Microsoft has just released the May 2022 Patch Tuesday Updates for Windows 11 and Windows 10. For Windows 11 users, today’s KB5013943 patch brings the usual security updates along with some quality improvements.
This update fixes an issue that was causing video subtitles to be misaligned or partially cut off. It also addresses another bug that was preventing users from using the minimize, maximize, and close buttons on a maximized app window.
Another notable addition we previously covered is related to the weather icon in the taskbar. If your taskbar is aligned on the left of your screen, the weather icon will now display temperature information, matching in some way the behavior of the news widget in the Windows 10 taskbar.
Microsoft has also released today the KB5013942 patch for Windows 10 versions 21H2, 21H1, and 20H2 today. This update fixes an issue that might cause a Microsoft OneDrive file to lose focus after you rename it and press the Enter key, and Microsoft also fixed another bug that caused the news and interest panel to appear when users didn’t click on it.
Today’s Patch Tuesday also marks the end of support for Windows 10 version 20H2 for Home and Pro users. Microsoft now recommends these users to update to the latest version of Windows 10, and upgrading to Windows 11 is also an alternative for devices that meet the OS’ minimum hardware requirements.
This month’s Patch Tuesday updates also include 74 new patches to address vulnerabilities in Windows, .NET, Visual Studio, Microsoft Edge, and more. You can learn more about the fixed vulnerabilities in our separate post published on Petri, our sister site for IT pros.
