June’s optional Windows 10 update is now available for download in Windows Update. Coming in at KB5014023 (OS Builds 19042.1741, 19043.1741, and 19044.1741,) the update fixes several key issues that have been nagging users.

There are six total issues patched in this release. The issues cover problems with Microsoft Office, IE mode in Edge, internet shortcuts, copying files, and more. Here’s the changelog.

  • Addresses a rare issue that prevents Microsoft Excel or Microsoft Outlook from opening.
  • Addresses an issue that affects the IE mode window frame.
  • Adressed an issue that causes file copying to be slower
  • Addresses a known issues that affects certain GPUs and might cause apps to close or cause itermittent issues that affect some apps that use Direct3D 9.
  • Addresses an issue that causes an Input Method Editor (IME) to discard a character if you enter the character while the IME is converting previous text.
  • Addresses an issue that prevents internet shortcuts from updating.

You’ll be finding this update if you’re on the three most recent versions of Windows 10. Again, though, the update is optional, so it won’t be forced on you. If you’re hesitant, you can wait until Patch Tuesday, when most of these fixes will be rolled out in with those round of updates.
