KB4469342 for Windows 10 version 1809 released
Microsoft with version 1809 is adopting a very different technique for cumulative updates. In the version, Microsoft releases the update for Insiders in the slow ring or release preview, revises the update at least a couple of times and then ships it to the general public. KB4469342 is no different, which was published 4 times and then eventually released to the general public. Let us see what is new in the update.
