Windows 10 July update

Microsoft has started rolling out the Patch Tuesday cumulative updates for supported versions of Windows 10. Direct download links for Windows 10 KB4524570 offline installers are also available.

The Patch Tuesday update comes with security-only fixes and you shouldn’t notice any other improvements after applying the patch. It’s also worth pointing out that the cumulative update will download automatically on PCs, but you will have the option to decide the installation time.

The key highlight of Windows 10 Build 18362.476 is a fix for an issue where Keyboard Lockdown Subsystem may not work properly with the filter key input. As always, you can grab the patch by checking for updates on the Settings app or visiting the Microsoft’s Update Catalog.

November 2019 Update is getting the same cumulative update

Windows 10 version 1909 is a service pack for May 2019 Update PCs, which means both versions will share the same monthly updates but the build revision number will differ.

In the changelog, Microsoft explains that Windows 10 version 1903 and 1909 share a common set of core components and identical files. As a result, improvements included in monthly updates for Windows 10 version 1909 will also apply to version 1903.

The November 2019 Update is currently being shipped as enablement package, which is a “master switch” to activate the version 1909 features on May 2019 Update.

Microsoft says it’s aware of one known issue in this release which affects PCs during the Out of Box Experience (OOBE) where you might not be able to create a local user with IME.
