Microsoft releases Windows 10 for PCs build 14393.351 to everyone - here's what's new

A new cumulative update is available for non-Insiders that are already running the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, build 14393.351. Insiders on the Release Preview ring got the update early this morning, but it's not available in the Production ring (non-Insiders).

As with all PC updates that show up in the Production ring, there is a changelog (Insiders are rarely so lucky when it comes to cumulative updates). Here's what's new:

  • Improved reliability of Internet Explorer 11, Start, File Explorer, action center, graphics, and the Windows kernel.

  • Addressed issue that was causing System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) Management Console to crash in State view.

  • Addressed connectivity issue from a 32-bit application to a Remote Desktop Gateway that doesn’t have HTTP tunneling enabled.

  • Addressed issue of updates not being restored when doing a system reset, even if those updates were permanently installed.

  • Addressed issue that was causing domain logon attempts to fail on a Windows 10 Pro device after upgrading from Windows 10 Home.

  • Addressed issue that was causing failed logon counts of non-admin users without network logon permissions to be counted as cumulative, resulting in devices going into BitLocker recovery more frequently.

  • Improved support for websites by updating the HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) preload list.

  • Improved support for IT administrators using Group Policy to block users updating the operating system from Windows Update.

  • Improved reliability and stability of the notification framework for enabling contextual notifications in File Explorer.

  • Addressed an issue that prevented System Center Configuration Manager from performing inventory uploads via Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) when Encrypting File System (EFS) has been disabled.

  • Addressed additional issues with USB, Wi-Fi, clustering, setup, Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer 11, licensing, PowerShell, Component Object Model (COM), Windows kernel, graphics, and Bluetooth.

Interestingly, no build for Windows phones was offered today. Build 14393.351 for Mobile was released to Insiders in the Release Preview and Slow rings a week ago, so if it's available for PCs, one would think that it's coming for phones soon as well.

We should also see another Fast ring build released this week. After announcing the Creators Update yesterday, Microsoft said that we'd see a Preview soon.
