    Windows 10

    Microsoft has unleashed the KB5036892 cumulative update for versions 21H2 and 22H2 of Windows 10, providing users with twenty-three changes and two brand new features.

    KB5036892 is a mandatory update for Windows 10 and includes Microsoft’s security updates for the month of April 2024.

    To install this update, Windows users can simply open Settings, navigate to Windows Update, and manually select ‘Check for Updates.’

    Since this is a mandatory update, it will automatically begin installing once the user checks for updates. To make this process more convenient, it is possible to schedule a time for the update to be completed after restarting the computer.

    For those who prefer to manually download and install the KB5036892 update, it is also available on the Microsoft Update Catalog.

    What’s New in Windows 10 KB5036892

    The KB5036892 update mostly consists of bug fixes and improvements, but also introduces two new features.

    The first addition is Windows Spotlight, which allows users to have constantly rotating desktop backgrounds. This feature can be enabled in Settings > Personalization > Background > Personalize your background by selecting Windows spotlight.

    The second new feature is the display of more information on the lock screen, including weather, sports, traffic, and finance updates. Those who find this feature bothersome can disable it in Settings > Personalization > Lock screen.

    Along with these two features, the update also includes twenty-one other fixes and changes, some of which are highlighted below:

    • A fix has been implemented for an issue affecting the touch keyboard that would sometimes prevent it from opening.

    • Users might receive a message promoting an upgrade to Windows 11 upon signing in. This message will only appear if the device is eligible for an upgrade.

    • New! An update has been made to Windows Hello for Business, allowing IT admins to use mobile device management to disable the prompt that appears when users sign in to an Entra-joined machine. A new policy setting, “DisablePostLogonProvisioning,” can be turned on to achieve this. After signing in, provisioning will be turned off for both Windows 10 and Windows 11 devices.

    • New! The taskbar search box for European Economic Area users now includes search highlights. More information about this can be found in the Windows Search providers section.

    Despite these developments, two issues from previous updates are still present in this one, namely Copilot causing icons to switch between multiple monitors and the fact that Copilot is not supported if the taskbar is located vertically on the left or right side of the screen.

    In addition to the above mentioned fixes, this update also includes the changes included in the previous month’s preview update, KB5035941.
