Microsoft released KB5017380 (OS Builds 19042.2075, 19043.2075, and 19044.2075) optional "C" release preview cumulative updates with non-security improvements and fixes.

The following are the highlighted changes included in the update:

  • New! All taskbar orientations now support news and interests. A top, left, or right taskbar now has features and settings much like the horizontal taskbar.
  • 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.
