As many users have considered, it was about time for the Redmond tech giant to release yet another optional update for its latest operating system.

Thus, Microsoft has just released build 22000.593, through KB5011563, as an optional C update for Windows 11.

And yes, this same update was released to the Beta Channel about two weeks ago, and although this is an optional update, it will most likely be a part of the next Patch Tuesday release.

There’s a pretty long list of fixes, so let’s get right into it and see what we’re dealing with when it comes to this latest cumulative update.

What’s new with KB5011563?

By far, the highlight of this release is that it updates an issue that might cause a Microsoft OneDrive file to lose focus after you rename it and press the Enter key.

Users that have dealt with this issue know that, when a file loses focus, you have to select it again before you can use it.

  • Addresses an issue that causes SystemSettings.exe to stop working.
  • Addresses an issue that affects searchindexer.exe and prevents Microsoft Outlook’s offline search from returning recent emails.
  • Addresses an issue that increases the startup time for Windows. This issue occurs because a UI thread in a networking API stops responding when a 5G wireless wide area network (WWAN) device is slow to wake up.
  • Addresses a memory leak in the wmipicmp.dll module that causes a lot of false alarms in the System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) datacenter monitoring system.

  • Addresses an issue that causes an “Access denied” exception for a file during a PowerShell test for AppLocker.
  • Addresses an issue that causes the Remote Desktop Service (RDS)server to become unstable when the number of signed in users exceeds 100. This prevents you from accessing published applications using RDS on Windows Server 2019.
  • Addresses an issue that returns an error message when you browse for a domain or organizational unit (OU). This issue occurs because of improper zeroing out of memory.
  • Addresses an issue that causes the Group Policy Management Console to stop working after you close it. The system logs Application Error Event ID 1000 and the error, 0xc0000005 (STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION); the failing module is GPOAdmin.dll.
