Microsoft releases Windows 10 build 19043.1110, 19042.1110 – here’s what’s new

Today is the second Tuesday of the month, making it Patch Tuesday. That means that all supported versions of Windows are getting updated today. For consumers, that includes Windows 10 versions 21H1, 20H2, and 2004. To make things easy, they all get the same update.

There’s no update for the Windows 11 preview though, despite Microsoft using the cumulative update method for servicing. Presumably, that will arrive later on this week.

For consumers on Windows 10 versions 21H1, 20H2, or 2004, you’re going to get KB5004237, bringing the build number to 19043.1110, 19042.1110, or 19041.1110, respectively. You can manually download it here, and these are the highlights:
