Microsoft Releases KB5003214 for Windows 10 Version 20H2 Preview

Microsoft has released a brand new preview build for Windows Insiders in the Release Preview channel, with the company explaining that update KB5003214 is specifically targeted at users running Windows 10 version 20H2 preview builds.

This new update brings the OS build to 19042.1023, and merely as expected, it’s specifically centered on non-security improvements to help polish the experience with Windows 10.

For instance, Microsoft says this update resolves a problem making it impossible to spread out phone apps pinned towards the taskbar, as well as a problem affecting PWAs and causing the icons to appear blank when users manually pin these to the taskbar.

There’s also bug fixes targeted at the desktop, as Microsoft states that in some cases, items deleted in the desktop still turned up, therefore the company says installing this update resolves everything once and for all for insiders.

Enterprise improvements

Microsoft has also included several improvements specifically targeted at business users and enterprises, together with a bug fix specifically aimed at devices using MDM policies.

“We fixed an issue with devices which were configured using mobile device management (MDM) RestrictedGroups, LocalUsersAndGroups, or UserRights policies. These units incorrectly still receive the policy after you use MDM to get rid of the configuration profile which has the policy. Consequently, users of the affected devices may have incorrect group memberships and UserRights assignments or other symptoms. This problem occurs after installing Windows updates from October 29, 2020 and then,” the company explains.

You’ll find the full changelog within the box after the jump, and when you’re area of the Release Preview channel of the Windows Insider program and running version 20H2 preview builds, you’ll find the brand new release in Windows Update where you can install it right away.
