Windows 10 22H2 Build 19045.4353 brings  account-related notifications

Microsoft released Windows 10 22H2 Build 19045.4353 (KB5036979) to the Release Preview Channel for Windows Insiders using version 22H2 on April 15, 2024.

With this update, you can see account-related notifications for Microsoft accounts under Settings> Home section.

A Microsoft account connects Windows to Microsoft apps, backs up all your data, helps you manage your subscriptions, and more. With the new feature, you will get updates like account status, security information, and recent activity related to your account security.

Furthermore, you will get updates related to your Microsoft subscriptions, like OneDrive storage or Microsoft 365. You will also get alerts about security settings and advice on enabling two-factor authentication or changing your password to improve the security of your account.

You will see the notifications in two places: the Start menu and Settings>Home.

If you want to disable notifications, go to Settings, then Privacy & Security>General. Under Notifications, look for the option related to Microsoft account notifications and disable it.

Here are the improvements and fixes introduced via this build:

  • This update addresses an issue that affects app licensing. Because of this, Copilot in Windows (in preview) does not work as you expect.

  • This update addresses a race condition that might stop a machine from starting up. This occurs when you set up a bootloader to start up multiple OSes.
