Microsoft continues its stream of Windows 10 updates

Microsoft has just introduced yet another patch for Windows 10, and this time around, it happens to be a security update for the Flash player in Internet Explorer. In the update before this, the patch addressed a Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) issue which tend to rear its ugly head all too apparently for some users. The patch itself is called KB3018943, where it can be downloaded on your Windows 10 machine as you check out ‘Windows Update’ while looking for the download. Of course, there should not be much waiting at all in the downloading of the patch since it weighs in at a mere 8.5MB.

If you have Windows 10 Technical Preview and didn’t specifically set it to the “fast ring” — symbolizing your desire to live on the bleeding edge of new releases — the latest build of Windows 10 should install over the top of the old build as soon as you fire up the machine. If you left it on overnight, build 9879 (identified by a watermark in the lower-right corner of the desktop) should be ready for you this morning. This “new” build 9879 should differentiate itself from the “old” build 9879 by being more stable. I see no difference at all in any features. The hidden tricks and fixes I discussed two weeks ago still apply. I can even reconfirm the sticking Caps Lock/Num Lock problem. There was one patch applied to the old 9879, KB 3019269, which according to a tweet from Gabe Aul only fix a 0xAB blue screen for some build 9879 users. Aul had tweeted earlier that Microsoft would “make a couple of additional fixes” to build 9879, but it isn’t clear if any of those fixes made it into the new version. If you would like to perform a clean install of the consumer (not Enterprise) version of 9879, Microsoft has provided downloadable ISOs for English (United States and United Kingdom), Chinese (Simplified), and Portuguese (Brazil). The product key — which you will need for an ISO install — is NKJFK-GPHP7-G8C3J-P6JXR-HQRJR.
