Microsoft released a new security update for Windows 10 v21H1, v20H2, and v2004 users on Tuesday. Unlike the previous updates, the KB5005565 is mandatory. This means, as long as the automatic updates are enabled, the KB5005565 update will be installed on all supported versions automatically. That being said, unlike the previous security patches, the KB5005565 update is pretty small in terms of what it does and patches. In fact, Microsoft did not even detail most of the patch notes.
The KB5005565 update fixes the issue where PowerShell creates an infinite number of child directories when using the Move-Item command to move a directory. In addition to that, this update also fixes several Bluetooth connection issues when using third-party drivers and USB Bluetooth devices, degraded video quality, occasional system crashes when using gestures on the touchpad and other input devices, black screen issues, etc.
As always, the Windows Settings app makes it really easy to install the update. Just open the Settings app and go to the “Update & Security > Windows Update” page and click on the “Check for updates” button.
