We have a new cumulative update for Windows 10. It is possible that these days it has been installed without realizing it. This is KB3140743 update for Windows 10 that fixes the bug with default apps.
Among other improvements and the occasional novelty, there is one that is quite important and that has to do with the default applications. Specifically fixes the restart of apps that caused the KB3135173 update.
Fixes issue with KB3135173 update
KB3140743 finally corrects this problem and therefore restores these applications to what was default in case any registry key is broken.
Perhaps one of the most important fixes in this update, but it also includes a series of other general improvements that, among others, we detail below:
- General improvements in various aspects of Windows 10 such as Windows Update, start menu, authentication, Windows Hello, AppLocker, Internet Explorer 11 and Microsoft Edge, connectivity and storage issues, etc.
- Improved support for wearables, displays, and printers.
- Fixed issues affecting purchasing, running, or updating apps from the store.
- Improved the quality of Cortana voices in multiple languages available.
The KB3140743 update weighs 311 MB for 32-bit versions of Windows 10 and 548 MB for a 64-bit operating system. It should already be installed or it should show up in Windows Update.
As we always recommend in these cases, it is recommended to install all cumulative applications to improve and correct aspects of Windows 10.
