Microsoft updates Windows 10 for non-Insider PCs, bringing it up to build 10586.164

Alongside its release today of Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview build 10586.164 - to the Slow and Release Preview rings, as well as the Production ring - Microsoft is also rolling out a new cumulative update with the same build number for non-Insider PCs.
