Microsoft released a whole bunch of cumulative updates for the company's Windows 10 operating system yesterday. The updates KB4284822, KB4284830 and KB4284833 include non-security fixes and improvements for Windows 10 version 1709, 1703, and 1607.

The updates are available as direct downloads from Microsoft's Update Catalog, Windows Update, and Enterprise update tools.
