Microsoft has released the optional KB5011543 Preview cumulative update for Windows 10 20H2, Windows 10 21H1, and Windows 10 21H2.

This update includes numerous bug fixes and a new "Search highlights" feature for the Windows 10 Start Menu.

The KB5011543 cumulative update preview is part of Microsoft's March 2022 monthly "C" update, allowing admins to test upcoming fixes to be released in the April 2022 Patch Tuesday.
Unlike Patch Tuesday updates, the "C" preview updates are optional and do not include any security updates. However, If you run a Windows Insider build, the preview update will be installed automatically.
"Search highlights will present notable and interesting moments of what’s special about each day—like holidays, anniversaries, and other educational moments in time both globally and in your region," Microsoft explains in the KB5011543 release notes. "To see more details at a glance, hover, click, or tap on the illustration in the search box."

Instead of notable events for the day, enterprise customers will see information about the latest news from your organization, including suggested people and files.
