KB4467702 Windows 10 17134.407 Full Changelog
As expected, today’s patch for Windows 10 is mostly focused on resolving security vulnerabilities but there are some non-security fixes which are worth highlighting.
According to the official changelog, the patch provides protections against Speculative Store Bypass (CVE-2018-3639) vulnerability for AMD-based computers.
This month’s patch also fixes the issues with Microsoft Edge where the browser may prevent developer tools (F12) from starting on some systems.
Installing this update will also install the security patches for Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Windows Media, Windows Graphics, Windows Scripting, Windows App Platform and Frameworks, Windows Wireless Networking, Windows Server and Windows Kernel.
Microsoft says the company is aware of two issues in the latest patch for Windows 10 April 2018 Update but these problems will be fixed soon.
In the changelog, Microsoft acknowledges that the file association is still broken and you cannot set Win32 program defaults for certain app and file type combinations.
The company explains that the file association may not work properly even with apps such as Microsoft Notepad but the team is working on a fix that will be shipped later this month.
You can keep trying to set app defaults as after few attempts, it should work and system will allow the new default app for specific files.
The patch appears to install correctly and we haven’t experienced any issues with today’s cumulative update.
If you’re looking for new exciting features, you can get the Windows 10 October 2018 Update but it may not show up on all devices now.
