows your device is ready and you will have a great experience". The company is now issuing a cumulative update to Fast ring insiders who have updated their PCs to the latest Windows 10 2019 version.

"For those advanced users seeking to install the update early by manually using "Check for updates" in settings, know that we are slowly throttling up this availability, while we carefully monitor data and feedback".

It's Patch Tuesday and in addition to re-releasing Windows 10 October 2018 Update, Microsoft today is also rolling out cumulative updates to all other supported versions of Windows 10 and Server.

It brings new features to Windows 10, chief among them a new integration with Android phones. The clipboard in Windows 10 version 1809 also now permits users to check the clipboard's history, including copied images.

Although the firm insisted it was keen to release the new update, it emphasised it was going to continue the delivery "in a more measured approach" overall.

In a broader sense, Microsoft says that it's reforming the way that it develops and tests Windows updates to make sure that this never happens again - users in the Windows Insider beta testing program had reported this bug well before it went out to users, but Microsoft missed it thanks to a flaw in its feedback process.

In either case, it's a good idea to get in the habit of backing up your data before installing Windows updates.

Windows 10 1809 is still being called the October update and is available now in ISO, via Windows Update, and other areas where you can typically find the bits. "If we detect that your device may have an issue, such as an application incompatibility, we will not install the update until that issue is resolved, even if you 'Check for updates, ' so you avoid encountering any related problems", Cable said.

Microsoft has wanted to build a light theme into the Windows Shell since Windows 10 first started development but is only now just getting around to it in 19H1, which is scheduled to ship in April 2019. You won't get bugged to install it, you won't be able to download it via Windows 10, no, nada.
