Good morning,

Windows 10 runs on a "patch Tuesday" cycle. Every month, you have 3 updates, generally.
Updates are cumulative.
2nd Tuesday is for security patches and is critical: it is pushed to all machines.
3rd and 4th Tuesday are quality (bug fixing) patches and are optional: only users going to Check for updates will be offered the update.

Because updates are cumulative, users who don't manually check will get the fix as part of the next critical update after second Tuesday of September.

You may see the coding, or may not, I don't remember. The code is month followed by a letter selecting the week in the month. So this update will be 8D (4th week of 8th month), but can also appear as just cumulative patch. Bug fixes are not individually distributed.

Kind regards,
Alban Rampon
