It should be noted that these updates are so-called preview updates. These are optional and must be manually triggered for download and installation by default. After March 2023, there will be no optional, non-security preview updates for supported editions of Windows 10, version 20H2 and Windows 10, version 21H2. Only cumulative monthly security updates (known as a "B" or Update Tuesday release) will continue for these versions. Windows 10, version 22H2 will continue to receive security and optional releases. In addition, preview updates will now ship in the fourth week of the month (D-Week) (see Optional Windows updates from April 2023 in 4th week of the month).

Windows 10 Preview Update KB5028244

Cumulative preview update KB5028244 is available for Windows 10 Version 22H2 (all versions) and raises the build to 19045.3271. Here are the highlights, what has been fixed.

  • This update addresses an issue that might affect your computer when you are playing a game. Timeout Detection and Recovery (TDR) errors might occur.
  • This update addresses an issue that affects certain display and audio devices. They are missing after your system resumes from sleep.
  • This update addresses an issue that might affect some VPN clients. They might not establish a connection.
  • This update addresses an issue that affects the Search app. It opens in full screen, blocks additional Start menu actions, and you cannot close it.

Below is the list of quality improvements and fixes that Microsoft states for the update (these will go into the security update for the following month). Here I would like to highlight the update of the Windows Kernel Vulnerable Driver Blocklist.

  • This update addresses an issue that affects the Windows Notification Platform. It fails to send notifications from applications to you.
  • This update addresses an issue that affects hybrid joined devices. You cannot sign in to them if they are not connected to the internet. This occurs when you use a Windows Hello for Business PIN or biometric credentials. This issue applies to a cloud trust deployment.
  • This update affects Windows Autopilot profiles. The process to download the Windows Autopilot policy is more resilient. This helps when a network connection might not be fully initialized. This update increases the retry attempts when you try to download the Windows Autopilot profile.
  • This update addresses an issue that might affect Win32 and Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps. They might close when devices enter Modern Standby. Modern Standby is an expansion of the Connected Standby power model. This issue occurs if certain Bluetooth Phone Link features are turned on.
  • This update addresses an issue that affects Event Forwarding Subscriptions. When you add an Event Channel to the subscription, it forwards events you do not need.
  • This update addresses an issue that affects the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) repository. This causes an installation error. The issue occurs when a device does not shut down properly.
  • This update affects user mode printer drivers. They unload unexpectedly. This occurs when you print from multiple print queues to the same printer driver.
  • This update enhances hinting for some of the letters of the Verdana Pro font family.
  • This update affects text edit controls in XAML. You cannot edit the controls again after they become read only. This occurs when you use the new Microsoft Input Method Editor for Japanese, Chinese, and Korean.
  • This update addresses an issue that affects a printing job. An unexpected Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) mode switch can cause the print job to abruptly stop. This occurs when there is an independent hardware vendor (IHV) driver.
  • This update makes Country and Operator Settings Asset (COSA) profiles up to date.
  • This update addresses a deadlock in Internet Protocol Security (IPsec). When you configure servers with IPsec rules, they stop responding. This issue affects virtual and physical servers.
  • This update affects the Windows Kernel Vulnerable Driver Blocklist, DriverSiPolicy.p7b. It adds drivers that are at risk for Bring Your Own Vulnerable Driver (BYOVD) attacks.
  • This update addresses an issue that causes Windows to fail. This occurs when you use BitLocker on a storage medium that has a large sector size.
  • This update addresses an issue that affects I/O over Server Message Block (SMB). It might fail when you use the LZ77+Huffman compression algorithm.

The update is optional and is only offered via Windows Update when the user explicitly checks for updates in the settings page and then selects the optional update to download and install. The update can also be downloaded and installed from the Microsoft Update Catalog. The latest Servicing Stack Update (SSU) is integrated. Microsoft lists known issues with this update in the support article. Further details, including the prerequisites for an installation, can be found in the support article in case of doubt.
