Microsoft Windows 10 Update fixed the private browsing in Edge Browser

InPrivate Mode Fix

A new Windows 10 update is now available for users that will fix a bug in Microsoft Edge InPrivate mode and offers other improvements.

Microsoft has included a changelog for the new update, which will help users know of all the changes in the new version. This is a first, as usually the update just includes the new version number and installation codes. It didn’t really tell what the update would fix or improve.

A bug in Microsoft Edge caused the browser to keep a cache of all websites and logins even when using the InPrivate Mode. The InPrivateMode didn’t keep your browsing private at all. Microsoft was aware of this problem and stated that it wasn’t how the mode was supposed to work.

In the new update, Microsoft has fixed several other bugs as well. Here’s the complete changelog;

  • Fixed issues with authentication, update installation, and operating system installation.
  • Fixed issue that didn’t allow simultaneous install of apps from the Windows Store and updates from Windows Update.
  • Fixed issue that delayed the availability of songs added to the Groove Music app in Windows 10 Mobile.
  • Improved security in the Windows kernel.
  • Fixed security issues that could allow remote code execution when malware is run on a target system.
  • Fixed security issues in Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11 that could allow code from a malicious website to be installed and run on a device.
  • Fixed additional issues with the Windows UX, Windows 10 Mobile, Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft Edge, and taskbar.
  • Fixed additional security issues with.NET Framework, Windows Journal, Active Directory Federation Services, NPS Radius Server, kernel-mode drivers, and WebDAV.

To get the latest update, you’ll simply have to use the Windows Update feature on your PC. Once the update is downloaded, your PC will restart and install the updates.

The new Windows 10 update takes the version number up to 1511, and the update code is KB3135173. Microsoft also noted that this would be the only update for this month.
