According to Microsoft, the update includes 129 different bug fixes for a variety of performance and security issues.

It’s one of the primary vectors that hackers use to attack PCs, so fixing these security holes is paramount to your safety.

To install the patch, all you need to do is navigate to the Start Menu, click on the Settings gear icon, and click on Update and Security. If the patch hasn’t already been installed, you’ll see it available to download.
