Microsoft releases Windows 10 build 19041.84 to the Slow ring

Today is the second Tuesday of the month, making it Patch Tuesday. And while production versions of Windows 10 get updates, so does the current version in the Slow ring, which is version 2004.

Windows 10 version 2004 RTMed back in December, but that doesn't mean that it's done. Microsoft is letting it cook for a bit longer first, so it's going to get a few months of Patch Tuesday cumulative updates before it's released to the public this spring. It includes the usual range of fixes:

  • Security updates to Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Windows App Platform and Frameworks, Microsoft Graphics Component, Windows Input and Composition, Windows Media, Windows Shell, the Microsoft Scripting Engine, Windows Fundamentals, Windows Management, Windows Virtualization, Windows Peripherals, Windows Network Security and Containers, Windows Storage and Filesystems, and Windows Server.
  • We have fixed an issue where in certain cases, after Windows runs a scheduled task during a maintenance window, a PC may get into an unbootable state after installing Build 19041.21 (KB4535550).

There's also one known issue:

  • We are aware Narrator and NVDA users that seek the latest release of Microsoft Edge based on Chromium may experience some difficulty when navigating and reading certain web content. Narrator, NVDA and the Edge teams are aware of these issues. Users of legacy Microsoft Edge will not be affected. NVAccess has released a NVDA 2019.3 that resolves the known issue with Edge.

Since this is version 2004, it's reasonable to assume that it will be released some time around April, or possibly even May. Either way, if you're on the Slow ring, you can check back for your next cumulative update on next month's Patch Tuesday.
