This update is all about fixing things to make sure Windows 11 runs smoothly for everyone.

First off, the update fixes a problem that was causing the search bar in the Start menu to freeze up for some people. Now, it should work like it’s supposed to. It also makes video calls better, so they won’t cut out or have issues like before.

If your computer was getting stuck and not responding, especially after adding new printer software, this update should help with that. It also fixes a small but annoying issue where a message box in the File Explorer wouldn’t close properly.

For anyone using Bluetooth headphones, especially the kind that use low energy, this update should stop them from losing sound when you’re listening to music. It also fixes the problem where the sound wouldn’t play through the computer during a Bluetooth phone call.

There’s also good news if you use 7-Zip files. Before, some of these files looked empty when they weren’t. Now, they’ll show up correctly. And, the update fixes a problem with Wi-Fi security settings not showing up right for some people.

Here’s a list of all other fixes in Windows 11 KB5034765:

  • For those who like to keep their computer’s time zone accurate, this update fixes a bug that was messing with that. It also makes sure your computer doesn’t crash when waking up from sleep mode.
  • Text should look better in some apps thanks to a fix for the OpenType font driver, and emojis will look more 3D and colorful with improvements to how they’re displayed.
  • The update also fixes some issues with Windows Management Instrumentation, which helps with managing devices and their settings. This is especially good news for businesses using Microsoft Intune to manage their computers.

For anyone using BitLocker to keep their data safe, the update makes sure that management services like Intune get the right information to keep everything secure. It also helps with setting up internet for mobile devices and makes sure security chips in computers start up right.

Microsoft has also updated its list of drivers that could be risky, helping to keep your computer safe from attacks. And for computers that start up securely, there’s a new certificate that makes sure everything’s up to date.
