Microsoft just rolled out the Windows 10 cumulative update KB3216755 for all users. The new update pushes Windows 10 up to version 14393.726 and primarily focuses on bug fixes and performance improvements.
That said, no features are added with the new update apart from several bug fixes and improvements. For instance, the update fixes a bug that Windows 10 users reported after installing patch KB3213986. It was a hard bug which existed in every version of Windows 10 anniversary update version 1607, where creating, renaming, or deleting a folder on a network share didn’t work. The issue was found in every version of version 1607, though now the latest cumulative update fixes the problem.
Also, it fixes a bug which didn’t allow converting 24-bit photos to 32-bit. Besides, several improvements have also been made with Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge browser, as the update patches a bug which caused failed file downloads. Minor tweaks have also been made to resolve general performance improvements. Moreover, the Windows 10 cumulative update KB3216755also brings a slew of security updates.
That said, the latest Windows 10 cumulative update also comes with a rather known issue. As Microsoft says, there’s quite a possibility that ClusterService might not automatically start once the system gets rebooted after installing the update. However, the company says this could work out by rebooting the node or run the service with the Start-ClusterNode PowerShell cmdlet.
