July Patch update for windows 10 may 2020 and older versions

In this month’s Patch Tuesday, Microsoft has released updates for all supported versions of Windows 10. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the company paused the optional updates, and Windows 10 versions get the updates only on Patch Tuesday.

So, if you are running the latest version of Windows 10, May 2020 update, then you will get the update KB4565503 build 19041.388, which you could download via Windows Update option in the Settings. Below are the highlights and fixes included in KB4565503:

Highlights

  • Improves security in the Microsoft Store.
  • Updates to improve security when using input devices (such as a mouse, keyboard, or stylus).
  • Updates to improve security when Windows performs basic operations.
  • Updates for storing and managing files.
  • Updates an issue that might cause certain games and applications to have visual distortion when resizing in windowed mode or switching from full screen to window mode. 
  • Updates to improve security when using Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge Legacy.
  • Updates an issue that might prevent some applications from printing documents that contain graphics or large files.
  • Updates an issue that might prevent you from connecting to OneDrive using the OneDrive app.

Fixes

  • Addresses an issue in certain apps that use the ImeMode property to control Input Method Editor (IME) mode in Windows 10, version 2004 (the May 2020 Update). For example, this issue prevents input mode from automatically switching to Kanji or Hiragana.
  • Addresses an issue that might prevent you from using PowerShell to change the system locale on Server Core platforms.
  • Addresses an issue that might cause certain games and applications to have visual distortion when resizing in windowed mode or switching from full screen to window mode.

  • Addresses an issue that might prevent some applications from printing documents that contain graphics or large files after installing Windows Updates released June 9, 2020.
  • Addresses an issue that might prevent you from connecting to OneDrive using the OneDrive app. This issue occurs on some older devices or on devices that have older apps, which use legacy file system filter drivers. As a result, this might prevent these devices from downloading new files or opening previously synced or downloaded files.
