Microsoft rolls out servicing stack updates for Windows 10
You might still remember them, Patch Tuesdays, on the second Tuesday of every month. There Microsoft rolls out major, performance improving or security improving updates for all of their products and services. While this got a bit out of focus during the last few months because of the Windows Insider program, there are now two things in the latest Patch Tuesday which should be reported about.
If you are a Windows Insider and you are using the latest build of Windows 10, you can now stop reading. You are a consumer with the latest version of Windows 10 Microsoft is offering, fine. On yesterdays Patch Tuesday, July 12th, Microsoft rolled out two updates for Windows 10: KB3173428, KB3173427; Both should be available through Windows Update for you.
Both updates are so-called servicing stack updates. Those are rolled out to make Windows 10 performing better, more reliable and more stable. Both are replacing older servicing stack updates which have been rolled out for Windows 10 previously. This is also all what the summary on both update says, so there is not much else to say about those.
