What’s new in Windows 11 KB5033375

The latest Windows 11 KB5033375 cumulative update (OS Build 22631.2861) contains miscellaneous security improvements to internal OS functionality.

Following the latest Windows 11 update, Microsoft has introduced several enhancements and changes. Notably, the Copilot window will now open on the display where the taskbar shortcut was clicked. Additionally, when users press the Alt + Tab, the Copilot window will appear alongside other app thumbnails. However, these new behaviors will initially roll out to a limited subset of users.

Another change involves Microsoft account-related notifications in the Start Menu and Settings app for Windows 11 users. Users can manage these notifications, which may be considered distracting, by navigating to Settings > Privacy & security > General.

Furthermore, Windows Spotlight is set to become the default background in the coming weeks, although this change may occur when the background is set to an inbox Windows image.

This update also focuses on improving the speed at which Copilot in Windows (in preview) opens from the taskbar. It addresses an issue with the Copilot icon on the taskbar not showing as active when Copilot in Windows is open.

Additionally, the update tackles problems with IE mode, preventing it from stopping responding when the left arrow key is pressed in an empty text box with caret browsing on. Another issue addressed is the unresponsiveness of IE mode when multiple tabs are open.

Dynamic Lighting experiences an update, reducing the power consumption on the device.

However, Microsoft is actively investigating known issues post-update, including difficulties with the rendering of the color font format for COLRv1 and automatic movement of desktop icons between monitors. Users are encouraged to stay informed about updates and patches to address these ongoing concerns.

Users running the original version of Windows 11 are receiving a new update today (KB5033369), which focuses on security improvements rather than introducing new features.
