As part of this release, Microsoft has highlighted a fix for PowerShell that caused transcript log’s output to be missing information.

Other highlighted fixes in today’s update include:
- Addresses an issue that prevents the Pashto language from appearing in the language list.
- Addresses an issue that affects the touchpad area that responds to a right-click (the right-click zone).
- Addresses a known issue that might prevent you from using the Wi-Fi hotspot feature.
- Addresses a known issue that might prevent the Snip & Sketch app from capturing a screenshot or from opening using the keyboard shortcut (Windows logo key+Shift+S).
Windows 10 version 1809’s KB5015811 also comes with identical bug fixes and is rolling out via Windows Update on devices with extended security updates.
