Microsoft just released a new cumulative update for Windows 10, though this time around it’s a preview from the next Patch Tuesday rollout for version 1909.
The brand new update, which lands as KB5003212, can be downloaded either from the Microsoft Update Catalog or by simply checking for updates manually in Windows Update. It won’t be pushed to devices automatically via Windows Update.
Windows 10 cumulative update KB5003212 is packed with fixes, including for any bug that stops users from receiving geographic location information.
Furthermore, Microsoft says this update resolves an issue impacting the phone call muting option when transferring a call, whilst fixing the glitch preventing an impression device from being employed as a serial mouse.
No treatment for Microsoft 365 apps
While the changelog is pretty huge, and you can check it out in the box at the end of the content, there’s one highly anticipated fix that’s missing from this.
Microsoft hasn’t yet corrected an insect that triggers Microsoft 365 apps to crash after installing the previous cumulative update, so there’s a chance users running Windows 10 version 1909 wouldn’t get a fix included in the June Patch Tuesday.
“After installing this update and restarting your device, you might be unable to sign into some Microsoft 365 desktop client apps such as Microsoft Teams, OneDrive for Business and Microsoft Outlook. You might also receive an 80080300 error or “We encountered an issue. Reconnecting…” when attemping to authenticate or sign into Teams,” Microsoft explains concerning the bug, adding that an investigation is under way and a full fix should land in an upcoming update.
For the time being, you skill is just restart your device because, for whatever reason, Microsoft 365 apps should then be back ready to go. If this doesn’t make any difference, just stick with the net versions of the Microsoft 365 apps until a full fix lands.
