Although the prominence these days is Windows 11, at Microsoft they are not abandoning their current operating system and announced a few hours ago the launch of a new compilation aimed at users who are part of the Insider program for Windows in the Preview channel. This is version 19043.1202 for Windows 10 21H1.

A version that mainly focuses on bug fixes and includes all the improvements already provided with version 19043.1200. Corrections in Windows Update, bug fixes related to images in SDR, problems with USB audio … Here is the complete list of improvements.

Improvements and fixes

Fixed a bug that prevented the Windows Update settings page from responding after downloading an optional update. Fixed an issue that prevented users from tracking Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM) activation failures. Fixed a thread issue that could cause the Windows Remote Management (WinRM) service to stop under heavy load. Addresses an issue that caused the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) provider host process to stop. This occurs because of an uncontrolled access violation that occurs when the Desired State Parameter (DSC) is used. Fixed an issue that caused files to fail to migrate between Distributed File System (DFS) paths stored on different volumes. This problem occurs when you implement the migration by using PowerShell scripts that use the Move-Item command. Addresses an issue that prevented you from writing to a WMI repository after a low memory condition. Fixed an issue that resets the brightness of Standard Dynamic Range (SDR) content on High Dynamic Range (HDR) monitors. This happens after restarting the system or reconnecting to the system remotely. Fixed an issue that could cause a black screen to display on an external monitor after hibernation. This problem can occur when the external monitor is connected to a docking station through a certain hardware interface. Fixed a memory leak that occurs when using nested classes in VBScript. Fixed an issue that prevented you from entering words in the username box during the out-of-the-box experience (OOBE) process. This problem occurs when you use the Chinese Input Method Editor (IME). Fixed an issue that prevented applications using a wedge from working. This issue occurs on devices where edgegdi.dll is not installed. The error message is “Code execution cannot continue because edgegdi.dll was not found.” Fixes an issue that could prevent you from minimizing an app that uses themed windows. Addresses an issue that could prevent your device from working during a touch input gesture. This issue occurs if you put more fingers in contact with the touchpad or the screen in the middle of the gesture. Fixed an issue with resizing the image that could cause flicker and residual line artifacts. Addresses an issue when copying and pasting a text box in Office 365 apps. IME prevents you from inserting text into the text box. Fixed an issue preventing USB audio headphones from working on laptops that support USB audio download. Fixed an issue that prevented code integrity rules from working correctly when specifying package family name rules in a code integrity policy. This problem occurs because of the incorrect handling of case-sensitive names. Fixed an issue that prevented the ShellHWDetection service from starting on a Privileged Access Workstation (PAW) device and prevented you from managing BitLocker Drive Encryption. Fixed an issue in Windows Defender Exploit Protection that prevented some Microsoft Office applications from working on machines with certain processors. Fixed an issue that caused the IME toolbar to appear even when the remote application was closed. Fixed an issue that could occur when configuring the policy, “Delete user profiles older than a specified number of days when restarting the system.” »If a user has been logged on for longer than specified in the policy, the device may unexpectedly delete profiles during startup. Microsoft fixed an issue with Microsoft OneDrive’s “Always keep on this device” sync settings. The settings are unexpectedly reset to “known folders only” after you install Windows updates. Microsoft fixes an issue that provides an incorrect Furigana result when a user cancels Japanese recycling. Fixed a rare issue that prevented the Bluetooth headset from connecting using the Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) for music playback, causing the headset to only work for voice calls. The “Target product version” rule has been added. With this, administrators can specify which Windows product they want devices to migrate to or stay on (for example, Windows 10 or Windows 11). The default number of entries in the Local Security Authority (LSA) search cache has been increased to improve search performance in high search volume scenarios. Fixed an issue that could create duplicate built-in local accounts, such as an administrator or guest account, during an in-place upgrade. This problem occurs if you previously renamed these accounts. Therefore, the Local Users and Groups MMC (msc) snap-in appears blank without accounts after the upgrade. This update removes duplicate accounts from the local Security Account Manager (SAM) database on affected computers. If the system detects and removes duplicate accounts, it logs a Directory-Services-SAM event, ID 16986, in the System event log. Fixed an issue that could cause transfer commits to fail with the error “HRESULT E_FAIL was returned from a call to a COM component”. This problem occurs when you use Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, or Windows Server 2012 as fonts. Fixed an issue that could prevent a system from functioning after a deduplication filter detected corruption at a reparse point. This problem occurs because of changes to the deduplication driver that were introduced in a previous update. Fixed issue with using robocopy command with backup option (/ B) to correct data loss. This issue occurs when the source location contains tiered Azure File Sync files or tiered cloud files. Over 1,400 new mobile device management (MDM) policies have been activated. With them, you can configure policies that are also compatible with group policies. These new MDM policies include Administrative Model (ADMX) policies such as App Compat, Event Forwarding, Service, and Task Scheduler. Starting in September 2021, you can use the Microsoft Endpoint Manager (MEM) Configuration Catalog to configure these new MDM policies.

If you belong to the Insider program version preview channel, you can download the update by following the usual route, namely “Settings> Update & Security> Windows Update”.
