Windows 11 update KB5025305 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 installing Windows 11 update KB5025305, you will be able to prioritize installing the latest available updates.
Important 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 roll 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. So you will need 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 includes 19 additional fixes and improvements; some of the most notable are highlighted below:
- This update fixes an issue that affects Microsoft Edge in IE mode. Popups open in the background instead of in 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. You can stop responding. Due to this, the machine reboots. The error is 0xc0000005 (STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION).
- This update addresses an issue that affects policies signed by Windows Defender Application Control (WDAC). They do not apply to the secure kernel. This occurs when you enable Secure Boot.
- This update fixes an issue that affects 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.
