The new features include the completed rollout of the Password Monitor feature, which should now be available to everyone in the Dev channel. The Rebates feature for shopping online has also completed its rollout and is now enabled by default. Here's everything that's new:
As with every build that's release to Insiders, there are also a handful of changes to improve the overall experience. One of the lists focuses on improvements to reliability, such as fixing crashes or hangs. Here's what's new:
There are also other fixes focused on the browser's behavior:
Finally, there's a list of known issues, which might make the experience less than ideal. These include some extensions not working on the Linux version of the browser:
Microsoft also warns that next week's build is expected to be the last one based on Chromium 91, meaning it'll move up to the Beta channel around that time. Meanwhile, Edge version 90 should be promoted to the stable channel, too.

Patch Tuesday: Here's what's new for Windows 7 and 8.1
by João Carrasqueira
Today is the second Tuesday of April, and with it, Microsoft is once again releasing new updates for all supported versions of Windows, including Windows 10, Windows 8.1, and Windows 7 - as long as you're a business paying for extended security updates.
As usual, there are two types of updates for both Windows 8.1 and Windows 7, as well as their server counterparts - a monthly rollup that's usually installed automatically and a security-only update that you have to install manually.
Starting with Windows 8.1, the monthly rollup update is KB5001382 and you can download it manually here. It includes the following changes:
There's nothing new in terms of known issues, but the one we've been saying for a while now is still here:
Symptom Workaround Certain operations, such as rename, that you perform on files or folders that are on a Cluster Shared Volume (CSV) may fail with the error, “STATUS_BAD_IMPERSONATION_LEVEL (0xC00000A5)”. This occurs when you perform the operation on a CSV owner node from a process that doesn’t have administrator privilege. Do one of the following:
Perform the operation from a process that has administrator privilege. Perform the operation from a node that doesn’t have CSV ownership. Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.
As for the security-only update, that's labeled KB5001393 and you can download it manually here. It only includes the following:
It has the same known issue as the monthly rollup.
Moving on to Windows 7, the monthly rollup update is KB5001335 and you can download it manually here. It includes the following changes:
It has the same known issue as the updates above.
Finally, the security-only update for Windows 7 is KB5001392 and you can download it manually here. It also has the same known issue as the other updates, and includes these changes:
As a reminder, only select users are eligible to get updates for Windows 7, since it's no longer supported for the general public. Also, as mentioned at the start, the monthly rollup updates will generally install automatically over time, but you can install them manually if you prefer. The security-only updates can only be installed manually using the links above.
Flight Simulator World Update IV upgrades Western Europe scenery
by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe
The fourth major content update to Microsoft Flight Simulator arrived today in the form of World Update IV, and this one touts scenery upgrades to Western Europe. France, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg are now packed with scenery enhancements for various cities, airports, landmarks, and more.
All of the countries mentioned above now feature improved elevation data and aerial imagery, while Paris and Amsterdam have now been upgraded with high-resolution 3D photogrammetry. Megève, Nice, and Rotterdam airports have also been given the "hand-crafted" treatment, with 100 other airports in the area receiving visual and logistical improvements.
Over 100 famous landmarks in the region have been implemented manually for extra detail, including "castles and cathedrals, monuments and museums, palaces, bridges, lighthouses, dams, windmills and stadiums." The developer also revealed there are new architectural elements present in its procedural generation algorithm for adding more authenticity.
The complete patch notes for Microsoft Flight Simulator World Update IV (188.8.131.52) can be seen here. The update is now available to download for free for owners of the game on the Microsoft Store and Steam, as well as Xbox Game Pass subscribers. After updating the sim, players can find the new content in the marketplace as the FRBENELUX bundle.
