Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB5001618 Released for Insiders

Microsoft has released a brand new Windows 10 cumulative update for Windows insiders, which time, it is targeted at users signed up for the Dev channel.

Worth knowing in the very beginning, however, is that cumulative update KB5001618 doesn’t include any new feature, even though it offers the OS build number to 21337.1010, it’s only designed to help Microsoft “test our servicing pipeline.”

So in other words, Microsoft just wants to make sure servicing Windows via Windows Update is working as planned, so while you’re still recommended to obtain this update, don’t expect any change after the installation.

However, Windows 10 build 21337 includes several important improvements, including support for changing the wallpaper of every virtual desktop.

“Virtual Desktops assist you to cognitively separate different tasks on your PC, including helping to create work-life separation. They may be swapped into view, allowing you to shift your projects in one desktop to a different. Rather than juggling multiple windows, you are able to switch between Virtual Desktops to multitask,” Microsoft explained a few days ago when it released this new build.

Another essential change concerns gaming, as Microsoft has finally brought Auto HDR to PCs with this particular new build. However, it’s vital that you bear in mind case a preview for the time being, with Microsoft promising further refinements within the coming builds.

“Today we’re excited to create you a preview of Auto HDR for your PC gaming experience and we’re searching for your help to check it out. When enabled in your HDR capable gaming PC, you will automatically get awesome HDR visuals with an additional 1000+ DirectX 11 and DirectX 12 games!” the organization said when the full build went live.

You can download the brand new cumulative update if you’re part of the Insider program from Windows Update.
