Microsoft has released its weekly cumulative Windows Update for Windows 10.

KB3118754 Windows Update

KB3118754 replaces the previous patch which was released a week ago.

The new update is rolling out only to Windows 10 Build 10586 version 1511, which was also released in the past week. In case you aren’t aware of it, Build 10586 marks the first major update for Windows 10, aka Threshold 2, was released to all users running the general availability build 10240 RTM.

You can view our photo gallery of the new changes in the latest build, to see if it is worth updating to. In case, you haven’t received the update you can use this trick to download the ISO and update the operating system manually, without losing any of your files or apps.

Interestingly, the KB3118754 Windows Update patches build 10586.3 to 10586.11 (refer to the screenshot below).

This minor bump in the version number matches the new Windows 10 Mobile Build, which the Redmond company released yesterday.
You can check the version of Windows 10 you have on your PC, by using the key combo Windows Key + R, and then typing winver and hitting enter.

Here is a a screenshot showing the Windows version before the update:

While Microsoft did not detail upon the list of changes the update brings, as usual, some sharp eyed users on Reddit, have spotted several changes.

The KB3118754 Windows Update, brings some bug fixes to Microsoft Edge, including some improvements to the Favorites, Reading List, possibly related to the new sync feature which debuted in the recently released build of the operating system.

Another user reports that the update, fixes the invisible window buttons in the Dark Theme of Microsoft Edge. The buttons (minimize, maximize) reportedly turn black, thus blending into the theme and becoming invisible. This bug appears to have been fixed, but only when the user has enabled a certain color for the Windows taskbar, titlebar. etc.  another feature which debuted in Build 10586. I haven’t run into this issue, but several users have confirmed that this bug exists, so it is possible that it happens only on some PCs.

The KB3118754 Windows Update, like all cumulative updates requires a reboot to finish installing. If you haven’t received the update yet, hit the Windows + X key combo to open the Settings app, and then click on the Update and Security tab > Windows Update > Check for updates, to manually run the update check. I had to do so for the update to be downloaded.
