Patch Tuesday Windows 11, KB5039212 (June 2024)

It’s that time of the month again, or the Patch Tuesday time. Microsoft has finally launched yet another security update for Windows 11, both 23H2 and 22H2 versions. Billed as the KB5039212 update for June 2024, the Redmond-based tech giant steps up to bring a few interesting changes here and there.

While the update (OS Builds 22621.3737 and 22631.3737) brings a handful of performance enhancements here and there, the company stresses that some of the new features on Windows’ share window, which were previously tested for insiders, are now rolling out for everyone.

Some of these features include the ability to create QR codes to share webpages and files, email yourself a file or a webpage, use the mouse to drag a file to any of the breadcrumbs in the current file path in File Explorer’s address bar and sign in to your Microsoft account to use the Windows Backup app.

There are about 37 changes and fixes recorded in the KB5039212 update, so make sure to check that out. You can download Windows 11’s latest monthly security update via the Settings app, then go to Windows Update.

The last month’s update, billed as KB5037853 (OS Builds 22621.3672 and 22631.3672), seems to have a leftover issue, however. Folks have spotted a weird behavior that causes the Windows 11 Settings app to crash when repeatedly selecting different apps from the Lock screen status drop-down menu, and it seems like Microsoft has yet to patch this issue.
