Windows 10 KB5010415 update brings several improvements

Windows 10 KB5010415 is now available as an optional update and
it comes with two new features for power users. The update is
being rolled out via WU, but users can always download the
offline installer of Windows 10 KB5010415 and manually update
the system by running the installer.

KB5010415 is an optional update designed for deployment on
production devices and it is considered safer than the
technical preview builds offered in channels like Dev or Beta.
It is generally a good idea to skip optional updates unless you
really need the patch to address an isolated problem in your
system.

As you’re probably aware, today’s optional update includes
fixes that will be bundled in future cumulative updates, such
as the upcoming March 2022 Patch Tuesday release or even April
2022 Patch Tuesday. That’s because the latest updates also
apply missing fixes from the previous updates.

There are two new features in this release, but they’re aimed
at enterprises or advanced customers. As per the changelog, you
can now share cookies between Microsoft Edge Internet Explorer
mode and Microsoft Edge. Likewise, Microsoft added support for
hot adding and the removal of non-volatile memory (NVMe).

If you check for updates today, you will see the following
patch under optional updates section:

Windows 10 KB5010415 Direct Download Links: 64-bit and
32-bit (x86).

As always, it is possible to deploy this month’s optional
update via Windows Update and Microsoft Update Catalog. In case
the Windows Update method isn’t working on your device or the
process is slow, you can use Microsoft Update Catalog to
download the offline installer (.msi package).

On Update Catalog, make sure that you identify the correct OS
version and click on the “Download” button next to the most
appropriate architecture. This will open a new popup window
where you need to copy the .msu link and paste it into another
tab of the browser.

run a terminal server using certain VDI has been addressed
in this update. This bug resulted in a regression whereby

CSharedLock in rpcss.exe.
