Microsoft is starting this February 2021 with a new optional update for Windows 10 v2004 users. Being an optional update, Windows 10 will not install it automatically. You either have to manually trigger the update from the Settings app or download and install the KB4598291 offline installer. In fact, Microsoft already released the KB4598291 update once a few weeks back for Windows 10 v20H2 users. Now, the same fixes and improvements are coming to the v2004 users.

The KB4598291 itself is pretty small but fixes some important things in Windows. Some of them include but not limited to freezing when playing games on full screen, fix for incorrect daylight saving settings, problems with opening documents located on the desktop, issues with modifier keys when using Japanese keyboard layout, etc. All in all, this is a pretty small update that if you don’t need it, you don’t have to install it.

To install the update, open the Settings app, go to “Update & Security → Windows Update” and click on the “Check for updates” button. If your system is supported, Windows will download and install the KB4598291 update.
