As the first cumulative update for the month of May, the KB5026372 update is out with new features and improvements. Here is the direct link to download KB5026372 offline installer.
The new feature is a toggle in the Settings > Windows Update page which allows you to tell Microsoft to put your device in a priority list for non-security and enhancement updates. On non-managed devices, this toggle is turned on by default while it is turned off for managed devices. As you can tell, this is not something that is big but helpful if you want to install Windows Updates as soon as they are available.
Additionally, this update also includes a few enhancements that are part of the previous optional update. It includes but is not limited to new animations for some of the icons on the Widgets taskbar button.
Along with the regular improvements and enhancements, this update also contains minor security fixes.
Being a mandatory update, the KB5026372 update will be installed automatically. If not, you can go to the Settings > Windows Update page and click the Check for Updates button. Alternatively, use the link below to download KB5026372 offline installer.

- This update addresses security issues for your Windows operating system.
- This update affects the Kernel-mode Hardware-enforced Stack Protection security feature. The update adds more drivers to the database of drivers that are not compatible with it. A device uses this database when you enable this security feature in the Windows Security UI and it loads the drivers.
- This update addresses a race condition in Windows Local Administrator Password Solution (LAPS). The Local Security Authority Subsystem Service (LSASS) might stop responding. This occurs when the system processes multiple local account operations at the same time. The access violation error code is 0xc0000005.
That is it.
