The Windows 10 October 2018 update introduced quite a few issues which made headlines across. And Microsoft has quickly taken up the initiative to fix the problems that have either been reported or detected by the team. The company has now released the Windows 10 Build 17763.168 which brings with it fixes for the issues like brightness control, file association and quite a few other operating system features. Microsoft confirms that the critical issues have been fixed first and the update is available for a wide variety of devices, according to the Windows 10 Update History page.

Most of these problems are being faxed by the businesses that are running the incompatible Morphisec and Cisco software. One of the problems that regular consumers might be facing is related to an older version of Apple iCloud which has now been fixed with the new patch.

One of the more annoying bugs that was found after the new October update was the File Association bug. This was discovered earlier last month, which prevented users from changing the default file type of certain files no matter how it was done. This has now been fixed with the new patch.

The other major issue found in the October Windows 10 update was related to brightness, and the bug apparently reset the brightness to 50 percent every time the system was rebooted. This has been patched as well.
