Patch Tuesday

Microsoft has released another bunch of updates for its OS and software platforms, with the April 2021 Patch Tuesday updates release coming in hot with a range of fixes.

The second Tuesday of the month usually has the company releasing new patches for all supported versions of Windows, including Windows 10, Windows 8.1, and Windows 7 — as long as you are a business that is paying for extended security updates.

There are two types of updates for the two older mainline operating systems and their server counterparts, a monthly rollup that is installed automatically and a security only update that is a manual affair.

Windows 8.1 has KB5001382 to deal with, a monthly rollup, while KB5001393 is a security only download. For Windows 7, Redmond has KB5001392 up for grabs.

Of course, the real action is with Windows 10, where all supported versions of this OS are getting cumulative updates.

Following is the full list of cumulative updates shipping this month:


You can check out the details for all of these at their respective links.

And speaking of EOS, Windows 10 version 1909 is set to reach end of support status next month. So, customers still running it have less than a month to upgrade to a new version, unless they run the Enterprise, Education, and IoT Enterprise SKUs of the operating system.

All these patches, rollups, and cumulative updates are available on Windows Update right now.
