In a surprise move (to me at least), Microsoft has issued a Cumulative Update to holdouts who turned down the Anniversary Update or those who were unable to Update due to technical issues. This Update offers a whole package of fixes and improvements. Microsoft pushes out batch of cumulative updates for Windows 10 | Windows Central Issues? Bugs? Solutions? For all things Build 10586.589 of Windows 10. Discuss it here. [TIP]Basic tip If you\’re having any issues with your device, try a reset. Settings > Update & security > Recovery > Reset this PC > This provides you with two options: 1. keep my files and 2. remove everything[/TIP] [TIP]Keep my files Does just as its name describes. If you choose the setting you can reinstall Windows 10 without having to back up any of the pictures, videos, music and documents that you have stored on it. You absolutely should back up these things just in case, but you shouldn’t need to use that back up. Keep My Files requires a certain amount of free space on your device. As such, it may be unavailable to you if your device is stuffed with a lot of files. If you get an error message asking for more storage when you choose this option you’ll need to back up your files and choose the remove everything option. You could also delete any files that you aren’t using on your device and try the option again. This option will take longer than the other options.[/TIP] [TIP]Remove Everything Deletes every file, every setting from your device and gives you a blank copy of Windows 10 to work with. You’ll need to add any files you have backed up to your device again [/TIP] Here\’s a Changelog:
- Improved reliability of Internet Explorer 11, USB, and the .NET framework.
- Addressed issue with the link to "Change my environment variables" in the User Accounts Control Panel not working correctly.

This was a stable update for my PC , relatively no performance improvements. I have today upgraded my PC from build 10586.589 to the current product build of AU, the transition was smooth and bug free. I had a AU disc with me , created using media creation tool and it was a smooth installation, with the build number getting bumped to 14393.0 and later on installed the CU to bring the build no. to 14393.189. All seems to be fine now, as i faced a lot of lag in gaming and normal navigation through the system.
