For those of you that haven’t opened their Windows Update menu on their Windows 10 PC, you should know that Microsoft just released the July Patch Tuesday updates.

These are monthly updates that come out every second Tuesday of every month, and they contain major bugfixes, new tools that enrich the OS, as well as new security features.

Each major version of Windows 10 receives these updates, ranging from Windows 10 v1507 all the way to the lastest, Windows 10 v2004.

Of course, each version has its own cumulative update, as they are not the same, and some of these cumulative updates stand out from all the others because of the features that they bring new, or because they finally fix a major flaw that everyone has been reporting.

Such would be the case with KB4565503, the cumulative update of Windows 10 v2004.

IME mode, PowerShell, visual distortions and OneDrive get fixed

According to the official Microsoft website, the cumulative update for Windows 10 v2004 brings several new fixes that are not present in the other cumulative updates, namely:

It fixes an issue in certain apps that use the ImeMode property to control Input Method Editor (IME) mode in Windows 10. This feature is currently only available for Windows 10 v2004, aka the May 2020 Update.

More so, it comes and repairs an issue some users have been having that didn’t allow users to use PowerShell to change the system locale on Server Core platforms.

One silver lining also comes to gamers, since KB4565503 deals with a bug where certain games and applications would have visual distortion when resizing in windowed mode or switching from full screen to window mode.

As for Microsoft Apps, this cumulative update focuses on OneDrive, more precisely, it handles an issue that prevented users from connecting to OneDrive using the OneDrive app.

That’s pretty much everything there is to know about KB4565503.  Stay tuned on our website since we update our articles as more and more interesting details are discovered regarding every cumulative update.
