  • Updates an issue that causes Windows Update to stop responding when you check for updates.
  • Updates an issue that fails to print content that is outside of the margins of a document.

Windows 10 version 1809 received a comparatively small set of highlights with KB4550969 (opens in new tab):

  • Updates an issue with pasting mixed content of images and text from Microsoft Word into Internet Explorer.
  • Updates an issue that causes a text box that contains multiple lines of text to stop responding in certain scenarios.
  • Updates an issue that fails to print content that is outside of the margins of a document.

All of these updates are currently rolling out across the various versions of Windows 10 covered via Windows Update. For more, you can view Microsoft's latest release notes (opens in new tab) for Windows 10 updates.
