It’s that time of the month once again, as Microsoft is gearing up for the release of a new set of Patch Tuesday updates to systems across the world, including new cumulative updates for Windows 10.

It’s that time of the month once again, as Microsoft is gearing up for the release of a new set of Patch Tuesday updates to systems across the world, including new cumulative updates for Windows 10.

Cumulative updates are particularly important for Windows 10 users because installing the latest version always brings a system fully up-to-date, as it includes not only the most recent changes, but also those shipped with the previous updates.

Christ Goettl, product manager at Ivanti, says the usual Microsoft OS updates are likely to go live this month, which should include a Flash update to cover the most recent vulnerabilities in Adobe’s software. Flash Player comes bundled into Microsoft’s Edge and Internet Explorer, so the latest updates are distributed to systems via Windows Update together with the rest of the patches.

Since they land on Patch Tuesday, the focus with this new batch of cumulative updates will be entirely on fixing security issues in Windows 10, though bug fixes and performance refinements are also expected.

Five cumulative updates coming this month
This month, Microsoft will release cumulative updates for five different Windows 10 versions, as it follows: Windows 10 (initial version shipped in July 2015), Windows 10 version 1511 (November Update), Windows 10 version 1607 (Anniversary Update), Windows 10 version 1703 (Creators Update), and Windows 10 version 1709 (Fall Creators Update).
