Microsoft is rolling out Windows 11 KB5010414 cumulative update to the dev channel. The update brings several new features along with a few bug fixes.
Microsoft’s KB5010414 update is a part of their scheduled February 2022 monthly ”C” updates that let Windows 11 users test the fixes to be released in the upcoming March 8 Patch Tuesday update.
You might be wondering the difference between the C update and the Patch Tuesday update.
The C updates are optional and contain several bug fixes and performance enhancements but no security updates.
Whereas the Patch Tuesday update contains security fixes and bug fixes.
Users can install this update by navigating to the Settings > Windows Update.
Note: The KB5010414 is an optional update, so you must manually check for updates.
Alternatively, Windows 11 users can download the KB5010414 preview update from Microsoft Update Catalog.
On installing the KB5010414 update, Windows 11 users will observe the Windows taskbar enhancements (share windows in a few clicks).
Furthermore, the latest cumulative update also brings the Widget taskbar button to show the live weather information on hovering over the taskbar and added clocks and date info on the taskbar while working on a multi-monitor setup.
As we said before, the KB5010414 update also brings improvements and bug fixes. So let’s see what bug fixes are included in this update:
Now, you will be able to launch Office files directly in the browser from the Start menu. However, this will only work when you don’t have an Office license and open the file from the Start menu’s recommended section. The file will open in the desktop app if you have the license.
Some other improvements included in this cumulative update are:
- Addresses an issue that affected Remote Desktop app
