Also, circling back to Windows 10, keep in mind that this is the last month in which you can buy an official Windows 10 license from Microsoft.

The company stated that it will stop selling them after January 2023, which means you can only get licensed copies from retailers that still have them in stock.

Now, let’s finally have a look at this new update, KB5019275 for Windows 10, and what it brings to the table.
