Microsoft is today rolling out Windows 10 KB4134661 and KB4134660 for Creators Update (version 1703) and Fall Creators Update (version 1709), respectively. The updates are only available for older versions of Windows 10 operating system, and both of them are supposed to improve the upgrade transition to the newly-released version 1803.

Microsoft in a support document explains that the updates released today will allow computers running Windows 10 Creators and Fall Creators Update to show a notification of an improved privacy experience on upgrading the systems to Windows 10 April 2018 Update.

At the moment, Microsoft is busy with the rollout of Windows 10 April 2018 Update, the latest version of Microsoft’s desktop operating system. Microsoft started rolling out the newest version of Windows 10 on April 30, however, the rollout takes place in stages so the update is not yet available for everyone.

You can install the patches released today to improve the Windows 10 version 1803 upgrade experience. In other words, these patches ensure a smoother upgrade from Creators Update and Fall Creators Update.

It is also worth noting that not all systems are getting the update right now, and there are no known issues or bugs hitting these two updates at the time of writing this story. Microsoft hasn’t provided any more information on the two updates for Windows 10 but we’ll update the article if and when new information is available.

Earlier today, Microsoft also shipped an update to Windows 10 version 1803 with Intel’s latest Microcode firmware. It is also worth noting that Windows 10 April 2018 Update (version 1803) still has many bugs on some hardware configuration, and it has received just a single cumulative update since the public release in April. The last cumulative update for Windows 10 version 1803 included a limited collection of fixes and improvements.
