Windows 10 KB5014023 update

Windows 10 KB5014023 is now available for users in the
production channel as an optional update. The optional update
doesn’t come with new features for the OS and it’s available
via the Settings app. As always, you can download the offline
installer of Windows 10 KB5014023 to install the patch without
running into Windows Update issues.

KB5014023 won’t install automatically and there’s a reason why
it is marked as a ‘preview’ cumulative update. Optional updates
come with specific non-security fixes and you should only
install these updates if you immediately need bug fixes
contained in the patch.

In other words, it’s generally a good idea to avoid installing
these optional updates unless you have a good reason to do so.
If your computer is working properly and you do not have the
issues mentioned in the release notes below, you should not
install any of these optional updates.

If you do have a problem that’s mentioned in the release notes,
but you can wait until the next Patch Tuesday update, you
should wait. That’s the advice we’re giving based on our
analysis of previous optional updates and it’s the same advice
the company gives to enterprises. However, generally
optional updates are stable for most configurations.

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

Windows 10 KB5014023 (Build 19044.1741) Full Changelog

As part of Windows 10’s May 2022 optional update, Microsoft is
updating the built-in sorting feature which should address the
sorting issue that could affect Japanese half-width katakana.

Another bug has been fixed that could have prevented enrollment
by disconnecting from the internet.

Microsoft has also patched an issue that might run AnyCPU app
as a 32-bit process and another bug has been fixed where adding
a trusted user, group, or computer will fail with an error
message stating “The object selected doesn’t match the type of
destination source”.

The aforementioned bug fixes are aimed at enterprises, but
Microsoft has fixed a number of issues that would directly
affect consumers.

For example, Windows 10 Build 19044.1741 has fixed an issue
that causes file copying to be slower than usual. Copying files
between partitions or drives is essential for anyone, but a bug
in the OS has been slowing down the copying process.

Microsoft says a wrong calculation of write buffers within
cache manager has been causing issues for users and it has been
fixed in this release.

Likewise, a rare issue that crashes Excel and Outlook has been
fixed in the update. A related memory leak bug has been fixed
as well.

Here’s a list of bug fixes in Windows 10 Build 19044.1682:

  • Microsoft has fixed an issue that affects the Internet
    Explorer mode window frame.
  • Microsoft has fixed an issue that prevents internet
    shortcuts from updating on Windows.
  • Microsoft has fixed an issue that causes print failures
    when a low integrity level (LowIL).
  • Microsoft has fixed an issue that might affect the
    reliability of the terminal Services Gateway (TS Gateway)
  • Microsoft has fixed an issue where the system would stop
    responding if a user signs out of a Microsoft OneDrive account
    in use.
  • Microsoft has fixed an issue where BitLocker encryption
    won’t work on a device that uses the silent encryption option.
  • Microsoft has fixed an issue that affects the mouse cursor
    within Microsoft Defender Application Guard (MDAG), Microsoft
    Office, and Microsoft Edge. This bug is apparently linked to a
    feature called virtual graphics processing unit (GPU) which is
    apparently optional and the bug isn’t widespread as it might
  • Microsoft has fixed an issue that causes a yellow
    exclamation point to display in Device Manager. This bug is
    apparently hitting Bluetooth remote devices that have Advanced
    Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP).

In addition to the above bug fixes, Microsoft has also patched
an issue where users cannot recover their operating system
using recovery discs (CD or DVD), especially if you created
them using Windows 7-era Backup and Restore functionality in
Control Panel.

A widespread issue that affects certain GPUs and
crashes apps that depend on Direct3D 9 has been fixed. Your
apps should no longer crash after deploying the cumulative
update, according to Microsoft’s release notes.

There’s another important bug related to the performance of the
issue. As per the release notes, Microsoft has fixed an issue
where Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) provider
(ClustWMI.dll) causes high CPU usage.
