Patch Tuesday update improves notifications on Windows 11

Happy Tuesday Patch! As usual, Microsoft just released the monthly series of security updates for all shipped and supported versions of Windows today. On Windows 11 this month, the patch brings some tweaks for notifications, and on Windows 10, security tweaks. Here’s what you need to know.

If you are using Windows 11, you will see KB5012592 (OS Build 22000.613) in Windows Update. Microsoft’s official changelog mentions that this release updates Windows security, an integral part of operating system functionality, as documented here. Yet, there is also a video on the changelog page that mentions changes to notifications in Windows 11.

According to this video, it is now possible to display up to four different toast notifications simultaneously, three high priority and one normal notification. There is also a fix for OneDrive, where files can lose focus. The latest new feature covers widgets, where you can now find the appropriate settings option when searching in the corresponding settings. All of these features were in the Windows 11 March Preview Update.

On Windows 10 version 21H2 and version 21H1, you will see KB5012599. This upgrades the operating system to versions 19042.1645, 19043.1645, and 19044.1645. Yet unlike Windows 11, this only brings security fixes. As always, you should automatically see these updates in Windows Update as a download. Otherwise, you can download it manually through the Microsoft Update Catalog.
