Microsoft has added a non-security update for Windows 10 Version 1909. This is the preview for October Patch Day. It contains important bug fixes, including for daylight saving time changes and blurry displays.
The new update, marked as optional, starts for users of Windows 10 version 1909. Older versions no longer receive regular updates, all other (newer) Windows 10 versions have already received the preview. This update fixes a number of problems that occurred after the patch day and some have been known for a long time. The previews or optional updates correspond to the advance versions of Windows that were previously released as C updates. The bug fixes contained therein will – if nothing comes up – be automatically distributed to all users on Patch Day in October.
Anyone who would benefit from the bug fixes now and would like to do so can already obtain the update. It is offered as an optional update via the Windows update function. These are non-security updates. You have to search for it yourself via “Optional Updates” so that it is loaded and installed.
