This week Microsoft began distributing the KB5005611 update package, which targets devices running Windows 10 (21H1), Windows 10 (20H2), and Windows 10 (2004). The update is deployed through Windows Update and is also available via direct links leading to offline installers. The package is optional, so it will not be downloaded to the user’s computers automatically.
Although KB5005611 contains no security fixes, it has received many fixes for known issues. The developers have fixed a bug due to which the system clock could show the wrong time after switching to daylight saving time. Fixed a bug due to which applications such as Microsoft Outlook could crash spontaneously during normal use. Fixed the work of the Outlook add-in, which in some cases prevented the input of a reply to messages.
Fixed a bug due to which the icons of the “News and Interests” widget could become blurry when using some screen resolutions. Fixed a bug due to which the News and Interests widget was automatically displayed when you right-click on the taskbar, even if this function is disabled in the settings. Fixed a bug that in some cases could break the device’s performance after a reboot. The problem with the distortion of the sound quality recorded by voice assistants has been resolved. The developers also made a lot of other changes that are aimed at improving the stability of the operating system.
