It’s that time of the month again and Microsoft today is releasing cumulative updates for all supported versions of Windows 10. This set of updates follows last month’s updates for Windows 10. Today’s updates are in the form of KB5005565 and cover Windows 10 versions 21H1, 20H2, and version 2004. As usual, there are no new features to report, but there are a few fixes to note.
Windows 10 September Patch Tuesday
This update will cover all three current versions of Windows 10 and will bump your build to 19043.1237, 19042.1237, and 19041.1237 repectively. Here are the highlighted fixes with this update:
- Addresses an issue that causes PowerShell to create an infinite number of child directories. This issue occurs when you use the PowerShell Move-Item command to move a directory to one of its children. As a result, the volume fills up and the system stops responding.
- Updates a rare condition that causes Bluetooth headsets to only work for voice calls.
- Updates an issue that provides the wrong Furigana result when you cancel the Japanese reconversion.
- Updates an issue that resets syncing for Microsoft OneDrive to “Known folders only” after you install a Windows update.
- Updates an issue that prevents audio headsets that connect to a device using USB from working if the device has certain third-party audio drivers.
- Updates an issue with resizing images that might produce flickering and residual line artifacts.
- Updates an issue that prevents you from typing any words in the username box during the out-of-box experience (OOBE) process. This issue occurs when you use the Chinese Input Method Editor (IME).
- Updates an issue with copying and pasting a text box into Office 365 apps. If you use an IME, you won’t be able to insert text into the text box.
- Updates an issue that might cause your device to stop working when making a touch input gesture. This issue occurs if you bring more fingers into contact with the touchpad or screen during the middle of the gesture.
- Updates an issue that might cause an external monitor to display a black screen after Hibernation. This issue might occur when the external monitor connects to a docking station using a certain hardware interface.
- Updates an issue that resets the brightness for standard dynamic range (SDR) content on high-dynamic range (HDR) monitors. This occurs after you restart your device or reconnect to the device remotely.
