Microsoft is now rolling out this year’s second last security
update for Windows 10 version 2004 or later. The update is
rolling out via Windows Update. Additionally, Microsoft has
also published direct download links for Windows 10 KB5007186
offline installers.

KB5007186 is part of the company’s usual Patch Tuesday cycle,
which is a popular term for the day when new security updates
are released for Windows. This update patches security
vulnerabilities and includes previous fixes as well. That’s
because Microsoft gathers older fixes into the latest update,
which is downloaded automatically.

Another bug has been fixed where the lock screen background
appears black when you’ve configured a slideshow of pictures as
a lock screen background.

For enterprises and consumers, Microsoft has also addressed a
bug that could prevent some users from viewing the out-of-box
experience (OOBE) pages. This bug was experienced on devices
using credentials of Azure Active Directory and if you press
the Windows key five times.

Microsoft is also rolling out fixes for a bug affecting
Assigned Access kiosks that use Microsoft Edge as a kiosk
application. Microsoft has patched an issue where App-V causes
black screens to appear when users sign-in on the credentials
page.

between Windows Server 2019 Routing and RRAS servers.

Windows 10 version 2004 reaching the end of support

It’s worth noting that Windows 10 version 2004 will reach the
end of service in December 2021 and those still using it will
be automatically updated to version 21H1 or 21H2 whether they
like it or not.

Early next year, we’re expecting Microsoft to forcibly install
Windows 10’s latest updates on devices running certain outdated
versions. By early 2021, most users of version 2004 will be
required to download and install version 21H1 or newer. If
you’re using an unsupported PC, you will be notified of the end
of service via a notice on the Windows Update.

November 2021 Update is around the corner

As mentioned at the outset, Windows 10 November 2021 Update
(21H2) has cleared the final stage of testing and it is set to
land in the production channel in a few weeks.

November 2021 Update isn’t going to be a big update as
Microsoft’s focus is entirely on Windows 11.
However, you’re actually going to get some new features
when you upgrade to version 21H2.

Microsoft says the next feature update for Windows 10 will
enable support for the WPA3 H2E standard, which is a new and
enhanced Wi-Fi security. Additionally, Microsoft is also
bringing a new deployment method called cloud trust to enhance
the experience of Windows Hello for Business. This change would
result in passwordless deployments.

For consumers and developers, Microsoft is enabling GPU compute
support in the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL).
