Microsoft has just released a new optional patch for the Windows 10 May 2020 Update, which brings a couple of quality fixes ahead of next month’s Patch Tuesday. Here are the main fixes that Microsoft highlighted in this new build 19041.423:

  • Updates an issue with pasting mixed content of images and text from Microsoft Word into Internet Explorer.
  • Updates an issue that might cause the Magnifier to stop working in Microsoft Excel in certain scenarios. As a result, Microsoft Excel might also stop working.
  • 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 that causes the Settings page to close unexpectedly, which prevents default applications from being set up properly.
  • Updates an issue that prevents some applications from printing to network printers.
  • Updates an issue that might prevent internet connectivity on some cellular modems after upgrading to Windows 10, version 2004.
  • Updates an issue that prevents family safety features, such as time limits and activity reporting, from working on ARM64 devices.

For Windows Insiders in the Beta channel, Microsoft has also released today the build 19042.423. “This release is a re-release of 20H2 19042.421 from last week but brings it to parity with the Windows 10 May 2020 (20H1) servicing as of today,” the Windows Insider team explained. In other words, this new build includes the same fixes as the build 19041.423 for non-Insiders running the May 2020 Update.
