Highlights

  • New! Introducing search highlights 

    Search highlights will present notable and interesting moments of what’s special about each day—like holidays, anniversaries, and other educational moments in time both globally and in your region. To see search highlights, click or tap on the search icon on your taskbar.

    For enterprise customers, search highlights will also feature the latest updates from your organization and suggest people, files, and more.

    Search highlights will roll out to Windows 11 customers over the next several weeks. We are taking a phased and measured approach. Broad availability will occur in the coming months. For group configuration information, see Group configuration: search highlights in Windows.

  • Addresses an issue that causes a domain controller to incorrectly write Key Distribution Center (KDC) event 21 in the System event log. This occurs when the KDC successfully processes a Kerberos Public Key Cryptography for Initial Authentication (PKINIT) authentication request with a self-signed certificate for key trust scenarios (Windows Hello for Business and Device Authentication).

  • Addresses an issue that prevents Bluetooth from reconnecting to some audio devices after you restart the devices.

  • Addresses an issue that causes Microsoft NTLM authentication using an external trust to fail. This issue occurs when a domain controller that contains the January 11, 2022 or later Windows update services the authentication request, is not in a root domain, and does not hold the Global Catalog role. The affected operations might log the following errors:

    • The security database has not been started.

    • The domain was in the wrong state to perform the security operation.

    • 0xc00000dd (STATUS_INVALID_DOMAIN_STATE).

  • Addresses an issue in which malformed XML inputs might cause an error in DeviceEnroller.exe. This prevents CSPs from being delivered to the device until you restart the device or correct the XML.

  • Addresses an issue that might cause Windows 11 (original release) to stop working when you install an application and there is no network connectivity.

  • Updates the Start menu to display Windows PowerShell when you right-click (Win + X) the Start button after you have uninstalled Windows Terminal.

  • Changes the name of the Your Phone app to Phone Link on the Settings page.

  • Addresses an issue that causes the Microsoft Surface Dial customization settings page to stop working.

  • Addresses a known issue that might prevent you from using the Wi-Fi hotspot feature. When attempting to use the hotspot feature, the host device might lose the connection to the internet after a client device connects.

Windows 11 servicing stack update - 22000.761

This update makes quality improvements to the servicing stack, which is the component that installs Windows updates. Servicing stack updates (SSU) ensure that you have a robust and reliable servicing stack so that your devices can receive and install Microsoft updates. 

Known issues in this update

Applies to

Symptom

Workaround

IT admins

After installing this update, some .NET Framework 3.5 apps might have issues or might fail to open. Affected apps are using certain optional components in .NET Framework 3.5, such as Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) and Windows Workflow (WWF) components.

This issue should be resolved automatically via a Troubleshooter on affected unmanaged devices. If your device is managed by an IT department or with enterprise management tools, you might not get the troubleshooter automatically and might require the below workaround to resolve the issue. For more information on this troubleshooter, please see Windows Update Troubleshooter for repairing .NET Framework components.

If you do not automatically receive the troubleshooter, you can mitigate this issue by re-enabling .NET Framework 3.5 and the Windows Communication Foundation in Windows Features. For instructions, please see Enable the .NET Framework 3.5 in Control Panel. Advanced users or IT admins can do this programmatically using an elevated Command Prompt (run as administrator) and running the following commands:

dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:netfx3 /all
dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:WCF-HTTP-Activation
dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:WCF-NonHTTP-Activation

IT admins

After installing this update, IE mode tabs in Microsoft Edge might stop responding when a site displays a modal dialog box. A modal dialog box is a form or dialog box that requires the user to respond before continuing or interacting with other portions of the webpage or app.

Developer Note Sites affected by this issue call window.focus.

This issue is resolved using Known Issue Rollback (KIR). Please note that it might take up to 24 hours for the resolution to propagate automatically to consumer devices and non-managed business devices. Restarting your Windows device might help the resolution apply to your device faster. For enterprise-managed devices that have installed an affected update and encountered this issue can resolve it by installing and configuring the special Group Policy listed below. For information on deploying and configuring these special Group Policy, please see How to use Group Policy to deploy a Known Issue Rollback.

Important You will need to install and configure the Group Policy for your version of Windows to resolve this issue.

IT admins

After installing updates released June 14, 2022, or later, PowerShell Desired State Configuration (DSC) using an encrypted the PSCredential property might fail when decrypting the credentials on the target node. This failure will result in a password related error message, similar to, “The password supplied to the Desired State Configuration resource <resource name> is not valid. The password cannot be null or empty.”

Note Environments which use non-encrypted PSCredential properties will not experience the issue.

DSC is a management platform in PowerShell that enables administrators to manage IT and development infrastructure with configuration as code. This issue is not likely to be experienced by home users of Windows.

This issue is addressed in KB5015814.

All users

After installing this update, we have received reports that a small number of devices might be unable to open the Start menu. On affected devices, clicking or selecting the Start button or using the Windows key on your keyboard might have no effect.

This issue is resolved using Known Issue Rollback (KIR). Please note that it might take up to 24 hours for the resolution to propagate automatically to consumer devices and non-managed business devices. Restarting your Windows device might help the resolution apply to your device faster. For enterprise-managed devices that have installed an affected update and encountered this issue can resolve it by installing and configuring a special Group Policy. The special Group Policy can be found in Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > KB5014668 220721_04201 Known Issue Rollback > Windows 11 (original release). For information on deploying and configuring these special Group Policy, seeHow to use Group Policy to deploy a Known Issue Rollback.

If you want to remove the LCU

To remove the LCU after installing the combined SSU and LCU package, use the DISM/Remove-Package command line option with the LCU package name as the argument. You can find the package name by using this command: DISM /online /get-packages.
