“Multi-monitor display and display resolution are not working for some AMD legacy cards (for example, Radeon HD 2000, HD3000, and HD4000 series) that mistakenly receive driver 126.96.36.199. This update will install a driver to restore multi-monitor display and resolution control capabilities,” the company explained.
While this is not a cumulative update, it is recommended that the users should reboot the machine to complete the installation of the patch. It’s worth noting that the update is still rolling out and you can download it by navigating to Settings -> Security & Update -> Windows Update.
