Microsoft reveals more fixes for Win 11, November update for Win 10 • The Register
Microsoft has released a version of Windows 11 that it says fixes performance issues that the new operating system places on some systems.
by Redmond announcement of OS Build 2200.282 lists over 60 “improvements and fixes” in addition to 13 lucky “highlights”.
One of these highlights is described as resolving “an issue that causes some applications to run slower than usual after upgrading to Windows 11 (original version).”
Another fixes an issue that could cause Bluetooth mice and keyboards to “respond slower than expected.” A third “improves the estimation of the waiting time before using your device after restarting”.
Some of the improvements and fixes offer more consistent pricing, including “an L3 caching issue that could affect the performance of some applications on devices with AMD Ryzen processors after upgrading to Windows 11 (original version) ) “.
AMD users were rightly rather upset to be singled out, and even more upset that their concerns were not addressed in the first set of Win 11 fixes released last week.
Another fix prevents PowerShell from eating a living PC by creating an infinite number of child directories. “This problem occurs when you use the PowerShell Move-Item command to move a directory to one of its children. As a result, the volume fills up and the system stops responding, ”Microsoft explained.

Distorted fonts for Asian alphabets clarified, Microsoft Office restored after Windows Defender Exploit Protection prevented it from running “on machines with certain processors” and an issue that could prevent it from running The successful installation of the printer with Internet Printing Protocol has been erased.
Microsoft’s Windows teams seem rather busy. On the same day the new Windows 11 patches were released, the IT giant also announced the anything but chosen cut of Windows 10 that it will use for the Windows 10 November 2021 update.
“We believe version 19044.1288 is the final version of the November 2021 update”, wrote Brandon LeBlanc, Senior Manager, Windows Insider Program.
Insiders can get their hands on the November Update in the Release Preview Channel on Windows 10 through Microsoft’s “seeker” experience in Windows Update.
This means that Insiders currently running Windows 10, version 21H1 (or lower) in the version preview channel will need to go to Settings> Update & Security> Windows Update and choose to download and install Windows 10, version 21H2, ”explained LeBlanc.
Microsoft previously announced a modest set of additions to Windows 10 in this update, with Wi-Fi security improvements and GPU compute support in the lead in Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) and Azure environments. IoT Edge for Linux on Windows (EFLOW).
Another major feature that previously promised software would show up in the update – a Windows Hello for Business deployment method called “cloud trust” – has been removed from the release.
LeBlanc described it as “still under development” and is now expected to appear “in a future monthly update to the November 2021 update.”
We will provide more information as this feature gets closer to availability. Information on exactly when the 21H2 update will make its mainstream debut can also be found in the “coming-real-soon-now-we-promise” bucket. ®
