Windows 10 PC cumulative update 10586.104:

Microsoft released Windows 10 PC cumulative update and an Insider preview for Mobile last week. Yesterday we heard that Windows 10 Mobile will receive another preview build 10586.104 slated for a release next week. New report now claims that Windows 10 PC too will receive a cumulative update carrying same build number. Remember, Insider program is separate from the general cumulative updates pushed out to all the users.

No new features are expected to be part of this upcoming cumulative build as it is to bring usual bug fixes and performance improvements. Some users have been reporting random reboots and performance lags after the last cumulative update was released on Wednesday, last week. The upcoming update might bring a fix to these issues among other enhancements to the PC and Surface line. The Windows 10 PC cumulative update 10586.104 is likely to release on the coming Patch Tuesday, February 9, according to WindowsCentral.

Microsoft released Windows 10 Redstone build 14257 last night, while Windows 10 Mobile Insider members are currently testing preview build 10586.71, the same build number for the last Windows 10 PC cumulative update. With reports of Microsoft testing Windows 10 Mobile 10586.104, it's very likely that the desktops and tablets too will receive a new cumulative update carrying the same build number.

Note that Microsoft was supposed to release Windows 10 PC cumulative update 10586.71 on Patch Tuesday last week, which actually came out on the next Wednesday. With the preview and cumulative builds often facing last-minute issues, the actual releases often fall out of the expected timeline. We will update you as any more details arrive. Don't forget to let us know if you too are facing any issues after the last Windows 10 PC cumulative update.
