After a long break, Microsoft just released the first September 2023 patch update KB5030219 for all Windows 11 systems. This is a security update. However, along with the security fixes, this update also contains improvements and fixes of the previous update KB5029351. That means this is not a standalone update and if you haven’t installed the previous update, this update will automatically install it for you. This update mainly fixes the authentication security issue caused by the KB5020276 update where using a smart card to join or rejoin an active directory computer fails. In addition to that, KB5030219 also removes a blank menu item from the Sticky Keys menu.
As I said earlier, if you haven’t installed KB5029351, KB5030219 will automatically install all the improvements and fixes of that update. As always, you can install the update by opening the Settings app and clicking on the Check for Update button on the Windows Update page. Alternatively, download the KB5030219 offline installer with like provided below. Once downloaded, double-click on the installer file and follow the on-screen instructions.
