Microsoft has released a new cumulative update for Windows 11 v21H2 users. This update includes various bug fixes and improvements.
One notable addition is the advanced auto-learning feature for facial recognition. Other issues addressed include problems with Color filter settings, IE mode, hyperlinks in Excel, video playback in a certain streaming app, incomplete cleanup in Appx State Repository, Z-order of maximized windows, file names in AppV, and conflicts with Microsoft Edge policies. Additionally, the update addresses an issue with Local Security Authority Subsystem Service (LSASS), which might stop responding after running Sysprep on a domain-joined machine.
The update is aimed at improving user experience and ensuring smooth functionality of the Windows 11 operating system. Windows 11 users are advised to download and install the update to ensure their system is up-to-date and secure.
That being said, being a general cumulative update, you might want to wait a bit if you faced issues with updates earlier.
