It’s the second Tuesday of the month, and that means a new round of updates and security fixes for Microsoft operating systems and software. November 2020 Patch Tuesday updates are in the house!
As usual, all supported versions of Windows are being serviced.
All versions of Windows 10, other than version 1511, Windows Server, Windows 8.1, and Windows 7 users that have opted to receive the Extended Security Updates (ESUs) are in line to receive these new patches, which are primarily meant to fix issues in these platforms.
These are split into two sets — a monthly rollup and a security only update.
And while the monthly rollup can be installed via Windows Update, the security only update must be installed manually. Simply pay a visit to the Update Catalog that Microsoft maintains to get in on the act of downloading and deploying.
Following are the new cumulative updates that are available for Windows 10:
- Windows 10 version 1507 — KB4586787 (OS Build 10240.18756)
- Windows 10 version 1607 — KB4586830 (OS Build 14393.4046)
- Windows 10 version 1703 — KB4586782 (OS Build 15063.2554)
- Windows 10 version 1709 — EOS
- Windows 10 version 1803 — KB4586785 (OS Build 17134.1845)
- Windows 10 version 1809 — KB4586793 (OS Build 17763.1577)
- Windows 10 version 1903/1909 — KB4586786 (OS Builds 18362.1198 and 18363.1198)
- Windows 10 version 2004 and 20H2 — KB4586781 (OS Builds 19041.630 and 19042.630)
The changelog of these cumulative updates is rather light this time around, with the November 2020 Patch Tuesday updates only including a few security improvements.
A point worth mentioning is that Windows 10 version 1809 reaches end of support today for Home and Pro users. This makes this one the last cumulative update for this version of the OS, with Microsoft now shifting attention to the newer releases.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, there are no reports of failed installs or errors with these updates.
