Microsoft rolls out new optional updates for Windows 10

Microsoft has released an optional, non-security update for Windows 10. It’s the preview for April patch day – and this time there are some exciting innovations and bug fixes. The fact that Microsoft is now also unlocking new features for users apart from the major Windows feature updates should be known. There was such a feature launch last month and it will be again in April. With the optional updates for Windows 10 for March, Microsoft gives a preview of the upcoming changes. The update starts for users of Windows 10 versions 21H2, 21H1, and 20H2. An important innovation is the so-called Search Highlights (we reported).

The update fixes a number of issues that emerged after patch day or some of which have been known for a long time. These are non-security updates later listed in the Knowledge Base as KB5011543. However, Microsoft has not yet published descriptions of the updates. Therefore, we do not yet know the full details of the changes. While this is not common with updates, it has happened again and again in recent months. If data is available in time, we will pass it on later. The previews or optional updates correspond to the prerelease versions of Windows previously released as C updates. If nothing is wrong, the bug fixes contained therein will be automatically distributed to all users on patch day in April.

Lots of changes in the preview

However, Microsoft does not start the distribution right away, as it does with the security-related updates. The update brings builds 19042.1561, 19043.1561, and 19044.1561. The Windows team is testing several bug fixes and improvements with this update. Anyone who would already benefit from the bug fixes and would like to can get the update right now. Optional updates are offered through the Windows update feature. You have to find it yourself and launch it from the “Optional Updates” menu item so that it loads and installs.
