Microsoft Releases Windows 10 Cumulative Updates KB4494441, KB4499167, KB4499179

Microsoft has released a new series of cumulative updates for Windows 10 as the company rolls out its typical Patch Tuesday fixes.

As usual, because they are shipped on a Patch Tuesday, these cumulative updates are first and foremost focused on resolving vulnerabilities in Windows 10, apps like Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer, as well as other OS components.

All Windows 10 versions are getting cumulative updates this month, but the star of the show is obviously the October 2018 Update, or version 1809, which right now is the most recent stable version of Windows 10.

A new feature update is projected to go live later this month as May 2019 Update, or version 1903. For the time being, however, this update is still in the Release Preview ring of the Windows Insider program for last-minute testing before the public rollout. The RTM build was compiled in late April.

The May 2019 cumulative updates for Windows 10 are the following:

Windows 10 version 1809: May 14, 2019—KB4494441 (OS Build 17763.503)
Windows 10 version 1803: May 14, 2019—KB4499167 (OS Build 17134.765)
Windows 10 version 1709: May 14, 2019—KB4499179 (OS Build 16299.1146)
Windows 10 version 1703: May 14, 2019—KB4499181 (OS Build 15063.1805)

At the time of writing this article, it’s obviously too early to discuss whether these cumulative updates install correctly or not. However, we’ll continue to monitor the main feedback channels, as we do every month, and we’ll post updates should any users run into trouble when installing them.

You can check out the full changelogs of this month’s cumulative updates in the box after the jump and head over to Windows Update if you want to take the risks of installing them right away.

As always, I recommend you to create a backup for your Windows installation, just to be able to restore your device should something go wrong.
