Microsoft has released a new cumulative update for Windows Update PC on October 10, 2018 (version 1809). Like other cumulative updates, the new KB4497934 offers many bug fixes and performance improvements. But what is unusual in this update is that it also presents new features.

Apart from repairs, you can now decide when to install feature updates.  Starting with the KB4497934 update, we present a feature that lets you decide when to install feature updates. You control when you get a feature update at the same time you update your device. Update functions available for eligible devices will appear in separate modules on the Windows Update page (Settings> Update and Security> Windows Update). If you want the update available immediately, select Download and Install now.

Otherwise, the update will bring the operating system to version 17763.529. The cumulative update KB4497934 offers the following improvements.
