" Microsoft has released the optional KB5019275 Preview cumulative update for Windows 10 20H2, Windows 10 21H1, and Windows 10 21H2, with fourteen fixes and improvements. "

What's new in Windows 10 KB5019275​


With this update, Microsoft has introduced a new feature where the 'System' setting screen will now display Microsoft OneDrive storage alerts. Microsoft says these new alerts will only be shown when you run out of storage, allowing Windows users to purchase more.

The KB5019275 also fixes thirteen issues related to various Windows services, primarily to fix crashes, unresponsive features, or general bugs.

Of particular interest, Microsoft has added support for URL lengths of up to 8196 characters, which is much more than anyone will likely see when browsing the web.

Some of the other notable bug fixes in this release are:
  • This update addresses an issue that affects searchindexer.exe. It randomly stops you from signing in or signing out.
  • This update addresses an issue that affects conhost.exe causing it to stop responding.
  • This update addresses a problem that occurs when you open Task View. It causes the desktop to stop responding.
  • This update addresses an issue that damages memory. The issue occurs when you use particular HD audio controller hardware.
Microsoft is warning of one long-standing issue in this update: Windows installations created from offline media or ISO may have Microsoft Edge Legacy removed and replaced with the new modern Microsoft Edge.

"Devices with Windows installations created from custom offline media or custom ISO image might have Microsoft Edge Legacy removed by this update, but not automatically replaced by the new Microsoft Edge," explains the KB5019275 bulletin. "This issue is only encountered when custom offline media or ISO images are created by slipstreaming this update into the image without having first installed the standalone servicing stack update (SSU) released March 29, 2021 or later."

You can find a complete list of fixes in the KB5019275 support bulletin.
