    Microsotf has released October “C” Week Cumulative Update Previews for Win10 versions 1809, 1903 and 1909

    KB4580386 for 1903/1909
    KB4580390 for 1809

    Highlights for versions 1903/1909 include:

    • Introducing Meet Now in the Windows 10 Taskbar

      Earlier this year we introduced Meet Now in Skype. Meet Now makes it easy to connect with anyone in as little as two clicks for free and each call can last up to 24 hours. Today, we’re excited to share that we will be extending this capability in Windows 10 by bringing Meet Now right to the taskbar. In the coming weeks, you will be able to easily set up a video call and reach friends and family in an instant by clicking the Meet Now icon in the taskbar notification area. No sign ups or downloads needed.

    • Updates an issue that might prevent a Microsoft Xbox Game Pass user from playing certain games that are eligible for play.
    • Updates a reliability issue that causes the screen to flash constantly.
    • Updates an issue that causes a USB printer port to disappear after restarting when the printer device is turned power off.

    There is a substantial list of fixes for all versions but no impending need to install any of them.
