The update fixes issues with memory leak, slower file copying, Microsoft Office files and many more. Here is the complete changelog of update KB5014023 in terms of new features, fixes and improvements.

This non-security update includes quality improvements. The main changes include:

  • New! Introduces new sorting version 6.4.3, which resolves the sorting issue affecting the Japanese half-width katakana.
  • Prevents users from bypassing forced enrollment by disconnecting from the internet when signing in to Azure Active Directory (AAD).
  • Addresses an issue that could cause an AnyCPU application to run as a 32-bit process.
  • Addresses an issue that prevents Azure Desired State Configuration (DSC) scenarios that have multiple partial configurations from working as expected.
  • Addresses an issue that affects remote procedure calls (RPCs) to the Win32_User or Win32_Group WMI class. The domain member running the RPC contacts the primary domain controller (PDC). When multiple RPCs occur simultaneously on many domain members, it can overwhelm the PDC.
  • Addresses an issue that occurs when adding a trusted user, group, or computer that has one-way trust in place. The error message “The selected object does not match the destination source type” appears.
  • Addresses an issue that fails to display the Application Counters section in Performance Monitor performance reports.
  • Addresses a rare issue that prevents Microsoft Excel or Microsoft Outlook from opening.
  • Addresses a memory leak issue that affects Windows systems that are used 24 hours a day, every day of the week.
  • Fixes an issue that affects the IE mode window frame.
  • Addresses an issue that prevents Internet Shortcuts from updating.
  • Addresses an issue that causes an input method editor (IME) to drop a character if you enter the character while the IME is converting the preceding text.
  • Addresses an issue that causes print failures when a low integrity level (LowIL) application prints to a null port.
  • Addresses an issue that prevents BitLocker from encrypting when using the silent encryption option.
  • Addresses an issue that occurs when you apply multiple WDAC policies. This could prevent scripts from running when policies allow scripts to run.
  • Addresses an issue that affects the behavior and orientation of a mouse cursor shape for Microsoft Defender Application Guard (MDAG), Microsoft Office, and Microsoft Edge. This issue occurs when you turn on a virtual graphics processing unit (GPU).
  • Fixed an issue that could prevent the Remote Desktop client application from working when you log off.
  • Addresses a reliability issue in the Terminal Services Gateway (TS Gateway) service that causes clients to disconnect randomly.
  • Deploys search highlights to domain-joined devices. For more information on the feature, see Group Configuration: Search Highlights in Windows. You can configure company-wide search highlights using Group Policy settings defined in the Search.admx file and Policy CSP – Search.
  • Addresses an issue that displays the wrong image for the Input Method Editor (IME) mode indicator icon when you enable the font attenuation policy. For more information, see Block unapproved fonts in a company.
  • Addresses an issue that causes a yellow exclamation mark to appear in Device Manager. This occurs when a remote Bluetooth device advertises the Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) (SRC) source.
  • Addresses an issue in which the cluster’s Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) provider (ClustWMI.dll) generates high CPU usage in WMIPRVSE.EXE.
  • Addresses an issue that causes Microsoft’s deduplication driver to consume large amounts of nonpaged pool memory. Therefore, this exhausts all the physical memory of the machine, which makes the server unresponsive.
  • Addresses an issue that slows file copying due to incorrect calculation of write buffers in Cache Manager.
  • Addresses an issue that may cause a system to become unresponsive when a user signs out if Microsoft OneDrive is in use.
  • Addresses a known issue that may prevent recovery discs (CDs or DVDs) from starting if you created them using the Backup and Restore (Windows 7) application in Control Panel. This issue occurs after installing Windows Updates released on January 11, 2022 or later.
  • Addresses a known issue that affects some GPUs and may cause applications to quit unexpectedly or cause intermittent issues that affect some applications that use Direct3D 9. You may also receive an event log error in Windows Logs/Applications, and the faulty module is d3d9on12.dll and the exception code is 0xc0000094.
  • Addresses an issue that prevents the file system check code (FSCTL_SET_INTEGRITY_INFORMATION_EX) from handling its input parameter correctly.
