- Addresses an issue that affects the Title attribute in Microsoft Ege IE mode.
- Addresses an issue that might cause video subtitles to be partially cut off.
- Addresses an issue that incorrectly aligns video subtitles.
- Addresses an issue that causes Kerberos authentication to fail, and the error is “0xc0030009 (RPC_NT_NULL_REF_POINTER)”. This occurs when a client machine attempts to use the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) to connect to another machine while Remote Credential Guard is enabled.
- Addresses an issue that causes Windows to go into BitLocker recovery after a servicing update.
- Adds improvements for servicing the Secure Boot component of Windows.
