Microsoft has released the Windows 10 KB5018410 and KB5018419 cumulative updates for versions 21H2, version 21H1, version 20H2, and 1809 to fix security vulnerabilities and resolve twenty bugs and performance issues.

This update is not available for Windows 10 1909 or Windows 10 2004.

This Windows 10 cumulative update is mandatory and will automatically be installed by Windows Update during your servicing window. However, Windows users can manually install the updates by going to Settings, clicking on Windows Update, and selecting 'Check for Updates.

What's new in Windows 10 Build 19044.2130​

After installing this update, Windows 10 20H2 will be updated to build 19042.2130, Windows 10 21H1 will be updated to build 19043.2130, and Windows 10 21H2 will be updated to build 19044.2130.

After this update, you can now search for the controls for news and interests on the taskbar and modify them using the Settings app. To change your settings, navigate to Settings > Personalization > Taskbar > News and interests.

Otherwise,right-click the taskbar and select Taskbar settings. Addtionally, all taskbar orientations now support news and interests. A top, left, or right taskbar now has features and settings much like the horizontal taskbar.

Here's a list of all bug fixes:
  • Addresses an issue that requires you to reinstall an app if you did not get the app from the Microsoft Store. This issue occurs after you upgrade to Windows 10 or a newer OS.
  • Addresses a rare error that leads to a blue screen. This occurs after you change the display mode while you are using more than one display.
  • Addresses an issue that forces the IE mode tabs in a session to reload.
  • Addresses an issue that affects IE mode after you open a PDF file. When you try to open a different page using the same browser window, the page will not open in that browser window.
  • Addresses an issue that affects the Microsoft Japanese IME when it is active and the IME mode is on. When you use the numeric keypad to insert a dash (-) character, the IME inserts the wrong one.
  • Addresses an issue that affects the rendering of the search box. It does not render properly if you sign in using Tablet mode.
  • Addresses a known issue that affects daylight saving time in Chile. This issue might affect the time and dates used for meetings, apps, tasks, services, transactions, and more.
Last but not the least, the update contains miscellaneous security improvements to internal OS functionality, as per Microsoft's security documentation.
