Bug Fixes

Microsoft has fixed the following of the existing bugs with this new Windows 10 update:

  • The lsass.exe process stopped responding after installing the April 2024 security updates on the Windows server PC. It also had a memory leak issue that occurred during a Local Security Authority (Domain Policy) Remote Protocol (LSARPC) call. Both these issues are long gone.
  • A hidden window appeared while using screen share apps. It didn’t have any title and was intractable.
  • The share button on USB controllers wasn’t working with the Game Bar.

Still, there are a few issues that haven’t been patched yet.

Known issues in KB5039211

Copilot is still causing problems in Windows 10. It moves icons between displays in a multi-monitor setup, causing problems. The app also doesn’t work when you use the Taskbar in the vertical orientation.

Copilot will be unavailable if you try to use it in any of the above scenarios.

The Profile picture bug still lingers and produces an error code 0x80070520 when you try to change it. Often, the change is successful, and the error incorrectly pops up.

There is also an issue with DHCP Option 235, which has a temporary workaround. Check the official document to learn about it. Microsoft is still working to fix the other bugs listed above.
