Microsoft has been offering a new cumulative update for Windows 11, KB5015882, for several hours now. It’s not obligatory. Clearly, manual intervention is required to initiate its download and installation.
The new Windows 11 update is available for download. Named KB5015882, it is offered through the Windows Update service. This is an optional version that requires user intervention. While this maintenance is available for all Windows 11 PCs, it is not automatic as it is a preview of content scheduled for next Patch Tuesday.
We have fixes, improvements or changes. For example, Microsoft specifies the ability to activate emergency notifications even if focus assist is activated. During the first connection, a new option is offered to offer an upgrade to the latest version of Windows 11. File Explorer is a fix target to resolve crash issues.
On this subject, the giant explains
We fixed an issue resulting in explorer.exe crashing when using the play and pause buttons on the keyboard on some devices. We also fixed an issue resulting in explorer.exe crashing when using the Start menu context menu (Win+X) while an external monitor is connected to your device.”
Following the rollout of “master search results” in a previous update, the giant is adding a new strategy to enable this feature on company computers.
“To access the search update policy (on a device that has the June 2022 Cumulative Update Preview or the July 2022 Monthly Quality Patch installed), navigate to C:WindowsPolicyDefinitions and search for Search. admx. For your convenience, we will soon publish an updated version of Administrative Templates (.admx) for Windows 11 version 21H2 on the Microsoft Download Center.”
KB5015882 contains no new known issues. The only bug from the previous version. This causes Microsoft Edge browser tabs in IE mode to stop working.
