Cumulative updates KB4284822, KB4284830 and KB4284833 for Windows 10

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 company has not released an update for Windows 10 version 1803, the current version of Windows 10, yet but it is likely that one will be released that includes some of the fixes.

Windows 10 version 1607 is no longer supported on devices running Home or Pro editions of the operating system whereas versions 1703 and 1709 are still supported.

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

    I hope this month 1803 gets a patch to fix the MKV thumbnails not showing for certain files that they broke.

      There’s an option to disable thumbnails altogether. Best ever. Do it and after a while you won’t need ’em anymore. Let alone thumbnails need more space and other shenanigans.

        Windows 10 1709 still has so many bugs, installing 1803 is suicide.

    To avoid installing 1803 I set to defer feature update for 60 days.
    Apparently, in order to get this update I must first reset defer feature update back to 0.

      Little program called WPD available here:

      https://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/wpd-windows-10-privacy-dashboard.394992/

      has option to stop all windows updates. After you have used it for that purpose, go get any update you want manually from here:

      https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/home.aspx

      WPD has some good telemetry blocking capability also.

    How can i get the KB4284880 x86 for Windows Server 2016 Version 1607? I’ve downloaded “windows10.0-kb4284880-x64_477770f1e401d973765448dba0ec66d13159f36b.msu” and tried to install it, but it always says, that it’s not applicable. If I search it under WSUS it doesn’t even find it. If I search for updates under settings it says, I have the newest updates.

      Prerequisite: The servicing stack update (SSU) (KB4132216) must be installed before installing the latest cumulative update (LCU) (KB4284833). The LCU will not be reported as applicable until the SSU is installed.
