Windows 10 KB5039211

In this fast-changing world of technology, it is very important to maintain updated software. Therefore, when Microsoft releases its Patch Tuesday updates, it’s like an early Christmas for tech lovers and IT experts.

This June has been no different. Microsoft offered a range of updates that fix vulnerabilities and add some cool features. Let’s dive into the details, shall we?

The June 2024 update, KB5039211, is important for Windows 10 users. Specifically, users on versions 21H2 and 22H2 will see changes that Microsoft has made to improve security.

This covers a wide spectrum of safety issues and protects our systems from the most recent threats. But it’s not just about security; an exciting new feature has been added to the Snipping Tool, too—making it better for people who enjoy maintaining their work processes smoothly across different devices.

You can now edit photos taken with your Android device using the Snipping Tool on Windows PC. Think about it: you take a photo using your phone, then suddenly receive an editing suggestion on your PC to use the Snipping Tool for that picture. Useful, isn’t it? Microsoft has included this integration as an element of their bigger goal to enhance the connectedness and productivity of our digital existence.

It also addresses some irritating problems that users have been facing. For example, certain apps used to show a hidden window while sharing the screen, and this issue is resolved now. Disappeared. Or the problem of the Share button on USB controllers not cooperating with the Game Bar. Solved. Oh, and the lsass.exe troubles like crashes and memory leaks? All handled.

But it’s not just about happiness and positive things. Some issues remain, and the Copilot feature, which makes desktop icons move from one monitor to another like they are dancing or not being supported by a vertically positioned taskbar, is not resolved with KB5039211 on Windows 10.

Then we have a tale with Microsoft Connected Cache node discovery along with the problem of changing your user account profile picture that gives an error message when attempted. Microsoft is on it, though, and it promises fixes in future releases.

  • New! Microsoft is rolling out the new Snipping Tool feature. The feature is available when you link your Android mobile device to your PC. When you take a photo or screenshot on your Android device, a dialog on your PC prompts you to open Snipping Tool. To turn on this experience, go to Settings > Mobile devices. Choose to allow your PC to access your mobile devices and select Manage devices. Your PC will get a Cross Device Experience Host update in Microsoft Store. You need this for the feature to work. Finally, use the Add device option to link your Android phone.
  • This update addresses an issue that displays a hidden window. Its title bar has no content and no client area. This occurs when you share your screen using certain apps.
  • This update addresses an issue that affects the Share button on USB controllers. It might not work with Game Bar.   
  • This update addresses an issue that affects lsass.exe. It stops responding. This occurs after you install the April 2024 security updates on Windows servers.
  • This update addresses an issue that affects lsass.exe. It leaks memory. This occurs during a Local Security Authority (Domain Policy) Remote Protocol (LSARPC) call.

KB5039211 is delivered automatically through Windows 10 Update, so most people don’t need to do anything. But if you prefer to be hands-on, you can manually search for updates or download the package from the Microsoft Update Catalog.

The June 2024 Patch Tuesday update shows Microsoft’s continuous effort to maintain a safe and user-friendly ecosystem. The Redmond-based tech giant managed to fix no less than 51 vulnerabilities this month.

Every update to Windows 10 makes it slightly stronger, more secure, and better connected to our everyday tech habits. Therefore, let us look forward to smoother and safer computing experiences in the future.
