    Windows 10 1809 KB4490481: the missing patch arrives, finally


    Microsoft released the long awaited second cumulative update of the month KB4490481 for Windows 10 version 1809 yesterday evening.

    Why did it take so long to release when cumulative updates for all other supported versions of Windows 10 arrived on March 20, 2019? Because Microsoft learned from the mistakes it made when it released Windows 10 version 1809 and subsequent updates.

    It appears, that Microsoft pushes updates for the current version of Windows 10 to an extra round of testing, courtesy of the release channel, before it releases it to the general population.

    Note: The update fixes a huge number of issues and still suffers from the same five known issues that previous versions of Windows 10 version 1809 suffered from.

    Here is the list of changes:

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
