These are the fixes and new features available with the latest update of Windows 11:

  • Fixed an issue that affects some apps that were not signed by the Microsoft Store. You must reinstall them after you upgrade the OS.

  • Fixed an issue that affects Task Manager. It stops working when you switch between light and dark mode or change the accent color.
  • Fixed an issue that affects the font of three Chinese characters. When you format these characters as bold, the width size is wrong.

  • Fixed an issue that might cause an application to stop responding. This might occur when the input queue overflows.
  • Fixed an issue that affects XML Paper Specification (XPS) viewers. This might stop you from opening XPS files in some non-English languages. These include some Japanese and Chinese character encodings. This issue affects XPS and Open XPS (OXPS) files.
  • Fixed an issue that creates a duplicate print queue. Because of this, the original print queue stops working.
  • Fixed an issue that might bypass MSHTML and ActiveX rules for Windows Defender Application Control (WDAC).
  • Fixed an issue that affects the Miracast UI. Sometimes it closes too soon when you cast to devices that use the DeviceObjectType:Aep.
  • We added more dynamic Widgets content to your taskbar with notification badging. When you open the Widgets board, a banner appears at the top of the board. It provides more information about what triggered the notification badge.
  • Fixed an issue that affects the SharedPC account manager. The issue stops it from deleting many accounts during cleanup.
  • Fixed an issue that causes LogonUI.exe to stop working. Because of this, you cannot dismiss the lock screen to view the credentials screen.
