Microsoft couple of days ago released Windows 10 Cumulative updates for all the versions of the operating system. The company released many fixes and improvements for Windows 10 users who have installed Fall Creators Update on their devices.

The update was rolled out as part of the Patch Tuesday and contained lots of fixes and improvements for Windows 10 PC and Tablet users with version 1709. However Microsoft against its regular trend of releasing Patch Tuesday updates to PC and Mobile, had not released any new cumulative update for Windows 10 Mobile.

Today the company decided to roll out a new Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Mobile users who have Fall Creators Update installed on their devices. The previous Mobile update had brought a minor issue with users complaining that they have not been able to open PDF files in Microsoft Edge.

This was a minor issue which Microsoft took almost a month to fix for Windows 10 Mobile users since the development of Windows 10 Mobile is no longer a priority for the company. The new cumulative update with version 15254.313 is being rolled out to all Mobile users with version 1709 installed on their devices.

The update contains a fix for the PDF rendering issue which was reported a month ago. Along with fixing the PDF lingering issue the company is also rolling out all the improvements from Build KB4088782 which is the same build which was released couple of days ago for users with version 1703 installed on their PCs.

Apart from fixing the PDF issue, Microsoft has made sure to inform the users with couple of known issues after installing the latest Cumulative update on Windows 10 Mobile. The users will be getting an error “Couldn’t take screenshot” which will appear after taking a screenshot, however the photo gets saved in the gallery.

Another known issue is some of the photo related apps throw error when you try to save photos especially with Lumia Creative Studio which doesn’t show recently taken photos in the gallery.

Microsoft is aware of the known issues mentioned above and is working on fixing the same which should be rolled out to users in coming weeks as part of the Patch Tuesday update. As reported above the Cumulative Update is currently rolling out for user’s on Fall Creators Update and you need to go to Settings>Phone Update>Check for Updates.

Do let us know if the PDF rendering issue has been resolved after installing the update in the comments below.

      May want to clean in install no ( Restore from backup)

      • Nelman1

        Thanks! Will try.

  • baalu

    I installed it. And i don’t got any issues with screenshots. The screenshots working fine.

  • Mujtaba Ali

    It seems like the time to move on to android for sure.

    • baalu

      Why? Facing issues with install?

      • Mujtaba Ali

        I have Lumia 550 and it is very slow and unstable. It hangs randomly without any reason. Tried numerous restarts and resets, nothing resolved. Their updates are even not making anything better.

        • JohnW

          Get a 950. Mine has been completely reliable and they are relatively cheap now.

          • Mujtaba Ali

            This is not a solution, this is an alternative. And while we are talking about alternatives, it seems better to get android phones since Lumia series is already dead and there is no point in buying a phone whose OS is already dumped by the company itself.

            If that’s what you want, just go do it. As for whether there is any point, WP is the only platform on which I can get voice recognition to work properly with a motorcycle helmet Bluetooth system. Siri is useless with background noise. OK Google is voice activated which hammers the battery and doesn’t work well with road noise. Cortana is triggered by a double tap and works every time even on a freeway at 100km/h.

            oh like how much now

          • baalu

            I use Lumia 950 as well. Working like a gem Except for the Apps department, which as Windows phone users, we all know the case.

          • JohnW

            Although Cortana broke a few days ago and can’t launch apps now.

          • baalu

            I tried launching few apps. The inbuilt apps were opening fine with Cortana.

          • JohnW

            Thanks. There is hope then.

          • JohnW

            Which build are you using? I think mine stopped working after the last update.

          • baalu

            10.0.15254.313
            Location : India

    They dont give a dam so why even bother!

  • Gergő Kovács

    I feel so bad about Windows 10 Mobile. If Microsoft didn’t screw with this app-gap and UWP shit, then it’d be much popular. It has SO much lost potential.

  • After this update, Edge is completely broken. Can’t open any page. Automatically browser freezes after 7-10 seconds and then crashes.

    • baalu

      Which handset?
      I got no issues at all. Everything perfect, except that occasional lock screen freeze for a few seconds.
      Bare that everything perfect.
      I use Lumia 950.

    I switched to a OnePlus 5t. The new phone supports dual sims which allowed me to consolidate my work Samsung S7 Active phone and my personal Alcatel Idol S4 into one platform. I’m done with Microsoft’s phones and devices. Nadella is destroying Microsoft.
