Microsoft fixes several issues with W10 Oct update

KB4469342 update

Microsoft has released an extensive update that will fix many current issues with Windows 10. The company has released a cumulative update KB4469342 and according to Microsoft this update has been under thorough testing by Windows Insiders since the November 27.

During the first days of October, Microsoft started to roll out its Windows 10 October 2018 Update. A few days later, the company had to withdraw the update due to several reports about deleting files. Even after a second roll-out of the update, users have found other bugs and Microsoft again decided to block the update on some specific systems.

The update KB4469342 is going to be released soon and hopefully this time there won’t be any nasty surprises alongside of it.
It appears that Microsoft’s telemetry data has now indicated that update KB4469342 is stable enough to release. The update fixes about 20 bugs that were introduced with the October Update.

One of the fixes is for an issue that occurred when Edge users tried to upload files to file hosting services by dragging and dropping the files from the desktop in the browser. Sometimes the files did not upload, while the browser did not show an error message. Also an issue with Internet Explorer was solved, sometimes performance of the browser degraded when using roaming profiles or when the Microsoft Compatibility List wasn’t used. Another issue that was fixed caused mapped drives to fail to reconnect after starting and logging onto a Windows device.

Update KB4469342 also fixes an issue with brightness. In the October 2018 Update, the brightness did automatically reset to 50% after each system restart. Microsoft also fixed another issue related to displays. Sometimes the display settings stopped working when a user changed a multi-monitor configuration. Many more bugs were fixed, the entire list can be found in KB article 4469342.
