Microsoft has released another cumulative update for Windows 10

Well, if there was any doubt that Microsoft would be pushing out updates quickly, you can put it to bed as the company has released yet another update. Cumulative update 3, which is now live via Windows Update, is rolling out to users around the world.

This is the third update in less than two weeks for the OS and while the support page is not live, the last update was primarily patching security vulnerabilities.

The supporting documentation for the update can be found here, KB3081438, but it provides no further information about what the update contains; "This update includes improvements to enhance the functionality of Windows 10".

Seeing that Microsoft is moving to a service model for the OS, this type of update should be somewhat frequent as they will more proactively update the core OS, instead of releasing major service upgrades every few years. Considering that three updates have come in less than two weeks, we will be curious to see if the company continues to patch the OS with non-security related updates regularly or if this is only happening because the OS is brand new.

You can download the update now - and while we did not have any issues installing the bits, let us know if you encounter any problems with the installation.
