Microsoft says it fixed an issue that was causing some Windows 11 (opens in new tab) Users may experience File Explorer crashes in certain scenarios.
In its latest optional cumulative preview update KB5015882, the Redmond-based giant has made a total of 20 improvements to its latest operating system.
Among them are two that fix File Explorer crashes where the program stops working when users press the play and pause buttons on some devices’ keyboards; and the other where the program stops working when the user invokes the context menu of the Start menu (Win+X) while an external monitor is connected to its endpoint.
Installing the patch
The preview update should not be confused with the cumulative updates that will be rolled out as part of the patch day. This update is optional and does not fix vulnerabilities and other cybersecurity issues. Instead, it just brings improvements and usability improvements. Additionally, it’s in preview mode, which means most users won’t get it until next month (August in this particular case).
To prompt the operating system to install this update, users should navigate settings > windows update and select “Check for updates”. If optional updates are available, users are prompted to download and install them.
Alongside these two updates, Microsoft has also introduced an option to receive urgent notifications even when Focus Assist is enabled, as well as an option to update Windows 11 to the latest version on first boot.
