KB5008212 is out with major bug fixes. Here are the direct links to download KB5008212 offline installer for Windows 10 operating system.
After missing the last Patch Tuesday, Microsoft released a new cumulative update for Windows 10 users. It is called the KB5008212 update. If you regularly install all Windows updates, the KB5008212 is just a security update. Otherwise, it will also fix and improve non-security parts of the operating system. This is how the cumulative updates work.
Some of the non-security things the KB5008212 will fix are the issues with File Explorer, bugs in video rendering, problems with the Start menu, spontaneous application crashes, Windows update issues, Windows search bugs, and more. When it comes to the security fixes, KB5008212 contains “several miscellaneous security improvements to internal OS functionality.” Other than the vague description, Microsoft did not elaborate on the actual security fixes and improvements. Presumably, the security fixes are plenty but minor and are not significant enough to get public documentation.
As always, you can download the KB5008212 update directly in Windows 10. Just open the Settings app, go to the “Update & Security > Windows Update,” and click the “Check for updates” button. If the update is available for your computer, it will be downloaded and installed automatically.
If needed, you can download the KB5008212 offline installer and install it like any other software. This is helpful to install KB5008212 on an offline machine or if the Windows update is misbehaving.
As always, you will find the link to download KB5008212 offline installer down below.
