The new version has improved Windows Hello and optimized the battery life in Modern Standby mode, with the following updates:

Fixes an issue that prevents voice applications from needing to open for a few minutes in a high-noise environment.

Improve the accuracy of Windows Hello face authentication.

An issue that may prevent ActiveX content from loading has been updated.

Improve battery performance in Modern Standby mode.

Fixed issues that failed to screenshot the window.

Fixed the add of the keyboard layout that is not needed after the upgrade to the default keyboard layout.

Fixed to prevent users from reactivating a copy of Windows using a product key stored in their Managed Services Account (MSA).

Fixes an issue that prevents some applications from printing to a network printer.

All of these fixes in Windows 10 v1809 will be included in next month’s Patch Tuesday update. Also note that Windows 10 v1809 Home and Professional will stop supporting in May this year, meaning that if you haven’t upgraded to a newer version of the operating system, Microsoft will soon automatically start the update process on your PC.
