A list of the updates can be found on this Microsoft website. I have extracted the details below. Since March 2021, Microsoft has been integrating the Servicing Stack Updates (SSUs) for newer Windows 10 builds into the cumulative update. March 2023 will be the last preview update for older Windows 10 builds.

Updates for Windows 10 Version 21H1-22H2

For the Windows 10 versions mentioned above, Microsoft only provides one update package, which is named below.

Update KB5034763 for Windows 10 Version 21H1 – 22H2

Cumulative update KB5034763 raises the OS build for all Windows 10 variants to 1904x.4046 – with 21H2, only the Enterprise variant will receive the update. The update only contains security fixes, but no new operating system functions. The cumulative update simply states:

This update addresses security issues for your Windows operating system.

The following fixes are also listed in the support article.

  • This update addresses an issue that affects explorer.exe. It might stop responding. This occurs when you restart or shut down a PC that has a controller accessory attached to it.
  • This update addresses an issue that affects the download of device metadata. Downloads from the Windows Metadata and Internet Services (WMIS) over HTTPS are now more secure.
  • This update addresses an issue that affects the Certificate Authority snap-in. You cannot select the "Delta CRL" option. This stops you from using the GUI to publish Delta CRLs.
  • This update addresses a known issue that might send you error 0xd0000034. This occurs when you try to upgrade some eligible devices to Windows 11 from Windows Update.

Microsoft also points out that this update makes quality improvements to the Servicing Stack (responsible for Microsoft updates). This update is automatically downloaded and installed by Windows Update, but is also available in the Microsoft Update Catalog and via WSUS and WUfB. Please note the information on installation and known problems described in the support article.
