KB4284848 Update for Windows 10 fixes several issues
The KB4284848 Update for Windows 10 has been released on Patch Tuesday this week. The update doesn’t bring any new features, because it is a quality update.
That means it contains bug fixes, and the actual number of patches which it brings address about 16 issues in the operating system. And as always with a Windows Cumulative Update, the version number has been bumped to Build 17134.137 with the new update. The previous version was 17134.112 (patched by KB4284835) around 2 weeks ago.
Here’s what’s new in the KB4284848 Update for Windows 10:
Streaming issues related to some live TV services and the HDR Video Settings Calibration settings have been fixed. The Media Center should now play the content which it generated. App-V should no longer cause lags on your computer.
If you use remote applications, you may have run into problems in drop-down menus or pop-up windows and non-responsive right-click. All these have been fixed in the latest Windows Update. There are 2 major issues mentioned in the change log, related to Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge. Apparently, Chrome version 67 stopped working on some computers. Edge on the other hand, stopped working when a malformed URL tried to download a font. Surface Book 2 users and other laptops with hybrid GPUs had issues with Windows Mixed Reality, and these have also been fixed now.
Some issues with the Appmonitor not working at logoff have been fixed too. The update also fixes an error which impacted tasks by the Task Scheduler set with an S5U logon to fail. The error prompt for this was ERROR_NO_SUCH_LOGON_SESSION/STATUS_NO_TRUST_SAM_ACCOUNT.
The latest Cumulative Windows Update available for Windows 10 April 2018 Update users. You can check for the update manually to get it right away, from the Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update screen.
You can also get the update manually from the Microsoft Update Catalog website. The manual update from the Catalog page weighs at about 634MB for PCs running on 64-bit Windows, while the 32-bit version is almost half the size at around 357MB. The update is also available for Windows Server 2016, and for Windows 10 for ARM64 computers. Make sure to choose the correct one before downloading it.
Do keep in mind, that you will need to restart the computer to finish installing the update. We installed the KB4284848 Update on our computer last night, and everything seems to be working fine. But maybe you should create a system restore point to be safe.
