The Fall Creators Update gets another patch with improvements and fixes

Two weeks before the regular cumulative update for Windows 10, Microsoft released another update for PCs running the Fall Creators Update (version 1709). The update brings build 16299.214 with a number of fixes and improvements. According to the changelog for 16299.214, the update includes: 

  • Addresses a compatibility issue where colors are distorted when the system is connected to displays that support wide color gamut.
  • Addresses a condition where a second monitor that is connected to legacy AMD display adapters flashes after waking from sleep.
  • Addresses issue that causes delays when switching keyboard languages using Alt+Shift.
  • Addresses compatibility issues when rendering certain closed captions or subtitle formats during video playback.
  • Addresses issue where the Microsoft Edge Allow Extension Group Policy for the disabled state was not working.
  • Provides additional protections for 32-bit (x86) versions of Windows 10, version 1709.
  • Resolves the issue reported by some customers on a small subset of older AMD processors where the processor entered an unbootable state after installing January 3, 2018—KB4056892 (OS Build 16299.192).

You can manually download and install the update from here, but it should also appear in Settings → Windows Update. The planned Patch Tuesday update for this month will be released on February 13.
