Microsoft Rolls Out Update KB5025305 for Windows 11

Listen to the Podcast:

Windows 11 KB5025305 update for Windows 11 version 22H2 is now available with a new option that will allow users to prioritize updates not related to security and operating system features.

After you install the Windows 11 KB5025305 update, you will be able to prioritize the installation of the latest available updates.

Major Changes and New Features in Windows 11 KB5025305

To set your device to install non-security updates as soon as possible, go to Start -> Settings -> Windows Update and enable the “Get the latest updates as soon as they’re available” setting.

For business customers, on devices managed by Windows Update for Business, or WSUS, the toggle is disabled by default. The latest changes will be controlled and implemented by the IT administrators of their organizations.

It is worth mentioning that Windows 11 KB5025305 is a monthly “C” update that allows Windows users to test fixes and improvements, which will be rolled out to all customers with Patch Tuesday in May 2023.

But unlike Patch Tuesday, these updates are not mandatory as they do not contain security fixes. Therefore, you will have to install it manually by going to Settings -> Windows Update -> Check for Updates.

You can also manually download and install the update from the Microsoft Update Catalog.

But What’s New?

Windows 11 KB5025305 comes with 19 additional fixes and improvements; some of the most notable ones are highlighted below:

  • This update fixes an issue that affects Microsoft Edge in IE mode. Popups open in the background instead of the foreground.
  • This update changes the firewall settings. You can now configure the application pool rules.
  • This update addresses an issue that affects the Local Security Authority Subsystem Service (LSASS) process. It may stop responding. Due to this, the machine reboots. The error is 0xc0000005 (STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION).
  • This update addresses an issue that affects Windows Defender Application Control (WDAC)-signed policies. They do not apply to the secure kernel. This occurs when you enable Secure Boot.
  • This update fixes an issue that affects the Resilient File System (ReFS). A stop error occurs that prevents the operating system from starting correctly.

These are all the new features that are implemented in the new Windows 11 update, and although it is not mandatory, it is recommended to install it on your device.
