Windows 11 KB5035853 Released With Partial Moment 5 Features

Microsoft has rolled out the cumulative security update KB5035853 which applies to Windows 11 23H2 and 22H2. This update is part of the Patch Tuesday releases published every second Tuesday of the month for the supported Windows versions.

This is a mandatory security update, which means that it will automatically install in the background unless you explicitly block it. After installing this update, the operating system’s build is upgraded to 22631.3296 for v23H2, and 22621.3296 for v22H2.

KB5035853 introduces “Moment 5” the features that have been anticipated for a while now. Moment updates are a way for Microsoft to roll out new features to the end users without having to wait for the annual feature update. However, the expected Moment 5 updates rolled out for the Insiders (KB5034848) introduced many new features, whereas the current rollout only introduced a few major features with several fixes and improvements.

KB5035853 also addresses a known issue that caused the error code “0x800F0922” when installing Windows updates, alongside other fixes and improvements that were rolled out with the Preview (Type D) Update KB5034848 in late February 2024. Moreover, this update also makes Windows 11 DMA-compliant where EU users can uninstall Microsoft Edge, Bing, OneDrive, and others.

Since this is a security update, it addresses a total of 61 security vulnerabilities, out of which 2 are deemed of critical importance, and addresses Denial of Service and Remote Code Execution vulnerabilities for the Hyper-V hypervisor.

What’s new in KB5035853

As mentioned above, KB5035853 introduces the same features and fixes as KB5034848 released last month as an optional update, except for one major fix.

KB5035853 addresses the known issue of experiencing the error code “0x800F0922” when installing Windows updates. This issue started occurring with KB5034765, and those who encountered this error also saw the following error message:

“Something didn’t go as planned. No need to worry – undoing changes. Please keep your computer on

At the time, Microsoft provided a temporary fix, which was deleting the “C:\$WinREAgent” directory before installing the update. With KB5035853, the issue has been resolved completely.

Moreover, the following list of new features and improvements have also been introduced with this release.

Edit mobile screenshots with Snipping Tool

Microsoft has made two significant changes relating to the Phone Link app. One, the “Phone Link” settings page has been renamed to “Mobile devices“, which you can find at Settings > Bluetooth & devices > Mobile devices.

Secondly, if your phone and Windows device are now linked, and you capture a screenshot on the phone, you will instantly receive a notification on the computer to edit the captured screenshot using the snipping tool.

Support for USB4 v2

Microsoft has also included the support for USB 80GBps, or USB4 v2, to Windows 11.

USB 80Gbps, otherwise known as USB4 Version 2.0, or USB4 Gen 4, is a new and latest standard of USB that allows transfer speeds of up to, well, a whopping 80 Gigabits per second.

Previously, the fastest USB speed offered by USB4 was only 40Gbps. This means that USB4 version 2 offers twice as much transfer speed. When USB 80Gbps was first introduced by USB-IF, they also launched new logos for it, which can be seen here:
