Microsoft has released today new optional updates for older versions of Windows 10, including the versions 1909 and 1903 released last year. The patch KB4577062 includes various fixes for issues affecting HDR content, digital inking, and Windows Mixed reality, and here are the highlights:

  • Adds a notification to Internet Explorer 11 that informs users about the end of support for Adobe Flash in December 2020. For more information, see KB4581051.
  • Updates an issue that causes certain apps to go into an unwanted repair cycle. As a result, a user cannot use that app during that time.
  • Updates an issue that might display 4K high dynamic range (HDR) content darker than expected when you configure certain non-HDR systems for HDR Streaming.
  • Updates an issue to reduce the likelihood of missing fonts.
  • Updates an issue that causes a device to stop responding after you have been using a pen for several hours.
  • Reduces distortions and aberrations in Windows Mixed Reality head-mounted displays (HMD).

The version 1809 of the OS, which will continue to get mainstream support through November 2020, also received the optional patch KB4577069 today. You can find a list of highlights below:

  • Adds a notification to Internet Explorer 11 that informs users about the end of support for Adobe Flash in December 2020. For more information, see KB4581051.
  • Updates an issue to reduce the likelihood of missing fonts.
  • Updates an issue that causes applications to close unexpectedly when a user inputs East Asian characters after changing the keyboard layout.
  • Updates an issue that causes Microsoft Office applications to close unexpectedly when using a Korean Input Method Editor (IME).

Microsoft will likely release more optional updates for other versions of Windows 10 later this month, and as usual, all these fixes will be included in next month’s Patch Tuesday updates. Stay tuned to OnMSFT as we’ll let you know if the May 2020 Update (version 2004) also gets new optional fixes in the coming days.
