Microsoft published a new preview update for Windows 10 that is addressing several hangs and other issues. The update is available publicly but does not get installed automatically. Administrators need to seek it in Windows Update to install it on systems.

Is This the End of the Windows 10 Era

Main reasons for installing a preview update are to address issues that are experienced currently and to test new features before the final version of the update is released along with security updates on the February 2023 Patch Tuesday.

The official changelogis available here.

Windows 10 users may select Start > Settings > Windows Update and on the page that opens "check for updates" to run a manual update check. Windows Update should return KB5019275  at this point so that it can be installed on the device.

The preview update introduces one new feature that is already available on Windows 11. Microsoft account users see OneDrive storage alerts now on the Systems page of the Settings app.

As far as hangs are concerned, it fixes the following:

  • An unspecified issue affecting conhost.exe that prevents it from responding.
  • Applications may stop responding when mouse and keyboard are used at the same time when the Input Method Editor is active.
  • The desktop may stop responding when Task View is opened on the system.

KB5019275 makes several other changes. Notable are fixes for two Resilient File System (ReFS) issues that caused a "nonpaged pool leak" and high nonpaged pool data, which depleted system memory.

Two additional fixes address sign-in and sign-out issues. The first addresses an issue in the Search Indexer that prevented ussers from singing-in or signing-out; the second issue affected cached Fast Identity Online 2.0 (FIDO2) authentication data and caused the first sign-in to fail.

The update has no new known issues. All of its fixes will be included in the next cumulative update for Windows 10, which will be released on February 14, 2023. Most Windows administrators may want to skip the update as it is a beta release effectively.

Now You: do you install preview updates?

    Microsoft :

    NEW 1/19/23

    IMPORTANT After March 2023, there are no more optional, non-security preview releases for the supported editions of Windows 10, version 20H2 and Windows 10, version 21H2. Only cumulative monthly security updates (known as the “B” or Update Tuesday release) will continue for these versions. Windows 10, version 22H2 will continue to receive security and optional releases.

      Pure gold. The most powerful reasons to stay with W10 till 2025 and probably one year more at least.

        I’m sorry I don’t understand how not having optional releases of something is “pure gold” – if they would have been optional previews, just… don’t get them? If anything the news makes it sounds that all of the preview releases going into the future will be non-optional.

    Only when absolutely necessary if, for example, my laptop/desktop can no longer handle the basics in daily use.

    Also only if the most important applications no longer work. Think for example of LibreOffice, Thunderbird or Mozilla Firefox.
