Microsoft has released cumulative updates with non-security improvements  and fixes for Windows 10 April  2018 Update (version 1803) and Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (version 1709).

The updates are available from Windows Update or the Microsoft Update Catalog.

Note that there is a known issue for both versions if you use Microsoft Edge using the New Application Guard window.  If you’ve experienced the  issue and already installed the update, there is a work-around for Version 1803 in the  referenced KB article.  For Version 1709, Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release for that as well as an  additional known issue that affects some non-English platforms.
