    It’ was patch Tuesday, so time for Microsoft to release new cumulative updates for computers that have already been upgraded to Windows 10.

    The new cumulative updates are KB3189866, KB3185614, and KB3185611 and are aimed at the original Windows 10 version released in July 2015, the November Update, and the Anniversary Update that shipped on August 2 this year.

    Just like all the other cumulative updates, these new ones do not bring any new feature, as they are specifically supposed to fix bugs and issues. These cumulative updates include performance updates and bring improvements to apps such as Microsoft Edge, Cortana, and others.
