Today, Microsoft issued its fourth cumulative update for Windows 10 version 1607. As has been the case recently, there’s no information about what’s been fixed in this update yet.

UPDATE: We have the info. See below.

This update increments the build number to 14393.51 from 14393.10.

Microsoft will eventually clue us in on this support page. For now, all I can do is recount the history of cumulative updates for Windows 10 version 1607. Which is pretty lengthy given that this release has only been available for a week so far.

update

KB3176495 is the fourth cumulative update for Windows 10 version 1607, but it is the first to arrive since the Anniversary Update began shipping publicly to customers: The previous three shipped ahead of that, with the third update, KB3176929, arriving earlier on the same day as the Anniversary Update.

Microsoft also delivered cumulative updates for Windows 10 version 1607 on July 23, 2016 and July 26, 2016.

I’ll update this post when Microsoft decides to document it.

UPDATE:

Here’s what’s new.

  • Improved reliability for Internet Explorer 11.
  • Addressed issue to keep pen click settings after updating to Windows 10 version 1607.
  • Addressed issue that may cause Windows 10 Mobile devices to hang after turning Bluetooth on and off very quickly.
  • Security updates to Kernel Mode Drivers, Microsoft Graphics Component, Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer 11, and Windows Authentication Methods.
