After Microsoft had an issue crop up less than 24 hours from pushing out their scheduled February updates, which ultimately resulted in that month's Patch Tuesday being delayed, the company has now issued their first updates and patches for Windows 10 and other software in two months - since January 2017.

There are 23 security related updates included in this month's cumulative updates for Windows 10 plus each current version of the operating system has its own collection of fixes in those same updates that are arriving on systems today.

Since it has been 60 days since the last cumulative updates were released for all the versions of Windows 10 this list is quite long as you might expect.

Let's take a look at what has been addressed in each build.
