Microsoft is rolling out a new cumulative update, and this time it’s coming to all PC users. Windows 10 Build 14393.479 rolled out to Insiders on November 29th and contains several minor improvements.
Unfortunately, mobile users aren’t so lucky. This update caused some issues, breaking tap-and-pay on some devices. It seems like a good reason for Microsoft to hold back the build, and hopefully it’ll be coming soon. Updates usually roll out on the second Tuesday of each month, so a release on the 13th is possible.
Windows 10 Build 14939.479 Changelog
This build contains some strange but important fixes, including issues with floppy disks, shared DVD drives, Explorer inconsistencies, and more. Here’s the full list:

- Addressed issue that causes the loss of optional component (OC) state information, including all Hyper-V virtual machines, after upgrade.
- Addressed issue that causes Windows Explorer to display information that’s inconsistent with what’s stored on the Floppy disk.
