Fixes and improvements in KB5017308
Since Microsoft has already announced Windows 10 will be discontinued by 2025, we don’t expect new features to be launched for Windows 10. In line with this philosophy, only security issues have been addressed for the Operating System.
If you want to enjoy new feature releases, you should probably get Windows 11 for yourself.
If you have installed Windows 10 using a custom installation media, installing KB5017308 will remove Microsoft Edge. This update might not automatically install the new Chromium Edge. You will need to download and install Edge manually.
After installing KB5017308, XPS Viewer may stop opening XPS documents. Instead, XPS Viewer will start taking large amounts of RAM if not closed manually.
Possible incorrect display time and date if you are in Chile. DST settings were officially changed, from 4th September to 10th September. If Windows doesn’t change the time automatically, you will need to update it manually. Otherwise, there will be a time difference of 60 minutes from Chile’s official time.
