File Explorer is also getting fixes in this month’s cumulative

without user permission.

This duplication bug was first reported last year and it’s
finally getting fixed.

also getting improvements in this release. According to the
changelog, Microsoft has fixed an issue that breaks Start Menu
and Cortana buttons.

and Windows 10’s built-in online recognition. As per the
changelog, you can now choose to contribute your speech data
for human review. This includes voice data or voice interaction
with Cortana and other Microsoft products.

If you grant permission to your voice data, Microsoft employees
will be able to review your voice speech and then use it to
improve the accuracy.

As expected, the update has also fixed security issues with
Windows Virtualization, Windows Media, and external hardware.

At the moment, the company is not aware of any new known
issues, but
Microsoft has confirmed that it’s investigating reports of game
crashes after the recent optional update.
