Changes and Improvements

Fixed an issue with searchindexer that prevented searchindexer after disconnecting from continuing to keep credentials in the search by user database in the profile path, “C: Users username AppData Roaming Microsoft Search Data Applications “. Therefore, the search index stops working and duplicate profile names are created. Fixed an issue that prevented Game Services from opening certain games for desktop users. Fixed an issue that prevented you from entering text using the Input Method Editor (IME). This can happen, for example, after startup if you have configured the power options to turn off a laptop by closing the lid. The functionality to load a new activity into the timeline has been changed. Now, when syncing activity history across multiple devices using a Microsoft account (MSA), new activities cannot be uploaded to the timeline. You can still use Timeline and view your activity history (app, website, and recent file information) on your local device. This does not affect Azure Active Directory (AAD) accounts. Fixed an issue that could cause the File Explorer window to lose focus when mapping a network drive. Addresses an issue that prevented File Explorer from working after reaching 99% completion when deleting many files on a mapped network drive. Fixed a time issue in Group Policy log telemetry that caused Group Policy extension processing to fail. Addresses an issue that repeatedly rebuilds Windows Filtering Platform (WFP) filters. This issue occurs when a device is enrolled in a Mobile Device Management (MDM) service and “MDMWinsOverGP” is configured. Fixed an issue with an MDM service not correctly enforcing certain spam rules. This release fixes a bug that causes Update Version Revision (UBR) to always be reported as zero (0) on a device when signing up for the MDM service. Fixed an issue that caused the Elliptical Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA) certificate enrollment to fail with the error “0x80090027 NTE_INVALID_PARAMETER”. This problem occurs when the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) provider (Microsoft’s software key storage provider) stores the key. Fixed an issue with audit events 4624 and 5142 displaying the wrong event model when the display language is Dutch. Fixed an issue that caused a memory leak in the integrity of the system. Fixed an issue that played the sound to select something in a game aloud when pressing the fire button on a game controller. This release fixes a bug that prevented power plans and game mode to work as expected. This results in lower frame rates and reduced performance while gaming. Fixed an issue where “Internal network access” was displayed on the network icon in the taskbar on systems that access Internet from certain domains. Fixed an issue where the Network Connectivity Status Indicator (NCSI) does not detect Internet connectivity after connecting to a Virtual Private Network (VPN). This release fixes a bug that caused printing to stop or improper output to be printed. This issue occurs when you print using a USB connection after upgrading to Windows 10, version 2004 or later. Fixed a rare issue that could degrade the performance of applications that call Gdiplus.dll! Closed loop GdipMeasureString with a new source on each call.

Fixes an issue where Set-RDSessionCollectionConfiguration did not set the cameratoredirect: s: value custom property. Fixed a local Security Authority Subsystem Service (LSASS) domain controller memory leak reported in Privileged Access Management (PAM) deployments. Addresses an issue that prevented you from accessing a network drive mapped to a Distributed File System (DFS) root after disconnecting. Fixed an issue that prevented reconnecting to mapped network drives after logging in and displayed an access denied error. This problem occurs if you use the net use / deep option to create multiple drive mappings to different paths on the same encrypted file share. Fixed an issue that prevented access to files on a Server Message Block (SMB) share when you enable Access Enabled Enumeration (ABE). Fixed an issue that prevented the Windows Server service from starting if SrvComment was longer than 128 characters. This release fixes a bug in the Windows Network File System (NFS) client that could prevent you from renaming a file after mounting an NFS share. This problem occurs if you rename the file using File Explorer, but does not occur if you rename the file using the command line. Fixed an issue with an unhandled critical exception in the Open File dialog box. Therefore, Microsoft Foundation Class (MFC) applications may quit unexpectedly. Fixed an issue where the Storage Sense page in settings could incorrectly report the size of some storage devices that use the GUID Partition Table (GPT). Affected devices will incorrectly report in Storage Sense that the size is double the size reported in File Explorer. Note: This issue does not affect storage devices that use Master Boot Record (MBR).
