For users who are still using Windows 10 version 1909 (November 2019 Update), a new cumulative update is now available, which contains important security bug fixes. Microsoft has released the Windows 10 KB4598229 offline installer, which allows you to apply the patch to multiple computers in minutes.
Windows 10 KB4598229 is a security update that will automatically be applied to your compatible hardware.
This update will upgrade version 1909 to Windows 10 Build 18363.1316. Microsoft said it will not release any new cumulative updates for the 1903 version that expires in 1902. To get this patch, just go to the Windows Update page in the “Settings” app and click “Check for Updates”.
Remember that devices running Windows 10 version 20H2 or version 2004 will receive additional updates with unique bug fixes. Microsoft said that for Windows 10 version 20H2, it will launch Build 19042.746.

Windows 10 KB4598229 (Build 18363.1316) Full Changelog:
Windows 10 Build 18363.1316 comes with security improvements for Microsoft Office products and basic system operations.
This patch also includes security fixes for other components, such as Windows Media and Windows Foundation.
In addition to the security fix, Microsoft has also fixed an issue where the device may crash due to the blue screen of death when you run the “check disk” command.
In the update log of KB4598229, Microsoft confirmed that it is still investigating reports about possible loss of user certificates when updating devices from Windows 10 version 1809. This problem can also be reproduced when using outdated ISO images.
AUTOMATIC UPDATE TO VERSION 2004:
In the next few months, Microsoft will begin to force the installation of Windows 10 version 2004 on devices running version 1909 and version 1903 of the operating system.
Windows 10 version 1903 has terminated its service and users have been forced to upgrade to version 1909. For version 1909, Microsoft now also plans to compulsorily download and install the Windows 10 2004 version released in May 2020.
This is because version 1909 will stop receiving important security updates, and Microsoft is trying to minimize attacks by forcing users to upgrade to a supported version (such as version 2004 or 20H2). If your device is affected, Microsoft will notify you directly via a notification on the Windows Update page.
