Only a week after its official launch, Microsoft Windows 10 gets its first major update. Although it does not come with any new features, this update is as large as 325 MB and packs a lot of bug fixes and performance tweaks.

According to Microsoft's official description, the cumulative update launched on August 5 "includes improvements to enhance the functionality of Windows 10." Its name is KB3081424 and it follows the cumulative security update released on July 29, labeled KB3081423 and that contained an impressive amount of fixes that were made available during the beta stage of Windows 10. Paul Thurrott also unveiled on his blog that Microsoft's internal name of this update is Windows 10 SR1 (Service Release 1).

KB 3081424 installs automatically and has no prerequisites. As it usually happens, a restart is needed after applying the update. Hopefully Microsoft's next "major update" for Windows 10 will also come with a few new features, but for now there is no official information about when will this happen.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
