There is a new optional update for all Windows 10 users running the latest versions right on the queue. If you are wondering, those are the v21H2, v21H1, and v20H2.

As with most updates, the KB5011831 is filled with many bug fixes and improvements. Mainly, the KB5011831 update fixes the occasional operating system crash with a black screen when signing out and in. In addition to that, the update also fixes various other things like remote desktop, File Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Windows Defender applications control, RDP client control, OneDrive, and more.
