Microsoft has just released new optional patches for Windows 10 versions 20H2 and 2004 which include a couple of minor fixes. The updates will appear as “KB4601382" in Windows Update, and the new bits address an issue with screen rendering after opening games with certain hardware configurations, as well as other issues affecting users with HDR displays or low-latency capable monitors.

The list of fixes is similar for both versions of the OS, and you can find the highlights below:
- Updates an issue that displays unexpected screens during the Windows Out of Box Experience (OOBE).
- Updates an issue in Advanced display settings that shows the incorrect refresh rates available for high dynamic range (HDR) displays.
- Updates an issue that might cause video playback to flicker when rendering on certain low-latency capable monitors.
- Updates an issue that sometimes prevents the input of strings into the Input Method Editor (IME).
- Updates an issue that might sometimes prevent some keyboard keys from working, such as the home, Ctrl, or left arrow keys. This issue occurs when you set the Japanese IME input mode to Kana.
- Updates an issue that displays the wrong language when you sign in to a console after you change the system locale.
- Updates an issue with screen rendering after opening games with certain hardware configurations.
- Displays the proper Envelope media type as a selectable output paper type for Universal Print queues.
- Updates support for hole punch and stapling locations for print jobs with long edge first paper feed direction on certain printers.
Microsoft also released new optional updates for the versions 1909 and 1809 last week, and you can find more details in our previous post. As usual, all the fixes included in these new optional patches will also be available in next month's Patch Tuesday update.
