Microsoft releases Windows 10 for PCs build 10586.218

Microsoft has released the April cumulative update for Windows 10 for PCs, bringing the build number to 10586.218. The update comes alongside a build with the same number for Windows 10 Mobile.

As with most cumulative updates, there are no new features in KB3147458; however, there's quite a few fixes. Here's the change log:

  • Improved reliability for Internet Explorer 11, .NET Framework, wireless LAN, Microsoft Edge, Windows Update, logon, Bluetooth, network connectivity, map apps, video playback, Cortana, USB, Windows Explorer, and Narrator.

  • Fixed issue with connectivity of USB devices until OS restart.

  • Improved discoverability of printers when a device resumes from sleep.

  • Fixed issues with lock screen.

  • Support for visual voicemail on dual SIM phones.

  • Fixed issue with audio playback using Groove music and other music apps on a phone.

  • Fixed issue with revised daylight savings time.

  • Fixed additional issues with shutdown delays, Narrator, Cortana, roaming data usage, buying apps in the Store, video playback, facial recognition, Bluetooth pairing, Microsoft Edge, logon, Internet Explorer 11, Live Tile updates, .NET Framework, and Microsoft Installer (MSI).

  • Improved security for CSRSS to address security feature bypass.

  • Fixed additional security issues with Security Account Manager Remote Protocol, HTTP.sys, secondary logon, Microsoft Graphics component, .NET Framework, CSRSS, Microsoft Edge, and Internet Explorer 11.

You can grab 10586.218 through the the Production ring (non-Insider) or the Release Preview ring, by going to Settings -> Update & security -> Windows Update -> Check for Updates.

While fixes and stability improvements are always welcome, you might be craving hot new features. If that's what you're after, Windows 10 for PCs build 14316 was released to the Fast ring last week and that contains quite a bit of new stuff.
