One week after the launch of Windows 10, Microsoft has started rolling out the first update for the PC operating system since its general release. Details are scarce, but Microsoft says it includes "non–security-related changes to enhance the functionality of Windows 10 through new features and improvements."
Microsoft's support patch for the patch labels it as "KB3081424". There were earlier reports that it would be called 'Service Release 1' (SR1), but apparently Microsoft either changed its mind or didn't plan on calling the patch by that name in the first place. The support page adds:
"Windows 10 updates are cumulative. Therefore, this package contains all previously-released fixes (see KB 3074683). If you have installed previous updates, only the new fixes that are contained in this package will be downloaded and installed to your computer."
The download size for this update is 325MB. Hopefully, Microsoft will offer a more detailed change log of what's contained in "KB3081424" in the near future. This will likely be just the first of many such post-release bug fixes for the OS in the coming weeks.
