Microsoft has rolled out Windows 11 KB5020044 Cumulative Update for all of its Windows 11 editions, version 22H2.
The update brings about 25 bug fixes and improvements along with alerts for the OneDrive storage limit and fixes the File Explorer crash whenever a user closes the context menu and menu items.
Like every other cumulative update, the KB5020044 release doesn’t contain any security updates, so it’s an optional update.
Meanwhile, users can install the preview update by heading over to Settings > Windows Update and then clicking the ‘Check for the Updates’ button.
Note: As this is an optional update, users need to manually install the update by clicking the Download and Install link.
Alternatively, users can download and install the Windows 11 KB5020044 cumulative update via the Microsoft Update Catalog.
A few of the highlighted fixes and improvements included in the cumulative update are:
- Gives Microsoft OneDrive subscribers storage alerts on the Systems page in the Settings app. The alerts appear when you are close to your storage limit.
- Provides the full amount of the storage capacity of all your OneDrive subscriptions. It also displays the total storage on the Accounts page in the Settings app.
- Combines Windows Spotlight with Themes on the Personalization page. This makes it easier for you to discover and turn on the Windows Spotlight feature.
- Addresses a known issue that affects the Input Method Editor (IME). Certain applications might stop responding. This occurs when you use keyboard shortcuts to change the input mode of the IME.
- Addresses an issue that causes File Explorer to stop working. This occurs when you close context menus and menu items.
Additionally, Microsoft said, “there will be no preview or non-security releases for Windows 10 or Windows 11 during the month of December. Preview releases generally target the third week of the month. There will be a December security update release as usual.”
