Known issues:

After installing the March 13, 2018 or later Cumulative Update for Windows 10 version 1607, only the latest Windows 10 feature update is returned as applicable. This prevents the deployment of previously released feature updates using ConfigMgr (current branch) and Windows 10 servicing plans.

Microsoft's workaround:

Decline all feature updates on the WSUS Server(s) except for the one that you want to deploy using ConfigMgr. Run another software update scan cycle from the ConfigMgr control panel (or wait until the client devices perform their next scan).

    Given that I followed the instructions here, I wonder whether Microsoft will release a cumulative update which moves me to RTM.

    I wonder if Microsoft will release KB4093117 but for 1709 also. We are having the issue below, but only have the fix for 1703 right now.

    ◾Fixed an issue that prevented users from unlocking their sessions which happened when multiple users logged in to a system from different domains, used the UPN format for domain credentials, and used Fast User switching.

    Wow, only 20 fixes in these updates, how many of them are really fixes for glitched spyware? “Reliability issues,” “potential leaks,” give me a break!

    4074592 from 1 Apr took forever to install and really hosed my laptop, worse than any update ever has. It reset my GP preferences using that evil rempl shell task which I took write permissions away from, gave ownership to me, allowed it to run only once a week, deleted inheritances and blocked from going online.

    Couldn’t connect to wifi unless ethernet was first connected for a short time wouldn’t reconnect when airplane mode was deactivated. Turned on all the telemetry settings I turned off but they indicated off in the settings panels. Restored Windows Update to automatic check and install every freaking 6 hours! The laptop became really slow with all the huge spy processes running constantly.

    This is Win10 Pro; it shouldn’t be possible for updates to mod GP’s, how many businesses got shut down because of microsoft’s disregard for their customers’ privacy and security? Using System’s and Trusted Installer’s God privileges to change every setting they want is hacking. Leaving firewall settings in place to hide MS’s hacking is a huge security issue. I haven’t seen such malicious modifications in any other update.

    Windows itself, the small part of it that is the OS works fine but all the useless and unwanted kiddie garbage that comes with Windows is only for grabbing data, the apps are awful, including edge.

    MS sees user devices as something to hijack, they don’t even make up BS anymore about how telemetry info is general, they blatantly say all you do is theirs and they’ll take it without you knowing what was taken. How is this right? “Windows as a service” is nonsense, a paid service should be required by law to tell you all the data they take; their current legal position is moot, no guilt here fighting them like they fight me.

    Software has turned into racketeering.

    Why are these updates so bloated? Aren’t they able to make a lean and efficient OS instead of this patchy bloated mess named Windows?
